Currently reading: Porsche Panamera gains Platinum Edition with bespoke design
LA debut for special edition Panamera with improved equipment levels and unique styling cues

The Porsche Panamera Turbo has gained a new variant with bespoke platinum-themed design features and more standard equipment.  

The Panamera 4 Platinum Edition, on show in LA, includes several design changes in platinum, such as the Porsche logo, its 21in alloy wheels, the air outlet trims behind the front wheels and the 'e-Hybrid' badge on electrified models. 

Other design changes include black sports tailpipes, gloss-black side window trims, privacy glass and tail-lights of an exclusive design.

The model also gains a host of extras as standard to improve regular driving, including active suspension management (PASM), auto-dimming exterior mirrors, LED matrix headlights, parking assistance, a reversing camera and lane-change assistance. 

Inside the car, the cabin is finished with a brushed aluminium interior package. A GT sports steering wheel is included along with 14-way electrically adjustable comfort seats, rear heated seats and a Bose surround sound system. The Porsche logo has also been embossed onto the headrests. 

Other changes include soft-close doors, brushed aluminum door sill guards and an analogue clock on the dashboard. Hybrid models also come equipped with a 7.2kW on-board charger.

Prices for Platinum Edition models start at £83,510, rising to £94,850 for the range-topping E-Hybrid Sport Turismo. Pricing-wise, the special edition sits above 4 but just below the 4S. 

The Platinum Edition will be premiered at the Los Angeles motor show on 17 November before customer deliveries begin in the first quarter of 2022.

Platinum edition?, German for?, charging more?, if I'm buying a Car like this, and I did say if, why would I add more?, there can't be much I'd deem essential,a must have that I'd rush to my Porsche web page and register an interest in one.

The lack of comments highlights this models place in the scheme of things. That said the special editions are designed to keep existing owners engaged for another two years at which point the Panamera will cease to exist. Why not now you ask, because Porsche cannot keep up with Taycan demand, so the Panamera soldiers on for another two years. The good news is you can get a really fat discount on a Panamera, not often you get to say that about a new Porsche!

Looks like desperate attempt to revive its flagging fortunes against the Taycan. They should probably wave a white flag instead.
