This past August Porsche unveiled its all-new 2019 Porsche Cayenne, and a few weeks after that provided us with privileged access to the new model in Germany. Now the carmaker is making an incredible proposition to fans of the large luxury SUV and of the open road: around the world in 80 days in a new Cayenne!
It’s not the first such venture for the German luxury automaker, which has a particular penchant for organizing unique road trips for its clients. This time, the World Expedition will cover six continents and more than 30,000 km and take somewhere in the neighborhood of… 80 days, in a nod to Jules Verne and his famous story. It will start in the spring of 2018 and take participants through a host of different countries, settings and vistas, adding up to a veritable sensory smorgasbord for those taking part.
“This World Expedition is designed for avid Porsche enthusiasts seeking unique experiences with like-minded people and extreme driving challenges – people who desire an adventure that is truly priceless.”
- Catja Wiedenmann, Manager of Porsche Driving Experience at Porsche
