Audi will develop the next-generation Porsche Cayenne, report says

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 10, 2010

According to the latest reports from Automotive News, it appears that Audi will develop the next generation Porsche Cayenne, Vw Touareg and Audi Q7 SUVs, in the furutre.

For those who don’t know, Porsche has currently the responsibility for engineering the three models, but it appears that the decision to transfer the development to Audi was taken after Porsche was chosen to lead the development of large luxury sedans and sports cars within VW group.

"This decision was made in agreement with all of the brands involved and will create synergies throughout the group to the benefit of both the brand and the customers," said an Audi spokesman, who confirmed the decision.

Furthermore, Audi will also develop the new Porsche small SUV dubbed Cajun, which will be based on the Audi Q5. This decision is also expected to end a conflict over development responsibilities between the Audi and Porsche brands.

Apparently, this conflict started when Vw announced that wants to integrate as its 10th brand. Regarding the next-generation Cayenne, don’t expect this model too soon, as the new generation made its debut in March, at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.

Still, the new Audi Q7 is due to go on sale in two years, and according to our sources the development is almost complete. [via autonews - sub. required]
