Porsche Planning on a Larger SUV to Sit Above the Cayenne

The only question is: Can even Porsche make a 3-row SUV a Porsche?


  • The SUV may offer three rows of seating.

  • It’s expected by the mid-2020s.


Porsche is known globally as the sports car maker par excellence. That definition was rocked when the German car company launched the Cayenne nearly 20 years ago. Today, all is forgiven and forgotten as if Porsche continues as an extremely successful automaker, it’s thanks to the midsize SUV. Now, it looks as though they once more will shock the car community and this time with an even larger SUV.

In true Porsche fashion, however, the new SUV won’t look like a typical family hauler. The longer, larger, and wider SUV, when compared to the Cayenne, is described as being part sedan, part crossover, and with a rakish design. These details were given by a Porsche dealer but the automaker won’t comment much beyond the following:

“We’re grateful for such creativity within our business, as we’re continually exploring new opportunities and where we might compete in the future,” the Porsche spokesman said to Automotive News. “Whether these go any further than renderings and ideas to make it to the production stage — let alone how they will be powered or configured — is undecided.”

As blasphemous as a Porsche 3-row SUV might seem, it’s a sadly logical step for the automaker. Beyond the Cayenne, families must shop elsewhere in order to fulfill their needs. This new larger SUV could be related to the Volkswagen Group’s plans to introduce a new flagship EV for Audi, Bentley, and Porsche.

This new unnamed SUV is expected around 2025 or thereabouts.
