Porsche adds Cayenne S and Cayenne S Diesel to its Platinum Edition lineup

Article by Christian A., on February 6, 2017

The next generation of the Porsche Cayenne is bound to arrive in the 2018 model year, sending hordes of fans and enthusiasts into bouts of thrill and excitement. But while the current generation of the Porsche Cayenne is now on the verge of ending its life cycle, the frenzy for it hasn’t ended yet. This is because Porsche is introducing to the public two new special editions – the 2017 Porsche Cayenne S Platinum Edition and the 2017 Porsche Cayenne S Diesel Platinum Edition.

The new Porsche Cayenne S Platinum Edition and the new Porsche Cayenne S Diesel Platinum Edition will be the latest addition to the sports car maker’s Platinum Edition portfolio. In April 2016, Porsche launched the Platinum Edition, with the Cayenne Diesel and the Cayenne S E-Hybrid as its first two models. These Platinum Edition models were well-received, and such reception prompted Porsche to add the Cayenne S and Cayenne S Diesel to the lineup.

Considered as the hotter and more powerful version of the Cayenne, the Porsche Cayenne S and its diesel version could be availed – as standard – in black or white exterior finishes as Platinum Edition models. Porsche is also offering five optional exterior colors (metallic paint finishes): Jet Black, Mahogany, Purpurite, Carrara White and Rhodium Silver. While the wheel arch extensions are specified in vehicle color, a number of sporty touches are finished in high-gloss black. The Cayenne S Platinum Edition and the new Cayenne S Diesel Platinum Edition also feature tinted privacy glass at the rear.

Likewise, the Porsche Cayenne S and the Cayenne S Diesel will feature a number of exterior and interior upgrades once they are transformed into Platinum Edition units. High-quality equipment and features usually offered as options are now installed as standard on the new Cayenne S Platinum Edition and the new Cayenne S Diesel Platinum Edition. For instance, these new Platinum Edition models of the Cayenne are provided with – as standard -- 21-inch Sport Edition wheels in Platinum with a satin finish as well as Bi-Xenon main headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS). The Platinum Edition models also come loaded with features like Power Steering Plus as well as front and rear Park-Assist. Automatically dimming interior and exterior mirrors are also fitted as standard.

Inside, the Cayenne S Platinum Edition and the new Cayenne S Diesel Platinum Edition are provided with eight-way leather sports seats -- with Alcantara seat centers -- derived from the Cayenne GTS as well as heated seats, Porsche’s PCM infotainment system with online navigation and a Bose surround audio system. “Platinum Edition” lettering could also be found on the front door entry guards. An analog clock is also mounted on the dashboards of these Platinum Edition models.

Power for the Cayenne S Platinum Edition and Cayenne S Diesel Platinum Edition is still provided by the petrol and diesel engines from these Cayenne S and Cayenne S Diesel counterparts.

Porsche expands Platinum Edition to include two Cayenne S models

Growth for the Platinum Edition from Porsche: The Platinum Editions of the Cayenne S and Cayenne S Diesel contain high-quality equipment that makes these models particularly appealing. The extended standard equipment includes 21-inch Sport Edition wheels in Platinum with a satin finish, eight-way leather sports seats with Alcantara seat centres from the Cayenne GTS as well as a number of other comfort features. Together with the Cayenne Diesel and the Cayenne S E-Hybrid, the Platinum Edition now comprises four Cayenne models.

The high quality of the new Platinum Edition models is demonstrated by their refined yet understated exterior. In addition to the standard exterior colours of black and white, five optional metallic paint finishes are also available: Jet Black, Mahogany, Purpurite, Carrara White and Rhodium Silver. The exterior package includes elegant and sporty touches in high-gloss black, tinted privacy glass at the rear and wheel arch extensions in the vehicle colour.

The Platinum Edition stands for sporty functionality. Bi-Xenon main headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), Power Steering Plus and front and rear Park-Assist make driving effortless, whether travelling on long-distance journeys or driving around the city. The automatically dimming interior and exterior mirrors prevent glare from the traffic behind.

As you enter the vehicle, the “Platinum Edition” lettering is revealed on the front door entry guards of the refined Cayenne S models.
All of the outer headrests bear the Porsche crest and the front seats can be heated. In terms of infotainment, all of the Platinum models are also excellently equipped with Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including Online Navigation, the Connect Plus module and the BOSE® Surround Sound System. A further feature typical of this edition is the sporty analogue clock on the dashboard.

The power and consumption values for the new special models remain the same. The 309-kW (420-hp) 3.6-litre six-cylinder bi-turbo engine in the Cayenne S consumes between 9.8 and 9.5 litres of fuel every 100 km, depending on the tyres. The V8 engine with twin turbocharging in the Cayenne S Diesel generates 283 kW (385 hp) and consumes between 8.2 and 8.0 litres of diesel every 100 km, again depending on the tyres. In Germany, the Cayenne S Platinum Edition costs 87,442 euro and the Cayenne S Diesel Platinum Edition costs 90,417 euro (both incl. VAT).
