Porsche Cayenne


Just the other day, we caught the 2015 Cayenne having a Marilynn Monroe moment, as a gust of wind blew the cover off of its front end. That was the first really good look that we got at the front end of the Cayenne , but now we get a nice sneak peek at the Turbo model’s front end, as our spy shooters caught it out and about.

With the exception of the whistle from the engine, the only other ways to tell this is a Turbo model and not the standard Cayenne are the rims, the extensions on the bumpers and the fog lights up front.

just like the standard Cayenne that we caught recently, the Turbo model’s front end is in full view, but the back end still has its lights hidden by covers. These covers, which are the shape of the taillights on the current Cayenne, hide slimmer taillights that are similar to those we’ve seen on the Macan , Panamera and 911 .

Under its hood, we expect the Cayenne Turbo to feature the same 520 horsepower, 4.8-liter V-8 as the Panamera Turbo.

The wintery winds of change are blowing the covers off the newly restyled 2015 Porsche Cayenne as our spy photographers captured this unmasked example of Porsche’s latest redesign. From the looks of things, the changes are minor with the majority of updates relegated to the front turn signals, fog lights, and center grille.

For starters, the center grille is more rectangular than last year’s gaping mouth, and the side air inlets decrease in size to match the grille. The turn signals within those air inlets have been pushed upward into the bodywork, removing their free-floating appearance from 2013. The cruise control radar is also repositioned to the grille’s center, down from the 12 o’clock position in last year’s grille. Perched just above the radar looks to be a front view camera. The fog lights now stick out further with less bodywork around them.

Interestingly, the headlights almost look like stickers off a NASCAR Sprint Cup car. Perhaps the HIDs weren’t ready for real-world testing yet. Speaking of lights, turn signal repeaters now reside on the side mirrors, doubling the ones on the front fender. Besides the reshaped mirror, the side profile of the SUV — the doors and rear quarter panels — appears unchanged. Though not in these photos, we expect the taillights to get a similar 3D-like appearance resembling the Macan .

At this point, not much is know about potential powertrains for the 2015 Cayenne. Rumors swirl about Porsche offering a plug-in hybrid version, but nothing solid has been nailed down. Expect the diesel and gas variants to return with some possible tweaks to increase fuel efficiency and power outputs.

Porsche engineers have had a pretty busy 2014 so far, as our spy shooters caught the revised version of the Cayenne testing in the cold. The prototype wears only a bit of camouflage on the areas that Porsche is updating.

Up front, we expect to see some changes on the front bumper and the headlights, while the backside will get taillights that feature a slimmer look and 3D styling, like on the recently revealed Porsche Macan , and a revised rear bumper. The new Cayenne will also feature a selection of revised wheels and a slightly updated cabin.

Porsche may offer some updates for the engine, and a plug-in hybrid version could also be in the works for the Cayenne .

Considering Porsche has been testing the Cayenne for quite some time, we expect to see it in the dealerships sometime in late 2014 as a 2015 model.

Porsche is no stranger to releasing special edition models and if there’s a possibility that public interest will dictate strong demand, the automaker has no problem giving the people what they want.

Recently, Porsche unveiled its latest special edition work for the Cayenne SUV . It’s called the Cayenne Platinum Edition and it was designed to combine style and exclusivity, two hallmarks of German engineering.

As is always the case with a special-edition model, the Cayenne Platinum Edition will come dressed with a variety of color options, including a choice of models like a Platinum Silver Metallic finish to go with a Black, White, Meteor Grey Metallic, Basalt Black Metallic, Mahogany Metallic and Carrara White Metallic colors, all of which are available upon request.

Bi-xenon headlights, a fancy privacy glass, and a set of 19-inch Cayenne Design II wheels are also part of the exterior program.

Meanwhile, the interior also received a fancy set of upgrades, highlighted by a two-tone interior trim that has partial leather seats, a SportDesign steering wheel and a Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system with GPS navigation. Anti-dazzle interior mirrors, special floor mats and "Platinum Edition" sill plates, are also part of the interior digs, giving this Cayenne Platinum Edition the workings of an certifiably exclusive SUV.

