About Porsche Cayenne

Porsche raised the public’s collective eyebrow when it decided to enter the sport-utility vehicle business in 2003 with its bulbous Cayenne. However, despite the grumblings of purists, this midsize luxury SUV has proven itself worthy of the vaunted Porsche name over the course of two generations.

With a lineup that stretches from the $40Ks to six-digit territory and engines that range from a hybrid V6 to a twin-turbo V8, the Porsche Cayenne isn’t your typical midsize SUV. Nor is it the most practical or family-friendly. Indeed, the Cayenne’s relatively small cargo area, high load floor and lack of a third-row seat option limit its real-world functionality.

But in terms of spirited driving, there are few better. Thanks to its all-wheel-drive system, razor-sharp steering and superb brakes, the Porsche Cayenne demonstrates surprising dexterity around corners. The current car isn’t quite as adept off-road as the original Cayenne, but we can’t imagine many people will care.

Be it new or used, the Cayenne is one of the best luxury SUVs you can get.

Current Porsche Cayenne

The Porsche Cayenne is a five-seat midsize luxury SUV with a number of different trims that correspond to its engine. The base Cayenne features a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 300 horsepower. All-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission are standard.

An eight-speed automatic is optional with the V6 and standard on everything else. Stepping up to the Cayenne S gets you a 4.8-liter V8 that gets the party really started with 400 horses. Porsche apparently likes working in 100-hp increments since the Cayenne Turbo produces 500 hp and consequently delivers incredible performance (the Power Kit ups it to 540 hp).

Should you care less about performance and more about fuel economy, the Cayenne S Hybrid produces 380 hp, but returns better fuel economy than the base, gas-only V6.

You’d never describe the Cayenne as sporting in the traditional Porsche sports car sense, but it’s impressive by SUV standards. The steering deserves praise for its linearity, making it easy to place this 4,500-pound vehicle on the road. Body roll is well contained and the Cayenne can be hustled along with something approaching gusto, helped by an all-wheel-drive system that delivers 60 percent of its thrust to the rear wheels under normal conditions. The optional active suspension system provides a supple ride even with the dampers in their most aggressive setting.

As a result, the Cayenne is an excellent candidate for long-distance driving.

The cabin features an aggressive, cockpit-style layout reminiscent of the Porsche Panamera. The center console, adorned in upwards of 50 buttons, rises sharply to meet the dash and large touchscreen display, creating an enveloping driver’s environment. Like other Porsches, the Cayenne features the finest interior materials, put together with excellent craftsmanship. The front seats are available in three different designs, ranging from simple eight-way power adjustment to 18-way sport seats, which feature adjustable bolsters, lumbar and seat cushion length.

The sculpted rear seats not only recline but slide fore and aft as well, which is a feature not typically found in five-passenger luxury SUVs.

As always, the Cayenne is quite pricey — especially when you start sampling from Porsche’s extensive options list. It also doesn’t offer much in the way of cargo capacity. However, if you’re looking for a luxury SUV, a performance-tuned SUV or a combination of both, it’s tough to beat the Cayenne.

Used Porsche Cayenne Models

The current Porsche Cayenne was introduced for 2011. It may look smaller than the SUV it replaced, but this is actually an optical illusion inspired by the Cayenne’s lower nose and raked D-pillar. In reality, this Cayenne is fractionally longer, wider and taller.

Pleasingly, though, it’s about 400 pounds lighter thanks to the deletion of its former dual-range transfer case (meant to permit serious off-roading) and the use of lightweight body panels. Besides this trip to Jenny Craig, the second-generation Cayenne benefits from sharper driving reflexes, invigorated engines and a new interior with better materials and more luxury features.

The original Porsche Cayenne was produced from 2003-’10. Even though this Cayenne looks bigger than the current car, it’s actually a hair smaller. It is heavier, however, largely thanks to its sophisticated all-wheel-drive system, set up (somewhat ironically) for off-road use and including high- and low-range gearing.

