Porsche to Bring Out the Four-Door Panamera Cabrio Soon
Breaking, First Look, News
Car maker Porsche candidly admits that the surest way to increase its sales figures is by introducing new models over the next couple of years. As a part of this intention, the company is planning to build on a four-door Panamera Cabrio. The Porsche Panamera is a four-door, four-seat luxury sedan, which was launched in 2009. Currently, trim levels include the base model Panamera S, Panamera 4S and Panamera Turbo. It has been a while that rumours of additional Panamera and Cabriolet models have been doing the rounds since even before the Panamera Cabriolet was launched. Readers will recollect that the Cabriolet, introduced 1995, features a fully electrical and hand-stitched soft top.
The four-door layout of the external body has been retained and the car is expected to be a 5-meter drop top. No changes are anticipated in the interiors and the new model is expected to keep the same interior space as that of the standard model. Automobile engineers would have to do a lot of structural permutations before coming up with a physically rigid and well balanced structure. As far as the controls and handling of the car goes, if it manages to retain the positives of the tin- top, it will have done a good job.
The success or failure of this new variant, which boasts an excellent pedigree will ultimately determine how the car making world will remember it - as pioneers who had the courage to innovate or as foolhardy upstarts who misread the market a bit too much. Till then, as for us, all we can is wait.
