Tamiya 57769 Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia 2007

With recent announcements about new Tamiya items for the upcoming Tokyo Hobby Show, the most important information about most of the new models is readily available. However, at the time of writing this, finding information about the item number 57769, generally known as “XB SUV” in several forums, is rather difficult. So I thought this link might be of interest.

The German technical description indicates that it will not be based on the XC/CC-01 chassis like the Touareg, ………………… See update below!

Translation of the most interesting information:

4WD with centrally mounted propellershaft. Impact proof plastic bathtub chassis. 540 Motor, Electronic speed control TEU-101 BK. All-Terrain tires. 4 wheel independent suspension. Spurgear and pinion protected against debris.

Update Oct. 12th, now confirmed: The Cayenne will get the same chassis as the Hummer, which means basicly TA01 with longer suspension arms tierods and driveshafts, rear arms being “stretched” backwards to extend wheelbase to 280mm. By the way, nice to see the meanwhile relatively rare tires of the Honda CR-V getting a new life!
