Porsche Cayenne facelift 1

It’s spyshot time again. Our automotive peeping Toms from the Continent have served up more pics of the upcoming facelifted second-gen Porsche Cayenne undergoing tests in Germany (see the first set of spyshots here).

You’d be forgiven if you can’t tell what’s new at a glance – the changes appear to be rather minimal. But they’re there all the same – there is a restyled front bumper and reshaped head and tail lamps.

The upcoming iteration of the Porsche Cayenne is set to get a new engine (reports speculate a 3.0 litre twin-turbo V6 with 413 hp and 520 Nm of twist), new wheel designs and minor interior updates, according to CarPix.

A hybrid version is also said to be in the works, which could see a 316 hp 3.0 litre V6 working together with a 94 hp electric motor to offer a combined 410 hp and an electric-only range of 35 km.

The facelifted second-gen Porsche Cayenne is expected to first show in late 2014 before going on sale in 2015 to jostle for sales with the new BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz M-Class.
