2022 Porsche panamera Platinum Edition is Porscheit’s a stab at an entry level Panamera variant with a hint of special edition cache. You can specify this new Platinum Edition for these three models: Panamera, Panamera 4 and Panamera 4 E-Hybrid.

To differentiate it from a standard Panamera, it has 21-inch exclusively designed sports wheels with a Satin Platinum finish. The same finish also applies to the side air outlet louvers and the rear model designation. Porsche adds black painted “sports tailpipes”, high-gloss black window trims, PDLS + (Porsche Dynamic Lighting System Plus) and its uniquely designed taillights. You can choose between 13 different standard or metallic colors free of charge, but any other color will be extra.

Inside, the polished aluminum sill guards are inscribed “Platinum Edition”. The same “Platinum Edition” lettering is also written on the headrests. Beyond that, Porsche just loads you with options. These extras include black brushed aluminum trim, soft-close doors, 14-way comfort seats (heated and cooled in the front, heated in the rear), four-zone climate control, Bose surround sound system and warning blind spot.

As for performance extras, all Platinum editions will have Porsche’s Adaptive Air Suspension with PASM and Power Steering Plus that automatically adjusts steering effort at low speeds to make it easier to turn the wheel.
