The Cayenne concept

There’s no greater moment than when you surpass yourself.

The Cayenne concept.

We start families. We build houses. We climb mountains. We’ve hardly achieved one goal and the next one is already waiting for us. Can’t we just stop for a moment?
No, we can’t. Nor do we want to. After all, for us, something is only good enough when we’ve made it even better. Why? Because we are enthusiasts. Because we enjoy accelerating froma standing start-and creating moments full of exhilaration from everyday life.
What does this have to do with cars? Nothing. But it has everything to do with sports cars. You cannot build a sports car without enthusiasm. Nor can you drive one.
What we want to do more than anything else is drive. With plenty of passion. A vehicle that handles the daily commute as supremely as it does the Corkscrew at Laguna Seca, and one that enjoys the short sprint as much as the long distance. One that is designed for the whole family -and yet for us alone. And one that is one thing above all else: a Porsche.

Dynamic performance, five doors, variability, comfort. The Cayenne SUV continues on its path of success. With a new design, new driver-assistance systems, new drive components, and a higher output, yet comparatively low fuel consumption. Having reinvented itself, the Cayenne continues to forge ahead. Straight into the future.
It’s actually all about that one moment when you turn the key in the ignition. And what that triggers in you.
The Cayenne. Enthusiast driven.


Enthusiasm comes in many forms. But it only has one face.

Exterior design.

Many people dedicate themselves to moving forward, but few leave their mark. Many are full of enthusiasm, but few inspire it in others. How do you recognize the few? Sometimes at first glance.
The prowess of the Cayenne SUV is clearly reflected in the design: the frot and rear sections have been completely revised. They are now sharper and even more sophisticated. The new hood, new front quarter panel, new headlights, and modified air intakes lend the car even greater presence. It is more athletic, and muscular than ever before.

The precisely contoured sides make it clear that this is a sports car with character and stature. The new exterior mirrors with integrated indicators and wheels in a range of sizes up to 21 inches-with new attractive styling serve to emphasize the car’s dynamics.
An impression that is confirmed by a number of other new details, including daytime running lights featuring four LED spotlights fitted as standard, as well as new LED taillights and integrated tailpipes.
Every detail has been used to highlight what matters most to you: the sporting credibility that only a Porsche can offer. That is our design DNA. The result is clear: distinctive appeal. The Cayenne gives the term enthusiasm a face.

Race-inspired, stylish and high quality: plenty of room for great emotions.

Interior design.

When you take the wheel of a Porsche, you are not just a driver. You are part of something bigger. Part of an overallI concept. An idea. One that has its roots in auto racing. This is where we learned how important it is to bring the car and driver together as closely as possible. That’s why the interior of the Cayenne SUV is virtually built around you. Everything you need is within easy reach. Practical and exclusively designed to suit your needs.
A typical sports car feature, the rising center console reduces the distance between the steering wheel and the most important vehicle controls. The new multifunction sports steering wheel also speaks the language of motorsports.

Derived from the 918 Spyder, it is a harmonious blend of high-level ergonomics and pioneering styling.
However, the Cayenne concept goes beyond pure sports performance. It also offers comfort, variability, and style. Every individual detail serves to enhance the overall impression. This is our proven design concept.

Sometimes a single look says it all

The Cayenne Turbo.

Porsche. Cayenne. Turbo. That’s really all you need to set your pulse racing. Uncompromising athleticism combined with superior handling, and a passion for the road.
This is all perfectly embodied by the Cayenne Turbo, a high-performance athlete with turbo-powered performance. The car’s exterior design clearly shows what lies within: broad-shouldered, purposeful, and agile. The distinctive front section and large air intakes are striking features that reflect the car’s strength and character.

Can we add to this? Yes, with an ‘S. The Cayenne Turbo S is the ultimate powerhouse in the Cayenne family. It represents the sum of all ideas that make up the fascinating appeal of the Cayenne. Put simply: even higher levels of performance and exclusivity. Selected materials wherever you look and feel, from leather and a range of fine woods to carbon. Elegant and sophisticated. Interior equipment taken to new heights.
This is the most powerful Cayenne model. With a breathtaking output of 570 horsepower. Adrenaline in its purest form.
