Porsche just officially confirmed that it will proceed with the building of the smaller version of the Porsche Cayenne, which will be called as the Cajun. The news came about when the supervisor board decided to give it a “green light”. Although the above photo is a rendering piece by Teamspeed.com, we expect that the production Porsche Cajun will be very similar to it.
“During the production of the Cayenne and the Panamera, our Leipzig plant has impressively proved that it can produce premium vehicles of highest quality,” said Matthias Müller, chairman of the Porsche AG board of management. “The decision in favour of this location is proof of our trust in the skills and qualifications of our Leipzig associates, and at the same time another contribution to the economic advancement of the region.”
The Porsche Cajun will be built at the Leipzig factory in Germany, which construction work is schedule to begin in 2011 for this 1.54 square miles facility.
With the success of the Porsche Caynne, Porsche is building the Cajun to be more efficient and agile, which will extend its SUV segment to all over the world. Powering the Cajun will be the Audi’s 2.0-liter TFSI engine producing about 260 horsepower. A V-6 engine option is also a good possibility.The Porsche Cajun will be catered to younger customers as a desirable entry model at affordable price.
