The slightly sloped rear is what qualifies it as a "Coupe" Also the rear door windows are dodgy as all hell on that thing.
The revised Cayenne gets a 12.6-inch digital instrument cluster with a curved screen, versus the current layout with an analog tachometer in the center. Depending on the vehicle's specifications, the driver can select up to seven display modes. The views include a simplified layout with a focus on essential information. There's also one that has Porsche's traditional five-circle design.
A rectangular, 12.3-inch screen dominates the center of the dashboard. It supports Siri voice commands to operate vehicle functions. Online-connected navigation is a standard feature. When stationary, occupants can stream video on the display.
Underneath the big screen, there's a new control panel for the HVAC system. It has a glass surface over a black panel and features touch recognition with haptic feedback. The system also has some physical control switches. Below them, there's a volume knob.
An optional 10.9-inch screen is available on the passenger side of the dashboard. It gives those occupants control over the navigation system and media. The screen can also stream videos while the Cayenne is on the move, and a filter prevents driver distraction.
The 2024 Cayenne will come standard with a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 making 349 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. The S trim will get a twin-turbo V8 providing 468 hp and 442 lb-ft. The E-Hybrid PHEV will produce 463 hp and 479 lb-ft. Plus, it'll receive a higher-capacity battery of 25.9 kilowatt-hours, instead of 17.9 kWh currently. A more powerful Turbo S E-Hybrid will come later.
Today, Porsche introduced the 2024 Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid. The new variant adopts the styling cues from the SUV's recent mid-cycle refresh. It's also the automaker's most potent Cayenne model yet while replacing the previous Turbo variant.
Under the hood of Porsche's new model, which is available in SUV and Coupe body styles, is its twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine. It makes 591 horsepower and pairs with a 174-hp electric motor. The total system output is 729 hp and 700 pound-feet of torque. Porsche says the powertrain can propel the Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid to 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds. It has a 183-mph top speed.
The Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid has a larger 25.9-kilowatt-hour battery pack, which the automaker mounts under the cargo area. Porsche says a new 11-kilowatt on-board charger with a suitable power source can reduce the battery's charging time to under 2.5 hours. Other improvements increase the battery’s electric range, but the automaker didn’t disclose those numbers just yet.
Porsche says the Turbo E-Hybrid is available to order now. It will begin reaching dealers in 2024's second quarter. Its price will start at $148,550 (price includes the $1,650 destination charge). The E-Hybrid Coupe is a tad more expensive, starting at $153,050.
The entry-level Cayenne continues to use a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that makes 348 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque. It's also much cheaper than its Turbo E-Hybrid siblings, starting at $80,850. However, the Turbo E-Hybrid is more affordable than the $197,950 Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT, which has 650 hp on tap.
