    Default 2018 Porsche Cayenne

    Porsche debuts SA-bound next-gen Cayenne, Cayenne S

    Porsche has debuted its third-generation Cayenne at an event in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen. Porsche has sold 760 000 units of its popular SUV since its 2002.

    Porsche says its third-generation Cayenne is based heavily on the iconic 911 sports car; the SUV features mixed tyres and rear-axle steering.

    Porsche South Africa says the new model will arrive in South Africa in June 2018, but pricing is not available yet at this time.

    Despite its extended standard equipment, the Cayenne weighs up to 65 kilograms less than its predecessor and remains perfectly suited to off-road use.

    Its turbo engines are mated to a new eight-speed Tiptronic S gearbox, new chassis systems and innovative Porsche Advanced Cockpit display.

    There are two newly developed six-cylinder engines to choose from: The Cayenne's 250kW , three-litre turbo engine delivers 29kW more than the previous model.

    The 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine in the Cayenne S, which reaches speeds of up to 265km/h, brings it up to 324kW – an increase of 15kW. Equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package, the new Cayenne S accelerates from zero to 100km/h in less than 5 seconds.

    Engines, power output

    Two turbocharged six-cylinder petrol engines will be available, with 250kW in the Cayenne and 324kW in the Cayenne S. The Cayenne S has a top speed of 265km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in under 5 seconds.

    In addition, the on-road capabilities are further improved by active all-wheel drive as standard, Porsche 4D Chassis Control, three-chamber air suspension, the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) electronic roll stabilisation system and the newly developed, high-performance Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB).

    Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board at Porsche AG says: "We have completely redeveloped our successful model. It has been visibly and tangibly improved and perfected in all respects. The Cayenne has also been digitalised and networked throughout to give it a forward-thinking design.

    Michael Mauer, Director of Style at Porsche AG: "Our primary objective was to accentuate the character of the vehicle. More Porsche, more Cayenne. The new Cayenne is more precise, elegant, athletic and expressive", he said , who unveiled the style of the new Cayenne alongside Peter Varga (Director Exterior Design) and Ivo van Hulten (Director Interior Design).

    New Porsche Cayenne Revealed

    After numerous teasers, the Porsche Cayenne has been officially revealed ahead of its debut at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. Take a look at the details!

    The Cayenne is a money-spinner for Porsche in a booming SUV market and the all-new, third generation model has now been revealed. Let's dig into the details!

    What's on offer?

    The new Cayenne will make its official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2017.

    Porsche will initially offer 2 Cayenne derivatives at launch including the standard Cayenne and the sportier Cayenne S. Additional variants such as the Cayenne Hybrid, Turbo and GTS will likely be introduced in due course.

    The Cayenne will be powered by a 6-cylinder, turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine with 250 kW and 450 Nm of torque. A new Tiptronic S 8-speed automatic transmission in conjunction with an active all-wheel drive system will ensure a zero to 100 kph sprint time of around 5.9 seconds. With the optional Chrono Package, more time will be shaved off to around 5.6 seconds.

    The Cayenne S on the other hand will offer 324 kW and 550 Nm of torque from its 6-cylinder, twin-turbo 2.9-litre V6 engine using an 8-speed automatic transmission. zero to 100 kph will take about 4.9 seconds before claiming a top speed of 265 kph.

    The familiar Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) will be offered as standard on the Cayenne S while it will be optional for the base Cayenne. A new 3-chamber air suspension system will be optional as is the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) which enhances responsiveness using stabiliser bars controlled via a 48 V electrical system.

    Design details

    Exterior

    The new Cayenne is slightly larger than the outgoing model but weighs some 65 kg less.

    The extensive use of aluminum has contributed to a reduction in weight by up to 65 kg and the Cayenne now weighs 1985 kg. The wheelbase remains identical to the outgoing model at 2 896 mm while the overall length has grown marginally by 76 mm to 4 828 mm. Porsche says load space has grown by some 15% and the Cayenne now offers a load capacity of 770 litres.

