Article by Christian Andrei, on October 9, 2014

It’s not a secret that China loves SUVs, especially those made by Porsche. In fact, China may soon replace the United States as Porsche’s largest market and this could happed as soon as this year. In September, Porsche sold 4,344 vehicles in China in September, while in the United States only 3,607 vehicles left the showrooms. Still, in the first nine months of this year, Porsche sold 35,292 vehicles in China, while the United States sold 35,355 units.

This means that U.S. leads the “competition” with 3,000 units but China is growing fast thanks to the Cayenne. Global sales of Porsche increased by 22 percent in September, to 15,828 vehicles and by 13 percent to 135,652 units through September. Back in July, the Cayenne received a facelift for the 2015MY, which could increase sales even further.

The vehicle received a new design that includes new bi-xenon headlights with four-point LED daytime running lights as standard, new front wings and bonnet as well as new airblades. At the rear, the Cayenne received new taillights and automatically activating boot lid as standard.

Inside, there is a new multifunction sport steering wheel with shift paddles offered as standard. In Germany, the 2015 Cayenne Facelift is available starting October 11 and the Cayenne Diesel starts at 66,260 euros, while the Cayenne S costs 80,183 euros.

The 2015 Cayenne S Diesel costs 82,087 euros and the Cayenne Turbo is priced at 128,378 euros. In the 2015 Cayenne Diesel costs $61,700, the Cayenne S is priced from $74,100 while the Cayenne Turbo is priced from $113,600.
