2016 Porsche Panamera Edition models to debut at the New York Auto Show

Porsche is all set to debut its next-generation model of the Panamera but the German marquee is giving the current model line-up a slew of special treatments before it is taken off the production lines. Porsche recently launched a special edition version of the range-topping Panamera Turbo S Executive, and now it had introduced a special variant of the entry-level V6 powered Panamera models. Surprisingly, instead of calling it special edition, Porsche just wants to stick with the word ‘Edition’ on this one. Slated to debut at the 2015 New York Auto Show this week, the all-new Panamera Edition and Panamera 4 Edition models feature very subtle upgrades. The changes are so subtle that in fact it might be very difficult to differentiate it from the standard models at the first glance.

The sills are etched with the word “Edition” and the cars can be ordered with body-colored door handles if you pay extra for Porsche Entry & Drive. On the inside, the cabin has Porsche logos in the seat headrests, 14-way adjustable front seats, climate controlled seats throughout, and a two-tone treatment in black and Luxor Beige. The package also includes electronically controlled dampers (PASM), speed-sensitive power steering (Power Steering Plus) and Park Assist. The Porsche Panamera Edition models will go on sale in June and the prices start at $80,995 for the rear-wheel-drive model and $85,295 for the all-wheel-drive model. That’s an increase of only $1900 over the standard Panamera or $1500 over the base Panamera 4.
