Right/Rear View (high-res) of Cayenne Turbo

Like I've been saying all along - it does not look like an SUV. It's more along the lines of the Audi Allroad and the Volvo AWD car. This is not a Land Cruiser - it's an AWD Porsche that will kick the you-know-what of the MB's and BMW's. Of course, with a twin-turbo'd V8, IT OUGHT TO!

Porsche's Cayenne Press Release

Porsche(R) Releases First Photo of Cayenne(R); Highly Anticipated Sport Utility Vehicle to Make Debut in Late 2002

ATLANTA, March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) today revealed the first glimpse of its luxury sport utility vehicle, the Porsche Cayenne. Taking the Porsche experience to a new level, the Cayenne will create the perfect balance of performance and power, delivering outstanding on-pavement performance and very good off-pavement characteristics. The vehicle's debut is slated for the last half of 2002.

Photos released today are of the Cayenne Turbo, which will be powered by a Porsche-designed 4.5-liter, twin turbocharged V-8 engine rated at 450 horsepower and producing 457 lb-ft of torque. Porsche also announced a second model, the normally aspirated, 4.5-liter, V-8-powered Cayenne S, which is rated at 340 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. The Cayenne Turbo accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.6 seconds, vs. 7.2 seconds for the Cayenne S. The Cayenne's towing capacity is 3,500 kilograms, or 7,716 lbs.

A six-speed Tiptronic S transmission is standard equipment on the Cayenne Turbo, and both Cayenne versions have permanent all-wheel drive, an inter-axle differential lock and additional low-range gears, and the Porsche Stability Management (PSM) system.

Additional front air inlets, power domes on the hood, and four exhaust tailpipes help distinguish the Cayenne Turbo from the Cayenne S. The Cayenne Turbo and Cayenne S are 75.9 inches wide and 66.9 inches tall, with a wheelbase of 112.4 inches. The overall length of the Turbo version is 188.43 inches, vs. 188.27 inches for the Cayenne S.

"Porsche has been at the forefront of all-wheel-drive design," said Frederick J. Schwab, PCNA president and CEO. "From the Lohner-Porsche in 1900 to the Porsche 959 in 1985, Porsche has been engineering four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles. The Cayenne is a natural for us, and it will put the sport in sport utility vehicles."

After three years of comprehensive testing in remote locations across the globe, the Cayenne concept was approved. The requirements: satisfy Porsche's performance and quality standards and meet the utility and reliability expectations of an SUV.

Cayenne production will take place in Leipzig, Germany, in a newly constructed factory, but its engine -- or heart -- will be built in Zuffenhausen. Porsche will produce approximately 25,000 Cayennes during the first full year of production, 70 percent of which will be for export. In anticipation of the Cayenne's arrival, PCNA recently launched the Cayenne Crossing Initiative, a multi-year program designed to reclaim America's paved and unpaved roads. Chaired by actor James Brolin, the program will include a variety of U.S. road restoration and maintenance projects along a route that stretches from coast to coast.

Cayenne Crossing Initiative partners will include Treadlightly!, the Illinois Department of Transportation, the San Bernardino National Forest Association and the Porsche Club of America. Initial restoration efforts will begin this summer in California's San Bernardino National Forest and Virginia's George Washington National Forest.

For more information about the Cayenne, visit www.porschecayenne.com . For more information about the Cayenne Crossing or to download Cayenne images, visit www.press.porsche.com . Cayenne images will also be available from PR Newswire.

PCNA, based in Atlanta, Ga., and its subsidiary, Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd., are the exclusive importers of Porsche vehicles for the United States and Canada. A wholly owned, indirect subsidiary of Dr. Ing. h.c.F. Porsche AG, PCNA employs approximately 200 people who provide Porsche vehicles, parts, marketing and training for its 204 dealers in North America. They, in turn, provide Porsche owners with best-in-class service.

Porsche Issues 2 Press Releases in 1 Day (US Sales Fall Offset by Europe)

Porsche sees Europe offsetting any U.S. sales fall

FRANKFURT, March 5 (Reuters) - German luxury sportscar maker Porsche said on Tuesday final first-half results were better than preliminary results released in January and that any shortfall in U.S. sales would be made up in European markets.

The world's most profitable carmaker, which released the first photographs of its new Cayenne sports utility unit at the Geneva motor show on Tuesday, reiterated it expected to hold last year's revenues and pre-tax profit levels this fiscal year despite economic uncertainty which could depress unit sales.

Porsche said first half after-tax profit rose to 89.4 million euros ($77.7 million) from 69.1 million a year ago, boosted by favourable effects from German corporate tax reform, while pre-tax profit was up 12 percent to 156.5 million.

Even if unit sales fell below last year's level, revenues and pre-tax earnings this year would at least be flat, it said.

Porsche stock was slightly lower, trading down 0.26 percent at 535.49 euros at 0950 GMT, valuing the group at around 4.7 billion euros, while the Dow Jones Stoxx European car sector index was flat.

Porsche was by far the best performer in the index over the last 12 months, gaining around 58 percent and now trading 176 percent above a 199-euro low hit last September. The share has risen some 19 percent over the last four weeks.

Stuttgart-based Porsche said sales in the first half of its 2001/2002 business year rose 6.8 percent to 1.84 billion euros as vehicle sales remained near flat, edging up 1.2 percent to 23,475 units.

Car production in the six months to January 31 rose 1.7 percent to 25,164 units.

Porsche Chief Executive Wendelin Wiedeking in January told shareholders the firm's key U.S. market had not suffered long from the effects of the September 11 airliner attacks in New York and Washington. The company sells nearly half of its cars in the United States. He said Porsche was considering a New York listing -- news which helped shares hit an all-time high.

Porsche's long-anticipated sport utility vehicle Cayenne will hit showrooms in the second half of this year -- the carmaker's first departure from its Boxster and 911 luxury sports cars -- and is expected to boost total output to 75,000 to 80,000 units per year from about 50,000.

If you are in an RS6, the only thing you'll have to get used to

is the backend view of the Cayenne.
