What’s new is that The infotainment appears to be sticking out from the dashboard. Also, there’s a new gear lever.
It is obvious that Porsche is an automaker with a relatively small lineup. However, the German automaker is showing it’s working on updates 24/7.This is very clear in how the 911 family has more variations than customer can count and the same can be said about the powerful 718 sports cars. The Cayenne has as many versions as the other models. Porsche has released multiple versions and a separate body style.
After introducing the Coupe-only Turbo GT, the customer appeared to be focusing on the flagship version with its complicated name – Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid. In particular, the prototype is a strong sign the whole Cayenne family will be getting a mid-cycle update as the third-gen model was introduced over some years ago.
In addition, It’s not just any prototype of Porsche’s big SUV as we are working with the Porsche Turbo S E-Hybrid with its quad exhaust tips. The acid green brake calipers are dual fuel caps are signs of an electrified setup, the most powerful of the bunch as it produces a 670 horsepower, thus eclipsing the 631-hp Porsche Turbo GT.
Speaking of the updates, Bigger changes could notice inside the cabin where the prototype spied high-altitude testing in Colorado featured a rather unusual center console. Customers can clearly see that the dashboard is not the final version as the infotainment has a ghastly hump with a thick bezel made out of cheap plastic.
Porsche has removed the bulky automatic gear lever, replaced with a much smaller shaver-like design already used in the 992-generation 911 to give the lower section of the center console a more modern and refined look. This Cayenne is a prototype, though, so the quality of the materials is not exactly the same with what you’ll find in the production version.
