S SNAPPED: Prototypes of Porsche’s new Cayenne SUV, were caught this week by photographers from the Carparazzi agency undergoing cold weather testing in Europe. Thecar that created the cash for Porsche tobuy Volkswagen is heading for achange. PaulGover reports ping straight into the worldwide drive for luxury four-wheel drives. It even funded development of T the company’s core cars, the 911s, and built the base which has ensured the success of the Box- ster and Cayman. Now it is heading for its first total model change and proto- types were caught this week in cold weather testing in Europe by photographers from the Car- parazzi agency. The pictures show Cayennes which are close to final produc- tion specification, pointing to a preview at the Frankfurt Motor Show in October and sales in the first half of 2010. Details of the Cayenne are still a closely-guarded secret but early rumours that Porsche would go its own way, ending the collab- oration with Volkswagen that created the Cayenne and Touar- eg as twins, is wrong. Porsche will still use the basic body of the second-generation Touareg but company chief, Wendelin Wiedeking, is commit- ting to getting his car on the road first. Looking at Volkswagen Group timing, that points to a new HE Cayenne SUV has been the money ma- chine for Porsche since it was introduced, tap- Touareg in the second half of 2010 and a replacement for the giant Audi Q7 early in 2011. ThenewCayenne is absolutely vital to Porsche. ‘‘It is the vehicle that provides the cash for us to create the world’s best sports cars,’’ Por- sche Cars Australia spokesman Paul Ellis said. ‘‘It is the backbone of sales in Australia. ‘‘Around 40 per cent of our sales are Cayennes.’’ Production of the original Cay- enne has just topped 200,000 cars, with the landmark car running down the production line in Germany last week. It has been built since 2002. There are currently five Cay- enne models,from the basicV6to the Turbo S, with a diesel- powered car also in the works. The all-new Cayenne is ex- pected to have a similar line-up but will also be the base for Porsche’s first hybrid vehicle. Salvage Auction Featuring damaged vehicles fromInsurance Companies.
