The Platinum Edition Cayennes have 21-inch Sport Edition wheels in a platinum shade with a satin finish. Window surrounds have a high gloss black finish, all adding to an assertive look.

Included are eight-way leather-trimmed sports front seats, with Alcantara centres as fitted to the Cayenne GTS; a Porsche crest on all head rests; and a panoramic sunroof. “Platinum Edition” lettering adorns the front door sills. There’s a sporty analogue clock on the dashboard.

There’s surround-view park assist; and lane change. Connect Plus is added to the Porsche Communication Management systems

Available colours are solid black or white, or the metallic colours of Jet Black, Mahogany, Purpurite, Carrara White and Rhodium Silver.


Power outputs remain unchanged over the S models with the 309 kW 3.6-litre six-cylinder bi-turbo engine in the Cayenne S. The V8 engine with twin turbocharging in the Cayenne S Diesel generating 283 kW and has official fuel consumption of 8.2 L/100 km.

Together with versions of the Cayenne, Cayenne Diesel and the Cayenne S E-Hybrid, the Platinum Edition now comprises five Cayenne models.

The additional standard features are valued in excess of $12,000. Cayenne S Platinum Edition is priced at $137,100 which represents a price reduction of 4.3 per cent over the standard S despite the significant level of additional equipment.
