As Aston Martin Rapide is still yet to be launched, Porsche announced that the 10,000th Panamera has rolled off the assembly lines at the Leipzig plant. It is a remarkable milestone for Porsche Panamera considering its launch time and the fact that people are actually interested in this uggo! Apparently it’s selling like hot cakes, so Porsche’s plans to build 20,000 units per year might change soon. The 10,000th model is a 500 HP platinum silver metallic Panamera Turbo which will be soon shipped to Singapore to unite with its owner.
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)”.
