25,000th Porsche Panamera Rolls Off The Line

I’m sure Porsche has meticulous record keeping along with tight, pre-planned production schedules that are set potentially years in advance, so this should not be a surprise to me. I’m always still a little surprised though when they announce different production milestones like this.

The milestone this time around is the 25,000th Porsche Panamera. It’s a Ruby Red Panamera with the 3.6 liter 6-cylinder engine. A lucky US customer will be the recipient of the milestone marker car. I wonder if they’ll receive any kind of certificate or special plaque with the car?

Here’s what truly amazing. It took Porsche less than a year to build 25,000 Panamera Gran Turismos. I find that very impressive given that the Panamera represents an entry into a completely different category for Porsche and thus uncharted territory.

Also in the press release was a reminder that Porsche will introduce a Panamera model featuring hybrid technology. It will use a hybrid drive system similar to what powers the 2011 Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid. It’s to go on sale this fall.

  1. Jim Breeden says:

    This sure looks like a Pan S, with bright Al around the windows and silver calipers.

  2. I’ll be honest, I thought that 2,500 was going to be a stretch.

  3. In matter of design, I disagree with Euginewoods’ definition of “flaccid design”. I think, the Panamera has a quite harmonic design with only one aesthetically weak point: the rear doors
