Sometimes, we have to laugh at headlines. Several auto news sites have reported that their intrepid reporters have seen the 2018 Porsche Cayenne on the test track out of its test camouflage. They could’ve just gone to a Porsche dealership. It’s in stock now at Porsche of Nashua! 

The Porsche Cayenne enters a new generation in 2018. If you’re expecting wholesale changes, you don’t know Porsche SUVs, or the Porsche AG philosophy. The company usually approaches redesigns with a light hand, and this one is no exception.

The 2018 Porsche Cayenne has a somewhat more aggressive stance than before. It’s been subtly re-proportioned so that it’s wider at the base than at its apex, not unlike the current Porsche Macan. The slope of the A and D pillars is also revised, giving them a sharper tilt which, in turn, leads to a lowered roofline and a smaller rear window.

The vehicle rides on a new platform that’s a bit lighter than before. That results in a weight savings as much as 440 pounds. That, in tandem with three powerful engine choices (ranging from 330 to 550 horsepower), gives you plenty of speed and agility, but it also means better fuel economy than before.

The 2018 Porsche Cayenne is in stock now at your Andover, MA Porsche dealership. If 2017 has been the year of the Porsche Panamera, it’s a fair guess that 2018 will be the year of the Porsche Cayenne. After all, this was the first-ever Porsche SUV, so it holds a certain pride of place for a brand with plenty to be proud of.

We’ll have more on this great new Porsche SUV in the weeks ahead. But since we’d hate to spoil any surprises, we’d suggest visiting Porsche of Nashua at 170 Main Dunstable Road. That’s where you’ll find our extensive new and pre-owned inventory, Andover, MA area Porsche service, and a whole lot more.
