Mississauga, Ontario – Porsche will debut its all-new Panamera Gran Turismo to the North American public during Monterey Peninsula’s Classic Car Week, which runs August 9 to 16. The week includes shows such as the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the Monterey Historics and The Quail.

The four-door sports car will go on sale at Porsche’s 12 Canadian dealers on October 17, 2009.

To celebrate the debut, Porsche has joined several other prestigious brands in sponsoring the Concours, The Quail, and a Motorsports Gathering. The Quail Lodge will be the site of a Porsche Experience Centre, where VIP test-drives will be conducted throughout the week. For the first time, Pebble Beach has introduced a Porsche category at the show.

Porsche will also be the featured marque at the 36th Rolex Monterey Historic Automobile Races, and will bring a number of significant and rare historic race cars to the event.
