Bow before the Porsche Cayenne Platinum Edition

By topgear, 19 January 2022

Porsche’s posh SUV gets even posher as the standard Cayenne, E-Hybrid and S models all get Platinum Edition treatment

For those of you put off by the Porsche Cayenne for not being exclusive enough, good news! There is now a Platinum Edition with which to separate yourself from the riff raff.

The German company shifted 83,071 Cayennes in 2021, making the SUV the second most popular Porsche behind the Macan. You can read more (seriously interesting) sales figures in TG’s full manufacturer breakdown for 2021.

So yes, the Platinum Edition: available on the Cayenne, plus E-Hybrid and S editions (as well as their coupe equivalents), the package is available to order now and first deliveries will commence in Germany in May.

Features like the air intake slats, model designation badge, Porsche lettering on the rear LED lights and 21-inch RS Spyder Design wheels (an exclusive Platinum Edition touch) are all finished in a satin platinum paint.

The sport tailpipes and side window trims are finished in black, and there are metallic paint options including Jet Black, Carrara White, Mahogany, Moonlight Blue and - our particular favourite - ‘Crayon’. We’re guessing the latter isn’t to be taken literally.

Inside gets much the same approach, with brushed aluminium door sills sporting a ‘Platinum Edition’ logo, with textured aluminium and silver trim pieces dotted throughout the cabin.

There’s extra kit above and beyond what you get as standard, too: think LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof, privacy glass, ambient lighting, eight-way adjustable leather sports seats and an analogue clock on the dash.
