Platinum has had a fairly beautiful career: it was used as a substitute for silver in ancient Egypt and then in Latin America, but is now considered the most valuable precious metal. In the spirit of this, Porsche has created the unsurpassed design of the Panamera: it would be difficult to position anything above the Platinum Edition.
Available in Europe for the all-wheel-drive four-door Panamera and the combo Panamera Sport Turismo, many of the exterior features are individually painted, from the front grille behind the front wheels to the rear logo and inscription to the e-Hybrid logo if you choose the plug-in hybrid version. Optional 20-inch wheels with platinum paint.
The limited edition is not only decorative but also richly equipped. Adaptive air suspension, electrochromic exterior mirrors, LED matrix headlights, panoramic sunroof, reversing camera, automatic parking and (for hybrid models) a 7.2 kW on-board charger are standard. 21-inch platinum wheels, black exhaust ends, tinted glass, glossy black window frames and custom-designed taillights complete the package.
In the cabin, a GT sports steering wheel, power door retractors, heated rear and memory front seats, black aluminum trim and headrests emblazoned with the Porsche logo create a special atmosphere. The two most distinctive styling elements are the black aluminum threshold and the analog timer applied to the dashboard.
The model is now available to order, with the first cars to be delivered to customers at the end of next January.
