Additional customization options for four-door sports cars
Atlanta. Porsche announces two new customization options for the Cayenne, Macan, and Panamera models. An elaborate Rear Seat Entertainment system for all four-door sports cars, and also new to the Cayenne model range, Sport Classic wheels including wheel arch extensions.
The Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment system saw its world premiere in the luxuriously equipped Panamera Turbo S Exclusive Series, with production limited to just 100 units. Now this system is available for all Panamera, Cayenne, and Macan models. The main components of the new Rear Seat Entertainment system are two high-resolution 10.1-inch color touchscreen displays with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels integrated in the front seat backrests.
It has an extensive range of equipment, including an integrated DVD player, two USB ports, an SD card slot and an HDMI port to allow connection of an external video game console, for example. Both of the displays also boast a camera to permit video calls. The system supports several audio and video formats. The WiFi Crosslink Streaming function allows videos to be displayed on both screens via a direct WiFi connection. The sound is delivered via Bluetooth using the two wireless headphones, included as standard. The Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment package is also available in a Plus version which offers an internal 32 GB Flash drive for saving multimedia files.
An Internet browser allows mobile internet access, and a special app lets you send and receive emails on the road. Additional apps, such as games or video call apps, can be downloaded from an online store. The internet connection can be established using an optional wireless internet connection or using the customer's own smartphone or tablet as a WiFi hotspot. A smartphone or tablet can also be used, with the corresponding app, as a remote control for the Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment system. In the U.S. this feature has a MSRP of $2,590.00, and the Plus version has a MSRP of $2,890.00.
The Cayenne's new Sport Classic design five-spoke alloy wheels including wheel arch extensions are a distinctive highlight. The wheel dimensions are 10 J x 21 ET 50 (front and rear axle) with 295/35 ZR 21 tires. These wheels can be finished in GT Silver metallic, Platinum satin, or High Gloss Black and are available at the end of May. From early November, they will also be available painted in the exterior color of the car.
