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.

      THe front end has been contoured to resemble the Macan, which is an improvement. I miss Porsches all having round headlights though. From the 356 through the 928 and 968 (I'll play the purist and say the 944/924 wasn't a proper Porsche, though that's silly) Porsches have usually had round headlights. But I still think this is the best looking midsized SUV. Land Rover is the only company that comes close.

      The tail lights will look like the Macan's ones.

      Pales when compared to xc60 or land rover offerings even the Ml at Mercedes has this beat by a long shot, then you have cayeen, toareg and bmw suvs bringing up the rear in style and leading in ugliness

      Every time we used to go on business trip to Europe always love the way Ford Ka drove and the Puma was a little coupe base on it,but no more now we have it inUSA with Fiat help and name ( the 500) but our car company don't let us drive them anymore and is a nice Up that we have to drive around with the smallest TDi engine I ever see,memories of good Ford days when I saw that Cooper Ka on the picture!

      Besides the rear tail lights which will most likely be like the Macan, it doesn't need camouflage because you'd be hard pressed to see anything different.

      " Take a look up top and let us know what you think of Porsche's latest bit of design work." It's Ugly! Just like the previous generations

      Looks like a 1st gen bumper cover grafted onto a 2nd gen body.

      http://www.banklawyersblog.com/.a/6a00d8341c652b53ef0120a56f272f970b-800wi Typical Porsche engineering BS, just like the 911's. "We've changed every panel!". Still looks the same. Still fugly. Great performance for what it is though; I'll give em that. At least if you're driving it, you don't have to look at it.

      This vehicle only looks good in GTS form with the roof attachments.
