We have great news for all the Porsche fans out there: firm’s boss Matthias Muller has just announced that the manufacturer is considering a new model that could be slotted between the 911 and the 918 Spyder.

Porsche already announced that it will build a smaller baby-Cayenne dubbed Cajun, which will be based on the Audi Q5 crossover, and sources confirmed the fact that the design of this car is already completed.

Apparently, the Porsche Cajun will be built as a two-door in the first years of production and will take on the 2012 Range Rover Evoque.

The new crossover is expected to receive the same engines found on the Audi Q5, including a diesel engine. A hybrid version is also considered. Regarding the Porsche 911 Spyder, the new car is expected to make its debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

Under the hood we will find a powerful V8 engine delivering 500 hp but also two electric engines delivering 218 hp, which means that the total output of the car will exceed 700 hp.

In the concept form, the car can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 320 km/h (198 mph).

What is really interesting is that Porsche promises a medium fuel consumption of just just 3 (three) liters/100 kilometers (equal to approximately 78 mpg U.S.), outstanding for a sports car and will deliver just 70 grams of CO2 per kilometer. [via AutoWeek.nl]
