Porsche continues to successfully add sportscar touch to critical Cayenne large SUV
14 Jun 2018
PORSCHE celebrated its 70th anniversary last week. On June 8, 1948, the 356 ‘No. 1’ Roadster was registered, making it the first vehicle to wear a Porsche badge. Fast forward 70 years and the German sportscar-maker has unleashed its third-generation Cayenne – a large SUV that seemingly belied Porsche’s sportscar origins when it first broke cover in 2002.
However, the original Cayenne proved to be a tremendous hit for the brand, boosting its global sales to levels not seen before. Most of its success was due to the fact that it was genuinely good, proving to be the go-to performance model in the SUV pack.

Nevertheless, it’s familiar face hides some significant changes underneath, so does it drive as well too? We put three variants of the latest Cayenne through their paces to find out.
