Porsche Australia has added a new Platinum Edition grade to its already extensive Cayenne large SUV range, with deliveries expected to start in mid-2022.
The Platinum Edition is available in the Cayenne, Cayenne S and Cayenne E-Hybrid variants, across both the wagon and Coupe body-styles, starting from $145,000 plus on-road costs and reaching $172,800 (see full pricing table below).
While the Cayenne Coupe S is actually $4000 cheaper in Platinum Edition form, the five other versions become $5000 to $16,900 more expensive when upgraded.
So, what do Platinum Edition buyers get to stand out from the Cayenne crowd? Well, a satin Platinum finish is applied to the slats of the front air intakes, 21-inch RS Spyder Design alloy wheels, rear ‘Porsche’ lettering and tailgate badging.
And then there’s the Platinum Edition’s black window surrounds and sports exhaust tailpipes, with two solid (White and Black), four metallic (Jet Black, Carrara White, Mahogany and Moonlight Blue) and one special (Crayon) paintwork options available.
Inside, the Platinum Edition steps up with textured aluminium trim with silver accents, Crayon seatbelts and brushed aluminium scuff plates with the ‘Platinum Edition’ logo.
Additional standard equipment is also bundled in with the Platinum Edition, including a panoramic sunroof (already found in the Coupe body-style), a Bose surround-sound system, 18-way power-adjustable front adaptive sports seats with embossed Porsche crests and memory functionality, ambient lighting and an analogue dashboard clock.
For reference, the Cayenne variant is motivated by a 250kW/450Nm 3.0-litre turbo-petrol V6 engine, while the Cayenne E-Hybrid takes that unit and adds a 100kW/400Nm electric motor to create its 340kW/700Nm plug-in hybrid powertrain.
