Porsche prepares north american debut of Panamera

The extremely popular Porsche Panamera has made its arrival in North America. A couple dozen Porsche Panameras have made their way last week in Monterrey. After the official USA debut that will take place in Monterrey, California at the Monterrey Classic Car Week, the Porsche Panamera will move towards will move on to a more important auto event, the Pebble Beach Concours d`Elegance.

Porsche has realized an entire fleet of videos in order to promote the Panamera. The first one shows the dozens of Panameras arriving in the USA and a first test drive of the Panamera 4S that takes place on the Pacific Coast Highway. The video ends with the Porsche Zentrum facility that was specially built on the grounds of Quail Lodge in Carmel. Quite a nice ending to a video, isn`t it?

The Porsche Panamera S will have a base price of 89.800 dollars. The Panamera 4S that comes with an all wheel drive has a base price tag of 93.800 dollars. The turbo version will have a huge base price of no less than 132.600 dollars. Also, a V6 version and a hybrid one are under development by Porsche.

It will be very interesting to see how well the extremely fast and luxurious Panamera will sell in the current financial and economical crisis conditions. People tend to think that there will always be a functional niche for the luxurious cars, no matter how poor the mass population will be. I guess that only time will tell.