    In terms of styling, the new Cayenne features a redesigned front end with larger air intakes and new LED headlights. The looks are similar to that of the outgoing model at the front, but the rear has a new light arrangement much like the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo. A lowered roofline give the Cayenne a purposeful stance and wheel sizes from 19 to 21 inches will be offered while rear-wheel steering will be offered as an option. Porsche Surface Coated Brakes (PSCB) and high-performance carbon ceramic brakes will also be offered as options.

    Interior

    The big changes are found in the cabin where the instrument cluster is now a mostly digital affair with a central analogue tachometer flanked by two 7-inch displays. There's also a large 12.3-inch infotainment system which sits in the middle of the dashboard. It features full digital functionality, just like that found in the Porsche Panamera.

    The Cayenne can be specified with a range of assistance systems including Night Vision Assist which uses thermal imaging to detect pedestrians and animals, lane change assist, lane keep assist with traffic sign recognition, traffic jam assist, park assist with surround view and adaptive cruise control.

    You can expect to see the new Porsche Cayenne in South Africa in 2018. We will keep you updated as local pricing and specification details become available.

    New Porsche Cayenne promises sportier vibes

    Porsche officially pulled the covers off its new third-generation Cayenne SUV on Tuesday night and although its design wasn’t a surprise, thanks to a picture leak over the weekend, there is plenty to talk about on the technological front.

    Porsche says that the all-new Cayenne is closer to a sportscar in spirit than ever before. The snazzy SUV gains rear-axle steering for the first time, while wheel sizes move up an inch (now between 19 and 21 inches) and the rear end gets wider tyres than the front. It’s also 9mm lower and 65kg lighter than before, despite having gained 63mm in overall length, while the wheelbase remains unchanged at 2895mm.

    Only the standard Cayenne and Cayenne S will be available at launch, but rest assured that Porsche will add the usual performance derivatives to the range further down the line.

    The good news is that even the ‘base’ models are somewhat beefier than before, with the standard Cayenne getting a new 3-litre single-turbo V6 that produces 250kW and 450Nm, 30kW and 50Nm more than before, and enough to rush it from 0-100km/h in 6.2 seconds (or 5.9s when fitted with the Sport Chrono package), says Porsche.

    The new Cayenne S ups the fun factor with Porsche’s 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6, which produces 324kW and 550Nm (up 15kW), sprints to 100 in 5.2 seconds (4.9 with Sport Chrono) and reaches a top speed of 265km/h.

    Both models send their power to all four wheels through a new eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic gearbox and a fully-variable ‘active’ AWD system. Although the default mode is ‘on road’, as you’d expect, there are four off-road modes in place so that you can tell your friends that it’s capable off the beaten track too. These are: Mud, Gravel, Sand or Rocks, for the record.

    The third-generation Cayenne sits on a redesigned chassis, managed by Porsche’s 4D Chassic Control System, and adaptive damping is standard on the Cayenne S. Buyers wanting an even cushier experience can opt for adaptive air suspension with new three-chamber technology.

    The Cayenne will be offered with the latest-generation Sport Chrono Package, featuring newly-added individual and PSM Sport modes, and buyers can also specify Porsche Surface Coated brakes with tungsten-carbide coating.

    The Cayenne’s aforementioned weight loss is largely attributed to a new lightweight structure that Porsche says is an intelligent combination of alloy and steel. The entire exterior, for instance, is made from aluminium, as is the floorpan assembly and almost all chassis components.

    Despite being so different beneath the skin, the new SUV takes a decidedly evolutionary approach to exterior styling, although the rear end is markedly different thanks to its Panamera-inspired joined taillights. It gets some cool new headlight options too. While LED headlights are standard, buyers can upgrade to matrix beam lights, featuring 84 individually activated light-emitting diodes that are capable of fully variable light distribution and intensity.

    Inside the cabin, the Cayenne has undergone a similar digital revolution to its Panamera sibling, inheriting its 31.2cm high-definition touchscreen, which offers various online services. The instrument cluster is a mixture of traditional and digital, with a central analogue rev counter flanked by a pair of digital displays.

