While Porsche-o-philes may have groaned when the Cayenne came to be in 2002, the sacrilegious sport ute has done nothing but help the company's bottom line. For MY2007 the Cayenne will receive its first refreshening with a new front end that incorporates a new headlight design, larger air intakes and a conspicuous front skid plate. The rear and the interior will also get a once over. Expect a hybrid version to follow a year or two later in conjunction with hybrid versions of Audi's Q7 and possibly VW's Touareg.
The website GermanCarFans is also reporting on a rumoured "Compact Cayenne" that would become the brand's fifth model after the Panamera is introduced. Based on Audi's upcoming Q5 mechanicals, this small ute would be aimed squarely at the kidney grille of BMW's X3. Just for fun the site whipped up a couple computer generated images of what a "Compact Cayenne" could look like.
