Is This The Porsche Pajun?

The Porsche Design division of the Porsche automaker – that is, the branch that focuses on un-car things like cellphones, sunglasses, etc. – is creating a luxury apartment suite in Miami, Florida. It will feature 132 apartments, each with an en-suite garage; the building will feature futuristic car elevators to transport residents’ wheels up to their suite.

In one of the renderings for this super-luxury apartment building, something very interesting was featured: a car which, while sharing many of the current Porsche Panamera’s design features, possesses a noticeably shorter wheelbase, and a very Cayman-esque derrière. Thanks to a post from Autoblog, this has our imaginations running wild, and asking ourselves if this could possibly be an easter egg/sneak peak at the anticipated, smaller Porsche Pajun (“Panamera Junior”) sedan.

Of course, as Autoblog notes, the Porsche Pajun has been postponed until 2019 at the soonest. Aye, like all good things that the German manufacturer has hinted at, it will arrive later than anticipated, or perhaps never at all. But the car rendered is almost certainly not the full-size Panamera, as it features a tighter, more lithe body with an awkward roofline not dissimilar to the one that the next-generation Panamera is keen on losing.

So is this an easter egg? Does the Porsche Design arm of the German automaker know something that the rest of us don’t? Or is the smaller Porsche Pajun sedan still as far off as reports say?
