Doesn’t it seem as though the veteran sports car manufacturers are hanging up their speedy baseball caps and whipping out some family-oriented fedoras? What’s worse is that at the top of the list of manufacturers selling out on the game is our beloved Porsche. Their most recent family-mover catastrophe is the Porsche Panamera, but before that was their first take on the family vehicle: the Porsche Cayenne. Now the Cayenne is getting a little pint-sized brother called the Porsche Cajun, and it seems as if all hell is breaking loose on the go-fast front.

Should we be this upset with Porsche? After all, the Cajun is ready to roll with a 3.0-liter V-6 producing 290 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. There might even be a Cajun Turbo S with a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 in the works. This setup is rated at 350 hp. Each model will come with Porsche’s typical add-ons such as the Sport Chrono pack with launch control, excellent brakes with optional carbon-ceramic discs, wheels and tires, and a complete exhaust system including a switchable free-flow sport muffler.

Well, maybe we shouldn’t be all that upset. After all, people should be able to get their kids to school while also having their fun on the weekends. But if Porsche comes out with a pick-up truck called the Hot Tamale, we’re taking our business elsewhere. Until then, we’ll try to keep an open mind when it comes to the Cajun.

Check out our rendering of the 2013 Porsche Cajun, and let us know what you think of Porsche’s most recent ode to the family in the comments section below!

I have heard that Porsche have made a modification and upgrade on this vehicle. Let’s just hope that it will sell now. BTW, I want to know their future plan for this model.

Its really a good thing that Cajun’s production is active again.. I thought the Porsche has already killed this model. The small version SUV is quite rare model. I hope that they will have a better sale percentage this time.

First I thought they are killing this production but its glad to hear that its back! I still don’t what are the details but I have a feeling that it would be gone better. However, I want to see this car used a more modern technology.

Glad to say that Porsche has a active production for the Cajun. Well, it seems that they are planning to pursue the smaller version of SUV! Let’s hope that this second time around it would be successful.

Yes, same thought goes with me. And it makes me wonder on what will happen to the current production of the Cayenne? I’m afraid that it would hurt the sale of either of the two.

Well, I thought they are going to kill this production since a small SUV version doesn’t hit on the market. However, just recently I have read about the come back of this model and this time they have made it even better.

Seriously, this car need to be rendered. Just look at the sale of this car its far from its predecessor the Cayenne. Comparing the two, Cajun really needs to be modified.

Well, I find it kind of wrong move for the Porsche. How will the Cajun increase in sale if its predecessor still on the way.

@james_patron : Yeah, I certainly agree on you. Just recently, there’s a modification for the Cayenne so I guess its been the favorite among tuning company.

I think you do hope that some tuner company would makes this car more powerful compare what it has right now. However, the current production is pointless in my opinion.

I want to see its more powerful performance after the rendering. Never let us down Cajun!Try to upgrade the technology being used.

  (708) posted on 04.5.2011

Yes, you are right james_patron,i was thinking the same. However, i do believe that this car would be more powerful compare to its predecessor someday.

Ever since the Cajun come out, I have read a lot of tease and comparison between Cayenne and Cajun, Cayenne specs is much better and besides I don’t think that 3.0-liter V-6 producing 290 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque,is a good figures for the growing and tough competition in the auto market.

Yup, they will probably be going to have problems marketing the Cajun. Though the car is really that great, not a lot of folks will go for it if the Cayenne is already there.

  (647) posted on 03.3.2011

This really doesn’t look that much different from the current Cajun model, except maybe for a few trimmings. I do hope that they upped the specs for the 2013 model.

I really am having a hard time believing this is true, and I have no idea how they plan to make it profitable at a lower price point than the already cheap V6 Cayenne..

I’ve been with the Porsche brand for 6 months now, and have seen first hand just how important the brand reputation is to it’s customers.
