Porsche Cayenne Platinum Edition Unveiled, May Launch In India
The Porsche Cayenne now has a new variant with bespoke platinum-themed design features and improved standard equipment, and it is available in both SUV and Coupé body styles. The Cayenne Platinum Edition is already available in markets such as the United Kingdom, and while it is listed on Porsche India’s website, the price in India has yet to be announced.
The Porsche Cayenne Platinum Edition features satin-finish platinum design elements such as the rear Porsche lettering, front air intakes, 21-inch alloy wheels, and model designation. Other black accents include the sports exhaust tailpipes and side window trims. Special metallic finishes for the exterior paint include Jet Black, Carrara White, Mahogany, Moonlight Blue, and Crayon.
The interior is finished in textured aluminium with silver trim. Crayon-coloured seatbelts brushed aluminium door sills, and a special Platinum Edition logo is also included. The Porsche logo is also embossed on the front and rear headrests and the model includes LED headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System, a panoramic roof, and privacy glass.
The Platinum Edition also comes with a slew of extras, such as eight-way electrically adjustable leather sports seats, a premium Bose surround-sound system, ambient lighting, and a special analogue clock on the dashboard.
Globally, the Platinum Edition can be ordered with the same engines as the standard Cayenne. The E-Hybrid combines a 3.0-litre turbocharged petrol V6 with an electric motor and a 17.9kWh battery for a total of 455hp. There is also a 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine with 439hp. It remains to be seen which of these engines will be available on the Cayenne Platinum Edition in India.
In India, Porsche has recently added new models to both the 718 and 911 lineups. Porsche recently introduced the 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 and 718 Boxster GTS 4.0 in India, both of which are road-focused sportscars rather than track-focused GT4/Spyder models. Following that, the German automaker debuted the 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 Touring twins. Porsche also introduced its all-electric supercar, the Taycan, in India late last year, alongside the facelifted Macan.
