2011 Porsche Cayenne officially revealed… kind of!

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

While prototypes of the 2011 Porsche Cayenne were spotted in Germany several times, this is the first time that an undisguised image of the new SUV was captured.

This image was accidentally released early on the configurator of Porsche's official website. This image has since been removed but a screen shot had already been saved and distributed everywhere on the net.

The SUV will debut at the upcoming Geneva show and is set to go on sale in May. Previously, Porsche had released a teaser of the new Cayenne hidden in the background of an image of the 911 GT3 R Hybrid race car.

Three engine options will be offered for the 2011 Porsche Cayenne: an entry-level 3.6-liter V-6 with 300 horsepower, a naturally aspirated 4.8-liter V-8 with 400 horsepower in the Cayenne S and a range-topping twin-turbocharged 4.8-liter V-8 with 500 horsepower in the Cayenne Turbo. Expect the Cayenne Diesel to return; this time though, it will pack a new 240 horsepower 3.9-liter V-6 turbodiesel engine.

This eco-friendlier Cayenne will be joined by the Cayenne S Hybrid, which will merge a supercharged 330 horsepower 3.0-liter gasoline V-6 with a 47 horsepower electric motor running on lithium-ion batteries.

There are no plans to sell the diesel or the hybrid in the U.S. anytime soon. Overseas customers have all the luck as the models that will arrive on their shores will benefit from a fuel-saving engine stop-start system.

Cayenne will be a strictly on-road vehicle. Each Cayenne will be offered with an 8-speed automatic transmission as standard but a low-speed transfer case will no longer be offered.
