Porsche Cayenne CKD – 1,000th unit rolls off Sime Darby’s assembly facility in Kulim, Kedah; fr RM575k

The 1,000th locally-assembled (CKD) Porsche Cayenne has rolled off the production line at Sime Darby’s assembly plant in Kulim, Kedah, Porsche Malaysia recently announced on its official Facebook page.

This comes just a little over a year and two months after the initial CKD unit of the SUV exited the German brand’s first local assembly facility outside of Europe last March. The assembled-in-Malaysia Cayenne was launched here in November 2021 at a price of RM550,000, with the figure being inclusive of taxes and duties but excludes on-the-road fees, any options and insurance.

Offered in its base version, the CKD Cayenne was RM115,000 less than its CBU counterpart, but keep in mind that asking price also factored in the full sales tax exemption for CKD vehicles that was active at the time. According to Porsche Malaysia’s website, the retail price has since been revised to RM575,000 starting from July 1, 2022.

The Cayenne is powered by a 3.0 litre turbocharged V6 petrol engine that puts out 340 PS (335 hp) at 5,300 to 6,400 rpm and 450 Nm of torque at 1,340 to 5,300 rpm. The mill is mated to an eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission and an active all-wheel drive system, allowing for a 0-100 km/h time of 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 245 km/h. The SUV also comes with adaptive air suspension that includes Porsche Active Suspension Management.

Standard equipment that comes with the SUV include four-zone climate control, Comfort Access Park Assist with front, rear and surround views, 14-way power-adjustable comfort seats with memory function, LED headlamps with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), LED taillights, four-zone climate control, Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with a 12-inch touchscreen, Porsche Connect services and Apple CarPlay integration, ambient lighting as well as a Bose surround sound system.

Colour options remain at three, with Carrara White Metallic and Quartzite Grey Metallic being returning hues, while Chromite Black Metallic replaces the previous Jet Black Metallic. Meanwhile, the two interior leather themes – Black and a two-tone Black-Bordeaux Red – remain unchanged.

Customers will continue to be able to specify additional packages, including the Exclusive Manufaktur that adds on a SportsDesign styling package (unique front apron and more pronounced wheel arch extensions), a sports exhaust system, dark-tinted lighting clusters, LED door projectors with the brand logo and a key fob that matches the exterior colour for RM52,000 (previously RM58,000).

Also available are accessories from the Porsche Tequipment range like a luggage net (RM536), boot liner (RM842), all-weather floor mats (RM1,027), car care products (RM1,095) and a bicycle rack (RM3,032), while a personalised Porsche Design timepiece can be had for RM38,888.

          Azminkor under PKR made Selangor unlivable but under PN hen has performed well. Time to bring back PN if we want our country to progress.

            Yes, Selangor is more liveable now after he lost his Gombak seat, but the Germans don’t care as long as Porsche continues to profit from wealthy Malaysians.

  • No longer available for sale as the facelift is due in Msia by year end / q1 2024. I’ve one on order since sept 2022 and still waiting. They’ve also stopped taking orders to clear backlog. Facelift expected to be around 600k +-. Told my SA to push my order to the facelift instead since I’ve waited so long.

        This CKD assembly operation is actually about Malaysians being ordered around by Germans from Porsche (nothing to do with China) to assemble now up to 1000 cars for rich people. So how can this be the ‘Malaysian team spirit’? It is just another profitable business operation for the foreigners.

      Lotus sold around 1700 car in 2022. Not in Malaysia, but worldwide. So 1000 cars in the first year are not that bad?

      What kind of national of achievement? Porsche is German, not Malaysian, and the average Malaysian can’t afford their cars. In addition, it’s just a CKD assembly plant. Malaysia already has Proton & Perodua which make cars out raw materials like metal sheets. Be proud of that.

        Mercedes is theoretically “chinese” now and before it was “quatarian” (main share holders).

        Your nationalistic views are so outdated…

          This news article is about Porsche, but now there is also the mention of Mercedes-Benz in the comments. Both companies were founded in Germany by Germans. Today they are public listed in the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, and they happen to have their headquarters in the same city of Stuttgart, staffed mostly by Germans. Thus it isn’t like they are less German just because they have some non-German shareholders.
