Speaking with the British outlet at the LA Auto Show, Porsche chief of research and development Wolfgang Hatz commented, “I wish we’d offered more cars for sale; the response has been incredible.” Hatz noted that the Exclusive Series tested the waters of both consumer interest and the abilities of Porsche’s suppliers. “I’m sure we will do more in the future.”
A stretched 911 or Cayman looks a bit doubtful, not to mention just plain wrong, but the prospect of a limited-run, no-holds-barred sports car variant is a tempting one.
The 100 Panamera Exclusive models built upon the Panamera Turbo S Executive trim and similarly boasted 570 horsepower and all-wheel drive. Porsche then stretched its wheelbase by nearly six inches, added a custom two-tone black-and-chestnut paint job, matching leather upholstery, and 10-inch touchscreens for the rear seats.
A signature Porsche luggage set even came with the car, but that’s somewhat to be expected. Once all the bits and pieces are tallied up, the Panamera Exclusive retailed for about $110,000 more than the $200,500 Panamera Executive model it’s based on.
Excuse me…how did you say that oil change was?
