Atlanta, Georgia – The New York-based Luxury Institute has rated Porsche the most prestigious luxury automobile for 2006, topping a field of thirteen brands including Acura, Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Infiniti, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Mercedes, Saab and Volvo. Porsche was also singled out for making customers feel special throughout the entire ownership experience.
