Automobile manufacturer presents interim report
Stuttgart. Porsche Automobil Holding SE, Stuttgart, today published its interim report, which reports particularly on the first three months of the 2009/10 fiscal year (1 August 2009 to 31 October 2009). The report, which covers the business of both Porsche and Volkswagen in the reporting period, is not comparable with the corresponding report of the prior year. The reason is the increase in Porsche SE’s share of voting rights in Volkswagen AG, effected on 5 January 2009, to over 50 percent and the ensuing full consolidation of Volkswagen. As a result, consolidated revenue for the three-month reporting period amounts to 26.8 billion euro, of which 1.1 billion euro is attributable to Porsche. This is a 30.5 percent fall in the revenue recorded by the Stuttgart-based automobile manufacturer compared to the prior-year period.

Five Innovations in Technology making their World Debut in the Porsche Panamera
Stuttgart. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is proudly presenting the key technologies of the new Panamera prior to the world debut of this truly outstanding Gran Turismo in Shanghai, among them no less than five innovations in technology to be admired for the first time in a production car in the luxury performance range and therefore marking world debuts themselves. These include the first automatic start/stop in conjunction with automatic transmission, air suspension with additional air volume on demand, as well as active aerodynamics with a multi-stage, adjustable rear spoiler moving up when required on the Panamera Turbo.
Offering the premium customer an unprecedented vehicle concept, the Panamera is a four-seater Gran Turismo featuring the most supreme standard of dynamic performance and superior elegance all in one.
As Porsche’s fourth model series, the Panamera is to achieve the same outstanding position that the 911, the Cayenne, the Boxster, and the Cayman already hold in their respective segments. While competing with well-established models in the premium class, the Panamera is most definitely the segment leader in terms of performance, driving dynamics and efficiency. Indeed, these have always been Porsche’s core competences, since efficient, high-performance engines, light-weight engineering and optimised aerodynamics have always been crucial in motorsport.
Now the Panamera for the first time combines this DNA of Porsche and the emotional character of a sports car with the superior space and comfort of an outstanding luxury performance saloon, creating a unique Gran Turismo in the process.
