While the visual changes aren’t immediately noticeable, Porsche has completely redesigned the front end with a new blacked out grille, remodelled LED daytime running lights as well as new air intakes. Additionally, redesigned headlights will be present but this prototype actually has stickers covering the lights.
Elsewhere, new taillights will be featured which are again covered by stickers on this prototype. Underneath however, we expect to see much slimmer units than featured on the current Cayenne and instead inspired by the taillights of the Macan. Furthermore, the rear-end features a redesigned apron, bumper and exhaust tips.
Alongside the visual changes, some powertrain modifications are also on the cards for the 2015 Porsche Cayenne. First and foremost, the car’s V8 engine will be replaced by a 3.0-litre, twin-turbocharged petrol V6. In range-topping Cayenne Turbo S specification, the current 4.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 delivers 540 hp. If the twin-turbo six does replace the V8 in the top-of-the-range models, expect a similar power output.
The Porsche Cayenne hybrid will also receive some updates and utilise a similar powertrain to the current Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid.
