The Porsche Panamera might not be a new model anymore but the German car maker has to find ways to keep it interesting for the sake of sales. Therefore, the US market is getting a new special model in the range, dubbed Platinum Edition. It will only be available on some models and it will have a starting price of $101,900.
That’s the price for the base Panamera model, with 325 HP. If you’re looking to get it on the Panamera 4 you’re looking at a price tag of at least $106,000 while the Panamera 4 e-Hybrid will be asking for $115,200. All the prices are excluding the $1,350 destination and handling fee.
But what is the Platinum Edition actually? It’s a special version of the Panamera that will only be available for a limited time. On the design front you’ll find exclusive 21-inch wheels with a Satin Platinum finish that can also be found on the air outlet grilles, model designation and Porsche lettering at the rear. After all, the name of the special model has to have a correspondent on the car.
Other features included in the Platinum Edition package are the LED Matrix headlights with the high-beam assistant, the high-gloss black side window trims, black sport tailpipes and special Exclusive design taillights. As for the exterior colors, the Panamera Platinum Edition comes with four exclusive special colors, developed for it.
Standard equipment also includes Adaptive Air Suspension with PASM (Porsche Advanced Stability Management), Blind Spot Monitoring with Lane Change Assist and Power Steering Plus. The latter makes steering lighter at low speeds. Also available is the Porsche Communication Management system (PCM), which boasts Wireless Android Auto and Wireless Apple CarPlay, as well as SiriusXM 360L.
Stepping inside the cabin, you will be welcome by brushed aluminum door sills with the Platinum Edition writing on them, embossed Porsche badges in the headrests, black brushed aluminum cabin trims, soft-close doors, 14-way adjustable seats and four-zone climate control, on top of the Bose Surround Sound system.
That’s a lot of kit included to make up for the $13,500 price difference a Platinum Edition model is asking on top of the base price tag for a ‘normal’ Panamera. The first such models will be delivered in Spring 2022.
