What’s different on the 2022 Porsche Panamera Platinum Edition?

Written by Akhil Dalvi

Porsche has launched a new Platinum Edition for its 2022 Panamera, Panamera 4, and Panamera 4 E-Hybrid grand tourers. Porsche has taken this decision to bump up sales for the Panamera as its Taycan outsold all models in October. Another factor for the launch of the Platinum Edition is the global slump in sales for 4-door sedans. Porsche has added exclusive new exterior and interior features by introducing the latest edition for three variants of the Panamera.

The brand will introduce the Platinum Edition Panamera range for the US markets, with Europe and China following closely behind. Porsche will price the base Platinum Panamera at USD 101,900 and the Platinum Panamera 4 at USD 106,000. The top-spec Platinum 4 E-Hybrid Panamera will sport a price tag of USD 115,200, with deliveries scheduled for Spring 2022.

Along with its signature front LED matrix headlamps, the Platinum Edition also gets exclusive rear LED taillights and black exhausts.

Porsche also adds in its Dynamic Lighting System with an updated design and a high-beam assistant for increased visibility.
