Looks like Porsche too is joining the four-door coupe game, and they’re coming in heavy. Based on a report from Automobilmag which investigates all the future plans for the entire VW Group, Porsche is developing a new model based on the MSB platform that will underpin all of the group’s rear-wheel drive based cars. It’s called the 960.
Porsche 960 is known internally as “Fefi,” for Ferrari fighter, which is weird because Ferrari does not have a four-door coupe. The 960 is of course a super saloon powered by a twin-turbo flat-six, something like what you would find in a 911 GT2, with around 600-hp.
The MSB Platform is quite a flexible system and can be used for a wide range of high-performance models. The engine can go anywhere in the MSB – front, mid, or rear – an it can be rear- or all-wheel-drive depending on the type of car it’s being used for.
Porsche 960 will launch in 2015 and sits above the Panamera in the manufacturer’s range.
