    Porsche has finally uncovered the 2011 Cayenne S Hybrid after three years of waiting. The 2010 Geneva Motor Show plays host to the redesigned crossover while the auto show in New York this coming April will be its North American debut.

    The Porsche Cayenne Hybrid is about 400 pounds lighter than its older sibling which ruled between 2003 and 2010. It also boasts of better fuel mileage.

    Unlike the Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid which shares the platform with the Cayenne, Porsche decides to keep the V-8 options for its engines. The entry level Cayenne will have a V-6 3.6L that can give out 300 horsepower coupled with a triptonic automatic gearbox.

    The S Hybrid is packed with 333 hp drawn from supercharged 3.0L V6 coupled with a 47 hp electric motor. Combine the two and you will have an impressive 427 ft lb of torque at 1,000 rpm. Talk about power which can make the S Hybrid king of stoplight racing.

    The top of the line Cayenne S will sport the V8. One can give out 400 hp while the Cayenne Turbo can output 500 hp. Though more powerful, these two versions are 23% more fuel efficient than the older Cayenne.
