The fully redesigned 2011 Porsche Cayenne. On the ground at Isringhausen (Video).


The all new 2011 Cayenne takes a more enlightened approach to marriage of sport and utility. Its taut, sleek shape is the result of Porsches belief that form must follow the demands of function, not the whims of fashion. Consider the lines of the new Cayenne: The exterior is unmistakably Porsche. The sharper profile exudes purpose, which is further emphasized by the dynamic rear roof pillars and flowing coup-like silhouette. Under the hood, the new, lighter Cayenne S is fitted with a 4.8-liter, naturally aspirated V8 engine that deploys Direct Fuel Injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus and a two-stage intake manifold to create 400 horsepower and maximum torque of 369 lb.-ft. Top track speed is 160 mph, and the Cayenne S accelerates from 0-60 mph in as little as 5.6 seconds. The Cayenne Turbo comes with a 4.8-liter, turbo charged V8 engine that deploys Direct Fuel Injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus and a two-stage intake manifold to create 500 horsepower and maximum torque of 516 lb.-ft. Top track speed is 172 mph, and the Cayenne Turbo accelerates from 0-60 mph in as little as 4.4 seconds. All this with impressive fuel economy, thanks to a weight reduction of 397 pounds. The new Cayenne also uses Porsche Traction Management (PTM). This active all-wheel-drive system features an electronically variable, map-controlled multi-plate clutch, an Automatic Brake Differential (ABD) and Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR). Working in conjunction with the advanced Porsche Stability Management (PSM), PTM ensures the required torque split in every driving scenario, whether on-road or off-, during spirited driving or leisurely journeys, or even when towing heavy loads.
