Posted by Michael Gauthier in cayenne, Electric Vehicles, porsche, Porsche Macan, Reports on 12 11th, 2017

BMW helped to kick off the crossover coupe craze when it introduced the X6 and Mercedes followed suit with the GLC and GLE Coupes.

Porsche is considering jumping on the crossover coupe bandwagon and CEO Oliver Blume recently confirmed a decision will be made sometime next year. Blume declined to say which way the company is leaning but he told Automotive News, “There might be opportunities for the future but it always depends on the volume behind it.” He went on to say the company analyzes each segment it wants to enter and seizes opportunities when they exist.

If the company signs off on the plan, we can expect to see coupe versions of the Cayenne and Macan. The publication is reporting a Macan Coupe could be introduced as early as 2021 with an electric powertrain. It would soon be followed by a redesigned version of the regular model.

Speaking of electric vehicles, Blume confirmed Porsche will announce its next eco-friendly vehicle in the first half of 2018. It is widely expected to be a Macan EV but Blume would only say “We have to check if it makes sense for Porsche to come with an [electric] SUV.”

The new Cajun crossover from the Porsche stables will be built Germany’s Leipzig.  In a bid to spruce up the facility, Porsche has kicked off efforts to add more infrastructure into the factory. These add-ons are expected to come in the form of new assembly line and paint shop.

The earlier Cayenne and Panamera production had already spurred the carmaker to spruce up the production facility at Leipzig.  The move had been to add that extra quality into new car production.


The Cajun is to be made on the Audi Q5 platform and will come with a design influenced by Walter de’ Silva, according to the company.  Most probably looking at a 2014 roll out, the car will be positioned to rival models such as Mercedes GLK, BMW X3, and Land Rover Evoque.

It is expected that the Leipzig facility will see great amounts of sprucing up. The expanded facility will also have on offer at least one thousand new jobs.

Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, cayenne, hybrid, panamera, porsche, SUV on 02 1st, 2011

Porsche is said to be thinking of introducing the diesel Cayenne SUV and diesel Panamera in the US. Porsche may take the decision soon and may launch the vehicles this year itself because U.S is the single largest market for the German car makers.

Porsche is likely to unveil the Panamera diesel and a gasoline-electric hybrid this March at the Geneva Motor Show. Porsche has understood that the need for fuel efficient vehicles is increasing even in the premium segment.

This is no big deal for Porsche as they had started selling Cayenne diesel in Europe from 2009 beginning. In 2010 a Cayenne gasoline-electric hybrid was launched in Europe and the U.S. Since then diesel and hybrid versions makes up for 30% of Cayenne sales globally.


Bernhard Maier, the brand’s sales and marketing chief, told Automotive News Europe that even though U.S automotive market only has a small share for diesel vehicles, the routine is reversing. Maier said that Porsche would not be bringing diesel cars in China owing to poor quality fuel.

Maier said Porsche deliveries increased by 27 percent to more than 97,000 deliveries in 2010 and order quotes rose by 49 percent to 114,000 units. This is the company’s largest number of orders in history and looking good for the new year. With its presence in 113 globally scattered markets, Porsche can surely expect its sales to grow rapidly.

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz ML-Class is currently going into the final testing stages. Recently the vehicle was spotted while it was being tested to see how it measured up against the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X5.

These two vehicles would be the biggest competition that the ML-Class would face in this segment, and engineers would naturally be keen to see how the next-generation vehicle would fare when up against them.

The pictures were taken in Southern Europe, where two ML prototypes in deep camouflage were seen when the entourage was taking a break from testing. The vehicle seems to be a bit lower than its forerunner.

Set to debut as a 2012 model in 2011, the ML Class is likely to have engine options that include the 3.0 liter V6 diesel, a 3.5 liter gasoline/petrol V6 and a range-topping 5.5 liter V8.

It is likely that a hybrid variant will also be available, with the company saying that a plug-in hybrid variant is also being considered.
