Since its introduction in 2009 Porsche Panamera sales has always been going up the hill, which is kinda odd because not only it’s an expensive car, it’s not exactly a looker!
But it comes with a Porsche badge, and that’s enough reason for most people to go ahead and buy it.
Now in July 2010 the car reaches a significant milestone in sales as the 25,000th unit leaves the factory in Leipzig to reach its American customer. This sale number for a luxury four-door Grand Tourer with a valuable badge such as Porsche, is extraordinary even though it means that Porsche is no longer an exclusive marque!
The anniversary vehicle, a ruby-red Panamera with a particularly efficient 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine (300 hp), will be delivered to a customer in the USA. “The benchmark performance of our Panamera V6 models wins over our customers worldwide. Even in the USA, a country with a preference for V8 engines, they impress with their efficiency and sportiness. The 4-door combines these aspects with the comfort and exclusivity of the luxury class,” says Porsche Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing Bernhard Maier.
