2011 Porsche Ratings, Reviews and Awards

With the introduction of the second-generation Porsche Cayenne SUV in 2011, Porsche silenced critics who questioned the wisdom of introducing an SUV to the lineup. The 2011 Cayenne weighs 400 pounds less than its predecessor, has better fuel economy, and most importantly, has more power. 2011 also brought along a hybrid Cayenne model with a 3.0-liter, supercharged V6-based hybrid engine. The hybrid got 24 mpg/highway, a slight improvement over the non-hybrid, 3.6-liter V6 engine's 23 mpg/highway (with an automatic transmission). Porsche also paid some attention to its contribution to the sedan segment in 2011. The 2011 Panamera luxury sedan featured the option of a 300-hp V6 engine. The V6 is Porsche-built and has a lot in common with the 4.8-liter V8 offered on the Panamera S. The big difference is the subtraction of two cylinders. Also notable about the V6 is the positioning of those six cylinders, which are arranged at less than a 90-degree angle and balanced with a shaft.
