During an interview with Autocar at the press launch of the latest-generation Cayenne, the automaker’s research and development boss Michael Steiner said additional “purist versions of sports cars with no limitation” on production numbers could be on the cards. This means that Porsche is actually open to the idea of building accessible Porche 911 models in the vein of the limited-run and highly-desirable 911R.

The statement from Steiner is far from confirmation that Porsche will actually work on such a model, but he did mention that Porsche found that many of its customers enjoy a raw driving experience after launching the 911R. An affordable and accessible Porsche 911 for purists make sense and could take the shape of a mid-range model with a six-speed ‘box, minimal weight, sound deadening and one of the company’s new turbocharged engines. Porsche would simply need to ensure such a model wouldn’t undermine the Boxster and Cayman family. (which we highly doubt will happen)
