Porsche’s new generation Cayenne will be introduced at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show. However, it seems that the car manufacturer can’t wait until September, so they are constantly testing undisguised prototypes. Well okay, this white beauty is still hiding headlights and taillights, but the rest of the exterior design isn’t secret anymore.
As you can see, the new exterior styling echoes today’s model, but that’s not too bad at all. The crossover looks really attractive and we are pretty sure it’s going to be even more popular than its predecessor, simply because it will be a far better option.
The 2018 Porsche Cayenne will be lighter and more rigid thanks to a new architecture. The MLB Evo platform will do the job by implementing plenty of aluminum, high-strength steel, and some carbon fiber. Plus, the SUV will significantly improve driving dynamics and performance. Of course, since it will be around 220 pounds lights, the gorgeous high-riding car will also boost fuel economy numbers.
Even though it features evolutionary design, the 2018 Cayenne gets some new things. In the front, the SUV sports a big mouth, which seems to us like they are still not done. This clamshell hood is something we saw already. However, it’s has been stolen from the smaller Macan SUV. On the other hand, rooflines, windows behind the rear doors, and rear hatch are totally new here. Inside, the redesigned Cayenne gets “Panamera” treatment. Well, the dashboard and systems are identical, but rest of the car is different.
Although the car manufacturer hasn’t confirmed anything, we are pretty sure what’s going to power the 2018 Porsche Cayenne. The base model will use a 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that develops 330 hp and 331 lb-ft of twist. They won’t skip the chance to offer an amazing twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 as well. The mighty mill will deliver up to 440 hp and 405 lb-ft of twist. The most potent gasoline model will use a 4.0-liter biturbo V8 with 550 hp and 567 lb-ft, but that won’t be the most impressive mill. No, as we announced earlier, the carmaker also prepares two hybrids. One of them currently powers the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, so we know everything about it. It’s a combination of the aforementioned V8 and an electric motor. The new Cayenne’s hybrid drivetrain will reportedly deliver around 680 horsepower, which is really fantastic. Plus, the crossover will be able to cross around 30 miles without any help of V8.
Although the new generation Cayenne largely resembles its predecessor, it’s quite clear it would be a far better option. Still, before we get all information about it, you can enjoy in the fantastic white prototype.
