Pop-up store: Inside a crystal dome at the top of the French Alps is a Porsche Cayenne

If you are currently on a ski trip at Méribel, a town in the French Alps, you might want to take some time away from the slopes to check out Porsche’s newest pop-up store. As you could see in the photos, it is a Porsche Cayenne displayed inside a crystal dome. The German brand claims that this is their highest ever pop up store, at the top of the French Alps, with an altitude of 7,546 feet (2,300 metres).

If you aren’t too tired from skiing, you might want to head there and schedule a test drive in the Cayenne. The automaker has even set up what they call a Fun Zone in Val d’Isère that lets drivers experience the new SUV through a downhill segment, as well as through a snow-covered off road obstacle course.

As you can imagine, it was definitely not an easy task for the automaker to bring the Cayenne to the French Alps, and it definitely required a lot of effort and some smart thinking. The display alone, weighing 6,614 pounds (3 metric tonnes), had to be flown by the Hélicoptères de France. And for the Cayenne, it had the help of several snowmobiles to get to where it is now.

Porsche will decide fate of coupe and EV versions of Macan and Cayenne in 2018

Porsche has been making a killing in terms of sales with its two luxury sports utility vehicles, the compact Macan and the midsize Cayenne. While Porsche is known for its high-performance sports cars, its two SUVs have been outselling its other offerings combined. But perhaps time is already ripe for the German sports car maker to offer full-electric and coupe versions of the Macan and Cayenne. Porsche will decide on that matter next year.

In an interview with Automotive News during the recently held 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, Porsche chief executive Oliver Blume made it clear that the company’s first all-electric vehicle – based on the Porsche Mission E Concept sedan unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show – won’t be the company’s last project in electro-mobility. Thus, in line with its plans, the German sports car maker will be announcing its second electro-mobility project in the first half of 2018.

Blume quipped that the company needs to check first whether a Porsche SUV would make sense as its next electro-mobility project. This all-electric SUV could be an EV version of the Porsche Macan, as hinted by executives at the carmaker. The chances that the Macan or the Cayenne SUVs would be the Porsche’s next electro-mobility are high, considering that SUVs are its best-sellers. It would further diversify Porsche’s offerings without having to create a completely different vehicle. With the production version of the Mission E set to arrive in 2019, the EV variant of the Macan or Cayenne is anticipated to come shortly after that.

2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo offers more power, active aerodynamics and better brakes

Around two weeks after Porsche unveiled the third generation of the Porsche Cayenne in Stuttgart, Germany, the sports car maker has taken the wraps off the turbo version of the sporty mid-sized SUV around 140 miles to the north in Frankfurt – the new 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

Simply speaking, the new generation of the Cayenne Turbo is Porsche’s mid-sized SUV on steroids. Compared to the next-gen Cayenne and Cayenne that were recently unveiled, the Cayenne Turbo represents a big boost in power. The 2019 Cayenne is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine delivering 340 horsepower of max output and 332 pound-feet of torque, allowing the base Porsche mid-size SUV to sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds.

The Cayenne S, meanwhile, employs a bi-turbo 2.9-liter V6 mill delivering up to 440 hp of output and up to 406 lb.-ft. of torque – good for a 0-100 km/h dash of 4.9 seconds. Top speeds for the next-gen Cayenne and Cayenne S are at 152 mph and 165 mph, respectively.

2019 Porsche Cayenne is unwrapped in Germany

On August 29, Porsche finally revealed the 2019 Cayenne in Germany, as the third generation of the SUV. This time, it comes with a facelift, more cabin space, and a lower curb weight.

The Cayenne was first introduced in 2002, and since then, around 760,000 units have been sold worldwide, making it one of the most important cars in the company. Around 500,000 of the examples sold are of the second-generation model.

With all the new features, expect the 2019 Cayenne to start at $65,700 and the Cayenne S at $82,900. Both variants are expected to have a $5,000 increase from the outgoing model. Customers can expect to see them in showrooms by mid-2018.

The 2018 Porsche Cayenne made an appearance sooner than we expected to see it. This is because photos of the SUV have been leaked online by AutoExpress. The leaked images show both the interior and the exterior of the SUV, and you can clearly tell that the design has been updated from its predecessor, as seen on spy shots and teasers before it.

