Well well well, what do we have here? Looks like an Audi Q5. But what of those black fender flare extensions? Are we looking at a Q5-S or even a Q5-RS? Considering that it was snapped entering the Porsche test facility at the Nürburgring, our sources suggest what we're actually looking at is a very early development mule for the new Porsche Cajun.

The baby Cayenne is slated to be based, after all, on the Audi crossover. And while these spy shots don't give us any indication of what the final styling will look like, it is the first glimpse we've gotten at the Porsche crossover altogether, even if could still pass as an Audi.

Once finalized, we're expecting a more aggressive shape from the Cajun, packing a variety of engines and transmissions underneath. It may be a while until we see the finished product, but at least we know Porsche is working on it. Probably.

        Driving the A81 at night is fun. Especially north of Weinsberg where one can go fast.... To be more precise. Some Daimlers wear WN (Waiblingen) which indicates AMG (located in Affalterbach which is part of Rems-Murr-County). And there are some Daimler mules that are very close to production with FR (Freiburg) number plates, but I do not really know why. Just look at my last post...

      Q5 must be the most flexible Russian doll.

        Let's hope Porsche doesn't go the Russian Audi route and tries to differentiate it as much as possible from the Cayenne.

          word on the street is that Walter de Silva himself has designed the Cajun.

      The Q5 looks good dressed up like that, someone should make a kit for it.

        It looks like a CUV/microvan. Makes about as much sense as wearing high-heel hiking shoes with no tread on the soles...

      The only real indication is Ludwigsburg license plates. If it was a real Audi it would have either Ingolstadt license plates (boring) or Heilbronn license plates (funnier, because of more aluminum or Quattro GmbH which indicates RS).
