The all-new 2011 Porsche Cayenne is more sporting and dynamic, more fuel efficient, more spacious and lighter.
The 2011 Cayenne features:
— An entirely new exterior design that appears sleeker and smaller when in fact it is larger than the previous model, but is still instantly recognizable as a Porsche Cayenne;
— An all-new, spacious interior that raises the luxury bar and puts this passenger compartment on par with the award-winning interior found in the Panamera Gran Turismo;
— More rear cargo room and interior space for the rear passengers thanks to a longer wheelbase and rear seats that adjust fore and aft with seat-back incline positions;
— A new all-wheel drive system that can be paired with Porsche’s new Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus option to provide agile on-road driving dynamics;
The high-torque Cayenne S 4.8-liter V-8 engine output is now 400 horsepower compared to 385 horsepower in the former Cayenne S. And the range-topping Cayenne Turbo with its 500-horsepower, twin-turbocharged, 4.8-liter V-8 is 23 percent more fuel efficient than its predecessor.
Cayenne is 1.9 inches longer and an added 1.6 inches in wheelbase ensures extra space and greater versatility. The new headlights resemble those on other Porsches, with the high-beam lamps positioned closer to the centerline of the car and the low-beams toward the outer edge.
Inside, the luxurious interior features a high center console that rises up at an incline to meet the dashboard center stack with high-quality fittings and a touch-screen infotainment interface to provide a cockpit-like environment.
Base model estimated mpg: 16/23
Estimated starting price: $46,700
