Business – Porsche set to drive in Rs 2-cr sedan next week

NEW DELHI: Porsche’s four-door luxury coupe sedan, Panamera, will debut in India next week
the German carmaker’s most expensive sedan is expected to be priced around over Rs 2 crore due to the high import duty.

The front-engine and rear wheel drive (it also has a four-wheel option) is capable of reaching top speed of 303 km per hour and accelerate up to 100 km in just 4.2 seconds.

The importer of Porsche cars to India, Precision Cars India, has already received 13 bookings for Panamera and aims to sell 50 cars this fiscal. “There is great expectation from Panamera in India and it will hit the market on October 6. The demand for sporty cars is already on the rise and customers are looking at the latest models,” MD of Precision Cars India, Rod Wallace said.

Panamera is likely to have multi-engine choices including S, 4S and the turbo power variants. Besides the regular, front passenger and curtain airbags, it will be the first car in the segment to have knee airbags for added safety. Porsche is known for its legendary two-seater sports cars like Carerra 911, Cayman, Boxter and the sports utility vehicle Cayenne, which are already sold in India
