Porsche joins car hire fleet
As part of Avis’s Prestige Rental Car Services, the car hire company are now offering the luxury Porsche Panamera for hire. The exquisite vehicle is only available in Germany at the moment, however if demand is high enough, we could see the Porsche being rolled out across the whole Avis network.
The beauty of the Porsche Panamera is that it’s big enough to accommodate 4 passengers, unlike the majority of sports cars. Instead it features 4 doors, luxury leather seating for 4 people, and a boot at the rear of the vehicle to carry luggage. As for the technical mechanics, according to the Porsche specification the new model has standard direct injection, PDK, start stop technology and optional aerodynamics.
It’s a recent addition to the Porsche family having only been revealed at the Shanghai Automobile Show last April. Avis is the first car hire company to pick up the Porsche Panamera. It joins an already impressive line-up of sports cars including the new Jaguar XKR 5.0 Cabriolet, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster and the Ferrari F430 F1 Spider which are already available to hire through Avis.
The starting hire price for the Porsche is €189 for a day or €567 for a weekend. According to the car hire firm, the Porsche Panamera isn’t too expensive to run as it features brand new technology which aids fuel efficiency.
