Bridgestone to equip new Porsche Cayenne
with flagship Dueler H/P Sport
· Two sizes of Dueler H/P to be fitted to the new Porsche Cayenne
· Dueler H/P Sport was fully designed and developed at the Bridgestone European Technical Centre
· Mixed size tyres offer improved stability and driving dynamics
Bridgestone has been selected by Porsche to be a supplier of tyres for the third generation Porsche Cayenne. The Dueler H/P Sport which is being fitted for both 19 and 20 inch wheels was fully developed at the Bridgestone European Technical Centre in Rome. The tyres will be produced at the Bridgestone plant in Poznan, Poland.
This is a notable return for Bridgestone as an original equipment fitment on Porsche. The new Porsche Cayenne builds on 15 years of success and the new model has already undergone a complex and challenging series of examinations. While this is an SUV, it features a typical sports car feature with the new mixed size tyres, which are now on wheels of at least 19 inches. The mixed tyres improve stability and driving dynamics on bends. The original equipment Bridgestone tyres will be marked with N0 on the side wall.
Christophe De Valroger, Vice President, OE Europe said: “We are very proud to have been selected as a supplier for this iconic vehicle. Completing this development for one of the most demanding worldwide auto manufacturers is for us a great recognition. This is a fantastic illustration of the quality of our products, our leadership in tyre technologies, and the strength of our partnership with Porsche.”
