Porsche Cayenne 2024 unveils design

The 2024 Porsche Cayenne partially revealed the front design of that car. See below for more details about this revelation!

THE porsche is ending a long teaser campaign, sharing a final preview of the 2024 Cayenne ahead of the luxury SUV's debut next week at Auto Shanghai.

As seen in the adjacent gallery, we have already discovered the interior with heavy canvas. Now it's time to get out of the vehicle and check out your updated front panel. In typical Zuffenhausen style, the styling tweaks will be evolutionary, but there's one big change hiding in plain sight.

We're talking about the newly developed HD matrix headlamps, which encompass an impressive 16,384 individually controllable micro-LEDs on a miniature-sized surface area.

They are all contained on a chip, with two for each headlight, making a total of four per vehicle. Activate the glare-free high beam function and it will illuminate the road ahead for up to 600 meters.

Porsche said these headlights are more energy efficient as only the necessary pixels light up. Each of the four modules comes with an upper strip of daytime running lights.

They provide lighting and an auxiliary light, each having three LEDs. The light distributed by the lower modules overlaps in the center and each one has its own set of lenses to produce different lighting angles.

At the rear, there will be an updated lightbar with new graphics, along with a repositioned license plate, moving it lower on the bumper to echo the Cayenne Coupe.

Elsewhere there will be more power across the board, starting with the base model with its 3.0-liter turbo V6 producing 349 hp or 14 hp more than before. The Cayenne S will lose its V6 in favor of a larger 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with 468 hp and 442 lb-ft.

The flagship Cayenne Coupe-only Turbo GT will offer 651 hp (20 hp increase) and an unchanged 627 lb-ft of torque. As for the E-Hybrid, it will have a combined 463 hp (+8 hp) and 479 lb-ft (-39 lb-ft). All will have an eight-speed automatic transmission linked to an AWD setup, with the electrified models benefiting from a larger 25.9 kWh battery instead of the current 17.9 kWh package.

Hybrids are also getting an 11 kW on-board charger instead of the currently optional 7.2 kW configuration. For China, Porsche is planning a smaller four-cylinder model with a 2.0-litre petrol unit to allow customers to avoid taxes on vehicles with large-displacement engines.

The 2024 Cayenne will represent “one of the most extensive product updates in the history of porsche“.

As a final note, the Zuffenhausen brand has already announced a fourth generation model from 2025 as an EV from the same plant in Bratislava, Slovakia, where the current ICE and PHEV models are produced.
