    Report: Porsche Cajun Ready for 2012 Debut, Spotted Testing

    From Automobile magazine:

    http://rumors.automobilemag.com/report-porsche-cajun-ready-for-2012-debut-spotted-testing-77397.html

    An excerpt:


    "We had reported earlier that the Cajun is well on its way to completion, and Auto Express managed to snap a few shots of a Cajun testing mule — disguised as its platform-mate, the Audi Q5 — driving near Porsche’s testing center at the Nurburgring. They claim it is proof that the baby Cayenne is ready for a 2012 debut and a 2013 production date, right on schedule."

    Re: Report: Porsche Cajun Ready for 2012 Debut, Spotted Testing

    A couple of things should be clarified: The VW - Porsche merger hasn't gone through yet and it may even not get through at all, meaning that there will be another, less "pleasant" solution for Porsche. All VW - Porsche projects could be in danger because of that, so I'm not quite sure if the time table for the Cajun or Pajun and other new models which depend on cooperation with the VW group, would be the same it was a couple of months ago. There are so many rumors right now regarding this, you can't even imagine. surprise

    A 2012 debut (?) and a 2013 production date wouldn't make much sense but I'm pretty sure that the Cajun is coming, this model makes a lot of sense from any point of view, especially if oil prices will go up again.

    There may be some merger difficulties that are beyond the control of VW or Porsche, but I have to think this project is going forward, merger or not. They worked together on the Cayenne, and then the Panamera, without a merger, so...

    The Cajun is definitely something I'm interested in. My Cayenne is over 7 years old and 160k miles on the odometer. Time to think of replacing it. Still runs great though.

    Re: Report: Porsche Cajun Ready for 2012 Debut, Spotted Testing

    VW had nothing to do with the Panamera.

    The Touareg was a Porsche development for VW, the VW engineers involved in this project were actually working outside Weissach because VW was actually not affiliated with Porsche in any way at that time. As far as I remember, VW paid 200 Mio. EUR to Porsche for the Touareg development.

    The merger has a huge impact on future projects and if it doesn't go through, an even bigger one (in a negative sense).

    Dealers have been told to expect the small Porsche SUV end of 2012 for sale in early 2013. They are already planning extra showroom space. So, the project is already very developed. I don't think the merger has anything to do with it, besides the accounting technicalities of inter-company financial transfers depending on the exact corporate reletionship.

    Do  you think there is a real possibility that at the end this will not go through ?  Everybody would be loosing too much if this happens.

    Nothing is written in stone,, especially not the presentation date. I don't know about dealers outside Germany but german dealers have limited space and I doubt that they have any money left for expansion since that hideous CI campaign started a couple of years ago.

    If the merger with VW falls through, things could look very very different.

    I think Gary was referring to the fact that Porsche contracted out the stamping, assembly and painting of the Panamera bodies  to VW, which will have involved some pretty intense cooperation on this model even before the takeover issue became public.

    Now I understand. Thanks for clarifying. Smiley
