Porsche’s design arm has chosen an SUV this time round to continue the run of specially “decorated” Porsche Design cars. Like its Porsche Cayman S Design Edition 1 and Boxster S Design Edition 2, the Cayenne GTS Design Edition 3 sports the unmistakable three stripes on its doors and hood.
The stripes almost blend in with the Lava Grey Metallic (dark grey) trim, with bi-xenon headlights with black surrounds, dark tinted glass, and dark 21-inch Sport Plus wheels to complete the stealth look. The interiors carry the theme further with black leather upholstery in red stitching, and “Porsche Design Edition 3” badging galore.
Performance figures remain the same as its regular SUV cousins, though this Design Edition comes with a Porsche Design chronograph and a four-piece luggage set thrown in as part of the package. Only 1,000 of these Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition will be available, starting at 79,100 euros in Europe. Next up: a Porsche Panamera Design Edition 4 in a couple of years’ time?
