The Porsche Museum in Stuttgart was the backdrop for the world premiere of the 3rd-generation Cayenne. It's about 6 cm longer, 1 cm flatter and noticeably more dynamic than its predecessor. It's powered by 6-cylinder engines of either 340 or 440 hp.
Chief Executive Oliver Blume has said the sports carmaker will focus on petrol/gasoline, hybrid and all-electric vehicles. Porsche and its parent Volkswagen have seen their image take a beating in the wake of Dieselgate.

Automakers at the Frankfurt car show, IAA, have been highlighting their e-auto credentials and distancing themselves from Dieselgate. But how will this impact the European car industry and its 12.6 million employees?
