Platinum Edition Cayenne announced by Porsche

German sports car manufacturer Porsche announced special Platinum Edition Cayenne for the six-cylinder and diesel SUVs. The Cayenne Platinum Edition models feature detailed paint finishes in Platinum Silver Metallic, the eight-gear Tiptronic S, Bi-Xenon main headlights and Power Steering Plus, as well as the ParkAssist system at the front and rear as standard. The automatic anti-dazzle interior mirrors eliminate the dazzle from traffic behind the vehicle and the privacy glazing (also available as standard) protects the rear passengers from unwanted attention.

The Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system, including a navigation module, is also a standard feature: The PCM includes a high-resolution seven-inch touchscreen and a sound system with 11 loudspeakers and total power of 235 watt.

The Cayenne Platinum Edition offers an output of 300 hp (220 kW). In combination with the Tiptronic S, the vehicle’s NEDC fuel consumption is 9.9 litres/100 km (236 g/km CO2). The three litre V6 engine in the Cayenne Diesel Platinum Edition offers an output of 245 hp (180 kW) and a fuel consumption level of 7.2 litres of diesel over 100 kilometres (189 g/km CO2). The Cayenne Platinum Edition costs €66,379 and it is €67,212 for the Cayenne Diesel Platinum Edition (including VAT). The Platinum Edition models are due to be available on the market in January 2014.
