Porsche    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Porsche confirms Cajun, Diesel Cayenne coming to US market
Automobile Magazine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Porsche let slip two morsels of news that had been widely expected for some time. The company will launch its Cajun small SUV in the U.S. by 2013, and also will launch a diesel version of the Cayenne in 2012. Purists may cry foul at the idea of another SUV and Porsche's first diesel vehicle in the U.S., but such models are important to the brand's survival. The Cayenne has bolstered Porsche's bottom line and is the company's hottest-selling product; profits from that help fund other projects like the 911, Cayman, Boxster, and so on. Porsche sold 12,978 Cayennes here in 2011, compared to just 6016 copies of the 911 sports car. More

Porsche pickup seems even less likely
Chicago Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In 2008, when Porsche AG attempted to take over Volkswagen AG, some reports said the hubris shown from Porsche came from the fact the company had been on the brink of collapse at the turn of the millennium but came roaring back with the huge global success of its first SUV, the Cayenne.

Wired    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Porsche 911 is an odd duck. Here we have one of history's great sports cars, a strong-selling, fast, good-looking machine that reeks of sex and history. It is a marker of success: "Timmy bought a Porsche! He must have gotten that banking job." High resale value makes it a good investment. It is also a technological triumph - despite their capability, Porsches are almost always reliable, long-lived things. And yet the model has always been something of an acquired taste. More
