Porsche working on Panamera convertible

Porsche Panamera Gran Turismo teaser f

Recent reports have been claiming that Porsche is already at work on a Panamera convertible. The Porsche Panamera convertible will have only two doors, instead of four and is expected to use a soft-top. The Panamera convertible apparently requires a two-door layout in order for it to have the extra rigidity demanded by the lack of a fixed roof. Removing two of it’s doors, will also make up for the extra weight added by the folding mechanism for the roof.

The Porsche Panamera convertible is predicted to be priced around 105,000 Euros making it around 11,000 Euros more than the standard sedan.

Development chief at Porsche Wolfgang Duerheimer said it’s logic for the new sedan is to have more versions, like the 911 which has 14 derivates. So, the launch of the Porsche Panamera convertible is looking a near certainty.
