The next-gen Porsche Cayenne might be significantly faster than the outgoing model as hinted by Porsche R&D chief Wolfgang Hatz. The new Cayenne will be capable of clocking 300kmph and will be much lighter too.
The upcoming Bentley SUV - the Bentayga was claimed by the company to be the fastest SUV ever. However, Porsche’s reply to that claim came with a 561bhp Cayenne Turbo S introduced at the Detroit Motor Show. This powerful variant clocked the Nurburgring in a sub eight-minute time (7:59.74).
In addition, he told journalists, at NAIAS, in Detroit the next generation Cayenne scheduled to come out sometime in 2017 is going to be considerably quicker and will hit a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h).
The new Cayenne might also drop under the two-tonne mark and will also get a newly developed V8 motor.
Hatzhas also revealed that the Cayenne and the Macan won’t be joined by any new SUV.
