Porsche 928 May Come Back As Porsche 929

Most of us remember the Porsche 928, one of only four front-engined coupes and Zuffenhausen’s first ever mass-produced V8 car.

It was left in the pages of history just before the death of the 968, the last of the front-engined Porsches for the 1990s. Now, it’s pegged for revival and scheduled for a 2014/2015 release.

Rumored to be badged the 929, sources high within Porsche have said that this new model will give Porsche a chance to participate in an influx of sales involving cars such as the Aston Martin DB9, Bentley Continental GT, and the Ferrari California.

As part of the circulating idea, the 929 will possibly be made in two variants: coupe and soft-top convertible. If Porsche were to produce the 929, it would be based on the preexisting Panamera platform. However, whether that would be a feasible option is up for question.

“At the moment, derivatives of the Panamera are not planned for the first generation,” said the inside source. “We hope to add them to the second generation, provided we can find necessary capacity.”

Porsche earlier announced that it will be investing some big bucks to increase production in its Leizpig plant, where the controversial Cayenne SUV is made. This implies that Porsche may very well have the ability to produce the 929 and opens up opportunity for the Panamera to be produced in Leizpig due to the plant’s expansion. That said, the new Volkswagen Tiguan-based Cajun compact-SUV can be made along side the Tiguan at VW’s Hannover plant, which ultimately can lead to the Panamera platform’s expansion and in turn, the 929.

“We have ideas to extend the Panamera line-up, including other body derivatives — a shooting brake, for example,” the source finished.

Porsche Consulting Inc. headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, will commence operations in October with ten consultants. It will be the third foreign subsidiary after Milan in Italy and Sao Paulo in Brazil.

“In the past five years we have generated income of approximately 20 million US dollars with local customers in the USA. That is positively crying out for a local presence. We are pleased to be able to announce this step”, says Norman Firchau, President and CEO of the new subsidiary Porsche Consulting Inc. in the USA.

Porsche Consulting is also growing in Germany. Approximately 50 new consultants are to be taken on in the current year. The recruitment focus is on (industrial) engineers having majored in vehicle and automotive technology, mechanical engineering, manufacturing industry or aerospace but also economists having majored in production, logistics, procurement and purchasing, development or sales.

Porsche Consulting is a leading consulting company in Germany. Working on behalf of their customers – ranging from the global business group to the SME – consultants optimise processes from production to supplier management, in research and development, marketing, in sales and in administration.

Customers hail from the most diverse sectors such as the automotive industry, mechanical and electrical engineering, the construction industry, the aerospace industry, the consumer goods industry, commerce, banking and insurance, the health sector, traffic and transport.

In addition to Lean Management, namely the reduction of activities that do not add value, the elimination of waste and the rise of value creation, the US subsidiary will focus on Supply Chain Management and on optimising research and development processes. In the process, Porsche Consulting Inc. aims to generate 20 per cent of its revenue with Porsche and Volkswagen and 80 per cent with existing and new customers in the USA.
