2015 Porsche Cajun to sport 2-door body design

It seems that our speculation as to the 2015 Porsche Cajun's body design has just been proven right. Well, maybe not exactly proven, but, at least, German car magazine AutoBild has just published a small article regarding the upcoming super-compact crossover SUV from the major German brand.

According to the magazine, the baby-Cayenne will share its components with the Audi Q5, but will feature smaller wheelbase, shorter overhangs both on front and the rear parts of the body and, surprise, will sport a 2-door body design (well, it is probably more correct to call this layout a three-door if we include the rear hatch.)

As we have already guessed, the Cajun will be targeted against the two-door version of the new Ranger Rover Evoque tiny SUV.

The Porsche Cajun will come to the European market in 2013 and will share its plush interior with the soon to be delivered next generation Boxster entry-luxury compact sports car. Also, it is known that the new vehicle will not share a single body part with the Q5, since the sheet-metal, plastic parts, LED front and tail lights will be developed by the notorious Porsche Design studio.

The car will also have its own braking system and will be available with a choice of four engines mated to either a manual gearbox or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The engines in question are a 2.0-liter TFSI (240 PS / 350 Nm); 3.0-liter TFSI (292 Nm PS / 400 Nm); 2.0-liter TDI (190 PS / 350 Nm) and 3.0-liter TDI with 265 horsepower and 500 Newton-meters of torque that will provide the small Cajun with an ICBM-style acceleration and unrivaled elasticity on the motor way.
