Porsche’s press event for the Panamera was... odd

Porsche’s press event for the Panamera was... odd

Porsche unveiled the new Panamera today. That's cool, but like many product unveilings across many industries, the introduction was preceded by an on-stage hypefest that was only loosely connected with reality. (See: Samsung's Zoll, Qualcomm at CES 2013, the list goes on.) So let's just go through a quick list of things that happened during the Porsche event:

1. A guy threw a courage rag
2. Cosmopolitan bros stared directly through my soul
3. I was momentarily rendered unconscious by a disorienting ribbon dance
4. This dude
5. Two bros who I don't believe have ever used apps before came out and swiped in thin air like they're in Minority Report and then high-fived each other
6. Backflip guy

The Porsche 911 Targa 4S is a speed demon’s dream
