Michelin chosen as OE for the new Porsche Panamera
Michelin has proudly reported that it has been selected as the OE tyre supplier for the new Porsche Panamera, a 4 door saloon to compete with the likes of the Jaguar XFR and the Aston Martin Rapide. The Panamera will ride on Michelin Pilot Sports or Michelin Pilot Alpin, depending on season.
The selection as OE supplier follows 3 years of collaboration between Porsche and Michelin development teams during which the tyres were put through their paces in a variety of conditions. Michelin commented that the results of these test means that the tyres provide Porsche?s four-door GT car with optimal grip in all situations ? on wet or dry roads and in hot or cold weather and that the selection ?clearly demonstrates the shared commitment to exceptional performance that underpins the partnership between Michelin and Porsche."
