I can still remember when I saw my first 928 Porsche back in the 80?s. At the time there was nothing like it. I couldn?t recall a car with more beautiful lines and the rear styling was to die for. Unfortunately, it dated and Porsche struggled to keep it looking modern until they finally let it slip into the night in 1995, the end of a 22 year run and certainly nothing to be ashamed of.

At the time it was not considered a ?real? Porsche. It was watercooled (heaven forbid) and front-engined (sacrebleu!) and more of a GT than a sportscar so it tended to fit in the Porsche line-up a bit like a square peg in a round hole.

Well, times have changed and now watercooled and front-engined are no longer concepts to be whispered at Porsche, even the 911 is watercooled. The Cayenne SUV is selling up a storm and any lingering old-school traditions are now out the window. All of which has paved the way for the development of the Panamera, a four-door front engined GT due in 2009. It would seem only logical that a two-door version of the Panamera would be created in the tradition of the old 928.

Leftlanenews has reported that several months ago spies at Porsche?s test centre in Germany saw an unusual looking vehicle using a heavily modified version of the old 928?s body, on a wider track and sporting a bunch of measuring and data equipment.

Leftlanenews also reported that Germany?s Auto Zeitung has confirmed that development work on a two door spiritual successor to the 928 is underway alongside the Panamera and that it should be expected to arrive shortly after the Panamera is debuted. Now we just need some photographic evidence?
