ATLANTA, April 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Later in 2016, Porsche will offer two new Cayenne Platinum Edition models. Porsche uses the Platinum Edition designation for selected configurations that are offered for only a limited time. The Cayenne and Cayenne S E-Hybrid Platinum Edition variants will be recognizable by their distinctive sporty appearance. Both models offer a high level of content at an attractive price. For example, large 20-inch RS Spyder design wheels are housed in wider wheel arches and the special interior is dominated by 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.
Expanded features improve comfort and convenience. For example, standard equipment for the Cayenne Platinum Edition includes Bi-Xenon™ headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), Power Steering Plus, and front and rear ParkAssist. The latter not only uses an audible beep to indicate the distance to objects or other cars in front of and behind the vehicle; it also graphically depicts the direct surroundings on the central display. The exterior mirrors and rear-view mirror are equipped with an automatic anti-glare feature as standard, while dark-tinted privacy glass (also standard) provides additional privacy for rear passengers.
Solid black and white paint finishes are standard, with Jet Black, Purpurite, Mahogany, Carrara White, or Rhodium Silver metallic paints optionally available. The wheel arch extensions are also available in body color. The models' exclusive appearance is rounded out by a high gloss black exterior trim package.
Platinum Edition models will come 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.
The Cayenne S E-Hybrid's 3.0 liter V6 supercharged engine and electric motor results in 47 mpge, based upon EPA testing, while producing a maximum 416 hp. The Cayenne S E-Hybrid Platinum Edition model will start at an MSRP of $81,600. With a 3.6 liter V6 producing 300 hp, the 2017 Cayenne Platinum Edition model will start at an MSRP of $65,600. Both prices do not include a delivery, processing, and handling fee of $1,050.
