New Cayenne model–created especially for the North American market–to
offer exclusive colors, and comprehensive option package as
Porsche today announced a new model for the Cayenne lineup designed
specifically for the U.S. and Canadian markets. The V-8 powered Cayenne S
Titanium Edition will be available beginning in mid-July. This sharp new
addition to the Porsche Cayenne lineup of sporting SUVs features
titanium-colored trim, exclusive exterior and interior finishes, and the
Cayenne’s most popular options as standard equipment. The Cayenne S Titanium
Edition will provide this additional content at a price point approximately
10 percent lower than a comparably equipped Cayenne S.
The newest Porsche SUV draws it moniker from the “Titanium Metallic”
trim which is exclusive to the model. The exterior trim pieces which receive
a finish in this subtle metallic hue include the roof spoiler, the frame and
lower portion of the side mirrors, the front air inlets, window frames
including the B- and C-pillars, door handles (with a body-color inlay),
door-sill trim and the Cayenne S logo.
The Cayenne S Titanium Edition is available in four distinct exterior
colors, including two which are exclusive to the new model:
“Pure Red” is a vibrant and overtly sporting shade, and “Iceland Silver
Metallic” is a classic light silver tinged with cool blue. The Cayenne S
Titanium Edition will also be available in “Black” and “Marine Blue
Metallic.” Along with the door handle inlays, each Cayenne S Titanium
Edition features body-colored rocker-panel extensions, helping frame the
standard 19-inch wheels coated in a Titanium Metallic finish. Also standard
are four-pipe-look chrome exhaust tips, and 20-inch SportTechno wheels with
a titanium-color finish are optional.
The interior receives equal attention, as the cabin of each Cayenne S
Titanium Edition features an exclusive two-tone design. The two color
combinations are “Black/Sand Beige” and “Black/Steel Grey,”
with the dark finish covering the center sections of the seats and
headrests, the floormats, the upper dashboard and door trim panels, the
steering wheel rim and steering column, the front of the center console and
the luggage compartment cover. In keeping with the model’s metallic theme,
the instrument cluster dials have a metal-look finish, and the
stainless-steel door-entry guards are embossed with the “Cayenne S titanium”
Contributing to its stylish-value theme, the Cayenne S Titanium Edition
provides as standard equipment the most popular options fitted to vehicles
in the North American market. These include Bi-Xenon headlights with
dynamically controlled cornering lights, Porsche Communication Management
(PCM) with DVD/GPS based navigation, and an electric tilting/sliding glass
Like the Cayenne S, the Cayenne S Titanium Edition is propelled by a
340-horsepower, 4.5-liter V-8. Mated to the standard six-speed Tiptronic S
automatic transmission, the Cayenne S Titanium Edition can sprint from a
standstill to 60 mph (96 km/h) in only 6.8 seconds. The Cayenne S Titanium
Edition can reach 99 mph (160 km/h) in just 16.8 seconds, and has a top
track speed of 150 mph (242 km/h).
Like all of Porsche’s vehicles, the Cayenne possesses amazingly athletic
capabilities, and thanks to the standard all-wheel-drive and Porsche
Traction Management, these capabilities are not limited to paved roads.
While many SUVs have an inherent tendency towards nose-heavy handling
characteristics, Porsche engineers direct the majority of the V-8 engine’s
torque (62 percent) to the rear wheels.
This provides all Cayenne models with handling dynamics more in line with
Porsche’s rear-drive sports cars, setting it apart in the SUV marketplace.
These traits are so sought after by enthusiast drivers that the Cayenne has
become the best selling of all Porsche models.
The Porsche Cayenne Titanium Edition goes on sale in the U.S. and Canada
in mid-July. Pricing for the new model in the U.S. is $64,900 (USD).
