Module 1: Gravel track

Slush or mud: the loosely applied gravel simulates both at the same time. Getting bogged down? Could happen – unless you drive smoothly. Driving style: at constant speed.

Module 2: Sand track

We send you off into the desert. At least for a short section. The challenge: sand half a meter deep, which you have to cross. Getting bogged down - virtually impossible, thanks to the Porsche Traction Management System (PTM). Driving style: keep it steady.

Module 3: Log course simulation

Nobody normally gets in your way? We’ll try it anyway. With various concrete cylinders, which represent a serious obstacle. Driving style: calm and cautious.

Module 4: Steep ascent

How do you handle an 80 % incline? With 100 % courage. An extreme challenge to the driver – not to mention the passenger. How will you pass this test of your nerve? With the electronically controlled Porsche four-wheel drive system. Driving style: slow and very careful.

Module 5: Wading trough

This is where you take off. Piles of stone displaced to the left and right of each other tilt the vehicle across its lateral axis, with diagonally opposite wheels hanging in the air. Driving style: in slow motion and with care.

Module 6: Rocky climb

The only way up? The stairway. The way down: just the same. Are the wheels losing contact with the ground? No problem. The Porsche Hill Control will smooth the way. Driving style: walking pace.

Module 7: Woodland section

This forest drive is no walk in the park. The terrain is uneven and sandy. Various piles of stone and a diagonal slope with a 30° incline and 25° tilt also make the course interesting. Driving style: slow and with foresight.

Module 8: Slanting section

Now things really began to tilt! Here you need to concentrate and keep your nerve, because the vehicle leans well over to one side: by 25° on the straight and by as much as 35° in the curve. Passengers - hold on tight! Driving style: slow and controlled.

Module 9: Ramp crossing

A steady hand is required here, because the course gets tight. The track: narrow. The ground: slippery. Precision is the watchword here. Driving style: slow in order to avoid bottoming out.

Module 10: Bunker crossings

Time to hold on tight. Crossing the old bunkers on the course means a bumpy ride. The drive: all ups and downs. The visibility: limited. Driving style: nice and steady.

Module 11: Field track

Go for it. Across marshy ground. Around bends. Through slush and mud. Driving style: brisk along the straight sections, carefully controlled through the bends.

Module 12: Hilly section with tank bridge

Nothing but ups and downs – only the fun of driving remains the same. On the way: a tank bridge which has to be conquered. Driving style: brisk, except when crossing the tank bridge.

Module 13: Muddy track

Solid ground beneath your wheels? Forget it. Keeping the vehicle straight? Virtually impossible. The challenge is keeping the car under control in deep mud. Driving style: slow but steady.

Module 14: Corduroy road

Here we put obstacles in your way. To be more precise: logs of wood for you to drive over. Tracks don't come any rougher, but the Porsche Automatic Brake Differential (ABD) helps to smooth out the bumps. Driving style: cautious and slow.

Module 15: Water ditch

Keep doors and windows tightly closed, because a 50 cm deep and 100 meter long ditch is waiting for you. The special design of the Cayenne’s bodywork makes sure that you don't get wet. Driving style: taking it easy.

Grazing paddock

At Porsche Leipzig, protecting the environment is practised not preached - using a unique grazing concept. Safely separated from the actual off-road track, wild horses and aurochs live here in an ecological paradise.

Porsche off-road track

15 special tests
6 kilometers round course
0 boredom


In Leipzig you can discover the performance of Porsche cars on asphalt on the Porsche on-road circuit. With the Cayenne you can also test the other extreme: the off-road track. You'll soon notice: a 6-kilometre stretch can pack a lot of challenges.

Have you ever tried to drive through a 100-metre long water ditch? Are you brave enough to face an extreme ramp with a 80% gradient? If so, take up the challenge - on our off-road track.

Don't be surprised if a few wild horses or aurochs suddenly cross your line of vision. They are part of a unique grazing concept and, as our conservation managers, keep overgrowth in check in the off-road terrain in a natural, environmentally-friendly way.