As with today, though, this Cayenne was all about on-road performance and was considered one of the best-handling SUVs of its time — not to mention one of the fastest in S and Turbo guises.

Inside, the driver sat high above traffic in comfortable bucket seats and faced a three-spoke steering wheel and a center-mounted tachometer that paid homage to Porsche’s sports cars. The ignition was even mounted on the left side of the dash. Materials quality was superb throughout the cabin, but its many electronics controls could be difficult to use.

It wasn’t the most spacious midsize SUV either, lacking the cargo and rear seat space of some similarly priced competitors.

Originally, there were only Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo styles. The S model’s 4.5-liter V8 produced 340 hp, while the turbocharged version of the same engine pumped out 450 horses. A six-speed automatic transmission was standard.

The 247-hp 3.2-liter V6 base model arrived in 2004, while its standard transmission became a six-speed manual for 2005 (the rest of the Cayenne line stuck with the auto). That year also saw the addition of a few options, such as a panoramic sunroof and a special Turbo Power Kit that boosted output to 500 hp and upgraded the brakes. For 2006, the range-topping Cayenne Turbo S debuted, producing a monstrous 520 hp that was said to bring the Cayenne to 60 mph as quickly as the contemporary 911.

The Cayenne was not produced for model year 2007. The following year saw major changes made to Porsche’s SUV. The styling was given a welcome face-lift, the suspension was revised for sharper handling and every engine gained more power. The base V6 now produced 290 hp, the Cayenne S 385 hp and the Turbo a standard 500 hp.

The Turbo S was put on hiatus. The Cayenne GTS model also arrived for ’08, featuring a 405-hp version of the S model’s V8 along with a six-speed manual transmission, 21-inch wheels, an active air suspension and a lower ride height. The Turbo S made its return for 2009 packing 550 hp.

Mysterious Porsche 911 Cabriolet spied, could be GTS

Mon, 10 Mar 2014 19:29:00 EST

While Porsche’s designers can jokingly be accused of being some of the laziest in the industry due to the incremental changes to the 911’s iconic design, no such charge can be leveled against the engineers and product planning folks. That’s because it seems like each week arrives with news of a new variation of the marque’s iconic rear-engined sports car. So, for this week, we’ve brought you images of what we think is the new 911 GTS Cabriolet, undergoing testing in a thawing winter wonderland.

Now, what is it that gives this 911 away, compared to standard convertible? Well, the big thing is the new offset, center-mounted exhausts. Borrowing a page from the last Volkswagen R32, these exhaust tips are unlike anything we’ve seen from Porsche. Only the GT3 wears center pipes, and unlike these spy photos, the twin pipes on the track-minded 911 are stacked neatly alongside each other.

The other change spotted by our spies is the set of active-aerodynamic flaps in the front bumper, which can automatically channel air toward the brakes for increased cooling, or close off to reduce drag, as needed.

World Car of the Year finalists announced

Fri, 07 Mar 2014 18:59:00 EST

To say the 2014 Geneva Motor Show was packed full of news is an understatement as big as the show’s home at the Palexpo convention center. Despite everything that we were able to cover during this year’s show, there’s still more coming out of Switzerland, including the announcement of the finalists for the 2014 World Car of the Year Awards.

We reported on the original list of finalists over three weeks ago, and now, that initial list has been pared down to three finalists for each of the five awards. The finalists were announced at a press conference by frequent Autoblog contributor and co-chair of the awards, Matt Davis (above).


The finalists for the overall title of 2014 World Car of the Year are the Audi A3, the BMW 4 Series and the Mazda3. The World Luxury Car of the Year will be either the Bentley Flying Spur, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class or the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, while the Performance Car of the Year will be awarded to the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, the Ferrari 458 Speciale or the Porsche 911 GT3 (which, um, yeah. ).

The 2014 Ruf RCT offers rear-drive action with 911 Turbo fun

Wed, 05 Mar 2014 19:21:00 EST

Ruf has 37 years of experience of turning Porsches into even higher performance machines. For the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, it’s unveiling the RCT, or Ruf Carrera Turbo, which offers power to split the difference between Porsche’s 911 Turbo and Turbo S models.