    The SA spec sheet and lineup should mirror what’s offered abroad when the newcomer hits our shores around June 2018. Prices will be announced closer to the time.

    New Porsche Cayenne Turbo lands with smaller V8 offering 29bhp boost

    Smaller capacity engine provides greater power and enhanced performance

    The new third-generation Porsche Cayenne Turbo has been revealed at the Frankfurt motor show.

    Following on the from the new 335bhp turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 powered Cayenne and 434bhp turbocharged 2.9-litre V6 Cayenne S revealed in Stuttgart in late August, the new range topping Porsche SUV receives a new turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 developing 29bhp and 15lb ft more than the earlier second-generation model’s turbocharged 4.8-litre V8 at 534bhp and 568lb ft.

    The boosted reserves are channelled through a new eight-speed torque converter equipped automatic gearbox and electro-hydraulic four-wheel drive system, with Porsche claiming a 0-62mph time of just 3.9sec in combination with the new SUV’s optional Sport Chrono Package. That’s 0.4sec faster than its predecessor and 0.2sec faster than the previous Cayenne Turbo S.

    Without the Sport Chrono Package, the new Cayenne Turbo matches the 0-62mph time of the earlier Cayenne Turbo S at 4.1sec.

    An active aerodynamic package featuring a spoiler that deploys from atop the tail gate also provides the new Porsche model with a claimed top speed of 178mph. This is up by 7mph on the previous generation Cayenne Turbo.

    Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are put at 24.1mpg and 267g/km respectively. This compares to the previous model’s 25.2mpg and 261g/km.

    The active spoiler, a first for the Cayenne, acts as both a spoiler to increase downforce and an airbrake under braking, stopping the car two metres sooner from 155mph, Porsche claims, as well as optimising efficiency in everyday driving.

    The steel disc brakes have been coated in tungsten carbide, which reduces brake dust, increases performance and decreases wear, although ceramic composite brakes are available as an option.

    The new Cayenne Turbo receives the same new exterior styling as other new Cayenne models but with a more aggressively styled front end, widened wheel arches housing standard 21-inch wheels shod with 285/40 front and 315/35 rear tyres and trapezoidal tailpipes.

    An advanced new chassis with rear-wheel steering, electronic roll stabilization via a new 48-volt electrical system, torque vectoring and an air suspension that uses three chambers on each spring strut for faster reactions is claimed to enhance the Cayenne Turbo’s handling and off-road prowess. It provides six different levels of ride height.

    The Cayenne Turbo will cost €138,850 in Germany. UK pricing is yet to be announced.

    Porsche Cayenne Turbo

    With its world premiere at the 2017 International Motor Show in Frankfurt, the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo is taking its place at the top of the model line. The completely new top-of-the-range model from the third generation of the Cayenne is once again raising the bar for sporty performance in its segment. The four-litre V8 biturbo engine delivers 404 kW (550 hp). The increased driving dynamics are based on the combination of innovative technologies, such as active aerodynamics including roof spoiler, controlled three-chamber air suspension, mixed tyres and the new high-performance brake. With additional options, such as rear-axle steering or electric roll stabilisation with a 48-volt system, the SUV can even achieve the driving characteristics of a true sports car. The new Cayenne Turbo accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds (3.9 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package) and reaches a top speed of 286 km/h.

    Even sharper design

    With an exclusive front end and the LED main headlights of the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), the Porsche Cayenne Turbo has an appearance that is both dominant and independent. At night, the new Turbo sets itself apart from other Cayenne models with its double-row front light modules. The side view is characterised by standard 21-inch Turbo wheels specially reserved for the top model, in widened wheel arches with painted wheel arch trims. The twin tailpipes, specific to the Turbo, are the key distinguishing features on the rear end. The door trims and rear apron are painted in the exterior colour. The completely new interior demonstrates the increased spread of the Cayenne Turbo: more sportiness and more comfort at the same time. Virtually all the vehicle functions of the fully networked SUV can be displayed and operated using the high-resolution display and touchscreen of the Porsche Advanced Cockpit. Among them, for example, is the BOSE Surround Sound System with 710 watts, fitted as standard. Drivers and passengers experience this top-of-the-range model in sports seats with 18-way adjustment. The integrated headrests are a new feature and are also reminiscent of the 911. All seats and the multifunction sports steering wheel in an exclusive Turbo design are heated as standard.

