Finally, here’s the Mansory that we all know and love. Aggressive styling, loads of carbon fiber and a statement-making piece of machinery. Porsche’s 2011 redesigned Cayenne is Mansory’s newest subject and we are more than happy to grant it our seal of approval. Every aspect of the 2011 Porsche Cayenne has been overhauled by Mansory, converting the Cayenne Turbo to a real street machine, pumping out 690-hp (compared to 500-hp stock).
Nobody likes taxes, but just like a fat refund check, Chinese taxes on displacement mean that the 2011 Porsche Cayenne V6 will ditch the 3.6L V6 that is available in other world markets, and instead get the 3.0L Supercharged V6 available on the Cayenne Hybrid and the Audi S4.
Porsche has just announced two new entry-level versions of the all-new second-generation Cayenne SUV: a gasoline-powered V6 and a diesel. The gas model makes used of the same direct-injection 3.6-liter V6 as found in the new Panamera model, boasting 300-hp. Offered in Europe with a standard 6-speed manual transmission it can hit 62 mph in 7.5 seconds or 7.8 seconds with a new 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission – likely the standard transmission here in North America.
Porsche enthusiasts were up in arms when the brand launched their Cayenne SUV, but 8 years on, the car truck saved the brand from oblivion, and helped fund new, exciting models like the Panamera and the Boxster Spyder. For 2011, a more capable, more streamlined and less belligerent Cayenne is on its way and pricing has just been announced.
Porsche has just announced that it will debut, for the first time on American soil, the all-new 2011 Cayenne SUV at the New York Auto Show. Several new Cayenne models will be unveiled including the Cayenne S Hybrid, the first hybrid from the legendary sports car maker.
Porsche will not bring a smaller SUV to market fearing it may cannibalize sales of the popular Cayenne. According to a report by AutoCar, Porsche officials have studied the sales numbers for Audi’s Q5 and Q7 and suggest the new Q5 may be stealing away customers from the larger, more expensive SUV. The Cayenne is also a very profitable SUV, representing 50 percent of Porsche’s profits.
Overshadowed by the launch of the 918 Spyder Concept, Porsche’s Geneva Auto Show press conference also marked the debut of the all-new 2011 Cayenne and Cayenne Hybrid. The redesign is a big improvement, giving the capable SUV a more sporty crossover look in keeping with the trend these days. It does, however, retain full SUV capability (not that anyone will use it though).
Porsche is preparing to launch its all-new second-generation Cayenne at the 2010 Geneva Auto Show, but a single image of the SUV has found its way onto the net, courtesy Porsche. That’s right, the above image was mistakenly used on Porsche’s official website, showing the second-gen Cayenne sitting amid the rest of the Porsche lineup. After the story broke, Porsche went back and removed the photo, replacing it with a similar image, but using the current Cayenne GTS. The two models don’t look all the different when examined independently, but take a close look between the two (we’ve included both below) and you’ll immediately notice a big difference.
