For more than a year now, we’ve been hearing rumors of a baby Porsche Cayenne – well, we may finally be able to lay those rumors to rest. According to AutoCar the Porsche Cayenne will be the smallest SUV built by the company because it fears a smaller model could steal sales away from the bigger model.
Insiders told the UK publication that they “believe that there is strong evidence of the Audi Q5 taking sales from the Audi Q7, and are not willing to follow a similar route.”
The Cayenne accounts for around 50 percent of Porsche’s profits.
The new 2011 Porsche Cayenne will make its U.S. debut next week at the 2010 New York Auto Show and will be offered with a Cayenne S Hybrid variant that features a parallel full hybrid drive system allowing it to return a combined fuel-economy of 29 mpg.
