TopCar presents the Porsche Cayenne Vantage 2 Lemon

Article by Christian A., on May 29, 2012

Ok, we have to admit that we love all the vehicles customized by the Russian tuning company TopCar but the latest Vantage 2 Lemon is too much. Don’t get us wrong, we love the car but the color not so much.

Of course, we do love their way to improve the positive mood to the car owners, but can’t a Wunderbaum car freshener do this? So, the project is based on the Porsche Cayenne (958) and upgrades the well-known SUV using a aerodynamic body kit.

The kit consists in front and rear bumpers, front and rear fender extenders, new side sills and kicking plates, a bonnet and boot lid spoiler.

Regarding the “impressive” paintwork, we find the exterior details (side window frames, front bumper inserts, bonnet vents, side-skits, kicking plates inserts, exterior mirror housings, spoilers, diffuser inserts, brake calipers) colored in a special pearl paint "Lime", while the rest of the car is painted in citreous color. Same “Lime” color is found at the interior.

Porsche’s new Cayenne is more: more energetic, more efficient, lighter, and roomier. It offers a preview of future technology and boasts a sporty, sophisticated design. It’s certainly more Porsche than ever.

Taking the lead is Porsche’s Cayenne S Hybrid, the first Porsche hybrid drive production car, paving the way for modern productivity with the new generation, by reducing their fuel use by almost 23 percent compared to the previous models.

The new Cayenne is like all Porsches in being developed in line with the principles of Porsche Intelligent Performance: less fuel creating more power, greater economy, and lowered CO2 emissions.

With these facts in mind, three of the five variants in this range stay under the New European Driving Cycle’s fuel consumption limit of ten litres per 100 km. Two of the models are also able to stay under the 200 g of CO2 per km – 195 g/km for the Cayenne Diesel and 193 g/km for the Cayenne S Hybrid.

The significantly reduced fuel use found in all the Porsche Cayenne models will lead to such advances as the ushering in of the new Porsche eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission replete with auto start/stop and even more gear increments, thermal engine and transmission cooling circuit management, a recuperated onboard configuration, adjustable overrun cut-off, and, most of all, a consistency in weight reduction and an intelligently light build.

Porsche takes advantage of an optimal weight mixture of materials and design changes in the total vehicle, like the modern, extremely light all-wheel drive. For instance, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo weighs much less. It’s lighter by at least 185 kg or almost 410 lbs, even though it is a substantively improved product and offers extremely increased safety at all ends. Not only is this good for CO2 emissions and fuel economy, but it is also an improvement on the road dexterity, handling, and performance.
