Porsche Saudi Arabia announces GCF 2015 strategic partner sponsorship

A convoy of illustrious Porsche Panamera Executives will take on the role of official VIP shuttle car for the 2015 Global Competitiveness Forum (GCF), as Porsche Saudi Arabia, part of Volkswagen Group Saudi Arabia, prepares to re-launch the longer wheel-based Panamera.

Taking place 25th to the 27th January, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Riyadh, the GCF is an annual program of activities attended by the world’s business leaders, international political leaders, and select intellectuals who share a common interest in competitiveness.

Underlining its position at the top of the luxury executive class and in what will be the brand’s first participation in the GCF; Porsche Saudi Arabia will provide 35 Panamera Executives to exclusively transport all VIP guests.

The strategic partner sponsorship between Porsche Saudi Arabia and GCF is set to ensure the spectacular sight of 35 Panamera Executive sports vehicles zooming through the streets of Riyadh and cementing the GCF’s position as one of the leading global gatherings but with a local flavor.

Commenting on the partnership announcement, Mr. Michael Mueller, Executive Director of Porsche Saudi Arabia, said: “Progressive, forward thinking and with a heritage of delivery at a global level – these are key components and shared traits between Porsche and the Global Competitiveness Forum. The Porsche brand is one with an unrivalled legacy of performance excellence and a history of taking pioneering steps in the automotive industry. The partnership with GCF was a natural choice and we are delighted to be providing VIP guests attending the conference, the highest levels of comfort and performance.”

Panamera Executive models feature a 15 centimeter longer wheelbase, resulting in more leg space behind the front seats, combined with soft-close doors, windows designed to insulate against noise and heat, therefore ensuring ultimate comfort for the VIP guests being chauffeured.

A comprehensive range of additional personalisation options are also on offer for this model, including a folding table for the rear compartment and Sport Chrono Package. Never before has luxury and comfort been so closely associated with such sporty driving performance.

The Panamera Executive is available for order, with some models available for immediate delivery to interested customers.
