The third generation Porsche Cayenne Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) was officially launched in Singapore on 28 March 2018.

The third generation Porsche Cayenne made its debut on 29 August 2017 in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen.

First produced by the German manufacturer in 2002, the Cayenne has proven its worth in the luxury SUV segment as more than 760,000 units have been sold worldwide since its launch.

The first Porsche Cayenne SUV was introduced in Singapore in 2003 and has become a bestseller for Porsche Centre Singapore.

From what we understand, Porsche currently produces around 272,000 vehicles a year and some 52% of these are SUVs. This means that the Cayenne SUV accounts for the majority of Porsche’s production volume.

According to Francis Lee, managing director of Porsche Centre Singapore, when he first became involved with the brand 17 years ago, Porsche had an annual production volume of 28,000 units. This represents a remarkable growth for this German marque.

Three models are now available for the Singapore market: the V6 Turbo, V6 Twin-turbo and V8 twin-turbo.

The Cayenne Turbo with 550hp (404 kW) has a new 4.0-litre V8 bi-turbo engine with 770 Nm of torque and its 8-speed Tiptronic S gearbox (with the Sport Chrono package) achieves the century sprint in 3.9 seconds with its top speed of 286 km per hour.
