In 2005 we first told RainyDayGarage readers about Porsche's plans to deliver a four-door sports car by 2009. In the intervening four years, Porsche has been sending us a nice collection of updates and teasers. Earlier this year and true to their schedule, Porsche announced that they have started production of the Panamera with first delivery to customers in 2010.
We have been receiving a steady stream of press materials from Porsche, now with actual photos instead of designer sketches of the Panamera. The slickest yet is the photo-book which came a little while back. It covered all of the new features of the Porsche with an obvious emphasis on the "four-seatedness" aspects of the car.
The Panamera has been shown at a few car shows around the world, but hands-on experience in Boston has not been available until now. The Larz Anderson Auto Museum and Herb Chambers Porsche will be hosting an event tomorrow night to unveil the Panamera to folks in Boston! Details are here.
We have voiced our reservations about a 4-door Porsche since the beginning, but we remain open-minded about the car. Regardless, it will be a fantastic night because of the venue. So if you like to hit the road with friends, now it will be possible to do it in a Porsche :-) [Permalink] - Porsche Panamera Unveiling
NOTE: These LAAM events are VERY popular, so get there early. Look for us and say "Hi." We love meeting local RainyDayMagazine readers!