    Greater power, greater torque: biturbo eight-cylinder with 550 hp

    At the heart of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo is the new four-litre V8 engine with twin turbocharging. With an output of 404 kW (550 hp), it exceeds the engine of its predecessor by 22 kW (30 hp), while the maximum torque of 770 Nm represents an increase of 20 Nm. The new eight-speed Tiptronic S converts both into acceleration and speed by means of the active all-wheel drive Porsche Traction Management (PTM). The new Turbo sprints to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds (3.9 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package) and reaches a top speed of 286 km/h. As is characteristic for new engine generations, the exhaust turbochargers are arranged inside the cylinder V, in the "central turbo layout". The shortened exhaust paths between the combustion chambers and the turbochargers mean that the engine is especially responsive, while the central turbo layout results in significantly improved power delivery. Another advantage is the compact construction of the engine. This enables a lower installation position, which has a positive effect on the driving dynamics: The centre of gravity is lower and the cornering precision is higher.

    Active chassis with three-chamber air suspension and mixed tyres

    The new lightweight chassis of the Cayenne Turbo combines the best of three worlds: the precision of a sports car, the comfort of a saloon and the adaptability of an off-road vehicle. In particular, the combination of the new three-chamber air suspension with the active shock-absorber system PASM extends the range considerably. The concept of the new mixed tyres with standard dimensions of 285/40 at the front and 315/35 at the rear comes from sports car construction and produces even better longitudinal and lateral power transmission. Three air chambers per spring strut are used in the adaptive air suspension design, therefore the chassis is able to map different spring rates. With six selectable height levels, the ground clearance can be manually adjusted to suit the offroad terrain. They are also actively controlled via five new driving programmes for road journeys and off-road journeys. Complemented by optional rear-axle steering, the electric Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) roll stabilisation connected to a 48-volt vehicle electrical system and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV+), the new Cayenne Turbo achieves the driving dynamics of a sports car. At the same time, its everyday suitability in terms of parking and turning manoeuvres is improved, as is the comfort level.

    First SUV with adaptive roof spoiler and new high-performance brake

    The new Porsche Cayenne Turbo is the first SUV to have an adaptive roof spoiler as a component of its active aerodynamics. Depending on the position, this optimises efficiency, increases downforce on the rear axle and, in the airbrake position, shortens the braking distance from higher speeds. At full braking from 250 km/h, the SUV comes to a stop up to two metres earlier as a result. The aerodynamic system therefore complements the effect of the new high-performance Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB) which takes care of deceleration in the Cayenne Turbo as standard. The tungsten carbide layer applied to the steel discs increases braking performance and resistance to wear while reducing the amount of brake dust at the same time, meaning less dirt on the rims. The top system in the programme remains the optional Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB).

    The new Porsche Cayenne Turbo is available to order now, with the market launch in Europe scheduled for the end of 2017. In Germany, the top model of the SUV model line costs EUR 138,850 including VAT and country-specific features.

    New Porsche Cayenne Turbo hits 100 km/h in 3,9 sec!

    It’s no secret that Porsche knows how to make a fast car in just about any format, be it a mid-engined hypercar, a LeMans prototype, a two-tonne wagon or indeed an SUV. But that doesn’t make the reveal of the blisteringly quick new Porsche Cayenne Turbo any less impressive.

    Adding to the new, third-generation Cayenne range that debuted just a few weeks ago, the Turbo variant adopts a twin-turbo 4,0-litre V8 sending 404 kW and 770 N.m to all four wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.

