Walter de’Silva, Volkswagen’s designer extraordinaire, is regarded as one of the foremost auto designers in the world, and now he’s got a new challenge in hand: designing the new Porsche Cajun SUV.
The new SUV, which will be slotted just below the Cayenne, is expected to hit dealerships in 2014, giving de’Silva and Porsche design director Michael Mauer some time to come up with a fresh new SUV that they’re planning to design in the image and liking of old Porsche models.
Given that Porsche has high hopes for the Cajun, it goes without saying that de’Silva will have his hands full with the design of the SUV. Not that he’s worried or anything, especially since he’s, well, Walter de’Silva.
When the SUV does end up in dealerships, it is expected to compete with a number of new SUVs in the market, including the BMW X3 and the soon-to-be-released Range Rover Evoque.
