I’ll give you a hint, it has wings and a much bigger trunk… If it wasn’t official before, it certainly is now; The Porsche Panamera is on its way to the US. While not officially on sale until later this year, the first large batch of Panameras is making its way stateside for the official debut at the Rolex Monterey Historics and other venues during this year’s automotive extravaganza on the Monterey Peninsula.
Unlike most cars that travel via transport ships across the oceans blue, Porsche has lifted the Panamera to new heights, literally. With only a few weeks to go before the big debut, 31 Porsche Panameras were loaded onto a Boeing 747 for a quick trip across the pond.
The Panameras will make appearances at historic and high-profile events that include the famous and elegant Quail Lodge, the 36th Rolex Monterey Historic Automobile Races at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca – where Porsche is the featured marque – and finally, at arguably the most famous councours in world, the Pebble Beach Councours d’Elegance (the PorschePurist team will be at all three).
FlatSixes.com will have lots of great pictures, stories and Porsche test drives to talk about during our trip to the Monterey Peninsula Automotive Week so be sure to stay tuned. If you want to follow our progress at the event in real time, be sure to check us out on Twitter.
