    Porsche trademarks GT5 name, possibly for hardcore Cayenne Coupe

    A look through the database of the United States Patent and Trademark Office reveals that Porsche filed trademark protection for “GT5” in automotive use in July 2018. It isn't clear whether Porsche has any actual use planned for the name, though Motor Trend journalist Jonny Lieberman...

    2020 Porsche Cayenne coupe spy shots and video

    4 ways the 2019 Porsche Cayenne moves upmarket

    It looked like heresy when Porsche released its first SUV in 2002, but it turned out to be a brilliant move. The Cayenne quickly took the mantle as the brand’s best-seller, and it became an adage that the Cayenne enabled Porsche to keep building sports cars. The move also turned out to be...

  • 2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid
    2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid first drive review: Porsche’s case for electrification

    An air of practicality sweeps over Porsche these days. It’s not unlike the strong winds coming off the Mediterranean Sea on the warm spring day when I find myself behind the wheel of a 2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid pushing toward the French coast from hilly Provence. This warm, humid breeze...

    2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid: eco without compromise

    The 2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid's biggest rival might be parked across the showroom. That's because the Cayenne E-Hybrid, with its 445-horsepower hybrid powertrain delivers faster acceleration and better fuel economy than the Cayenne S. Oh, and it's cheaper. The Cayenne E-Hybrid's $80,950 base...

  • Teaser for 2019 Porsche Cayenne E Hybrid
    Porsche Cayenne E Hybrid coming soon

Fans of the outgoing Cayenne hybrid don't have to wait much longer as a replacement is coming soon, and to build the excitement Porsche has given us a look at some of the testing that's gone into the vehicle's...

  • 2015 Porsche Cayenne Diesel
    Just kidding, Porsche isn't done with diesels yet

    Maybe the executives at Porsche need to schedule a meeting so they can all get their stories straight. Recently, we reported that the German automaker was moving up its timetable to axe the diesel engine from its lineup. Their original plan seemed to have the oil burner powerplants running through...

    2019 Porsche Cayenne first drive review: an epoch-ending SUV

    Back in the 1980s, Porsche knew it could build an SUV. And it knew a Porsche SUV would sell well. It finally got around to building that first Cayenne in 2002. Instincts: correct. Since then, it’s sold more than 770,000 of them. It’s so successful, Porsche now sells a smaller Macan SUV...

  • 2019 Porsche Cayenne

    It’s the very antithesis of Porsche. Or is it? The Cayenne, an SUV, is the sports car company's second best seller, behind another SUV, the Macan. It may be an SUV, but it’s still a Porsche and that means it has to be sporty. Porsche is introducing the third generation of the Cayenne for the 2019 model year, and this one promises to be the sportiest and roomiest yet. Performance with utility? Doesn’t seem very Porsche, but in a world in which two SUVs lead the way for a sports car brand, that’s the reality. To see just how Porsche is improving its third-generation...

  • 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo, 2017 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show
    2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo takes familiar route to high performance

    Porsche knows chemistry. Take an engine from the Porsche Panamera Turbo that can reach 150 mph (ask me how I know), and add the third-generation Cayenne. The solution is the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo that appeared Tuesday at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA). Or maybe it's alchemy because the...

    Porsche provides insights on design of the 2019 Cayenne

    One could be forgiven for thinking Porsche just hit copy on the company’s Xerox machine when designing the latest Cayenne, but there’s actually a lot of subtlety and fine details that make the third-generation model unique. A new video on the design of the latest Cayenne, which arrives...

    2019 Porsche Cayenne adds power, tech, restrained look

    In the past couple of years, Porsche has redesigned the Cayman and Boxster (adding the 718 designation to each), introduced a twin-turbocharged 911 Carrera, and turned the Panamera from one of the most unattractive cars on the road into one of the best looking. Good. Great. Wonderful. And none of...

  • 2017 Porsche Macan GTS First Drive
    Porsche SUVs will never get track-focused GT variants

    As capable as the Cayenne and Macan are, the Porsche SUVs will never get track-focused GT variants like their sports car siblings. That’s the word of Porsche engineer Andreas Preuninger, who leads development of the automaker’s GT sports cars like the 911 GT3 and Cayman GT4. Speaking...

  • Porsche Cayenne tows an Air France Airbus A380

    It's always fun to watch something small try to tow something very large. Remember back in 2012 when a Toyota Tundra towed the Space Shuttle Endeavor? That was a pretty amazing sight. But it pales in comparison to what a Porsche Cayenne just pulled off. There's a new world record for heaviest aircraft pulled by a production vehicle, because a bone-stock Porsche Cayenne managed to tow an Airbus A380 for 42 meters. The Airbus A380 is the largest passenger aircraft. It weighs in at a mammoth 285 metric tonnes. That's equivalent to 314 U.S. tons, or nearly 630,000 pounds. By comparison, the...

    Porsche will launch a new generation of its Cayenne in 2017, a prototype for which is shown above, and shortly after we may see a sleek, coupe-like version targeting high-end versions of the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. Talk of the vehicle dates back several years but flared up recently when...

  • Porsche parked poorly
    Poor Porsche parking job video leads to hit-and-run arrest

    To call this parking effort "poor" is underselling it quite a bit. What we have here is, in fact, one of the worst parking jobs ever. It seems a young resident of Vancouver was attempting to park his Porsche Cayenne in a garage. That should be a boring and simple task. This round peg should fit in...

  • 2017 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid Platinum Edition
    2017 Porsche Cayenne preview

  • 2015 Porsche Macan
    Macan Crossover Could Be Porsche's Most Popular Model By This Year

    In a move that would surprise no one, Porsche says it can see its Macan crossover take over the top sales spot from the best-selling Cayenne. For a number of years now, the Cayenne has been a volume leader for the German automaker. Now that the Macan will get a full calendar year of sales under its...
