2012 porsche cayenne Reviews and News

2012 Porsche Cayenne
2012 Porsche Cayenne
The Porsche Cayenne remains problematic from a brand purist's point of view: it's too big, too mass-market, too similar to other products from the Volkswagen Group (in this sense, it's a harbinger of the future). For the luxury SUV buyer unburdened by such philosophical concerns, however, the Cayenne is a compelling vehicle. With last year's redesign, the Cayenne looks much trimmer--and it is. An aluminum-intensive structure and a revised all-wheel-drive system shave up to 400 pounds from the previous Cayenne, depending on options. There are, of course, lots of options, from four powertrains to $2330 painted air-conditioning vents. The Hybrid achieves 20/23 mpg thanks to the 47-hp electric motor paired with its Audi-sourced 3.0-liter V-6, but it suffers from the dynamic pitfalls typical of this technology, including unnatural-feeling brakes. We hope the Cayenne diesel, headed to our market later this year, will serve up efficiency with fewer compromises. Those who don't really care about fuel efficiency in their German luxury crossover can opt for the 500-hp, 4.8-liter twin-turbo V-8, which makes the Cayenne Turbo feel far more agile than the previous version. The interior, even without those fancy A/C vents, will please even the pickiest luxury customers. The cornucopia of buttons on the center console may confound drivers at first, but they become rather intuitive over time.

We could debate the merits of 500-hp SUVs for days, but the fact is that the Cayenne is Porsche's best-selling model by a large margin, and the U.S. market swallows up nearly one in three Cayennes built. That does not, however, mean that every American will adore all versions of the SUV: the sand yellow paint on this Porsche Cayenne Turbo was met with almost universal disgust by friends, family, and even complete strangers. Save $3140 and pick a different color.
Eterniti Artemis Front 2
Buyers interested in the emerging super SUV class should take note: Eterniti is providing a first look at its upcoming Artemis SUV at the Beijing auto show this week. The London-based company is hard at work readying its super SUV, which it says will be on sale in the fall of this year. The Eterniti Artemis will compete with luxury SUVs on the way from Bentley, Lamborghini, and Maserati.
2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS Front Three Quarter
There's a new version of the Porsche Cayenne in town, and it will make its debut later this month at the Beijing Motor Show. The 2013 Cayenne GTS is, like the GTS model of the first-generation Cayenne, designed to fit in between the Cayenne S and the Cayenne GTS.

Stefan Fegg is the Project Manager for Powertrains on the Porsche Cayenne. Deputy Editor Joe DeMatio spoke to him while sitting in a Porsche Cayenne Diesel on the Porsche stand at Javits during media days for the 2012 New York Auto Show. The Cayenne Diesel goes on sale this fall for $55,750, versus $48,850 for the gasoline V-6 Cayenne.
2012 Porsche Cayenne Diesel Front Three Quarter
Porsche is trying on a new shade of green -- it already sells both the Panamera S and Cayenne S Hybrids in the U.S. and will be rolling out the hybrid-powered 918 Spyder supercar next year. Now, add another car to that list: Porsche has just announced the 2013 Cayenne Diesel for the U.S. market.
