We've seen a number of matte-black camera cars before, but never a Panamera. This one even has a little tail gunner hatch in the back and we can't get over how cool it is.
The car was spotted by a Rennlist reader in LA last week. We want one.
We're not sure what company uses this Panamera for filming, but it looks like it was wrapped by Premier Wraps in Hollywood. Their site describes the build.
Here's the latest matte black wrap that's come out of our shop. A Porsche Panamera. What makes this Porsche unique is that it's used for movie shoots. They call it a camera car. There's a rack that bolts to the roof that hold a 16′ boom with a camera on the end. The inside of the car has been modified so a camera operator can operate the controls where the back window use to be. You're probably thinking a $160,000 Porsche, really? Ya, we thought the same thing. Because of the high horsepower engine, the racing suspension and the big brakes, the Panamera makes a perfect chase car. It can hold the extra weight of the boom, camera and equipment. Has the brakes to stop all that extra weight, the power to get that much weight up to speed to capture the perfect shot. Wrapping it matte black makes it less likely to give off reflections that would other wise show up in the shot. Only in Hollywood.
While this car might be exclusive to Hollywood, we still want one. The weird hatch makes the car not only more practical, but more attractive, too.
