Today will go down in history as the day that upcoming luxury convertibles made their debut through patent drawings. Earlier today, we saw the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster and now AutoWeek has obtained U.S. patent drawings of the upcoming Porsche Panamera convertible.
Besides previous reports of Zuffenhausen insiders saying that the convertible has been canceled, it seems Porsche is committed to building the drop-top Panamera.
It is reported that the four-door Porsche Panamera convertible will have no B-Pillar meaning it will require substantial stiffening to the vehicle’s floorpan and bulkheads to ensure sufficient structural rigidity and integrity.
No word on when the Panamera convertible will make its debut.
