Snapped! Next Cayenne

2009-07-31 10:14
The next Porsche Cayenne has again been spotted out testing, and this time with a lot less camouflage…

With new Cayenne, Porsche sticks to its evolutionary styling philosophy although the new model's overall features appear much sleeker. The SUV will reportedly also have a stronger urban focus and should lose some of its more bulky trimmings.

One of the photographers caught a quick glimpse of the interior and reported that the cabin is heavily influenced by the new Panamera sports sedan.

New Cayenne will source its power from a host of petrol, turbodiesel and hybrid engines.

Cayenne S will probably be powered by the 294-kW 4.8-litre V8 while the range-topping Cayenne Turbo will be fitted with the 368-kW 4.8-litre twin-turbo. Both engines are used in the Panamera range.

A V6 TDI sourced from the VW Group is likely to power the turbodiesel models.

And since the hybrid Cayenne is only expected to debut in 2010, this powertrain should be virtually unchanged when it is carried over to the new model in 2011.

The hybrid is powered by Audi's potent supercharged 3.0-litre V6 mill, with 213 kW on tap, that is connected to a three-phase synchronous electric motor.
