Porsche Panamera gets a gold certification with their 10-year edition
It’s been 10 years since the Porsche Panamera was released, making its debut in 2009. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Panamera line, and in true Porsche style, they are launching a limited-edition car release. The new Porsche Panamera 10 Years Edition features exclusive design highlights for additional comfort, style and safety.
To find out more, we asked the motoring experts at Design 911 for their take on this special 10-year edition release. Here is what they said.
The German automobile manufacturer specialises in high performance vehicles that fit what they call ‘The Porsche Principle’ – a way to transform performance into speed through intelligent design.
The latest edition to the Porsche fleet is expected in the first quarter of 2020, with the standard Panamera 10 Years Edition costing $104,650, the Panamera 4 10 Years Edition costing $108,850 and the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid 10 Years Edition coming with a price tag of $118,250. These brand-new variants are packed with even more luxury equipment and gain features like a surround system designed by Bose.
Those with a keen eye for Porsche cars will easily be able to spot the difference. It doesn’t matter which trim level you pick; the 10 Years Edition comes with 21-inch Panamera Sport Design Wheels in a white gold metallic satin finish. The same colour adorns the emblems on the interior and exterior, in addition to the upholstery’s contrasting stitching.
Even though the company will custom paint a car in any colour for a fee, black red and white were always the most popular colour choices for the super cars and are still chosen today for their iconic look and almost infamous style.
Not stopping there, Porsche has loaded the Panamera 10 Years Edition with more equipment than ever before. They ride on the brand’s air suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management and Power Steering, plus LED Matrix headlights featuring the company’s Porsche Dynamic Light System.
They have even expanded the driver assistance features adding Park Assist with Surround-View Cameras, Lane Change Assist, Lane-Keep Assist and Soft-Close Doors to add to the luxury of the interior. Opting for the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid 10 Years Edition also gets the buyer the generally optional 7.2-kilowatt on-board charger instead of the standard 3.6-kW unit.
Not only can Porsche celebrate the fact that it’s their tenth anniversary, but they have sold over 250,000 Panamera units since it first premiered on April 19, 2009, at the World Financial Center in Shanghai, China.
Buyers can now be part of the brand’s rich history and say that they have purchased one of the longest car names in history – the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo 10 Years Edition. Alongside this, they can boast a $10,000 premium over the original Panamera range, so they know they are getting the most for their money.
