Panamera Breaks into two

Recommended Posts

Was looking for some information on my 911 and came across this:

 

Thread with more information if anyone is interested

Seems as if the owner won their case via America's lemon laws. Doesn't make me want to run out and buy a Panamera.

Yes, I watched the whole lot while waiting for F1 qualifying to start. Disappointing lack of positive response from Porsche, obviously lawyer-controlled and out-waiting the plaintiff.  She's a very smart, determined person who is being frustrated by Porsche's delaying and obfuscating tactics.  Shameful that it should come to this.

This is absolutely disgraceful.  I was looking up Panameras as the price is dropping thinking it would be a good family car alternative once I no longer have to drag a pram and porta cot about!

After seeing that tho -  I dont think so!

Haven't seen you posting for a long time Amanda.   Welcome back (or have I just not been looking where you've been posting???).  If it has been a while, we've still got our 987S that we discussed 4 1/2 years ago (but looking to upgrade to a  981) and I've now got a 996.2 C2

From the headline I expected to see the car in 2 halves... bit of an over exaggeration. Yes it is bad but in the age of the internet we would of heard of any other weld failures surely! Porsche's response well I am not sure, I think there could be more going on here than stated? Either way it would not stop me buying a Panamera.

The truth will come out eventually, but as people have said lawyers can stymy a lot of things and muddy the waters.....

Hi Peter,

i call in every now and then when working night shift!  

Oh nice one on the 987. Has it mostly been trouble free for you? Love the 981. But I need a back seat now so it's out of the Q for some time into the future. But I won't be happy till I have a 911 at some point I think! That's what has me call in sometimes! I think a 996 would be a good choice for me too.

I thought that too re over exaggerating the split in half bit. . I think every car manufacturer would behave similarly too. 

Length eise not sure a Pan would fit in our garage!

Yes @amanda you are probably right, it is all big business..... manufacturers only let on issues when there is enough "out cry", one case (so far) does not warrant that yet....

You must have a small garage :ph34r:
