Porsche is expected to unveil the 2011 Porsche Cayenne next week on the web. The online debut on Tuesday will take place two weeks before the official debut at the Geneva Motor Show. Porsche posted on their German site the teaser photo of the Cayenne in silhouette behind the 911 GT3 R Hybrid race car announced yesterday.
The vehicle is expected to be offered in five different power levels, including a hybrid. Similar to the recently revealed 2011 VW Touareg Hybrid the new Cayenne will use a 333 PS (245 kW) supercharged 3.0-liter V6 from Audi along with a 47 PS (34 kW) electric motor. It could top Porsche's fuel economy charts, delivering 34.5 mpg UK combined, with CO2 emissions reduced to under 200 grams per km.
Also on offer will be a VW-powered 3.0-liter TDI 240 PS (176 kW) V6 engine, 3.6-liter 280 PS (206 kW) V6, and a 4.8-liter 400 PS (294 kW) V8. A turbocharged version of the latter should appear on the Cayenne Turbo, expected to produce up to 500 PS (368 kW).
Look for more details on the 2011 Porsche Cayenne to appear next week.
