Porsche is no stranger to releasing special edition models and if there’s a possibility that public interest will dictate strong demand, the automaker has no problem giving the people what they want.
Recently, Porsche unveiled its latest special edition work for the Cayenne SUV . It’s called the Cayenne Platinum Edition and it was designed to combine style and exclusivity, two hallmarks of German engineering.
As is always the case with a special-edition model, the Cayenne Platinum Edition will come dressed with a variety of color options, including a choice of models like a Platinum Silver Metallic finish to go with a Black, White, Meteor Grey Metallic, Basalt Black Metallic, Mahogany Metallic and Carrara White Metallic colors, all of which are available upon request.
Bi-xenon headlights, a fancy privacy glass, and a set of 19-inch Cayenne Design II wheels are also part of the exterior program.
Meanwhile, the interior also received a fancy set of upgrades, highlighted by a two-tone interior trim that has partial leather seats, a SportDesign steering wheel and a Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system with GPS navigation. Anti-dazzle interior mirrors, special floor mats and "Platinum Edition" sill plates, are also part of the interior digs, giving this Cayenne Platinum Edition the workings of an certifiably exclusive SUV.
The Cayenne Platinum Edition is powered by a 3.6-liter, V-6 engine that develops 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, in addition to a 3.0-liter, V-6 diesel that hits 254 horsepower and 368 pound-feet of torque. The model retails for €66,379 for the Cayenne Platinum Edition and €67,212 for the Cayenne Diesel Platinum Edition, which is about $90,300 and $91,500 based on current exchange rates.
