New smaller Porsche SUV
30th November, 2010
During its meeting yesterday (local time), the Supervisory
Board of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, laid the foundations for continuing growth of the company.
The Supervisory Board instructed the Board of Management to drive forward the development of a new model
range to series production. Under the working name "Cajun", this new model will further expand Porsche's
presence in the SUV segment. The "Cajun" will have typical Porsche features such as light weight, ease of
handling and agility. As an entry model for the Porsche brand, the "Cajun" will attract new and younger
customers to the marque.
Presumably the new Porsche Cajun (series production name to be confirmed) will be based on the
Volkswagen Tiguan. In coming years additional new models under the Porsche brand can be expected as
Volkswagen (Porsche's new owners) steer the sports car manufacturer to higher sales volumes.
