How will the new Panamera perform within the Chinese market? Dr. Stefan Utsch, Director Sales & Marketing, Product Line Panamera, is confident. “Over the past year, this luxury sedan with pure sports gene has been popular among Porsche fans across the world. China, as Porsche's largest single market, will be a significant foothold for the Panamera.” Utsch said, “Currently we’ve brought 13 unique variants to the Chinese customers to meet their needs for diversified uses in different scenarios. The rising order volume has surpassed our expectations, and we are very confident in the Panamera's market performance in China.”
With its innovative design, future-oriented infotainment system, re-adjusted chassis and a series of advanced assistance systems, the new Panamera has set a new benchmark in the premium comfort of luxury sedans. Journalists recently had the opportunity to experience the car in a scenic drive between Mogan Mountain and the Taihu Lake.
