Porsche is exclusively offering the Cayenne Diesel Platinum Edition in a brand new Carrara white paint finish; however, the luxury SUV is also available with 5 colour options including black, white, metallic meteor grey, jet black and mahogany.
The exclusivity is maintained inside the cabin as well which now features two-tone black Luxor beige combination for the interior finished in partial leather. The headrests have been embossed with the Porsche crest, while the floor mats and scuff plates get the ‘Platinum Edition’ title completing the exclusive new look on the interior. The major addition to the Platinum edition has been the new standard features available that includes the Sport Design steering wheel with paddle shifters, 19-inch Cayenne Design II wheels with coloured crest, Power Steering Plus and the Porsche Communication Management (PCM), which also features the navigation module.
