Published by on Oct 29th, 2012, No Comments

The mission to tone down the look of the Porsche Cayenne in favour of a sleeker vehicle is an exemplary example of how a first-class SUV can gain acceptance within the Porsche firmament.

Afzal Kahn insists elements borne out of diametrically opposite functions will appeal to customers far and wide. And the principal British designer insists the Kahn Porsche Cayenne exudes eccentricity, expertise and style.

The Kahn wide track aerodynamic styling package consists of vented front and rear wide wheel arches with integrated front and rear air dams, a lower boot lid spoiler, LED daytime running lights for front wheel arch vents, sports lowering module, vented foot pedals in machined aluminum, door handles finished in matte black, brake calipers finished in liquid gold, exterior Kahn enamel wing shields, privacy tinted glass, welcome ambient illumination package – under car Ice white illumination and Kahn enamel tailgate logo.
