Performance and Character. The Cayenne is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 in 5.6 seconds. Top track speed is 160 mph, while fuel consumption has been reduced by 23% and CO2 emissions by as much as 26%*. Black slats on the air intakes make them appear larger, and the car wider. Other distinctive features include 18-inch wheels. (*compared to previous model)

Porsche Traction Management. PTM is an active all-wheel drive system with an electronically variable, map-controlled multiplate clutch, automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR). With the aid of on-board sensors, the status of the car is continuously monitored and the front/rear split is adjusted to match changing driving conditions. In conjunction with advanced Porsche Stability Management (PSM), PTM ensures the perfect distribution of drive torque for optimum traction in all road scenarios.

Direct fuel injection. Using electromagnetic injectors, DFI injects fuel directly into the combustion chamber at up to 120 bar with millisecond precision. The swirling of the fuel as it enters each chamber increases the mixing of air and fuel, thereby enhancing combustion.

VarioCam Plus. By steplessly adjusting the inlet valve timing and lift, VarioCam Plus creates two engines out of one. The system differentiates between normal road usage and performance driving, adapting seamlessly as driver inputs change. The system provides greater performance with relatively modest fuel consumption.

Tiptronic S. The outstanding feature of the eight-speed Tiptronic S is a particularly wide ratio spread. First gear is designed for optimum acceleration when pulling away and greater performance when tackling ascents and towing loads in off-road terrain. Top track speed is reached in 6th gear (in 7th gear on the Cayenne Diesel). The remaining upper gears are used to lower the engine speeds at highway speed, thereby enhancing fuel economy and occupant comfort.

Variable Valve Timing. For better fuel economy, lower emissions and greater power and torque, variable valve timing is provided on both  the engine inlet and exhaust. Camshaft phase angles are continuously varied by the engine management system via rotary-vane adjusters.

Cooling Systems. Cayenne models are designed for efficient cooling to provide the highest performance engine. Exceptional performance can only be achieved when all components are operating consistently within a specific temperature range.

Auto Start/Stop Function. The Cayenne also features an auto start/stop function. The only changes you’ll perceive: peace and quiet and – thanks to greater fuel economy – also peace of mind.
