Porsche is understood to have applied for a trademark on the name ‘GT5’, although just what it will be used for is a mystery.
And, with Porsche’s roadgoing GT models historically aligned with a full-blooded racing counterpart, launching a GT5 model - for which there exists no relevant FIA racing series - would require a re-think of the badge’s purpose.
Adding credence to that potential direction is a comment from Porsche GT division boss Andreas Preuninger, who earlier this year told British magazine Autocar that he could see room for more motorsports-inspired models in the company’s wider line-up.
In Porsche’s passenger range, GT5 models would likely sit above the existing flagships, which include the $284,700 420kW Cayenne Turbo and the $444,600 420kW Panamera Turbo S.
A GT5 model could also appear with the Macan, although that range so far tops out with the $122,400 294kW Turbo, suggesting a Turbo S model may yet appear.
For its part, Porsche has yet to confirm its intentions for the GT5 badge.
