We stumbled across a video today showing a procession of Porsche Panamera and Cayenne police cars in the sovereign Arab state of Qatar celebrating the 2011 Qatar National Day. We’re not sure whether these are all real police cars but it seems perfectly plausible. Qatar is a known investor in both Porsche and it’s parent company the Volkswagen group.
Every December 18th, Qatar celebrates their National Day in commemoration of the historic day in 1878 when Shaikh Jasim, the founder of the State of Qatar, succeeded his father, Shaikh Muhammad Bin Thani, as the ruler and led the country toward unity. December 18th is the day they remember how their national unity was achieved, and this impressive parade was part of it.
