Porsche‘s hard at work on their new Cajun, a smaller sibling to its popular Cayenne SUV, based on Audi‘s Q5 platform. The Cajun mule was recently spotted out testing in Northern Sweden, revealing little about its design.
What it does reveal is that Porsche plans to have a wider body than the Q5, noted by the black fender flares spotted on the test mule. Porsche will also surely fine tune the chassis and outfit the Cajun with bigger brakes, wheels and tires. And while the powerplants will come from Audi, Porsche is undoubtedly play with them a tad in order to give it more power output than the Q5 counterparts, as well as be more in-line with what Porsche’s all about – performance.
We can probably expect a hybrid Cajun with Audi’s 2.0L TFSI powerplant with 210-hp combined with a 44-hp electric motor. As of now, the Cajun will be produced in 4-door form but rumor has it that we can expect a sportier coupe version down the line.
