The Porsche Cajun baby SUV is coming and according to a new report a 2-door version will likely follow. Expected to arrive initially as a four-door, built on the same platform as the Audi Q5, Porsche may look to bring to market an even sportier coupe-styled model to compete with vehicles like the Range Rover Evoque.
According to Car & Driver the Cajun’s styling would certainly adapt well to a coupe version with its dimensions being shorter, wider and lower to the ground than the Q5.
Expected to be available exclusively with all-wheel drive, the Cajun will get several engine choices borrowed from Audi including the 2.0 TFSI rated at around 220-hp, to a 3.0-liter V6 rated at 300-hp. Look for an even higher-performance Cajun model eventually with a supercharged version of the 3.0-liter engine making as much as 350-hp. Both diesel and hybrid options are likely too.
We won’t know for sure until much closer to the baby Cayenne’s launch which is expected in 2013 as a 2014 model year vehicle.
