Porsche don’t build cars, they build sports cars, and they build them with passion and enthusiasm, for people who want to drive with the same.

Now, if you want dynamic performance, five doors, spacious comfort, a sports car designed for the whole family – and yet for you alone – there is one above all the rest: a Porsche Cayenne S.

The new Cayenne continues its success with a new design, new driver assistance systems, new drive components and a higher output.

Precisely contoured lines announce a sports car with character and stature. The new exterior mirrors with integrated indicators and attractive wheels in sizes up to 21 inches emphasise the car’s dynamics.

Every detail has been used to highlight what matters most, the sporting credibility that only a Porsche can offer. The result is clear: distinctive appeal. The Cayenne gives the term enthusiasm a face.

It’s actually all about that one moment when you turn the key in the ignition. And what that triggers in you. The new Cayenne. Enthusiast driven.

It is exhilarating to feel the power available – at any speed – and the instant response to your needs. Equally impressive is the smooth yet firm braking power that can bring you to a halt in an incredibly short time and space. Fabulous.

Porsche Cayenne S InteriorYou may simply wish to luxuriate in the exquisitely crafted interior. The Porsche Communication Management system (PCM) gives fabulous sound via the many Bose speakers and hours of information and entertainment, whether you are navigating, listening to your music through the variety of media, all easily available and very
user-friendly through the large touch screen or other convenient controls.

The Porsche Stability Management system helps stabilise the vehicle in hazardous road scenarios. The electronic control system uses sensors to continuously monitor the direction, speed, yaw velocity and lateral acceleration of the car.

So, the Cayenne concept goes beyond pure sports performance, offering class, comfort, variability and style. It also offers peace of mind.

The rising centre console reduces the distance between the steering wheel and the most important vehicle controls. The multifunction steering wheel, derived from the 918 Spyder, also speaks the language of motorsport.
