2010 Porsche Cayenne Heads for Transsyberia

September 8, 2008
Porsche says the Cayenne SUV gets a new edition for the 2010 model year, and it's inspired by a trans-Russian rally.

The 2010 Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia shows up at dealer next spring, derived in part from the racing trucks that ply a 4,400-mile route across Russia and Mongolia every spring for two weeks. Porsche's won the race three times in a row--hence this edition, which gets the Cayenne GTS' 405-horsepower, direct-injection V-8 and six-speed automatic transmission.

The Transsyberia Cayennes also will be outfitted with an air suspension and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and permanent all-wheel drive. Four colors are in the available palette, with contrasting highlights. Steel skid plates, 18-inch wheels and other off-road details are standard, while an off-road package with a locking rear differential is offered.

The base price of the new Transsyberia is $70,800, and only 600 copies are coming to North America, Porsche says.
