Porsche Cayenne

Meet the facelifted Porsche Cayenne. Our eagle-eyed spy shooters captured this example of Porsche's freshened SUV virtually devoid of camo, giving us our clearest look yet at what the eventual mid-cycle work will do to the strong-selling Cayenne.

The overall changes do, indeed, look minor, with a reprofiled intake being the most obvious item. The headlights are still covered, so we don't know what kind of jeweling has been done, but the shape does appear identical to the current model. Overall, the changes appear totally in line with a mid-cycle refresh.

As we explained previously, a plug-in Cayenne is on the way. It will join a crop of engines that is likely to be similar to what's on offer today, with naturally aspirated, turbocharged, hybrid and diesel variants released over time.

As of now, there's no word on just when the freshened Cayenne will arrive, although we'd bet that its auto show debut will come in early October, at the Paris Motor Show. That doesn't rule out an online debut in the months and weeks before, though.

Take a look up top and let us know what you think of Porsche's latest bit of design work.