    This results in a claimed 0-100 km/h time of 4,1 seconds, although fitting the Sport Chrono Package cuts that time some two-tenths to 3,9 seconds. Top speed, meanwhile, comes in at 286 km/h.

    Of course, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo boasts more than mere straight-line performance. This is also the first SUV, according to Porsche, to be fitted with active aerodynamics in the shape of a nifty adaptive roof spoiler.

    It furthermore features a new high-performance braking system that makes use of a tungsten carbide layer applied to the surface of the steel disc. This promises to improve braking performance and reduce wear.

    The new Porsche Cayenne Turbo also gains an active chassis that makes use of a three-chamber air suspension system along with Michelin Latitude Sport tyres (285/40 R21 up front and 315/35 R21 at the rear). The air suspension system features six settings (including off-road modes).

    The first examples are scheduled to arrive in South Africa in June 2018, although local pricing and specifications have yet to be announced.

    Porsche unleashes all-new 404kW Cayenne Turbo

    When Porsche unveiled its third-generation Cayenne SUV on 29 August, it didn’t let all the cats out of the bag, holding something in reserve for the opening of the show, just a week later.

    And that something was the Cayenne Turbo - the flagship of the new model line-up - although, truth to tell, Porsche is going to have to find a new name for its most potent pepper shaker, since every model in the Cayenne range is now turbocharged.

    This one, however, has a four-litre biturbo V8, rated at 404kW and 770Nm, 22kW and 20Nm up on the previous Cayenne Turbo. That’s delivered to all four wheels via a new eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission, with the help of active torque control, launching it to 100km/h in 4.1s (3.9 with the optional Sport Chrono package) and on to 286km/h flat out.

    As is rapidly becoming the industry norm, the turbos are nestled in the V of the engine, making the distance from the combustion chambers to the turbo as short as possible, reducing turbo lag and making the engine more compact.

    The Cayenne rolls on a new three-chamber air suspension system with active damping and, in true sports-car tradition, wider tyres (315/35) at the rear than in front (285/40), on special 21 inch Turbo rims.

    The brakes have also been upgraded for the new Turbo with a layer of ultra-hard tungsten carbide on each steel disc,which not only increases braking performance and resistance to wear, says Porsche, but also reduces the amount of brake dust on the rims!

    The Cayenne Turbo is also the first SUV with an adaptive roof spoiler, which flattens out when you’re running at high speed in a straight line, pops up to increase downforce on the rear axle when you hit the brakes and stays that way to improve cornering grip until you straighten up and hit the loud pedal again.

    This is not a gimmick, says Porsche: all other things being equal, it shortens the braking distance from 250km/h to a dead stop by up to two metres.
    For ultimate stopping power, however, there are always the optional ceramic composite brakes. More performance options include rear-axle steering and 48 volt electric roll stabilisation.

    The Cayenne Turbo’s distinctive front treatment includes adaptive LED headlights, in double-row modules, while the 21 inch wheels fill flared wheel arches with body-colour trim, and the dual tailpipes tell the GTI Joes that what just passed them was indeed a Cayenne Turbo.

    You and your front passenger are accommodated in sports seats with integrated head restraints styled from the 911 and 18-way power adjustment, while all five occupants get the benefit of the standard-fit 710 watt Bose surround sound system.

    Porsche South Africa is expecting first deliveries of the new Cayenne Turbo during June 2018; prices and local=market specification will be published closer to the time.

    SUV supreme: Porsche’s new Cayenne Turbo

    It’s finally here! After plenty of teasing, Porsche has officially introduced the all-new Cayenne Turbo, and it’s a sublime stunner on some serious steroids.

    We were lucky enough to be invited on a driving preview of the new Cayenne range in the foothills of the Pyrenees back in August (before its reveal later in the month), and found it to be quite sensational - when the slowest (or rather, least brutal) model in the range hits 100km/h in under 6 seconds, you know you’re dealing with something special (these are full-sized SUVs, people!)

