Default 2015 Cayenne

Anyone have any info, pics, specs on the 2015 face lift Cayenne and when they will hit the US shores? I'm looking to get a DD, and was thinking to pick up a slightly used 2013/14 Cayenne GTS/Diesel/Turbo or a left over car at the dealer but now that the 2015 is coming out... I'm not sure whether to wait or just buy something now.

I asked my salesperson recently and he didnt know yet. He speculated the V6 T will make its way into the S version and everything else will be cosmetic including Macan like tail lights.

The rumor that just won't die.

Porsche has expressed concerns about the PDK being able to handle the rigors of towing and/or off road use. I think there is a pretty low possibility of them offering an either/or option (e.g. buy the PDK and accept that it can't tow or go off road) as that would be too confusing and cause problems in the long run.

I would be surprised if the Cayenne doesn't eventually get a PDK, but it's not going to come as part of a mid-cycle refresh.

The abbreviation of a very German word describing an automatic double clutch transmission:

PDK in the GTS/Turbo/Turbo S will be insane. Well... I really wish it can be part of the Cayenne line up as that gear box in phenomonal but I understand the offroad and towing issue.

13/14 GTS/Turbo or Wait for new 2015?

I've been searching for a leftover 2013 or 2014 car. I haven't found one with the specs I want so now I may just wait for the official release of the 15 to see what improvements have been made.

Hopefully it won't take too long and the x5m comes out first!!

I've got a 2014 CD with the prem plus package, heated rear seats, sunshades and tow hitch but no entry and drive. Interested?

I saw your M5 posted for sale? May I ask why you're looking to move to a Cayenne? Your car is extremely nice and wanted to reach out to you but I really wanted B&O...

I LOOOOOVE my M5. But I have an M3 convertible, I had an X5M that I traded in for the m5, and now I have a GT3 coming in May

After the last two months in DC of slush, sleet and snow I realize that I need one SUV.

I do have it up for sale and its a great great car...and B&O is nice, but the Bose system is pretty nice too.

Candidly I rented a Tahoe for the last few days..I'm thinking of just adding to that to the fleet !! My wife would kill me though.

When the Cayenne gets a face lift expecting the price of it to go up quite a bit is what my dealer told me. They are going to make "room" in the pricing for the Macan? Whatever that means.

If I were contemplating a Cayenne I would order it now or order a Macan if it fits for you.
