Porsche's Cayenne is starting to show its age. With the arrival of the Panamera, it's no longer the most controversial looking vehicle in the company's product portfolio, though its road-scorching edge remains undiminished in turbo form. A new Cayenne is coming in gas, diesel, and hybrid flavors, and a fresh spy shot has surfaced showing what may well be the reshaped keister of the next model.
It's got a bit of Volkswagen in it, maybe, but check those wheels and the way the lower valance is a diffusery thing - very Porsche-esque. If it is the Cayenne, this next generation might actually look okay while it continues to defy physics. Before we get too vitriolic, the Cayenne's volume has helped make 911s and Caymans possible – and for that, we say thank you.

      this is definitely a touareg

      porsche doesn't split their lights between tail gates and quarters... plus the design language matches the CC pretty closely.

        Or maybe Porsche could be trying something new?

        " I think VW will use rounder inserts like on the tiguan"

        Yup, and VW already has the tiguan, making any vw speculation moot. The only two CUVs being run around right now in development guise are the new Cayenne (to be based on the Q5 architecture) and the Q3. So this will be one or the other but not a VW branded car.

        I think its a porsche - its got the proper tailpipes, wheels, and I can just make out the signature curverd rear quater window. Also the inner light (the one on the boot lid) looks more porsche than VW - I think VW will use rounder inserts like on the tiguan, these lights don't fit in line with a VW.

      i think this a newer Audi Q-model
      Look at the curve at the tail light... matches the one on the A3

      Good "spy" work

      You don't leave a vehicle that you really want to keep quiet right next to the chain link fence with a cover that is too small.

      Only one spy shot...? I would have hoped we could have been *peppered* with more.

      Here's to hoping the Panamera eventually serves as a platform for a really bad ass Mercedes SL competitor,just as the Cayenne served to bankroll the Cayman.