The RCT starts with a unique body kit with a new front air dam and drastically changed rear deck that combines both a small spoiler and air intake. Power is provided by a twin-turbocharged, 3.8-liter flat-six with 525 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque paired to either a seven-speed manual or seven-speed dual clutch transmission. That gives the Ruf a 5-hp and 15-lb-ft advantage over Porsche’s own Turbo but is still less powerful than the full Turbo S. The RCT sprints to 62 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds and to a top speed of 196 mph.

However, the Ruf’s big advantage is that it offers buyers the choice of either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, while Stuttgart’s turbo models are only available spinning all four wheels. The RCT can also offers upgrades like an integrated roll cage and custom suspension packages, should the buyer be so inclined to splash out on racing kit.

Techart modified Porsche 911 Turbo S packs 620 hp, 0-62 in 2.8 seconds

Wed, 05 Mar 2014 13:03:00 EST

Considering how many absolutely ridiculous tuner cars are featured in Geneva (stay tuned to see plenty, as our coverage continues), it’s often refreshing to see some of the more modestly modified cars, like this new Porsche 911 Turbo S from the folks at Techart. Visually, there’s a subtle body kit, new wheels, a new spoiler, and some lame decals on the front end, but it basically ends there. That’s because Techart’s mission is really about higher performance.

Increased dynamism, as the Germans say.

An ordinary 911 Turbo S produces 560 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. But the Techart kit adds 60 hp and 96 lb-ft to those already high numbers, for a coupe that dishes out a total of 620 hp and 612 lb-ft. Techart says that, in Sport Plus mode, its modified 911 Turbo S will accelerate to 62 miles per hour in just 2.8 seconds, and the top speed has been increased to 204 miles per hour.

Crazy stuff.

To further drive its performance upgrades home, Techart has fitted this 911 Turbo S with a sport exhaust system with valve control, for a more robust exit interview, at the push of a button. We imagine it sounds awesome. Have a look at the Techart Turbo S in the gallery, above.

Porsche 911 RSR stops just long enough to have its photo taken

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 12:01:00 EST

When it comes to Porsche and its rapidly escalating endurance racing program, all eyes may be on the new 919 Hybrid — and with good reason: that’s the vehicle with which Porsche will be challenging the likes of Audi and Toyota for wins in the top-tier LMP1 class of the FIA World Endurance Championship and at Le Mans. But it’s the 911 RSR that does and will continue to form the backbone of the factory’s effort.

The 470-horsepower racing version of the road-going 911 took a one-two finish in its class at Le Mans last year, and also won its class at the Daytona 24 this past January as well. This year Porsche will field two of them in the WEC, another two in the United SportsCar Championship here in the US and will sell countless more to customer racing teams that will undoubtedly continue to rack up trophies in racing series around the world. This, then, might be a unique chance to see one standing still.

Porsche 919 Hybrid revives Porsche’s factory Le Mans efforts

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 07:30:00 EST

After months of teasing with camouflaged testers, Porsche has finally unveiled its prototype entry for the 2014 World Endurance Championship, the 919 Hybrid. Porsche, you may recall, hasn’t had campaigned a factory team at Le Mans in years, so the 919 is nothing less than their recommitment to endurance racing.

Combining a 2.0-liter V4 (yes, a V4) that revs to 9,000 rpm, the 919 produces around 500 horsepower with a pair of energy recovery systems. The first system recovers the heat energy from exhaust gasses as they pass through an electrical generator, while the second system is a bit more familiar. Using a setup similar to what is found on the production 918 Spyder, a generator on the front axle recovers kinetic energy from the brakes, which is subsequently stored in a battery system.

That power can then be sent to the front wheels at the driver’s command, effectively turning the 919 into an all-wheel-drive racecar.

