Base, S, S Hybrid, Turbo 4-door SUV
3.0L V-6/electric motor; 3.6L V-6; 4.8L V-8; 4.8L Turbocharged V-8
What’s New for ’11
A hybrid variant, powered by a DOHC 3.0L V-6 paired with a synchronous alternating-current motor and 288-volt nickel-metal-hydride battery pack, joins the lineup as Porsche’s first production hybrid. The prior 7-speed automatic has been replaced by an 8-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission, which is paired with automatic engine start/stop technology to significantly reduce fuel consumption. It is standard on all but the Base model, where it is optional.
- The Cayenne is totally redesigned, with a slightly longer wheelbase that yields increased space for cargo and backseat passengers, but lacks most of the prior model’s off-road capabilities.
