Porsche has reportedly confirmed plans to introduce a new mid-engined supercar to sit between the quickest 911 and the upcoming 918 Spyder super-hybrid.

Following reports last month that Porsche has been considering a less-exclusive alternative to the limited-edtion 918, US magazine Car & Driver says the rumoured supercar is a rumour no more.

The magazine describes "significant detailed discussion" within Porsche, but, short of yet-more speculation, few 'confirmed' details are actually offered.

With the likes of Ferrari's 458 in its sights, the new Porsche would likely utilise the 'Modular Sports Architecture' being developed together by Lamborghini, Audi and Porsche - all members of the larger Volkswagen Group.

To outdo the top-shelf 911 models and compete with the Ferrari 458, the mid-engined supercar would need to produce upwards of 400kW and deliver 0-100km/h times below four seconds and top speeds above 320km/h.

While the 918 will utilise the hybrid systems previewed in its concept form, the new supercar would likely avoid the next-generation technology - for tradition, maybe, and perhaps for its development cost.

If Porsche boss Matthias Muller is looking to draw attention back to the company's sporting roots, this is certainly the right recipe.
