The new Porsche Cayenne - an SUV with Porsche DNA
The sharp drop in the dollar exchange rate, the model policy and the high costs in production cause problems for the company from 1986 onwards. Porsche is heading for an economic low point. In 1991, the sports car manufacturer sells 23,000 vehicles, just half as many as five years earlier. At the end of 1992, the loss amounts to 240 million German marks. The low point is seen in the 1992/1993 fiscal year with sales of just 14,362 vehicles, compared with 31,235 in the 1989/1990 fiscal year. A short time later: In January 1993, the Swabians wow the public at the Detroit Motor Show with the Boxster concept car. The company seems to have reinvented itself. In addition to the 911 series, Porsche now produces the Boxster, another two-seater sports car, which is already making a strong splash in 1996 with 32,000 vehicles sold. But the company in Zuffenhausen does not rest on its laurels. That has always been the case. It is important to consider which model could complement the range in the near future. What would people be longing for in the early 2000s? A look into the crystal ball: Which vehicle could be market-appropriate? What could improve the bottom line? With a third two-door from Zuffenhausen? No, not another two-door model. The "Colorado" project is launched. A cooperation with Volkswagen, Porsche would not want to afford an off-road vehicle on its own. The requirements: powerful, off-road capable, dynamic. A five-seater family car with typical Porsche DNA.
The super SUV Urus and Aaron Durogati will face a unique challenge together. The Unlock Any Road concept of the Super SUV Urus meets the versatility of the two-time paragliding world champion Aaron Durogati, who will soon take part in the demanding Red Bull X-Alps. The 36-year-old Aaron Durogati, born in Merano, will start on June 20th in the Red Bull X-Alps, one of the toughest adventure races in the world, in which this time 33 selected participants will compete against each other over several days, all with paragliders and will be on foot (hike and fly). The aim is to pass the 1,238 kilometer long Alpine arc from Austria to Italy as quickly as possible. The race takes place in a daily time window between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m. until the last athlete has completed the course.
The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV is the first all-electric SUV to be built on MEB (the platform designed exclusively for electric vehicles) and reflects the current trends of simplicity and individualisation. The ENYAQ iV comes with rear-wheel drive (all-wheel drive is in the pipeline) and powerful electric motors for a dynamic emission-free drive with a range of more than 520 in the WLTP cycle. Besides devotees of “green” innovations, it will please those who love modern technology and driver assists, a roomy and comfortable interior crafted from quality materials, and a wide range of Simply Clever features All in all, the ENYAQ iV is a practical and comfortable electric vehicle that is just as suited to everyday life as a conventional car. ŠKODA’s first electric SUV is emotive and distinctive, yet has not lost any of the brand’s high practicality and frugality. The verticality of the grille stands out when viewed from the profile. Because of the concept behind the electric vehicle, the designers have been able to devise a short, high bonnet that continues along the heavily inclined windscreen, lending the car a dynamic silhouette and the powerful air of an SUV.
