Porsche Panamera Turbo is Value Champion 2012
Stuttgart. The Porsche Panamera Turbo is the car that holds its value best in its class. The vehicle’s residual value after four years was still 56 per cent of the original price, as jointly calculated by Auto Bild and Schwacke. That makes the Gran Turismo the winner of the “Value Champion 2012” title for the lowest percentage depreciation in the luxury class.
“Porsche-badged cars inherently hold their value – especially in the long run”, said Dr. Gernot Döllner, Manager of the Panamera model line, at the prize giving in Berlin on Thursday evening. “For example, approximately 70 per cent of all the Porsches ever made are still on the road, yet further evidence of our models’ ability to hold their value. This accolade further bolsters our vehicles’ value retention.”
The prospective residual value is behind many of the calculations for financing and leasing offers and the purchase decision when it comes to company cars and rental car fleets. It also provides a snapshot of the second hand car market in general. The data on which the selection of the Value Champion 2012 was based were calculated by Schwacke’s experts.
With its 4.8-litre V8-biturbo engine, the Porsche Panamera Turbo develops a rated output of 500 hp, sprints from a standing start to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and has a top speed of 303 km/h.
