First Panamera’s Fill Boeing 747 for Long Trip to America’s West Coast To Debut at Monterey Peninsula Automotive Week

ATLANTA-The first 31 Porsche Panamera models are in the air and on their way to the car’s North American debut where the public will see the all-new four-passengerGran Turismo for the first time at a series of major events during the Monterey Peninsula Automotive Week (the week of August 9-16). Activities include automotive celebrations at the Quail Lodge, the Monterey Historics and the famed Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

The cars were airlifted directly from Leipzig, Germany, where they are produced alongside the Cayenne sports utility vehicle using the most state-of-the-art production methods.  The car represents Porsche’s fourth model line and has been highly anticipated ever since the company announced four years ago that it would build the brand’s first-ever four-passenger sports car.

The Panamera Gran Turismo will go on sale at Porsche’s 202 U.S. dealers on October 17, 2009.

The cars 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 Laguna Seca Raceway, where Porsche is the featured marquee, and finally at arguably the most famous councours in the world – the Pebble Beach Councours d’Elegance.
