2011 Porsche Cayenne

The 2011 Porsche Cayenne is no longer a secret – though spy shots were already floating around. The third-generation Cayenne is now officially announced, for the world to see. The verdict?

It looks awesome. What else did you expect? The 2011 Cayenne is definitely an evolutionary design – in other words, typical Porsche. It’s unquestionably a Cayenne, which means it’s dead sexy for an SUV. I know that Porsche purists still get their panties in a bunch when they think of / see a Cayenne, but the rest of us have gotten over it. In the world of SUV’s, the Cayenne is as bad-ass as you get.

2011 Porsche Cayenne Specs

  • 300 HP V6 (Entry level
  • Available 400 HP 4.8 liter V8 (S model)
  • Available 500 HP twin turbo 4.8 liter V8 (Turbo model)
  • 2011 Cayenne Hybrid – Supercharged 3.0 liter V6 hooked up to a 47 HP electric motor. Total output: 380 HP / 427 lb-ft of torque
  • 400 pound weight drop for Cayenne S

Much of the same in the engines – except for the introduction of the 2011 Cayenne Hybrid. Interestingly, Porsche used a supercharged V6 as the base engine. The end product manages to put out nearly 400 horsepower, so I suppose I won’t complain too loudly. No word on fuel economy estimates at this point.
