The Cayenne Platinum Edition includes several bespoke design changes in satin-finish platinum, including its rear Porsche lettering, front air intakes, 21-inch alloy wheels and model designation. Other features, such as the sports-exhaust tailpipes and side window trims, are coloured black. The exterior paint can be selected in special metallic finishes of Jet Black, Carrara White, Mahogany, Moonlight Blue and Crayon.
Inside, it's finished in textured aluminium with silver-coloured trim. It also gains Crayon-coloured seatbelts, brushed aluminium door sills and a special Platinum Edition logo. The Porsche logo is also embossed onto the front and rear headrests, while the model also gains LED headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System, a panoramic roof and privacy glass.
The Platinum Edition also includes a host of extras as standard, including eight-way electrically adjustable leather sports seats, a premium Bose surround-sound system, ambient lighting and a special analogue clock on the dashboard.

Porsche in India
Porsche has recently added new models to both, the 718 and 911 range. Porsche recently launched the 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 and 718 Boxster GTS 4.0, which are more road-focused sportscars than the track-focused GT4/Spyder models. The German carmaker followed that up with the launch of the 911 GT3 and the 911 GT3 Touring twins. Late last year, Porsche also launched its all-electric supercar, the Taycan, along with the facelifted Macan.
