A car should reflect what you stand for and if you’re a passionate, driven and successful woman, finding a machine that mirrors that excellence might be a tough call. Fortunately, there is one marque that is on par—Porsche has been creating sports cars for those driven by dreams since 1948.
When Ferry Porsche created the legendary Porsche 356, he famously said: “At the beginning I looked around, but I could not find the car I was dreaming of. So I decided to build it myself.” Since then, Porsche has earned a reputation building some of the world’s best sports cars, with decades of success both on and off the racetrack. This glittering reputation comes in no small part from an ability to innovate to form new perspectives—a trait shared among many women.
New platinum grades
True to this form, Porsche recently unveiled shiny new perspectives on its Cayenne and Cayenne Coupe, aptly named Platinum Edition. The Cayenne is Porsche’s groundbreaking sports utility vehicle (SUV), combining the luxury, space and practicality of an SUV with Porsche’s iconic motorsports-derived DNA. The Cayenne Coupe offers similar practicality, but adds a touch of style and dynamism with a swooping roofline and sportier handling characteristics. The new Platinum Edition grading is available on selected variants within the Cayenne and Cayenne Coupe line-up: the standard model with a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 engine producing 340PS and the S with a more powerful 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 producing 440PS.
Choosing to go Platinum is only the start of a wondrous journey to your perfect automobile—with the car’s near-limitless range of options, the result is as fabulous as you want it to be.
Lap of luxury
As their metallic monikers imply, these new Platinum Edition models add sartorial flair to the Cayenne and Cayenne Coupe through thoughtful design touches and useful additional standard equipment that elevate the driving and ownership experiences to new heights. It is a vision to behold from afar, a glorious ride that will have passers-by whip their phones out to snap pictures with envy.
Sleek 21-inch RS Spyder Design wheels come as standard equipment, finished in satin platinum. Step into the car and you’re greeted with Platinum Edition lettering on the door sill guards, coated in brushed aluminium. Once you’re seated comfortably, you’ll start noticing even more touches that reiterate the Platinum theme—a satin platinum trim for the air inlet louvres, alongside slick seat belts in crayon grey.
The Platinum Edition models also boast additional standard equipment aimed at a more luxurious experience. A panoramic roof system lets in natural light for a cosy ambience on longer drives, and when night falls, ambient lighting means you can choose a colour theme that matches your mood. It’s not just a feast for your eyes, either—the Platinum Edition models add Bose Surround Sound Systems to the standard equipment list, perfect for taking your favourite music up a notch.
Safety in style
In addition to style, the new Platinum Edition range also focuses on safety: Porsche Dynamic Lighting System is now standard, automatically adjusting the main beam according to speed of travel and integrating a dynamic cornering light to illuminate the inside of curved roads for clearer, safer turns at all speeds. Once you’ve arrived at your destination, Park Assist with Surround View makes parking the car a cinch—even in your highest heels.
That’s not all—autonomous braking is an intelligent standard feature, which can detect other vehicles or even pedestrians, and stop the car automatically. There are also optional active safety systems—such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keeping Assist— to make your time behind the wheel even more seamless. Adaptive Cruise Control regulates the speed of your car in line with the vehicle in front to keep accidents at bay, while Lane Keeping Assist ensures side swiping is not an option.
Porsche’s unwavering stance on safety is unparalleled, which makes it an ideal ride no matter your comfort levels on the road. It truly is a car that pleases—a sustainable commuter to work or ferry the kids around during the week, and a practical sports car with soul and matchless performance on the weekend.
