The latest coming from the automakers is that now their entire focus is on expanding the portfolio, although as of now there are no clear reports coming in with regards to this.
There were rumors coming in recently that said that Porsche now is planning to include a small version of the Panamera sedan which is codenames as Pajun. This rumored smaller version of the Panamera sedan was to compete with the BMW 5-series. Along with this, another speculated model is what is being called the ‘Project 960’ that would be rolling out. It would be a two seater supercar, would have a mid-size engine that will have the twin-turbocharged V8 and will be capable of producing 600bhp.

However, there were other statements made that shunned the idea that there will be any roadster model that would be developed and priced lower than the Boxster right now. There are also speculations that the Project 551 has been postponed.
