2011 Porsche Canyenne Revealed with Video

By | February 26, 2010

Our view on new Porsches was tragically turned sour when the utterly hideous Panamera was revealed to the public just a year ago. Now Porsche is at it again, this time with the debute of their 2011 Cayenne. Another year, another Cayenne right?

Not so. The 2011 model represents a redesign in the Cayenne lineup, officially ushering it into its second generation. So how did ze Germans do in this launch? Lets run through a essential debut checklist to see how this new Cayenne compares to the previous model:

  1. It comes with several engine varieties including a diesel and a hybrid. Check (Worthy of every trend)
  2. It has more power than before. Check (15 hp more in the V8 S model)
  3. It is significantly lighter. Check (400lbs lighter, in fact)
  4. It costs more. Check (Now an arm and a leg)
  5. It has been redesigned to look better. Check (Eye of the beholder..

Despite a flawless checklist you’ve probably picked up that we are a bit wary about the new Cayenne, but we do have to give it credit where credit is due. It does look much more sleek than before, especially with that Panamera-esk front (the only good part about the Panamera). Also, 400lbs is a lot of weight so it should feel much lighter on the road.

But our anti performance SUV mindset still says the new 2011 Cayenne will be a frivolous waste of your hard earned money.

Robert Redford had one of the first Cayenees in Utah. Bob has a little bit of a lead foot and crashed it with in a short while…

A few days later his second one just appeared whilst many waited for their own.

Seriously? I guess I can totally see Mr. Redford as a bit of a speed demon.
