A clip of the pedal bearing bracket could be missing.

Volkswagen and Porsche recall Touareg and Cayenne worldwide because a clip in the pedal assembly could be missing.

Top Gear stages a three-way, quarter-mile drag race against the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR, and Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT.

Techart isn't one for subtlety, but its Geneva Motor Show offerings run the gamut from tasteful to deliciously vulgar. Oh, and they're both very, very fast.

Plan Includes Software Update And New Catalytic Converter

Porsche thinks that updated software and a new catalytic converter should be enough to make the diesel Cayenne emissions compliant, but the company has to wait for regulators to approve the repair plan.

It was a year of weird recalls and tiny repair campaigns. Now that it's nearly over, let’s look back at five of the most bizarre recalls of 2015.

As the diesel scandal expands to the VW Group's 3.0-liter V6 engine, Porsche stops selling the diesel-powered Cayenne.

Volkswagen admits that 11 million diesel vehicles worldwide could have software capable of avoiding emissions compliance. The EPA is now checking the 3.0-liter V6 in Porsche and Audi models to make sure it's not affected as well.

More Than Just A Sporty SUV

The Porsche Cayenne S gets a new 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 for 2015. We take one out for a spin in California to see if it's still as engaging as the old V8 model.

Porsche's GT division discounts the possibility of going after rival automakers' performance crossovers with hardcore versions of the Cayenne or Macan. In fact it wants nothing to do with all-wheel drive altogether, even as it embraces turbocharging and dual-clutch transmissions.

A problem with leaky fuel injection systems has prompted the NHTSA to issue recall notices for the VW Touareg, Porsche hybrids and a smattering of Audis.

Porsche may be getting rid of the V8 diesel option for the Cayenne SUV because upgrading to comply with European emissions standards is pricey.

Emerging sibling rivalry between Porsche and Bentley could see an epic battle royale erupt over who makes the fastest SUV in the land, with the upcoming Bentayga already touted as the fastest in the world and the next Cayenne promising to be even faster.

Porsche knows that to keep up, a model has to keep evolving. For the latest 2015 evolution of the Cayenne Turbo S on display at the Detroit Auto Show, it now packs integral turbos housed directly in the exhaust manifolds. The move allows power to grow to 562 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, while shedding a half-second off the sprint to 60. The German brand also claims that the improved version can lap the Nurburgring Nordschleife in a blink less than eight minutes.

In what is surely one of the smallest (and most pedantically German) recalls we've seen yet from a major automaker, Porsche is recalling a grand total of two 2015 Cayennes to have their suspension bolts tightened.

The Turbo may be the most powerful model in the Cayenne range, but the GTS is arguably the enthusiast's choice. (In so far as a 4,500-pound crossover can be considered an "enthusiast's choice," anyway.) And now, after refreshing the rest of the Cayenne lineup, Porsche has revealed the new Cayenne GTS, alongside its new 911 GTS stablemate, here at the LA Auto Show.

Porsche unveiled a slew of refreshed Cayennes just a few months ago, but the base model (right) and high-performance GTS trim (above) were conspicuously absent from that list. There's no more reason to wonder about them, though, because the German brand plans to unveil both at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show on November 19.

Creamy Complex Powertrain Delivers The E-Assisted Goods

Think of the electric motor in the facelifted 2015 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid as the cream filling in an Oreo cookie. Under the hood of this plug-in hybrid crossover is a 333-horsepower, supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with a 95-hp synchronous electric motor sandwiched between it and an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission. The clutched powertrain allows pure combustion, pure electric or a combination of both to drive all four wheels through Porsche's permanent all-wheel-drive system.

This is how we imagine the conversation went in Porsche's Stuttgart headquarters: "Martini livery. Martini livery all the things." Okay, so maybe not, but that hasn't stopped Porsche from showing off images of most of its lineup bearing the iconic racing livery.

38

China has already surpassed the United States as the world's largest automotive market, so it's no surprise that one day soon it will be the world's largest Porsche market.

Which automaker offers the greatest variety of plug-in hybrids? Nope, it's not Toyota. Not GM either. It's not Ford, not Honda and not BMW. Believe it or not, it's Porsche. And this is its latest, presented at the Paris Motor Show.
