Quoth the release:

The official Porsche Facebook fan page reached a social media landmark, when it welcomed its one-millionth fan recently. Especially for its one million devotees Porsche invited them to sign-up via Facebook to have their name inscribed on a special Porsche model. More than 27.000 Fans decided to have their signature on a real Porsche. This vehicle, the 911 GT3 R Hybrid, will be displayed as part of a unique exhibit at the Porsche Museum in February 2011. Enjoy a special Porsche model with a personal touch.

For a look at the car, and for a special photo-illustration of what a Panamera signed by all its “fans” might look like, click the jump.

Here’s the GT3R Hybrid itself:

So that’s what a GT3R looks like when it’s signed by all of its fans. But if we could somehow envision what a Panamera might look like when it was signed by all of the people with the taste and breeding to appreciate its styling and engineering, what would that look like? I commissioned noted Microsoft Paint artist Jack Baruth to create the concept, which is below:

    Man you're such a snob JB. The Panamera owns.

    I actually prefer the commissioned artistic rendition to the imbecility of covering a car with a paper mache made of a printout of names of teenage internet fanboys (and fangirls, apparently). Why is Porsche sharing the vapid egotistical concern of Kim Kardashian?

  • Freddie Instead of taking the day off, how about an article on the connection between Black Americans and the auto industry and car culture? Having done zero research, two topics pop into my head: Chrysler designer/executive Ralph Gilles, and the famous (infamous?) "Green Book".

  • Billccm I think we will see history repeat itself. The French acquired AMC in the 1980s, discovered they couldn't make easy money, sold AMC off to Chrysler. Jeep is all that remained. This time the French acquired FCA, and they are discovering no easy profits. Assume an Asian manufacturer will acquire what remains of Chrysler, but this time Jeep and RAM are the only survivors.
