It's hard to believe that the Porsche Cayenne is already 15 years old. After bursting onto the scene in the 2003 model year, the Cayenne has gone through two transformations and is now navigating its difficult adolescent years with aplomb.
As with all teenagers, however, the Cayenne continues to experience the flux and shift of change. For the 2019 model year, Porsche will be pushing the sports credentials of the Cayenne further than ever before, without hindering the practicality which has made the vehicle such a strong performer and in the wider market.
A new platform for the Cayenne means some dropped pounds, enhanced fuel economy, and improved handling. Architecture is not everything, though, and the Porsche Cayenne still needs some serious propulsion if it is to live up to its spicy moniker. This is provided in abundance by a new set of turbocharged engines. Porsche are still not forthcoming with the exact details of these engines, but given the manufacturer's track record in this department, there is much to get excited about.
Porsche Cayenne, 911 and 718 Boxster Even Sleeker in 2019
Aesthetically, drivers can expect a few additional changes. That iconic Porsche look is still present and correct, particularly at the front end, where that trademark grille and bug-eyed headlamps remain resplendent. However, the overall style is expected to be more curvy and even more sporty than ever before, reinforcing the idea that – while the Cayenne is certainly a versatile vehicles – a joyous driving experience is always going to be a major part of its identity.
The sleeker bodywork on the Cayenne is reminiscent of that of the 911, which also receives a re-release for the 2019 model year. Drivers shouldn't expect anything too revolutionary from the new Porsche 911 – after all, this is already one Porsche's most popular vehicles. However, early indications hint at a few key stylistic updates, although exact details remain thin on the ground.
The 2019 Porsche 718 Boxster looks as if it will be every bit as handsome as the 911. A forward thinking and aggressive design has been teased, but one which retains elements of the classic Porsche Spyder from the 1960s. Under the hood, the Boxster is expected to feature a flat 4 turbocharged engine, capable of up to 400 horsepower; an impressive figure for such a svelte vehicle. However, this is yet to be confirmed.
