Porsche Delivers Over 22,500 Panameras In Its First Year

Was this really a surprise to anyone? Porsche‘s entry into the luxury sedan segment has been a huge success, having delivered over 22,500 Panameras to their owners in its first year of production.

By blending Porsche performance with its unmistakable styling (for good or bad), the Panamera has filled a void for those that are stuck needing a sedan, but still like the idea of owning a Porsche. Sure a Mercedes-Benz S-Class or even BMW’s 7-Series is nice, but nothing beats saying you have Porsche that’s full of Porschey performance goodness.

And the breakdown of its worldwide distribution? 2,530 in Germany, 300 in Hong Kong, 223 in Tokyo, 188 in Shanghai, 285 in Dubai, 203 in Moscow and 196 in Munich. Here in the U.S., there’s 890 of them roaming in Los Angeles and 760 in New York.

The Panamera 4S model is the top seller (9,3494), with the Turbo coming second (6,171) and the S being a third (4,563). Oh, and that six-cylinder model that was just recently released? 2,390 delivered. No rest for the luxurious we say.

PRESS RELEASE

Porsche Delivers 22,518 Panameras in First Year on the Market

Company’s First Four-door Gran Turismo is in High Demand Worldwide STUTTGART, Germany and ATLANTA, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ — Just one year after its initial market launch in Europe, the Porsche Panamera has exceeded sales expectations with customer deliveries of 22,518 internationally.

In the U.S., where Porsche’s fourth model line was introduced in October of 2009, sales of the Panamera are already at 6,188. In Germany, where the Panamera is built at Porsche’s production facility in Leipzig, 2,530 cars were delivered. These results come as Porsche is enjoying a strong initial customer response to the recently launched V6 Panamera models–a fact that attests to the successful development of an even larger customer segment for this sporty Porsche four door.

In major markets throughout the world, the Gran Turismo has found a large number of fans. As expected, interest in the four-seater is significant in Asia: 300 Panamera models were delivered in Hong Kong, 223 in Tokyo and 188 vehicles were delivered in Shanghai, where the Gran Turismo was initially unveiled in April 2009. Very gratifying figures were also reported by other cosmopolitan cities, such as Dubai (285), Moscow (203), and in Munich (196).

In the U.S., some 890 vehicles are already cruising the streets of Los Angeles and 760 on the streets of New York.

“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. The color selection also keeps Panamera drivers in line with the latest trends. So far, the most popular colors for the Gran Turismo have been basalt black metallic, carrara white and carbon grey metallic.

The Panamera Turbo can be customized to your personal tastes with a 40 HP performance enhancer, as well as a sport design package. In addition, the Porsche Exclusive and Porsche Tequipment packages are available for each model as add-ons to the standard series equipment to make your vehicle even more personal.
