Porsche Cars Aus­tralia, PCA, has marked the 10th an­niver­sary of the orig­i­nal Panam­era four­door sedan with the re­lease of the Panam­era 10 Years Edi­tion, which touched down in show­rooms from $236,000 plus on-road costs.

The spe­cial-edi­tion sedan will only be of­fered in the en­try-level Panam­era and the Panam­era 4 E-hy­brid, $266,100, forms, with the 10 Years Edi­tion com­mand­ing a premium of $17,000 and $13,700 re­spec­tively.

PCA has packed a num­ber of ex­tra fea­tures into the 10 Years Edi­tion to dif­fer­en­ti­ate it from its reg­u­lar coun­ter­parts, start­ing with Panam­era10 lo­gos in White Gold me­tal­lic on the front doors, with the logo also found on the front pas­sen­ger trim panel and door en­try guards.

New 21-inch Panam­era Sport De­sign wheels in satin-gloss white gold me­tal­lic are in­cluded as stan­dard, while the white gold colour is also found on the con­trast stitch­ing for the par­tial leather in­te­rior.

The 10 Years Edi­tions also scores LED Ma­trix head­lights with Porsche Dy­namic Light Sys­tem Plus, lanechange as­sist, soft-close doors, rear seats with a through-load­ing sys­tem, a ski bag and Porsche crests on the head re­straints.

On the dy­namic side, three-cham­ber adap­tive air sus­pen­sion with Porsche Ac­tive Sus­pen­sion Man­age­ment stan­dard, as is Power Steer­ing Plus.

No changes have been made to the pow­er­trains in the 10 Years Edi­tions, with the Panam­era car­ry­ing over its 243kw-450nm 3.0-litre turbo-petrol V6 engine, pow­er­ing the rear wheels via an eight-speed PDK dual-clutch trans­mis­sion.

The Panam­era 4 E-hy­brid em­ploys a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 mated to a 100kw elec­tric mo­tor, for a com­bined to­tal out­put of 340kw, driv­ing all four wheels also via an eight-speed PDK.

The hy­brid 10 Years Edi­tion also up­grades its on-board charger from a 3.6kw ca­pac­ity to 7.2kw. is
