The Panamera Edition also boasts a two-tone standard interior in Black / Luxor Beige with the Porsche crest embossed on all head rests, Sport Design steering wheel, door sill plates with “Edition” lettering, and special floor mats. The standard Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system with a seven-inch touchscreen combines audio, navigation, and communication capabilities.
Additional extensive standard technical features for the Panamera Edition models include Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Bi-Xenon headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), Park Assist front and rear including reversing camera and Power Steering Plus.
