Only 100 copies of the Porsche Panamera Exclusive Series will be produced worldwide, and the public will get their first glimpse at this special model during next month's Los Angeles auto show. This limited-edition model comes with a two-tone color theme, black 20-inch wheels, and a specially crafted interior with an all-new entertainment system.
Priced at $264,895, including a $995 destination fee, this model is more than three times as expensive as a standard Panamera. It is actually based on the long-wheelbase Panamera Turbo S Executive model, which starts at $201,495 and offers 570 hp.
Black and brown may not be the colors that initially come to mind when you think "luxury," but the combination seems to work in this Panamera's favor. The exterior elicits an elegant glossy look with Jet Black metallic paint contrasting with Chestnut Brown in the center of the side panels. Porsche says that each of the 100 vehicles will be hand-painted "to ensure a perfect harmonious progression of the two colors."
To make the vehicles stand apart from lesser Panamera models, each limited-edition sedan receives hand-made exterior badges behind the front air intakes and an interior plaque to signify its status as an exclusive model. One-off 20-inch Sport Classic wheels complete the look.
Peeking inside reveals a similar black and brown theme. Brown leather seats complement brown stitching throughout the interior as well as black Nappa leather door trim. Decorative elements include dark walnut wood that transitions into a deep black piano lacquer.
The Panamera Exclusive Series will also include Porsche's first Rear Seat Entertainment Plus System, which is a standard feature on this model. The system features two 10.1-inch touchscreens implanted into the back of the front headrests to keep backseat passengers entertained. It is complete with a built-in camera and DVD player, and sound comes through wireless headphones or the Burmester surround sound system.
