NYC Hotel Picks up Guests in a Porsche Panamera

September 29, 2010
While airlines work overtime to figure out new ways to add annoying fees that make tickets more expensive, hotels are working just as hard to give us freebies and perks.

One example is The Hotel Gansevoort Group, which operates two trendy hotels in New York City, and now transports guests to and from the airport in a 2011 Porsche Panamera 4S.  Sweet!

"We're looking forward to transforming the perception of city driving," says Detlev Von Platen, president and CEO of Porsche Cars North America. "Appreciating one of the world's greatest cities from the spacious interior of a Porsche Panamera is a great way to increase your pulse rate without adding an iota of stress."

The Panamera is the first four-door performance sport sedan from Porsche, with enough luggage room to hold four sets of golf clubs.  But it’s not the first four-door Porsche.  That would be the Cayenne, which is also Porsche’s first SUV.

The Panamera has the heart and soul of a 911, with legendary Porsche handling to steer around potholes, bicycle messengers who ride the wrong way on one way and pedestrians who walk into traffic while texting.  Multiple driving modes can switch from sport-tuned suspension for highway driving, to a more relaxed suspension more suitable for city driving.  The all-wheel drive can handle any kind of weather.

The Gansevoort hotels are most famous for their rooftop swimming pools and poolside bars, and their guest list of A-list celebrities.
