Rumors: Porsche Panamera convertible ??? image

Recent rumors about latest Porsche – the Panamera which is in some way an limousine – are talking about an possible convertible version.

The news from German sources is that the convertible version of the Panamera will drop two doors and add a bit of strength into the car’s body (which makes it sound like an afterthought). There’s no mention of the top itself, whether it will be a soft top or a retractable hard top, but the convert option is expected to add about $16,000 to the Panamera’s price. There’s no word on when the Panamera convertible might hit the streets, but the German press is saying 2012 at the very earliest.

“We have a broad range of 14 derivatives of the 911 that are very successful. So it stands to reason we should diversify the lineup for the Panamera as well,” said Porsche development chief Wolfgang Duerheimer.
