Porsche has introduced the special Platinum Edition of the Panamera for India. This variant will position itself between the standard Panamera and the GTS trim. We first saw the car at the Los Angeles Auto Show that happened last month. When compared to the standard trim, the Platinum Edition does get a host of upgrades. Porsche India has put on a sticker price of INR 1.71 crore (ex-showroom) for this Platinum Edition. The main highlight of this edition is the use of a satin-gloss platinum colour that does enhance the outlook of the SUV greatly.
What Is The Panamera Platinum Edition?
On the exteriors, the SUV gets exclusive platinum inserts in satin finish with ‘Porsche’ lettering. The window trims and tailpipes are also finished in high-gloss black. The special Platinum Edition also gets 21-inch ‘Exclusive Design’ sport wheels that add to the car’s striking personality. In the interiors, the SUV gets black décor in brushed aluminium. Further enhancing the outlook is the ‘Platinum Edition’ door sill guards.
Other key highlights of this edition include adaptive air suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), LED matrix headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus), 14-way electrically adjustable comfort seats, BOSE Surround Sound System and more. Along with this, customers willing to pay more can customize their car from the plethora of options provided by Porsche. Porsche India has confirmed that the Platinum Edition is available across all dealerships across the country.
Engine And Mechanicals
The standard model gets a 2.9-litre V6 bi-turbo unit that makes 330 PS and 450 Nm. Meanwhile, the Turbo S E-Hybrid trim gets a 4.0-litre Biturbo V8 engine that gets the assist of an electric motor. Together, they make 700 PS and 870 Nm. The Panamera sold in India is available in standard, GTS, Turbo S and Turbo S E-Hybrid variants. But the Platinum Edition will come only in the base and top-spec models.
