- Prices and full specification to be revealed at launch
IF you are out and about somewhere really hot – or incredibly cold – keep your eyes peeled for the new Porsche Cayenne.
The third generation of Porsche’s popular SUV is due to be revealed on August 29, 2017 with extensive testing having taken place worldwide.
The new model has been tested in the scorching 50 degree heat of Death Valley and the sand dunes around Dubai. It has also survived at up to – down to? – minus 45 degrees in the ice and snow of Alaska and Canada. The test models have travelled a combined distance of 4.4 million kilometres during testing.
So it should be perfectly capable of dealing with the Monday morning rush on the M25 then.
Given that Porsche have squeezed an entire life into a short space of time you shouldn’t have any cause for concern regarding the capability of the new Cayenne. The test models of the new car have been clocking up a lifetime of urban traffic, country roads, and motorway journeys, on average covering 150,000 miles in just a few months.
Porsche recognise that the average Cayenne driver is unlikely to experience such harsh conditions. The idea of all that testing is to ensure that the completely redesigned Porsche Cayenne achieves a perfect balance between sportiness and comfort. Somehow we doubt that this will be a problem for Porsche.
We can’t really tell you much about the new Porsche Cayenne yet, those details will be revealed in the next week or so. What we can say is that it will be impeccably built and brilliantly engineered. It is a Porsche after all.
