An Autocar report claims that Porsche submitted an application for the ‘GT5’ trademark on 13 January 2015 which still awaiting approval. The company got approval for ‘GT4’ trademark in October 2014 and the following March it unveiled the Porsche Cayman GT4 at the Geneva Motor Show. Similarly a new GT5 model for any of its cars, except the Cayman, could roll out soon after the trademark gets approved.
The report suggests that like the 911 GT3, the GT5 could be a motorsports-developed version of one of its sports cars. The GT5 could, however, also be a flagship version of the Panamera or Macan, says the report. A Porsche spokesperson refused to comment on what the GT5 trademark would lead to.
Andreas Preuninger, Manager of Porsche High Performance Cars, suggested at the unveiling of the Cayman GT4 that there was more room for more high performance models, as per the report. When he was asked if the Cayenne’s and Macan’s increasing sales would be followed by more motorsports-developed cars, he replied saying that that is absolutely his suggestion, hinting at more GT models in the future.