The front part of the 2018 Cayenne does not get a major facelift, but the center grille has been made larger instead and are surrounded by two smaller vents on both sides. The side profile, on the other hand, still looks the same from sketches we have seen before. But this time, the SUV will be riding on a new set of wheels.

What sets the 2018 Cayenne apart from its predecessor is that the rear that has been completely upgraded, now with a sleek light bar like the Panamera that replaces the bulky tail lights from the outgoing model. It seems to be following other Porsche models like the 911 and the Macan. It also gets a more pronounced rear spoiler that looks good. What remains from the outgoing model is the rectangular exhaust tips of the lower-level trim, while the higher trims should get a quad exhaust setup.

It’s only days before Porsche finally and officially reveals the latest generation of its Porsche Cayenne sports utility vehicle, and yet the German sports car maker is still teasing the upcoming offering through a number of images and a video.

The recently released sketched images essentially show the elegantly sporty silhouette of the third generation of the Porsche Cayenne. The images basically reveal a low-profile yet sleek front section, thereby making the Cayenne visually connected to its sports car siblings. In addition, the images reveal a sportier rear end. Here, the Cayenne features a raked rear window as well as slender taillights, which have recently been found on other new vehicles like the Panamera and Macan.

On the other hand, the teaser video released alongside the sketched images show a walkthrough at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, Germany. The teaser video basically tells that the Cayenne, even though an SUV, is an offshoot of Porsche rich history. Then, the teaser goes by highlighting Porsche’s significant production vehicles as well as race cars. The last of these vehicles is the Cayenne, which is covered in dirt. The teaser video ends by announcing the world premiere of the third generation of the Cayenne, which is set on 9 pm (CEST), August 29, 2017. The world premiere of the new-gen Porsche Cayenne will be streamed live straight from the Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen site and in front of the international media.

The newest Porsche Cayenne is scheduled be unwrapped by the end of the month after completing endurance tests worth 2.7 million miles. Since we are just a few weeks away from the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, automakers have been releasing teasers of their IAA-bound vehicles. And for Porsche, it is the 2018 Cayenne, or the third-generation model that was first introduced in 2002. Since the Cayenne was first introduced to the public, the company had delivered over 760,000 units already, this tells us how important this model is for the company’s lineup.

Even before it makes its official debut on August 29, the 2018 Cayenne is already making a lot of noise, with a number of images as well as videos with some interesting content - the fact that it had to endure a series of tests. Overall, pre-production models and prototypes of the SUV went through a total of 4.4 million kilometers (2.7M miles) during test drives in various weather conditions, where temperature ranged from -45 to 50 degrees Celsius (-49 to 122 Fahrenheit). These prototypes also went through virtual simulations and real world testing, which is often the final examination that Porsche does.

Other that those tests, Porsche even gave the 2018 Cayenne extreme tests that are beyond real-life experiences, to really ensure a high level of quality for the production model. By driving across country roads, motorways and city streets, prototypes have covered up to 240,000 kilometers (149,130 miles).

Porsche’s GT division has finally brushed off the rumors that a Cayenne GT or a Macan GT will be added to its current lineup. In a recent interview with Car and Driver, Andreas Preuninger confirmed that neither Porsche’s SUV nor crossover range will get GT2 or GT3 versions made. The Head for Road Car Development has even mentioned the Panamera while explaining how the GTs are built directly on real race car models. That said, unless a Panamera, Macan or a Cayenne gets into racing, there is no reason to anticipate a GT version at all.

Preuninger further noted that a customer purchasing a 911 GT3 is well aware about their products. He also said that a Cayenne or a Macan taking part at the Dakar rally is one thing that hasn’t crossed their minds. If so, Preuninger thinks it could be all up to the Motorsport division whether that type of vehicle should be brought into racing.

From the way we see it, it seems Porsche won’t bank on the GT’s heritage for the sake of building more race car versions of their current lineup. Preuninger believes that using a GT badge on either a Cayenne or a Panamera just to make it more marketable will only compromise the division’s credibility. We think he’s right.

