Report: https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/new-panamera-and-taycan-lead-porsches-ev-future

Porsche is preparing to introduce a second generation of the wildly successful Porsche Taycan EV – and it will be twinned with an electric version of the Porsche Panamera as part of a new “electrified luxury” plan under which up to six electric models will be ushered in by the end of this decade.
Both new EVs are based on a sporting version of the Volkswagen Group’s Scalable Systems Platform (SSP), which is being developed by Porsche.
The so-called SSP Sport structure adopts the backbone of the SSP architecture set to be used by other more volume-orientated electric Volkswagen Group models. However, it will be combined with what have been described to Autocar as “Porsche-specific modules”.
Among the key architectural developments being pushed by Porsche for the new SSP Sport platform is a low cabin floor, courtesy of a slimline battery pack, and rear footwells (or foot garages, as they’re known at Porsche) similar to those of the J1 platform used by the existing Taycan.

Sounds about right but not sure if they really need the Panamera anymore at that point unless I’m wrong.

A Taycan is considerably sportier than a Panamera -- it's a four door 911. It's unfortunate that the new car is reportedly on a shared Volkswagen platform. The Taycan being on a bespoke Porsche platform for the first gen made it "special" and a "real Porsche".

No mention of the new electric Cayman in that article. Hopefully, that will be here before either of those cars. I am looking forward to driving something smaller and lighter.
