Report: 2014 Porsche Cajun will be offered only in a three-door configuration

Article by Christian A., on June 16, 2011

Porsche sees the dilemma being faced by the various auto segments as SUV owners want both luxury and sportiness while hatchback owners like getting more space as well as the jacked-up feel of driving a crossover. This is why Porsche is offering the Cajun in a three-door configuration, which differentiates it from the Audi Q5.

Porsche may still be known for its sportscars but it will follow a move by Land Rover with its Evoque to develop both three- and five-door bodystyles.

The Cajun is lower, shorter, and wider than the Q5. The styling of the interior of the baby Cayenne is inspired by the Panamera. It will get a wide central spine that will carry all the knobs and switches.

Porsche still wants its SUV line to be sporty so the new crossover will receive an instrument cluster that takes cues from two-door models.

A Sport Chrono package gets the usual launch control and stopwatch that’s useful for the track. It will be powered by a new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel that Audi is working on for the revamped version of the Q5 that’s scheduled to debut in 2012.

The unit will be offered with various phases of tune. It’s believed to deliver up to 300hp. To have a better chance at going up against the Range Rover Evoque in terms of economy, the Cajun will be available with a 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder.

As the Cayenne and Panamera both have an incredibly fuel-efficient version, the Q5’s hybrid powerplant is expected to be used. However, it’s also possible that a new one will be made.
