2011 Porsche Cayenne Photos and Details Leaked

The new Porsche Cayenne is one of the most eagerly-awaited models that will attend the 2010 Geneva Motor Show but, up until now, the only things we got were a few teasers or scans from various sources across the globe. Well, what we have here are actually the first leaked photos and details which seem to be official. (Full details and photos released, can be viewed here)

As you can see for yourself in the adjacent photos and in the photo gallery below, the new Cayenne is restyled at both the front and the rear, but the biggest changes can be spotted inside the car, where the interior seems to be more inspired from the Panamera.

In terms of technical details, the new Cayenne, which will be based on the same Volkswagen Touareg platform, will be around 40mm longer but 200 kilos lighter as compared to the existing version.

The engine lineup will include the existing 3.6-liter V6 petrol unit available on the Panamera and developing 300 horsepower plus a 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel generating 240 horsepower. The Cayenne S will get a 4.8-liter V8 naturally-aspirated configuration bringing out 400 horsepower while the Cayenne Turbo will feature the same engine, now supercharged, producing 500 horsepower.

Sales of the new Cayenne are expected to begin this spring after the public display at Geneva next week.
