Like every Cayenne before, it has both Porsche and Volkswagen internal codes: 9Y0 and 9YA.
Before the launch of the 9Y0 version, more than 760.000 Cayennes (955, 957, 958.1, 958.2) were made. The design of the Cayenne 958 (958.1 2010-2014, 958.2 2014-2017) was so good that the 9Y0 is not a revolution, but - typically to Porsche - an evolution. All exterior panels are now of aluminium and many structural body parts aswell. Despite the 2.5"/63 mm longer body and larger wheels (19" now smallest size plus rear wheels and tyres wider than fronts), the base version lost 55 kg/121 lb compared to the 958.2. The optional air suspension now is the 3-chamber system, which makes the ride more comfortable than before. Rear-axle steering is available for the first time - reduced turning circle makes handling of the SUV easier. PDCC (Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control) system is now electric instead of hydraulic. This was made possible by a 48-volt electrical system. The base version is now fitted with LED headlights as standard, but PDLS (Porsche Dynamic Light System) cornering lights are still optional. The PDLS+ LED Matrix headlights are the best system available. Fully variable light distribution and intensity are enabled by 84 individually activated LEDs - the high beam does not glare opposing traffic, as well as there is adaptive sign glare control. Night Vision Assist comes with a thermal imaging camera.
PSCB Porsche Surface Coated Brakes
The wolfram-carbide coated cast-iron brake discs are the world first. To make the PSCB, a gray-iron disc is laser-processed to offer structure, then galvanized with an interlayer. The interlayer acts like a flexible bond to relieve the differential thermal extension of gray iron and tungsten carbide. The latter is applied in a spectacular manner: a high-velocity oxy-fuel spraying process shoots tungsten carbide particles at the disc at supersonic speeds. The result is a coating of just 10 nanometers thick. The surface of the discs develops a unique gloss level after bedding-in. This super hard and super smooth mirror-like surface needs very special adhesive brake pads. The brake calipers are white to show that the PSCB does not produce brake dust. Like with PCCB, the PSCB brake calipers are 10-pot on front axle (4-pot at the rear). Front discs have a diameter of 16.3"/415 mm and rear ones 14.3"/365 mm. PSCB does not replace the more expensive PCCB ceramic brakes (17.3"/440 mm front, 16.1"/410 mm rear). The Porsche Surface Coated Brakes are standard on V8-engined Cayenne Turbo and as an option on all V6 Cayenne versions.
