Porsche Cajun will be sold initially as a two-door, will take on Evoque

Article by Christian A., on October 11, 2010

It’s not a secret anymore that Porsche will introduce a smaller Cayenne on the market dubbed Cajun. Set to make its debut in 2014, the new car will be the first Porsche designed by Volkswagen Group design director Walter de' Silva.

"The Cajun will be the first new Porsche created under my influence.” said de Silva in an interview with AutoBild.

The new car will be based on the Audi Q5, but it will have a shorter wheelbase as well as a lower roofline than the Q5, and will cost between 5 percent and 10 percent more.

What is really interesting is that Porsche will prevent the Cajun stealing sales from the Audi Q5 and the larger Porsche Cayenne. How? Well, Porsche Cajun will be sold initially as a two-door like a potential rival, the 2012 Range Rover Evoque.

The Cajun, which is set to make its debut by 2014, is part of Porsche plans to expand its our-model lineup to double unit sales in the medium term to 150,000.

Besides the Cajun, Porsche will also introduce a so-called baby Boxster that is expected to go on sale in 2013. The smaller Boxster will be based on the Vw BlueSport Concept, introduced last year at the Detroit Auto Shiw.
