New York Auto show reveals new Porsche

Porsche lovers who care about the environment ought to be marking their calendars for the New York Auto Show which takes place from 2 to 11 April at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. Some of the hottest cars and trucks ever seen will be together all under one roof.  There will be sneak peaks at brand new 2010 and 2011 production models and more concept vehicles than ever before. 
 
Porsche is an integral part of this event, important for car lovers the world over, and will put its latest models on display at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, Level 3, Booth 710.
For the first time in the United States, Porsche will present the new generation of its SUV, the Porsche Cayenne, in its Cayenne S and Turbo variants.
 
Expanding Porsche Intelligent Performance – more power with less fuel, more efficiency and lower CO2 emissions – to a world-wide level , they will also be showing the hybrid variant of the new Cayenne, the Cayenne Hybrid, for the first time in the Western hemisphere.
 
Led by a highly advanced hybrid model, the new Porsche Cayenne sport-utility vehicle delivers improved performance while using less fuel and producing fewer emissions throughout the entire model lineup.
 
The Cayenne model range will include four models: the 2011 Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo and the Cayenne S Hybrid. The S and Turbo models go on sale in Latin America and the Caribbean in June, with the Cayenne and Cayenne S Hybrid in dealer showrooms at the end of the summer.
 
The high-tech Cayenne S Hybrid that is debuting at the New York show next week features a highly sophisticated parallel full hybrid system. With a combined power output of 380 horsepower from the supercharged V6 combustion engine and an electric motor, the Cayenne S Hybrid combines the performance of a V8 with the economy of a V6.
 
Through continuous interaction between the 3.0-litre supercharged V6 and electric motor, the Cayenne S Hybrid focuses on maximum efficiency. Depending on driving conditions, either drive unit can operate independently or together. The 47-horsepower (34 kW) electric motor is the ideal partner for the 333-horsepower engine, which produces high torque at low engine speeds. With peak torque at 428 lb-ft at just 1,000 rpm, the Cayenne S Hybrid’s performance is on par with a V8- powered Cayenne S.
 
The Cayenne S Hybrid’s two drive units are connected by a decoupling clutch. A hybrid controller constantly coordinates their complex interaction, and intelligent management of the clutch makes the transition among various driving modes seamless. Like many hybrids, the Cayenne S Hybrid can cover short distances on electric power alone, free of emissions and noise up to 60 km/h or almost 40 mph. For aggressive acceleration, the motor provides an extra ‘boost’ to the gasoline engine.
 
All the new Cayenne models embody the Porsche Intelligent Performance philosophy, the evolution of vehicles sportier than their predecessors, yet more fuel and emissions efficient.
