Mississauga, Ontario – Porsche has built its 10,000th Panamera, less than three months after the four-door sports car went on sale.

The milestone vehicle, a Platinum Silver Metallic Panamera Turbo, will be delivered to a customer in Singapore.

“Sales of the Panamera have really taken off,” said Michael Macht, chairman of the board of Porsche AG. “We have already secured over 9,000 orders. Shortly after it was launched, our Gran Turismo won the coveted Golden Steering Wheel and Auto Trophy awards in Germany. It has also won many international prizes.”

The Panamera 4S has a global share of 44 per cent, putting it ahead of the Turbo’s 36 per cent, and the Panamera S model’s 20 per cent. In Canada, 76 Panameras had been delivered by the end of November 2009.

The company plans to build a total of 20,000 Panamera models per year. It is manufactured at the Porsche plant in Leipzig, sharing a production line with the Cayenne.
