2008 JE Design Porsche Cayenne
About This Car
JE DESIGN, previously well known for its modifications of models from the VW Group, is now including another brand in its tuning range. THE sports car brand of all time: Porsche. Thanks to its experience with upmarket SUVs such as the VW Touareg and the Audi Q7, it was an easy step for JE DESIGN to provide the Porsche Cayenne with a new outfit and give it a more original appearance.
The JE DESIGN styling program for the Porsche Cayenne (957 model) comprises at the front end a spoiler that gives the SUV a significantly more muscular look, with a centre segment that is particularly effective when its bottom section is painted in a different color. The JE DESIGN component is a perfect fit, and integrates ideally into the rest of the design. It also includes LED daytime running lights, which not only enhance the looks of the vehicle but also crucially improve safety. Because "seeing and being seen" prevents accidents. Headlight masks ensure that the headlights no longer stand out with such dominance above the cooling air inlets. By means of this relatively minor design stratagem, JE DESIGN manages to bring additional sporty flair to the front aspect, since the front end also now seems lower.
And of course a facelifted Porsche Cayenne also needs a suitably elegant conclusion. This is provided by JE DESIGN in the form of an extended rear apron with diffuser styling, so that the individualized appearance of the Cayenne's rear is also more appealing. As in the case of the original apron, the JE DESIGN component also has room on the left and right for the exhaust tailpipes. As a replacement for these, JE DESIGN also offers its own dual oval tailpipes made of stainless steel, which fit perfectly into the apertures.
JE DESIGN offers the parts as complete styling kit (tailpipes separately). In a second step, JE DESIGN offers the kit including LED entry lights, each with five LED light units fitted in the right and left-hand door sills, plus a six-light LED unit mounted on the extended rear apron.
The muscular appearance of the Cayenne as styled by JE DESIGN is emphasized even further by JE DESIGN SUV-Select wheels. This wheel, especially developed for motoring heavyweights, sports a sturdy, timeless, five-spoke design. JE DESIGN offers it for the Porsche Cayenne in the magnificent size of 10x22˝ ET 55 (5x130 hole pattern). The one-piece cast wheel is available from JE DESIGN in the "shadow silver / polished face" version or alternatively in "matt black / matt silver face". Naturally JE DESIGN also supplies sets of complete wheels, in which the SUV-Select wheel is equipped with 295/30 R22 XL tires.
JE DESIGN does not just stop at external cosmetics. In order to make the heavyweight more agile, the tuning specialists have lowered the body and thus the Porsche Cayenne’s center of gravity by about 35 mm, with the aid of an electronic lowering module. JE DESIGN also has the answer for vehicles with conventional suspension. In this case, stainless steel coilover suspension with adjustable compression and rebound mode delivers 30- to 70-mm lowering and decidedly sporty handling to match the car's exterior. Alternatively, JE DESIGN offers a set of lowering springs for this
To give the Porsche Cayenne a sportier makeover inside as well, JE DESIGN is currently preparing various visual carbon treatments for the interior components of the upmarket SUV.
