Porsche is a bit late on delivering the first batch of Panamera sedans. Apparently some 200 units have been held up at the ports while problems with the car’s key and software are being fixed.
To apologize for the delay, Porsche sent out a letter to the first 200 owners and told them that the company will throw in a free Porsche luggage set priced at $3,850.
A Porsche spokesman said that the free luggage set is away to thank customers for their patience.
As of Monday, 72 cars have been fixed and arrived at dealerships this past weekend. The remaining 123 units are expected to arrive in dealerships by Nov. 30.
Refresher: The $89,800 Porsche Panamera S is powered by a 400-hp V8 allowing for a 0-60 mph time of 5.2 seconds with a top speed of 175 mph. The $93,800 Panamera 4S is powered by the same 400-hp V8. The $132,600 Porsche Panamera Turbo is powered by a turbocharged V8 making 500-hp allowing for a 0-60 mph time of 4.0 seconds with a top speed of 188 mph.
