Porsche builds 25,000th Panamera… already

Porsche builds 25,000th Panamera… already

When the Porsche Panamera was introduced last year, many dismissed the sedan as oddly proportioned and thoroughly unattractive. As the media began to test and review the all-new Porsche, it was a different story and the Panamera was given big ups for its dynamic handling and excellent powertrains. Now, less than a year after the vehicle’s introduction, Porsche has reason to celebrate as the Leipzig factory has just built its 25,000th Panamera. That’s not much for a mass-market automaker, but seriously good-going for a sports car maker that in most years is happy to produce 100,000 models globally.

Panamera number 25,000 is Ruby Red and packs a 300-horsepower 3.6-litre V6 that was added to the range back in May. The special Panamera will be delivered to the U.S. market, where to date 5,000 of the sedans have been sold. Porsche looks to keep up the Panamera momentum with a hybrid variant that is expected to arrive sometime next year.
