Since its introduction in October of 2009 in the United States, the Porsche Panamera has surpassed expectations with 22,518 sold world-wide. The successful recent introduction of a V6 Panamera has been instrumental in widening this luxury four door sportscar’s appeal, consisting of about 10% of sales.
“Our corporate strategy of value-oriented growth has proven itself to be a successful model: With the Panamera, Porsche has clearly positioned itself with the sportiest automobile in the high-end and luxury-class market and achieves already a 13 percent share of its segment today,” summarized Bernhard Maier, Member of the Management Board for Sales and Marketing of Porsche AG.
There are five models available in the new Gran Turismo series: Panamera and Panamera 4 with 300 HP and a six-cylinder engine, Panamera S and Panamera 4S (400 HP and an eight-cylinder engine), as well as the Panamera Turbo (500 HP and an eight-cylinder engine).
With 9,394 vehicles delivered worldwide, the Panamera 4S is at the head of the charts, followed by the performance-leader, Panamera Turbo (6,171 vehicles) and the Panamera S (4,563 vehicles).
The six-cylinder-model Panamera, introduced only a few weeks ago, has already been delivered to 2,390 customers.
