10,000th Panamera leaves the Leipzig plant
Everyday we are seeing an ever increasing volume of customers dropping in to the Beverly Hills Porsche showroom asking to see the all new Porsche Panamera. Reactions are mixed but one fact remains. The Panamera is a real hit with the LA movers and shakers. We are selling all models at a record pace. Porsche dealers worldwide are seeing a lot of fantastic response to the Panamera in the form of orders.
Today, just three months after the new Panamera went on sale in Germany and just two months on the market in the USA the 10,000th car rolled off the production line at the Leipzig plant of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart. The 500 HP platinum silver metallic Panamera Turbo will be delivered to a customer in Singapore.
Michael Macht, Chairman of the Board of Porsche AG: "Sales of the Panamera have really taken off: we have already secured over 9,000 orders. Shortly after it was launched our Gran Turismo won the coveted "Goldenes Lenkrad" ["Golden steering wheel"] and "Auto Trophy" awards in Germany. It has also won many international prizes." The Panamera 4S is proving particularly popular and has a share of 44 per cent - putting it ahead of the Turbo (36 per cent) and the Panamera S (20 per cent).
The company plans to build 20,000 Panamera per year across the whole product cycle. The fourth Porsche model series is being manufactured at the Leipzig plant in the so-called model mix, sharing a production line with the Cayenne SUV. The innovative, highly streamlined production is seen as a model of technological and economic excellence for the automobile industry worldwide.
