According to Car Magazine, the company was granted the trademark last September, implying that those rumours could soon be a reality.
Porsche is giving away very little in terms of future product plans, however, the company has reportedly identified gaps in its line-up.

While no official word has been given by the car maker, the 960 is pegged to feature a 3.9-litre quad-turbo flat-eight engine capable of churning out around 485kW of power and 800Nm of torque. This could give the supercar a 0-100km/h time of under 3 seconds.
Both rear- and all-wheel drive configurations could feature.
It’s also claimed that the mid-engined supercar would benefit from a lightweight body made from a blend of aluminium, carbon-fibre and titanium.
The 960 was initially said to be coming sometime in 2017, however a revised date of 2019 has surfaced as it would likely arrive after the next-generation 911, due out in early 2018.
So, while the 960 appears to remain on the table for Porsche, only time will tell when and if we’ll see the supercar.
