Porsche has long dominated the performance and luxury sports car scene, but an automaker’s core values do not necessarily preclude it from producing high-performing and beautifully designed SUVs. 

The German firm has finally acknowledged this trend by unveiling a revised Cayenne model, intended to restore the brand’s image in the SUV segment.

The competition

Porsche has overhauled its renowned flagship SUV to counteract waning sales and stiff competition from the likes of BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi. 

While previous iterations of the German manufacturer’s Cayenne had been met with criticism among enthusiasts who preferred its other production models, the introduction of new engines, wheels, interiors, and technologies played a crucial role in redefining the luxury sports utility vehicle segment.

This new generation of Cayenne is more aggressively styled than previous models but also aerodynamically optimized and even more technology-packed than before.


New Avatar

The new Cayenne SUV boasts a fresh body and vastly improved performance. To be launched in 2024, the third-generation model is built atop a newly-optimized chassis with a new PASM-backed two-valve suspension,20″ wheels, keyless entry, lane-keep assist, onboard wireless charging with onboard cabin air quality system and LED Matrix headlights.

The revised high-end SUV will have an all-new exterior, interior, and available upgrades, while new body styles will also be offered. The new interior has a 2.6″ instrument cluster supported by a central 12.3″ infotainment display.

Multiple trims

What’s more, the lineup now has solid assists and driver aids. We will also see multiple trims for the 2024 lineup having amended powertrains.

Like the top variant Cayenne Turbo GT comes equipped with a 650-hp twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 motor that makes a 3.1-second 0-60 time and a 189-mph top speed. 

It also has Dynamic Chassis Control, Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes, rear-axle steering, GT 22-inch design wheels as standard, and sports exhaust supported by titanium tailpipes.



While the Cayenne E-Hybrid arrives with a new 463-hp hybrid six-cylinder motor replaced by the Cayenne S’ V6 engine, a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 making 468hp and 442ft-lbs of torque allowing the SUV to achieve 0-60 time in just 4.4-second and having a 169-mph top speed (with the Sport Chrono package).

For the standard model, the price starts from $79,200.
