S10_0383Mississauga, Ontario – Porsche has built its 25,000th Panamera at its factory in Leipzig, only ten months after the start of worldwide sales.

The milestone vehicle, a red Panamera with 3.6-litre six-cylinder engine, will be delivered to a customer in the U.S.

“The benchmark performance of our Panamera V6 models wins over our customers worldwide,” said Bernhard Maier, executive vice-president for sales and marketing. “Even in the U.S.A., a country with a preference for V8 engines, they impress with their efficiency and sportiness. The four-door combines these aspects with the comfort and exclusivity of the luxury class.”

The Panamera has been on sale globally since September 2009, initially with the eight-cylinder Panamera S, 4S and Turbo. The six-cylinder Panamera and Panamera 4 were introduced in May 2010. The Leipzig facility also builds the Cayenne.