    The Turbo model unveiled today in Frankfurt is a good 30% quicker - hitting 100 kph in just 4.1 seconds and surging onwards to 286 kph thanks to its growling 4.0-litre V8 biturbo which delivers 404 kW and an obscene 770 Nm. With a somewhat lighter foot, it will still manage to keep fuel consumption at under 12 L/100 km on the combined cycle. The engine is mounted lower than its predecessor, which enhances driving dynamics.

    There’s a lot of impressive stuff going on in the new Turbo that contributes to it achieving the dynamics of a true sports car, such as the electric Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) roll stabilisation connected to a 48-volt vehicle electrical system, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV+) and (optional) rear-axle steering.

    It’ll be capable off-road too, with six different ride height options.

    Probably the first thing you’ll notice from the side are the 21-inch wheels specially reserved for the top model, in widened wheel arches with painted wheel arch trims. The twin tailpipes, also specific to the Turbo, are the key distinguishing features on the rear end.

    The completely new interior demonstrates the increased spread of the Cayenne Turbo: more sportiness and more comfort at the same time. Virtually all the vehicle functions of the fully networked SUV can be displayed and operated using the high-resolution display and touchscreen of the Porsche Advanced Cockpit.

    This is the first SUV to have an adaptive roof spoiler to improve aerodynamics and braking. Oh, and you (and all your passengers) can adjust your exclusive heated Turbo seats in 18 different ways — nice.

    You can expect to see the new Porsche Cayenne in South Africa in 2018. We will keep you updated as local pricing and specification details become available.

    First ride: 2017 Porsche Cayenne Turbo

    Porsche says the new Cayenne SUV borrows heavily from the 911. We took a ride to find out if that’s true

    It’s been a remarkable run of success for the Porsche Cayenne.

    Having stunned sports car purists when it was introduced in 2002, the first-generation model racked up more than 270,000 sales in six years – setting Porsche on a path to record profitability, all-time sales highs and long-term financial security.

    Then that as eclipsed by the second-generation Cayenne, which has just ceased production. Launched in 2008, more than 500,000 were sold globally, making it the most successful Porsche model yet and firmly establishing Porsche in key markets such as China.

    So there are big expectations on the third generation, which goes on sale in 2018 – especially given that it faces increased competition from luxury SUV rivals including the Audi Q7, Bentley Bentayga, BMW X5, Jaguar F-Pace, Mercedes-Benz GLE and Range Rover Sport.

    Porsche CEO Oliver Blume is bullish about the new car, saying: “The new Cayenne is a Porsche by all means and with no compromises. Never before has it borrowed so much from the 911.”

    The new line-up will initially consist of three models: Cayenne, Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo. All three feature a new eight-speed automatic gearbox and revised four-wheel drive boasting fully variable apportioning of power and five driving modes to suit a variety of terrain: On-Road, Mud, Gravel, Sand and Rocks.

    The Cayenne will run the same 3.0-litre 335bhp, 332lb ft V6 that’s in the Panamera, giving it 40bhp and 37lb ft more than the old car. It covers 0-62mph in 6.2sec (5.9sec with an optional Sport Chrono Package) and has a 152mph top speed, making it 1.4sec quicker and 9mph more than the previous model.

    The Cayenne S receives a more powerful 2.9-litre turbo V6. With 434bhp and 405lb ft, it packs 20bhp more as the naturally aspirated 3.6-litre V6 engine it replaces while matching its torque. Porsche claims 0-62mph in 5.2sec (4.9sec with the Sport Chrono Package) and a top speed of 165mph, improvements of 0.3sec and 4mph.

    The Cayenne Turbo runs a new turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 developing 29bhp and 15lb ft more than the second-generation model’s turbocharged 4.8-litre V8 at 534bhp and 568lb ft. The boosted reserves are channelled through a new eight-speed torque converter-equipped automatic gearbox and electro-hydraulic four-wheel-drive system, with Porsche claiming a 0-62mph time of just 3.9sec with the optional Sport Chrono Package. That’s 0.4sec faster than its predecessor and 0.2sec faster than the second-generation Cayenne Turbo S.