The next generation of the Porsche Cayenne is bound to arrive in the 2018 model year, sending hordes of fans and enthusiasts into bouts of thrill and excitement. But while the current generation of the Porsche Cayenne is now on the verge of ending its life cycle, the frenzy for it hasn’t ended yet. This is because Porsche is introducing to the public two new special editions – the 2017 Porsche Cayenne S Platinum Edition and the 2017 Porsche Cayenne S Diesel Platinum Edition.

The new Porsche Cayenne S Platinum Edition and the new Porsche Cayenne S Diesel Platinum Edition will be the latest addition to the sports car maker’s Platinum Edition portfolio. In April 2016, Porsche launched the Platinum Edition, with the Cayenne Diesel and the Cayenne S E-Hybrid as its first two models. These Platinum Edition models were well-received, and such reception prompted Porsche to add the Cayenne S and Cayenne S Diesel to the lineup.

Considered as the hotter and more powerful version of the Cayenne, the Porsche Cayenne S and its diesel version could be availed – as standard – in black or white exterior finishes as Platinum Edition models. Porsche is also offering five optional exterior colors (metallic paint finishes): Jet Black, Mahogany, Purpurite, Carrara White and Rhodium Silver. While the wheel arch extensions are specified in vehicle color, a number of sporty touches are finished in high-gloss black. The Cayenne S Platinum Edition and the new Cayenne S Diesel Platinum Edition also feature tinted privacy glass at the rear.

Techart has long been known for presenting a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S-based Magnum during the Essen Motor Show. Its bold campaign has not wavered for the 2016 show as the company has showcased a 720 HP Magnum Sport model.

That figure is not just part of the name but is the actual output making this version the most powerful among the world’s premium SUVs. In fact, one can say that it serves as the perfect challenger to the Brabus GLE 850, for example.

The package being offered right now includes components that have been improved with carbon fiber. Examples of these are the headlight trims, rear spoiler, roof spoiler, and trims of the side mirror. Looking closely at the trim of the taillight, one can clearly observe that it has undergone the carbon fiber treatment.

An Egyptian car owner is pursuing a criminal case against a con artist who duped him out of his 2011 Porsche Cayenne. The Cayenne owner met the suspect after the former posted an advertisement online looking for buyers for his 2011 Cayenne, which he priced at Dh200,000.

Just a few hours after posting the advertisement, he was then contacted by the suspect seeking a meeting in order to purchase the car and go through the requisite formalities. The Cayenne owner eventually met with the supposed buyer and an associate.

The Egyptian man noted that the suspect avoided meeting with him personally, staying inside his Ferrari while letting his friend handle the negotiations. Through his friend, the alleged fraud claimed to be part of the ruling family, and was looking for a suitable gift for his wife to replace her lost car.

Besides the all-new 911 (991) Targa 4 GTS, Porsche also revealed at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) the new Cayenne Turbo S, the top model of the sporty SUV model series. The new Cayenne Turbo S uses a 4.8-liter V8 biturbo engine that delivers 570 hp (419 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque.

As a result, it is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds, 0.4 seconds faster than the previous model, while top speed is 280 km/h (176 mph). As you may know already, the Cayenne Turbo S is offered with plenty of standard equipment and the latest version follows the same recipe and offers standard Porsche Composite Ceramic Brakes (PCCB) with 420 mm front brake discs and, for the first time, 10-piston calipers.

The rear brakes have 370 mm discs and four-piston calipers. In addition, Cayenne Turbo S offers the active roll stabilization system, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) and active hang-on all-wheel drive system Porsche Traction Management (PTM).

Porsche’s Cayenne GTS received a facelift today and now, the Cayenne lineup is almost complete, as we still need to see the new Cayenne Turbo S. The biggest change on the new 2015 Porsche Cayenne GTS Facelift is that the new model ditched the old 4.8-liter V8 engine in favor of a new 3.6-liter V6 biturbo engine.

The new engine delivers 440 hp and 600 Nm of torque. As a result, it is more powerful than the previous V8 (+20 hp) but also more fuel-efficient because fuel consumption goes down by 0.9 l/100 km.

The new engine helps the Cayenne GTS to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.2 seconds, or in 5.1 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono Package (0.6/0.5 seconds faster than its predecessor), while top speed is 262 km/h or 162 mph.
