Porsche Cajun (2013): it's the new baby Cayenne

Porsche is readying its new Cajun, short for Cayenne junior. Every bit as spicy as its bigger brother, the Cajun CUV (compact utility vehicle or coupé ute) is scheduled to go into production in spring 2013 - but you can see it two years early in our artist's impression.
The sporty crossover is based on the-then facelifted Audi Q5. Audi would reportedly prefer Porsche to concentrate on an even more dynamic standalone three-door version, but the Weissach dream team claims it needs the volume generated by the four-door model to warrant the postulated double-digit profit margin.
Uh-oh. So Porsche is moving further away from sports cars and building yet more SUVs?

Yep. While the old regime was strictly against the Cajun, warning that it would cannibalise the even more profitable Cayenne, the new boss Mathias Müller sees the car as a licence to print money and as an opportunity to boost the output by approximately 50,000 units a year. According to the still provisional launch plan, we shall first see the full-size four-door coupé and then in late 2014 the two-door version based on a shortened platform.
The Cajun will be derived from a components set known as MLB wide which is broader and thus potentially more aggressive than the Q5. Having said that, the key dimensions don't vary dramatically.
So how big is the new 2013 Porsche Cajun?

The rear overhang will be cut by 30mm, the roof comes down by 20mm, and the width increases by 15mm. What makes a difference are the bigger tyres with a strong emphasis on redesigned 19- and 20-inch rims. All exterior and interior panels will of course be styled from scratch, but the windscreen angle, the firewall and the roof pillars have to remain as they are. CAR's artist's impression shows what to expect.
To ensure a sports car-like driving position, the Cajun receives bespoke seats, a less steeply raked steering column and the dashboard of the new Boxster complete with instrumentation, infotainment and the traditional offset ignition lock. The substantial centre stack rises at an angle, Panamera-style.
Although the base model is a four-seater, a 4+1 rear seat will be available as an option. The head- and taillights are of the high-intensity LED matrix beam kind. Together with the body structure of the Q5, the Porsche Cajun will carry over the chassis, steering, axles, quattro drivetrain, six- and seven-speed dual-clutch transmissions as well as the engines, albeit in modified form.
What's under the bonnet of the new Porsche Cajun?

Here is an exclusive rundown of the four designated powerplants:
• 2.0 TFSI, 240bhp/258lb ft
• 3.0 TFSI V6, 292bhp/295lb ft
• 2.0 TDI, 190bhp/258lb ft
• 3.0 TDI V6, 265bhp/369lb ft
As you can see, the Swabians have increased the power output of the Q5 units by 20bhp across the board. In addition, there is a Cajun Turbo S in the works. It features Porsche´s own twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6 rated at 350bhp. Also in the making is a Cajun Hybrid fitted with the same 211bhp four-cylinder-plus-47bhp-electric-motor kit as the Q5.
Porsche-specific tweaks include the Sport Chrono pack with launch control, stronger brakes with optional carbon-ceramic discs, wheels/tyres and the complete exhaust system including a switchable free-flow sports muffler.
As soon as the Cayenne receives the more powerful 300bhp TDI unit, Porsche will start marketing the diesel more aggressively on a global basis, and there is a good chance that the Cajun V6 TDI, too, is going to be offered in America.
Where will Porsche build the new Cajun?

In an ideal world, the CUV will be built in Ingolstadt alongside the Q5. But since the Bavarian plant is already running at 105% capacity, it will be built in Leipzig, the home of the Cayenne.
Pricing is expected to exceed the Q5 by about 15%.

The best selling Porsche for the last 3 years has been the Cayenne so it's no surprise they would make a smaller one.

Still, I'd rather buy its cousin the VW Toaureg and pocket the $20-50K difference.

Yeah, I have no idea why VW discontinued the V10 TT Diesel. That thing is an absolutely monster!

What's the engine selection now? V6 and V8 only?

It just isnt available in the US anymore.

The stopped importing it because it would sell here in the states. Nobody wanted to admit that a German car was superior to the big 3s trucks. The V10 TT TDI is a monster of a truck and from what I have read is only out performed off road by the H1 hummer.

Sad. VW really had some world beater products over here that they just didn't market correctly.

The Toaureg V10. The Phaeton. The R32 GTI. The VR6 Corrado.

I owned 2 Corrados (G60 and a VR6). My wife had one too.

Definitely a love/hate relationship with VW products.

same routine.
