2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS [w/video]

Driving Emotion Triumphs Over Brute Horsepower Porsche has delivered more than 430,000 Cayenne sport utility vehicles since its introduction in 2003, which isn't bad for a company that only offered one model, the 911, less than two decades ago. The Cayenne has been such a success because it retains the automaker's basic DNA; all of its countless variants have been inherently enjoyable to drive. Yet the German automaker has just raised our brows by claiming that its new Cayenne GTS is the "sportiest SUV on the market." Whoa, wait a second. That proclamation seems as if it will cause...

    Spy Shots: Porsche Cayenne shows a bit more face, plug-in spotted
    1394838840

    Porsche was first rumored to be working on a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version of the Cayenne over a year ago. However, we had never seen it, until now. The new model was caught almost completely undisguised while testing. In another stroke of luck, we got a glimpse of the upcoming facelift for Porsche's SUV (pictured above) as well. According to the spy ...

    Spy Shots: 2015 Porsche Cayenne spotted with facelift
    1365018300

    Although it's only been a few years since the current Porsche Cayenne was introduced, Porsche seems to be working on a midcycle update for its big SUV possibly in time to welcome the smaller Macan. As seen in these recent spy shots, it looks like the Cayenne will be getting a minor face- and butt-lift, but it's hard to say what other changes are in store ...

    While we've seen several spy shots of 2011 Porsche Cayenne prototypes and mules, plus a few renderings that purport to show the real deal, Porsche apparently let the cat out of the bag by mistake... again. On the Porsche website, an image that shows the 2011 Cayenne right in the middle of a family picture magically appeared and was apparently swapped out ...

    Spy Shots: Is this the next Porsche Cayenne?
    1237300140

    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 ...

    Spy Shots: New Porsche Cayenne interior spotted
    1230301800

    It appears to be official: the Panamera interior that this particular blogger loves but has been almost universally reviled by everyone else is Porsche's new interior design language. A refreshed Cayenne has been photographed with an instrument panel directly descended from that of the Panamera four-door super "coupe" (sedan, really). The new Cayenne center ...

    Hello, what's this? Lambo SUV or Porsche GT Coupe?
    1188484020

    Just like the NSX mule that's been spotted ripping around, this Porsche Cayenne is masquerading as something it's not. What the end result actually is remains a mystery, but something's using fat-ass über-SUV duds to fly incognito. Motor Authority reports that there's a Lamborghini LM002 successor lurking under there. The Lambo-ute successor reportedly ...

    Spy Photos: Porsche 911 again
    1172582880

    It hasn't been very long since we last brought you some spy shots of the freshened 911, but when another pic popped up, we felt we had to share. After all, this is our favorite rear-engined sports car. Returning even closer to its roots, the two-beam round headlamps and larger air inlets look very 993 Turbo. The cleaner look should be an improvement that ...

    Porsche Cayenne facelift caught sans camo

    Car & Driver has the latest, greatest spy photos of the facelifted Porsche Cayenne that won't be seen in these here parts until MY 2008. The new nose is crisp and organized -- a clear improvement over the current car, but that's really not saying much. To this day, it's difficult to fathom how such a boring design got approved to wear the Porsche badge. ...

    Fresh Pepper: Facelifted Cayenne Spied
    1154084640

    British car mag Auto Express snagged spy shots of the updated Porsche Cayenne that's coming later this year. While the bodywork remains generally unchanged, a new front fascia and a mildly revised rear are in the cards for Stuttgart's SUV. In front, new headlights take up residence above a revised bumper that now features round integrated foglights (as ...
