Aug. 30, 2017—Porsche unveiled the new 2019 Cayenne, which sports a 50:50 ratio of aluminum to high-strength steel.

Following the Porsche 911 and Panamera models, the new body of the Cayenne also uses an intelligent combination of alloy and steel. The exterior is made almost entirely of aluminum as are the floorpan assembly, front section, and virtually all the chassis components. All of the body-in-white—including the doors, roof, hood, and rear hatch—is aluminum.

The third-generation Cayenne's lighter weight chassis contributes to an overall weight savings of up to 143 lbs versus the previous generation.
