The year 2022 brought some exceptional new additions to the Porsche family and the launch of a whole host of projects.
Cayenne Platinum Edition
To kick off the year 2022 with a bang Porsche launched the Cayenne Platinum Edition, a model previously known in the Panamera range which was released back in 2021. The Cayenne Platinum Edition is characterised by exclusive design elements a vehicle that will transport you not just to your destination but invigorate your driving experience.

911 50-Year Edition
To celebrate 50 years of Porsche Design an exclusive 911 was designed in honour of the milestone, limited to 750 vehicles. The exclusive model features a homage to the iconic designs of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche.
These features and details include the plain Black exterior, the classic checked pattern of the Sport-Tex seat centre panels and the red second hand of the Porsche Design Subsecond clock from the Sport Chrono Package another shared trait with the Chronograph I from 1972, all features of this car are heavily inspired by iconic product designs of F.A. Porsche.
As part of its anniversary, Porsche Design also relaunched a special timepiece to honour the first completely matt black wristwatch with a stopwatch function which revolutionised the world of watches in 1972. Buyers of the limited-edition car can purchase an equally exclusive timepiece to match.
Back in February, a new member joined the Macan family the T. The Macan T. The T encapsulates everything the Macan stands for the combination of the sports car DNA with SUV practicality. However, this model has a special designation.
The letter T has represented a unique form of dynamic driving at Porsche since the 1960s. It stands for 'Touring' and identifies models that offer an especially authentic driving experience thanks to precise tuning, exclusive equipment and efficient engines. True to the spirit of the Porsche 911 T from 1968, the new Macan T features an incredibly dynamic set-up and a lightweight, two-litre turbo engine, combined with an athletic design and a range of standard equipment that is ideal for a sporty driving style. This concept positions the Macan T between the Macan and the Macan S.
911 Sport Classic
Back to the future – the second of four collector’s items that Porsche has presented in its Heritage Design Strategy.
A total of 1,250 examples of the limited-edition model by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur will revive the style of the 1960s and early 1970s. Like its immediate predecessor, the 997-based 911 Sport Classic presented in 2009, the appearance of this model is inspired by the original 911 (1964 – 1973) and the 1972 911 Carrera RS 2.7.
The heritage Design models represent the most emotionally driven concepts of the Porsche product. The unique approach sees the Style Porsche design department working with Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur to reinterpret iconic 911 models and equipment from the 1950s through to the 1980s and to revive design features from those decades.
