Porsche appears to be reading a new model larger than the midsize Cayenne crossover.

Citing dealer sources, Automotive News (subscription required) reported Tuesday that Porsche held a meeting last week with some US dealerships, where it presented a picture of a vehicle longer and wider than the Cayenne.

The vehicle, which is supposed to go on sale in the second half of the decade, was not a traditional crossover. One dealer described it as “part sedan, part crossover.” Another said it had a “flat back design.”

Such descriptions point to something more like a station wagon, probably big enough to fit in the third row seats.

Porsche may be best known for its 911 sports car, but the company’s best sellers are the Cayenne and Macan crossovers, which have proven popular with family-oriented buyers.

From Germany Handelsblatt reported last year that the trio of Landjet vehicles will be built at a plant in Hannover, Germany. They are also claimed to come with at least 400 miles of range and a high level of autonomous driving ability. The goal is to have a credible contender for a next-generation Tesla Model S, Handelsblatt reported.
