Porsche wouldn’t be where it is today without the addition of the Cayenne, some may have questioned why a German sports car company which was spiritually attached to the roadster could make SUV’s, but the addition of the Cayenne seems to have been a fantastic one for China as it got Chinese customers more involved in the brand and as a result helped sell more sports cars.
The Cayenne is now a common vehicle in China, I personally must see around 20 of them per day at a bare minimum but when I was a wee boy seeing a Porsche was a rare weekend treat when a well off local solicitor or barrister would take his Stuttgart built machine for a run over the local hills.
So for 2014 and beyond, Porsche have to make the Cayenne even better for the Chinese market. Note that this update hasn’t been overly big on the exterior, a little bit of a nip and tuck around the front and also it appears the dashboard has likely been revised somewhat due to the covers attempting to hide the styling.
For those curious, the Cayenne retails for just over 850,000RMB ($140,000USD) or the base 3.0L model to 2.63 million RMB (429,000USD) for the top of the line Turbo S.
