Project Kahn rolls out more tuning programs for some of the most desirable cars on the market than any other aftermarket company we know. So when the Frankfurt Motor Show rolled around, it was expected that the British tuning company would be in attendance to show off their latest programs.

One of these is the new Vesuvius program for the Porsche Cayenne. Comprising of styling and engine updates, the Vesuvius kit once again showcases just how good these guys are at what they do.

The most noticeable upgrade for this particular Cayenne is the new body kit that seamlessly blends in with the car’s white body finish. Among the items included in the kit are buffed up fenders, rows of horizontal and vertical LED headlights, and a new set of Project Kahn’s very own RS wheels. Meanwhile, the interior of the Cayenne has been dressed up with a top-quality bespoke treatment that can be tailor-made depending on the customer’s preference.

As for the engine upgrade, Project Kahn has yet to divulge intimate details about it, opting only to say that it’s going to have a ’monstrous’ engine upgrade. In standard form, the Cayenne carries a 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel engine that delivers 240 horsepower and 405 lb/ft of torque. These figures are good enough for the SUV to accelerate from 0-62 mph in 7.8 seconds with a top speed of 136 mph. We can only imagine just how much of an improvement in performance the Porsche SUV will receive when Project Kahn finally reveals that ’monstrous’ engine upgrade they guaranteed it will have.

David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I don’t think that its V6 engine could already give a nice and awesome speed performance on this. However, I’m so fond with the Vesuvius kit of this Cayenne, and it really looks cool and stunning on that.

I’m really impressed with Project Kahn designs! They are truly great in redesigning a simple car and turned into a fabulous and awesome car! smiley but I must say that I’m kind of disappointed on its 240 HP.

I agree with you Sweet Chevy. SUV look likes a cheaper car. However, SUV is one of the best cars and its worth it. SUV car is very common because many passengers can sit.

Cayenne is absolutely looks so simple for a face lift version, but I can say that I’m still so fond with it. I love the fact that it’s very reliable on the road because on its decent appearance. smiley

V6 turbo diesel with 240 horsepower is I think quite impressive for this car. Even though it only had a simple platform and styling, I’m still impressed with the decent appearance of it, and it looks very appealing for that.

I can’t wait to know the other details about this one, most especially the other specs. Of it. When will really the market production of this or its debut? Anyway, I’m really so fond with this Cayenne!

I’m impressed with the decency of this Cayenne Vesuvius, I just hope that they include also some of the interior features of this car. Anyway, the V6 turbo diesel is quite impressive for this car. smiley However, I’m still looking forward to know the other details of it.

Not so my type of car, though it look the car blended on its simple white and tinted window. In terms of quality I guess it better to see version of this.

I love the decency of this Cayenne, well Project Kahn is really the best for me when it comes in detailing a car. I just hope that the engine that it had is just enough for an impressive car like this.

yeah, this car is nice, but I’m not used to see Porsche having a hatchback SUV car it look like a cheaper one.

This car has 240 horse power and V6 turbo diesel. I think the horse power, and engine is enough for this kind of Volkswagen car. However, this car has a good performance.
