    Cayenne RS Rumor

    I also got this rumor today, take it with a laaaaarge grain of salt :

    Porsche seems to plan a high performance version of the Cayenne (RS or GT).
    Two engine variants are rumored to be discussed right now:
    1. a modified and supped up Cayenne Turbo engine with around 500 HP.
    2. a highly modified variant of the CGT V10 engine with substantially over 500 HP.

    The first engine has the advantage of low cost, allowing Porsche to offer a powerkit for the current Cayenne Turbo too.
    The second engine has the advantage of extreme exclusivity, especially for the US and Middle East/Asia market.

    The Cayenne RS (or whatever the name will be...) is rumored to be less off-road capable than the standard Cayenne due to a highly modified air suspension and there is also a strong rumor that Porsche wants to add some lightweight parts to it, especially if they decide to build the more expensive variant with the CGT derivate engine.

    I'm curious to see if this rumor becomes reality, sounds very interesting to me.

    Re: Cayenne RS Rumor

    Well ... I don't know what to think of this. As has been said many times on this board ... The Cayenne Is No Sports Car! So why are they doing this? Hmmm ... to go faster? Yeah, I guess so. We all want to go faster or we wouldn't be reading this board! As someone said " if you think you have things under control, your just not going fast enough!

    But, as you may have gathered from my other posts, I would like to see Porsche make more efforts toward the off-road sporting capabilities of this vehicle. Maybe they will. It's still very early in this product's life.

    Re: Cayenne RS Rumor

    The new upcoming Advanced Off-Road Technical Package is one step forward towards enhanced off-road capability.

    And I agree (as always ) that the Cayenne is no sports car but some owners (and potential buyers) still want to convince themselves that it is.
    Again, don't get me wrong: I'd buy a Cayenne Turbo and even the S (although I'm well known as a power monger... ) anytime if I had to buy a new SUV.

    To be honest: I like a lot of power in my SUV, I can't tell why. Our family ML55 AMG has always been a lot of fun and after driving the Cayenne Turbo for several hours, I had a big grin on my face when I returned it back.
    So maybe the old saying "a woman can never be too beautiful and a car never can have too much power" is right.

    Re: Cayenne RS Rumor

    I totally agree with your statement ( women can never be too beautiful and cars never have enough power......), but beauty and power is always in the eyes of the beholder......

    Beauty and power can't be discussed.
