A Two-Door Porsche Panamera Is Still A Possibility

A two-door version of the Porsche Panamera would take on the BMW 8 Series, Bentley Continental, and others.


  • It would be the 928’s spiritual successor.

  • It is unlikely that it will come with this generation Panamera.

  • Rumours of this car date back almost 18 months.


Porsche has always built sports cars and only once were they tempted to build a real 4-seater 2-door version. The Porsche 928 was this car and it was sold between 1997 and 1995. A two-door version of the Panamera would revive the true 4-seater coupe at Porsche.

Rumours of Porsche considering a Panamera coupe date back to the spring of 2019 which is why motoring.com.au asked about it during a virtual roundtable on the new Panamera. Porsche’s Panamera product line chief Thomas Friemuth responded with the following:

Porsche 928 vs. Panamera turbo
@ Stephan Lindloff

“We have not finally decided yet. So we are just discussing this topic for several years as you can imagine since other competitors also have two-door cars. We’re not finally yet ready to decide whether to do this or not. We have quite a nice two-door car in our program called the 911.”

Sure, the 911 offers seating for four however no normal-sized adult could ever spend more than a moment in the rear.

He added: “[But] We are always looking at new opportunities to get new markets and more customers. I can talk about it when we have the decision for it – not yet. I have a lot of ideas.”

As a coupe and convertible, the 2-door Panamera would take on other grand touring cars such as the BMW 8 Series, Aston Martin Vantage, the upcoming new Mercedes-Benz SL, and a few others. Should Porsche go follow through, we’re likely not see it before the 2025 model year.
