Led by the Cayenne S Hybrid, the first production car from Porsche with hybrid drive, the new generation of models paves the way in terms of modern efficiency, with a reduction in fuel consumption by up to 23 per cent versus the former models.

Like every Porsche, the new Cayenne has been developed according to the principle of Porsche Intelligent Performance: more power on less fuel, greater efficiency and lower CO2 emissions. The new Cayenne enters the market in no less than five versions. The Cayenne 3.6-litre V6 developing 300 hp, the Cayenne Diesel 3.0-litre V6 with 240 bhp, the Cayenne S with its 4.8-litre V8 pushing 400 bhp, the first ever Cayenne S Hybrid Parallel full hybrid powered by a 3.0-litre supercharged V6 and synchronous electric motor developing 380 bhp, and the top-of-the-line Cayenne Turbo 4.8-litre biturbo-V8 packing a hefty 500 bhp.
