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?

  • Lou_BC "15mpg EPA" The 2023 ZR2 Colorado is supposed to be 16 mpg
  • ToolGuy "The more aerodynamic, organic shape of the Mark VIII meant ride height was slightly lower than before at 53.6 inches, over 54.2” for the Mark VII."• I am not sure that ride height means what you think it means.Elaboration: There is some possible disagreement about what "ride height" refers to. Some say ground clearance, some say H point (without calling it that), some say something else. But none of those people would use a number of over 4 feet for a stock Mark anything.Then you go on to use it correctly ("A notable advancement in the Mark VIII’s suspension was programming to lower the ride height slightly at high speeds, which assisted fuel economy via improved aerodynamics.") so what do I know. Plus, I ended a sentence with a preposition. 🙂
  • ToolGuy The dealer knows best. 🙂
  • ToolGuy Cool.
  • ToolGuy This truck is the perfect size, and the fuel economy is very impressive.-This post sponsored by ExxonMobil
