About the Porsche Cayenne:


The Porsche Cayenne was developed in 2001 and came to the U.S. as a 2003 model. The Cayenne premiered as a four-door five-passenger wagon with standard V-8 power, six-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission, and dual-range four-wheel drive, plus a host of unexpected SUV features.

There were two Porsche Cayenne models at first, the Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo. Both used a basic 4.5-liter engine originally developed for the stillborn Porsche 989 luxury-sedan project. It was a high-tech V-8 with twin overhead camshafts operating four valves per cylinder, plus cylinder block, cylinder heads and pistons all rendered in weight-saving aluminum alloy. As on Porsche's latest water-cooled flat-six engines, the block incorporated dry-sump lubrication, while Porsche's VarioCam system adjusted intake-valve timing and lift to bolster both low-speed torque and high-end power. Other premium features included "distributor-less" on-coil ignition, sequential port fuel injection, oiling jets to cool the pistons, and a Bosch Motronic ME 7.1.1 engine computer with "e-gas" electronic throttle control instead of an old-fashioned mechanical linkage. The big difference in the Turbo engine, of course, was a pair of power-boosting exhaust-gas compressors with intercoolers. Running a 9.5:1 compression ratio, it mustered a mighty 450 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 457 pound-feet of torque at 2250-4750 rpm. Power was apportioned between axles by a center differential with multiple clutch plates that could be locked for maximum traction. The normal power split was 38 percent front/62 percent rear, this to approximate the power delivery and handling response of a rear-drive Porsche sports car. By contrast, the related VW Touareg and other SUVs either used a normal 50/50 split or were biased toward the front wheels.

The Porsche Cayenne's first notable change came with introduction of a V-6 base model as an early model-year 2005 offering. Under the hood was a 3.2-liter version of partner Volkswagen's "VR6" engine, a narrow-angle design with iron block and four valves per cylinder (and also offered in the Volkswagen Touareg SUV). Outputs were 247 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 229 pound-feet of torque at 2500.

In 2010 Porsche introduced the Cayenne Hybrid S, which has an "inline configuration" where the electric motor sits between the gas engine and transmission/clutch assembly, rather than off to the side. The company says it chose this arrangement as being more "compatible" with the Cayenne platform--and also more fuel-efficient in testing, according to a press release. Porsche, however, goes two steps further with an electrically operated brake booster and transmission oil pump. The hybrid system adds a modest 310 pounds or so to the normal V6 Cayenne's 4,762-pound curb weight. That includes the 88-pound "Hybrid Manager," claimed to be the most powerful computer ever used in a vehicle.


Common P orsche Cayenne Replacement Parts:

Porsche Cayenne Drive Shaft / Cardan Shaft Upgrade 

The Porsche Cayenne is notorious for Drive / Cardan Shaft failures.  The most common culprits of Drive Shaft noises, and subsequent premature failure, are either a worn center support dampener, or a faulty center support bearing. You may be experiencing undetermined noises from your Porsche Cayenne and are unaware they are related to the Drive Shaft. We have outlined the most common noises and causes below:


- A clanking or clunking noise while transitioning from acceleration to deceleration or from deceleration to acceleration is typically the result of a worn / damaged dampener or diaphragm located on the center support bearing. This condition will allow for the drive shaft to travel up and down with variations in drive line torque. This movement will produce a loud clanking or clunking sound and make for a very uncomfortable ride. This condition is one of the most common failures on the Cayenne drive shaft.


- A whining noise from the drive shaft is sometimes caused by a dry, worn center support bearing. Since this bearing makes complete revolutions, it will make a different sound than a bad center support bearing dampener. A high-pitched, more constant whine will usually come from a faulty, broken or worn center support bearing.


- Grinding and squealing from the drive shaft is usually caused by a worn constant velocity joint (CV Joint). When the joint becomes dry and un-lubricated, the balls that make up the bearing wear and come out of round; these damaged and un-lubed ball rollers will produce a grinding and/or squealing sound.


We at have a solution for the failure prone factory units. We offer a Fully Upgraded and Rebuilt Drive Shaft with an unparalleled warranty!

Porsche Cayenne S & Turbo Coolant Pipe Repair / Upgrade Kit


Another Achilles heel to the 2003-2007, V8 Cayenne models is the plastic used in the cooling pipes. Over time, the plastic pipes used to carry the coolant become dry and brittle. This deterioration more often than not, leads to cracked coolant pipes and overheated engines. In responses to this widespread problem, Porsche developed a fix. Replace the plastic pipes with upgraded aluminum. We then took this fix a step further by assembling a thorough, all inclusive kit to remedy this fault permanently. Our kit replaces the plastic pipes with all new factory aluminum pipes. Our 16 piece kit makes the job easy and complete.
