Default Porsche Panamera Convertible patent filings

Ok, this is not hot news because we already knew the fact that Porsche was thinking of a convertible version of the Panamera sedan but today this was confirmed by the leaked patents of the new car. The new car will come without the traditional B-pillar but has required substantial stiffening to the floorpan as well as bulkheads in order to ensure sufficient structural rigidity and integrity. Regarding the idea of a four-door convertible we can say that this has an advantage because it offers the same interior space as the saloon but if Porsche will build this car… we shall see about its success!

Wonder if it'll ever see the light of day. Personally I never liked the look of the regular version. I guess only time will tell.

I've always like the idea of a 4 door convertible. I think Lincoln made a 4 door convertible Continental in the late 60's or early 70's. These should not be sports cars. They should be grand blvd cruisers.

Porsche is officially the "new" BMW. And BMW is now Merc. And Merc is now Cadillac.

If the Panamera made it, I will guess the convertible will also. I saw one in Boca this morning and it looks very different when you think of traditional body styling Porsche has refused to let go of. I actually would like to see the sharp edges on some of their other models, but on the 4 door it just looks weird....like an expensive Ute.
