Most Porsche Cayennes spend their lives in shopping mall parking lots and Starbucks drive-thrus, but they were built for more. The Cayenne has serious off-road potential, as this build from E-Motion Engineering demonstrates.
Detailed in a video from Hoonigan AutoFocus (via Motor1), this Cayenne is a second-generation model with the turbodiesel engine. The engine is largely untouched, although the exhaust system’s muffler was removed to improve departure angles off-road.
Not surprisingly, aftermarket off-road parts for the Cayenne were limited, so E-Motion had to rely on custom fabrication. The Cayenne sports custom bumper guards and rock rails, which are tied into the vehicle’s structure. The pieces were designed not only to protect against damage, but to serve as anchor points for recovery gear. A 3/16-inch aluminum skid plate protects the Cayenne’s belly.