Despite these various forms of motivation, Porsche doesn’t claim to be seeking outright power supremacy, with Chairman Matthias Müller saying, In 2014, it will not be the fastest car that wins the World Endurance Championship series and the 24 hours of Le Mans, rather it will be the car that goes the furthest with a defined amount of energy. And it is precisely this challenge that carmakers must overcome. The 919 Hybrid is our fastest mobile research laboratory and the most complex race car that Porsche has ever built.

Porsche 911 Targa Turbo for Geneva debunked, 919 Hybrid and 911 RSR racers coming instead

Fri, 28 Feb 2014 10:01:00 EST

Porsche has proven adept at making sure there is a version of its venerable 911 for practically any wealthy driver’s desires. If you just want a great all-rounder then buy a standard 911; open-air driving, then the Cabriolet is for you, and if you need a compromise between them, there is even the new 911 Targa.

Gossip earlier this week surfaced on various websites that at next week’s Geneva Motor Show, Porsche had designs on introducing an even higher-performance Targa variant, a Targa Turbo. The rumored mashup would combine the wide body from the 911 Turbo with the super-complicated power roof from the Targa (see right). Assuming no changes in power, that would mean 520 horsepower or even 560 hp in a Targa Turbo S model. Unfortunately, we’re hearing that this tasty bit of scuttlebutt is incorrect.

Autoblog asked Nick Twork, Porsche North America Product Communications Manager, about the rumor, and his response couldn’t have been clearer: Totally false.

Twork did elaborate that company will be debuting the Porsche 919 Hybrid, our new LMP1 race car at the Swiss show, and Stuttgart has also announced this morning that will show its 911 RSR racecar, too — either of which we reckon is a lot more exciting than another Targa variant.

Porsche’s Mauer recalls the history of the 918 Spyder, hints about next-gen 911

Wed, 26 Feb 2014 14:59:00 EST

The night before Porsche handed me the keys to its 2015 Macan to drive on both road and track, the company threw together a great dinner for the assembled media in Leipzig. Hosted in Porsche’s spaceship-shaped customer delivery center in the eastern German town, I’ll admit that I spent the bulk of my night grabbing hors d’oeuvres from passing waiters (they do a nice tuna sashimi), milling around a collection of historic and interesting vehicles on the top floor and gulping down Warsteiner.

In an era of mega car companies, the story of how the 918 came to be was really refreshing.

2015 Porsche Macan Turbo

Mon, 24 Feb 2014 11:57:00 EST

I knew it was a softball question, but I asked it anyway. It’s pretty standard for automakers to offer up some examples of competitors when they invite the media to drive a new vehicle for the first time. If not stated outright, it’s just as standard for some journalist to query about the competitive set as soon as the QA begins.

I knew full well that Porsche believes it has a valuable new niche to itself with the 2015 Macan (and especially with the Macan Turbo), but I wanted to hear the answer to the competitor cars question anyway.

Porsche CEO Matthias Müller didn’t hesitate for a second to respond. With a half-smirk appropriate to an executive that is about to launch the (very probably) most profitable and best-selling product in his brand’s lineup he chuckled, Of course, I could be arrogant and say this car has no competitors.

Porsche tells 2014 911 GT3 owners to park their cars pending inspection

Porsche may have have a serious problem on its hands. After a rumored five 2014 911 GT3 coupes caught fire in recent weeks, Porsche launched an investigation and stopped delivering its road-ready racecar until it could diagnose the problem. Now, it has issued a press release asking all 2014 911 GT3 owners to immediately stop driving their cars until they can be inspected.

Porsche is offering to pick up the cars from owners’ homes and take them to the nearest dealer.

Porsche confirms that the at least two 911 GT3 coupes them have caught fire in Europe, and it has elected to inspect all 785 2014 GT3s worldwide. However, it claims no drivers have been injured in the fires. Unfortunately, Porsche says, Internal studies to determine the cause of the engine damage have not been completed yet, so owners might have a bit of a wait before they are able to drive Porsche’s ultimate 911 again.
