Mueller sees the gap between the 911 and 918 as the target for a new Porsche model. Mueller stated that the new Porsche could cost between 250,000 euros to 400,000 euros.
Porsche is also considering a new flat-eight boxer engine for the new supercar. Porsche engineers are reportedly frustrated with the fact that Porsche’s current six-cylinder cannot be expanded beyond 4.0-liters. Also if Porsche wants to fully compete with Ferrari, it needs an eight-cylinder engine.
The new Porsche supercar is part of Porsche’s plans to increase its global sales to 200,000 units by 2018, up from 97,000 in 2010.
