NEXT STAGE: New in 2026
Porsche is expanding its lineup for the first time since the Macan launched in 2014 with a plus-size three-row EV.
The range-topping model positioned above the Cayenne is code-named K1 and could arrive in the U.S. as early as 2026.
Porsche execs showed U.S. dealers a vehicle rendering last year.
One retailer described it as a “new style of vehicle that is part sedan, part crossover” with a “rakish” profile.
“It’s very un-Porsche-like,” said another dealer. “It has a flat rear design; it’s not anything like the Macan and Cayenne.”
Porsche said the new model will incorporate technology from the Mission R presented last year at the Munich auto show. In addition to a new high-performance battery, the Mission R also had a 920-volt electrical system to reduce charging times. The K1 will also include the direct oil-cooled electric motor found in the Mission R.
