Porsche Cayenne

Porsche Cayenne

The Porsche Cayenne is a five-seat mid-size sport utility vehicle manufactured by the German automaker Porsche since 2002, with North American sales beginning in 2003. It is the first V8 engined vehicle built by Porsche since 1995, when the Porsche 928 was discontinued.

Porsche intended the Cayenne to be the new benchmark for SUVs. The Cayenne's frame and doors are sourced from Volkswagen, who also use the frames and doors for the Volkswagen Touareg model. All other aspects of vehicle design, tuning, production are done in house at Porsche.

Cayenne (Base Model)

Its Volkswagen-sourced 3.6-liter VR6 is massaged by Porsche to create more power for use in their base model Cayenne. The engine delivers 290 hp (220 kW) and modifications in the exhaust manifold allow it to peak at 6700 rpm. The 2008 Cayenne V6 will start at about $45,000, making it the lowest priced Porsche available.

Cayenne S

This has a normally aspirated 8-cylinder engine with an unusually high 12.5:1 compression ratio. A dry-sump lubrication system improves efficiency, while Porsche's VarioCam Plus variable timing extends the power band. The Cayenne S' 4.8-liter V8 produces some 385 hp (287 kW) and 369 ft·lbf (500 N·m) of torque, good for a 6.4 second time from 0-100 km/h and a top speed of 249 km/h.

Cayenne GTS

Comes with a revised 405 horsepower (302 kW) 4.8-liter V8 good for a 0-60 mph time of less than 6 seconds, a new sport suspension and 21-inch (530 mm) wheels. It slots between the Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo, will also be lighter than the Cayenne S, and wear a new aerodynamic body kit. Its unique feature is a second row of bucket seats instead of the Cayenne's standard bench. This will also be the first V-8 Cayenne to offer a six-speed manual transmission in addition to the standard Tiptronic.

Cayenne Turbo S

Porsche released the details of the new Cayenne Turbo S at the 2008 Beijing auto show. It will have an extra 50 hp, raising the total horsepower to 550, which lowers its 0-100 km/h time to a mere 4.7 seconds. It's distinguished by standard 21 inch Sport Plus alloy wheels and, for the first time in the Cayenne line, optional Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes that measure a whopping 40.64 cm in front and 36.83 cm in back.
