Porsche Panamera to be released late 2009

In their never ending quest to confuse people, Porsche will be releasing a new SEDAN next summer. Now really, who asked for this? They need this goofy looking thing like they need a SUV. Uh oh, wait a minute……

In any event, Porsche claims in their press release that the Panamera “will establish a new segment versus the competition”. I’ll say. It can serve as a warning to other companies who insist on removing themselves as far from their heritage as possible, and do it in the goofiest way possible at the same time. Lacking the ever present grace of a Maserati Quattroporte and the swoopy look of the Mercedes CLS, the Panamera looks purpose-built to eternally answer the question “What do Porsche engineers dream up after Oktoberfest?”
