Porsche Cajun Gets Green Light, On Sale in 2013


Porsche has confirmed the Cajun compact crossover will head into production, hitting the market in 2013. The news comes as part of an announcement by the German automaker that it has selected its Leipzig plant to assemble the new vehicle alongside the Cayenne and Panamera.

Also of note, Porsche uses the ‘Cajun’ name in its official press release, suggesting that will be the official title given to what will no doubt be the most performance-oriented crossover in its segment.

Based on the same underpinnings as the Audi Q5, reports have suggested the car will be powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine making 300-hp.
