…but is giving new car buyers some sweeteners to hop behind the wheel of the current one.
A short time ago, Porsche brought out a special version of the range-topping Panamera Turbo S Executive, and now the entry level, V-6-powered Panamera models are getting the special treatment too.
During the 2015 New York Auto Show, Porsche rolled out the 2016 Panamera Edition and Panamera 4 Edition models.
This car is standing apart from the regular pack as a result of high-gloss black trim strips on the side windows, 19-inch wheels borrowed from the Panamera Turbo, and body-matching door handles (when Porsche Entry & Drive is selected).
When it comes to the Porsche Panamera interior:
there’s a standard two-tone leather, door sill plates with “Edition” lettering, a Sport Design steering wheel, special floor mats, and the Porsche logo embossed on the headrests.
Also, you get a Bose premium sound system with 14 speakers.
Some of the technical specifications made standard on the Panamera Edition and Panamera 4 Edition:
include active suspension, a backup camera, adaptive lights, speed-sensitive speeding and parking sensors.
Power in both models comes from a naturally-aspirated 3.6-liter V-6 producing 310 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.
The transmission is Porsche’s seven-speed PDK dual-clutch unit.
Sales of the 2016 Porsche Panamera Edition models start in June…
…while prices are starting at $80,995 for the rear-wheel-drive model and $85,295 for the all-wheel-drive model. Both figures include Porsche’s standard $995 destination charge.
