Details of the next generation Porsche Cayenne was released at its launch at the recent Geneva Motorshow. From the images, the new model looks less clumsy as compared to its predecessor thanks to a lowered roofline, steeper angle of the rear tailgate and sharper looking snout.

While the front end is distinctly Porsche, the same cannot be said for the boot. It could pass off as an offering from a Japanese make without looking at the logo. The layout of the interior has been given a thorough revamp with the dashboard, center and lower consoles looking very similar to the Panamera sports sedan. The new Cayenne shares its platform with the new Volkswagen Touareg while sharing some mechanical components with the Panamera. Despite growing in length, the new German SUV has shed about 200kg as compared to the outgoing model.

Petrol powertrain options will include the VW Group's 3.6-liter V6 petrol with 300HP found in the entry level Panamera, a 4.8-liter V8 (400HP) and a turbocharged version of the 4.8L unit generating 500HP. In addition, the Cayenne will be offered with the same diesel-electric hybrid drivetrain as the Touareg, coupling a 3.3-liter supercharged V6 TSI engine producing 333HP to a 47HP electric motor for a total output of 380HP.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

Wow...the designers are on a roll with ugly designs eh...

Obviously my own opinion but I just think the Panamera was a desperate attempt at coming up with a four-door quickly to compete with the likes of the QP and the Rapide.

I take the clear evidence supplied by the aftermarket dealers of their various kits for the Panamera to backup the claims of it being a horrible design to start with.

Now we've got this. The Panamera rear just doesn't suit the rugged nature of an SUV. The tail light cluster is disturbing as well.
