Porsche are reportedly starting work on a brand new four-door coupe that is supposedly penciled in for a late 2015 market launch.

It will be known to the public as the Porsche 960, but internally the engineers are calling it the Fefi (Ferrari Fighter) which confirms the market the new model will be targeted towards.

It will use Volkswagen's brand new MSB-M mid-engined rear-wheel-drive platform that has now been given the green light by Volkswagen bigwigs. Power will be drawn froma 3.8-liter twin-turbo unit generating around 600 hp (447 kW / 608 PS) and 550 lb-ft (745 Nm) of torque.

The 960 will fit into the Porsche line-up above the Panamera and will carry a sticker price of at least €250,000 ($328,800).

The 960 will be a 2 door, 2 seat sportscar, slotted above the 911, below the 918. It will not use any of VW's platforms. Looks like someone posted the April 1st article by mistake.

I can't imagine a mid-engined 4 door coupe looks like... the car might be very long? or very width? Really puzzle me...

How does one do a mid-engined 4 door coupe? Does the engine separate the driver and front passenger from the rear seat occupants... lol

"Four door coupes" are great for people in the market for a sedan. If I want to buy a coupe, I won't buy a four door car and I can't imagine anyone looking for a coupe buying what is essentially a sportier sedan.

Who wrote this? There isn't even a source. Looks like 100% BS article to me. The rumored 960 is a mid engined 2 door 458 fighter. NOT a mid engined RWD 4 door coupe.

Hasn't Porsche already been fighting Ferrari with cars like the GT2RS? And I bet the 918 is going to be faster than a few ferraris.

This story doesn't sound true. A mid-engine four door coupe? aren't we getting a little carried away. How useful is that platform for VW?
