I'm thinking of getting a 2013 65-inch Panasonic Plasma. Even if Panasonic stops making plasmas, how would that affect a new purchase? Will parts become more difficult to get later on? Is there any reason to not get a Panasonic plasma in case they stop making them?

Thanks.

Any reason not too? No.

Any reason to indeed get one? A million.

They aren't going to stop making Plasmas immediately. They have only announced that they are stopping Plasma R&D, and are shifting focus over to OLED.
There will be at least another couple of years where they are selling Plasmas, and will probably transition over to OLED.
This is not like Pioneer where they simply exited the TV business altogether.
