Porsche Goes Platinum: Luxury Cayenne Gets New Name

Platinum Edition to Feature Interior Extras, Wider Stance, Special Features

Apr 27, 2016
Porsche will offer a new trim level for the Cayenne Diesel and Cayenne S E-Hybrid, the Platinum Edition.
Dominating the Platinum’s obvious changes are some lovely 20-inch wheels done in Porsche’s RS Spyder design scheme. Housed in wider wheel arches, the wheels give the big Cayenne a hunkered stance. Available in black or white as standard, metallic Deep Black, Purpurite, Mahogany, Carrara White, or Rhodium Silver are available as options. We’ll have ours in Purpurite, just because.

Inside, the Porsche Exclusive interior gets leather sport seats with Alcantara center sections and the Porsche crest embroidered in the headrests. Passengers will enjoy high-end audio courtesy of the standard Bose Surround Sound system, while Porsche Communication Management brings online navigation along. An analog clock gives the interior a bespoke feel.

The Platinum Edition’s mechanicals carry over from its respective donor vehicles, in this case the Cayenne Diesel and Cayenne S E-Hybrid. (Of note, the Cayenne Diesel is no longer sold in the U.S., at least for now.) The Diesel’s 262 hp is nothing to sneeze at, nor is the combined E-Hybrid’s output of 416 hp. Also nothing to sneeze at is the Platinum Edition’s price. At 90,298 Euros, the E-Hybrid is the most expensive of the two, coming in more than 4,000 EUR more than the vehicle on which it’s based.
Still, its high level of standard features no doubt make it attractive to buyers who want to pick the color and little else. With standard dynamic lighting, parking sensors, and advanced power steering, the Cayenne will be a cushy, comfy ride for those who can afford it.
