The car will be imported as a completely built unit which means it will attract high import duty and therefore it is expected to be priced at around Rs. 2 crores. Porsche has already received 13 bookings for Panamera and expects to make sale of at least 50 cars this fiscal. "There is great expectation from Panamera in India and it will hit the market on October 6.
