December 5, 2006; Porsche has announced the next-generation Cayenne and its Turbo and S variants will make their worldwide debut at NAIAS 2007 in January. The trio of 2008 Porsche SUVs incorporates new styling, enhanced engine performance and innovative handling technology.

To increase power and torque, as well as fuel economy, the engines on all three new Cayenne models are equipped with direct gasoline injection, known at Porsche as Direct Fuel Injection (DFI). To improve the Cayenne’s already exceptional handling, directional stability, and ride comfort, an inventive new Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) is available as an option on each of the new SUVs.

Designated as 2008 models, the trio of new Porsche SUVs will arrive at North American Porsche dealerships in March of 2007. The 2008 Cayenne has an MSRP of $43,400; the Cayenne S starts at $57,900; and the Cayenne Turbo lists at $93,700. Canadian pricing has yet to be announced.

The original Cayenne models were introduced four years ago. More information on the newest Cayenne, Cayenne S, and Cayenne Turbo will be available at the NAIAS Porsche press conference on Jan. 8.
