Porsche is all set to introduce two new Cayenne Platinum Edition models in 2016. The Platinum Edition models would come with selected configurations, while being available for a limited time. The Cayenne Platinum Edition & Cayenne S E-Hybrid Platinum Edition would come at a sticker price of $65,600 (Around Rs. 44 Lakhs) and $81,600 (Around Rs. 54 Lakhs), respectively. Both the models would feature a high gloss black exterior trim package.
Porsche Cayenne Platinum Edition would get Bi-Xenon headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), Power Steering Plus, and front and rear ParkAssist as standard. In addition, the exterior mirrors and rear-view mirror would be equipped with an automatic anti-glare feature as standard, while dark-tinted privacy glass (also standard) would provide additional privacy for rear passengers. The wider wheel arches would be flanked by the large 20-inch RS Spyder design wheels. The cabin would have leather eight-way electrically adjustable sport seats with Alcantara center panels, Porsche crest on the head rests, and stainless steel door sills with illuminated "Platinum Edition" lettering.
Solid black and white paint finishes would be on offer as standard, with Jet Black, Purpurite, Mahogany, Carrara White, or Rhodium Silver metallic paints optionally available. The wheel arch extensions would also be available in body color. Both the Platinum Editions would come loaded with the latest generation Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system that includes navigation, the Connect Plus module, and a BOSE Surround Sound system. The plug-in Cayenne S E-Hybrid Platinum Edition model also comes with auxiliary cabin conditioning which allows the vehicle to be programmed to use the heater or air-conditioning to pre-condition the cabin before the driver enters the vehicle.
Under the hood, Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid would have a 3.0L V6 supercharged engine and an electric motor. It develops a maximum power of 416bhp, while returning an exceptional mileage of 19.98kmpl. On the other hand, the Cayenne Platinum Edition would be powered by the 3.6L V6 motor, which belts out 300bhp of top power.
