Porsche introduced the 3rd generation of the all-time favorite Cayenne model. The new SUV is 6 cm longer than its predecessor, has a 100 liter bigger trunk and several additional improvements compared to the previous version. Porsche states that the Cayenne III will hit the market by the end of 2017. The in-official statement issued by the Porsche developer team said that they wanted to go back to the roots with the Cayenne III. Thus, the new generation is closer to the brand essence and driving it is supposed to feel like driving a 911 on stilts.