The Cayenne Platinum Edition is powered by a 3.6-liter, V-6 engine that develops 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, in addition to a 3.0-liter, V-6 diesel that hits 254 horsepower and 368 pound-feet of torque. The model retails for €66,379 for the Cayenne Platinum Edition and €67,212 for the Cayenne Diesel Platinum Edition, which is about $90,300 and $91,500 based on current exchange rates.

It looks like Anderson Germany is getting ready for the start of winter in Europe , as today the tuner unveiled a very cool kit based on the Porsche Cayenne , called "White Dream Edition." As the name suggests, the kit is all about showing how cool the Cayenne looks in nearly all white inside and out.

Before turning the car completely white, Anderson Germany did some a\little bit of playing under the hood by adding a new middle three-pipe valve exhaust system and remapping the ECU. With these upgrades completed, the Cayenne now delivers a total of 600 horsepower — a 100-horsepower boost over stock. With this output, the Cayenne White Dream Edition is 50 horsepower more powerful than the mighty Cayenne Turbo S .

Along with the under-hood changes, the Cayenne White Dream Edition also received an aggressive wide-body kit made from carbon fiber, new wheels and some nice improvements on the interior.

Despite having its own auto show next month, Japanese tuner Wald International is making the trip to Las Vegas to attend another auto show.

Maybe it’s using frequent flier miles...

Whatever the case may be, Wald International will be in attendance at the 2013 SEMA Auto Show and it’s bringing its new program for the Porsche Cayenne to show American customers exactly how the Japanese roll when it comes to aftermarket tuning.

Full details surrounding the program have yet to be revealed, although you only need to take a long look at the photos to determine that it’s going to come with enough new components to render the design of the standard Cayenne irrelevant.

A wide-body kit is the obvious take-away from the program, of which it includes a new front bumper, revised side skirts, extended wheel arches, a new front splitter, LED lights and a ventilated hood. It’s interesting that none of these components are overly distinctive on the standard Cayenne, making this Wald International kit an essential addition to showcasing what the Cayenne can look like with a mean mug to complement its powerful engine.

Speaking of the engine, there’s no word on any performance upgrades so expect to see the same 4.8-liter, twin-turbo V-8 engine that produces 500 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, allowing the car to hit 62 mph in 4.7 seconds to go with a top speed of 172 mph.

Kahn Design just launched a hot body upgrade for the diesel Porsche Cayenne , bringing some of its chic mods to a truck besides the Range Rovers that are its bread and butter.

Kahn favors a huge revamp outside and in. The exterior and the interior look of the Cayenne were updated, but the base 3.0-liter, V-6 diesel is quite enough. It delivers a total of 240 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque, while delivering range and tax options to people without the Turbo S.

The exterior look however, is deeply revised and transforms even the Cayenne Diesel into a mean and powerful SUV.

New sports lowered suspension springs bring the car closer to be road, while the privacy glass ensures a the best privacy behind the wheel. Numerous Kahn logos placed on the wing shields and tailgate remind you this is no ordinary Cayenne.

We are still awaiting our first "official" peek at the Porsche Macan , but all of the spy shots have pretty much given all of its details away. For 2015, it looks as if Porsche is preparing to debut another SUV in the form of a revised Cayenne . We don’t expect this to be a complete overhaul, but we do expect it to receive a healthy and much needed facelift.

The 2015 Cayenne , which we expect to see hit the show circuit sometime in 2014, will carry a nearly identical design as the Macan. The most notable of similarities, at least according to the spy shots, are the taillights. Much like its little brother — the Macan — the Cayenne has some stickers shaped just like the current Cayenne’s taillight covering up the revised taillights. What is it with VW products and wearing pasties over the goodies?

We anticipate the 2015 Cayenne to carry the current engine lineup into the 2013 model year, but we do expect a slight power increase across the board.

The 2015 Porsche Cayenne was caught testing for the first time back in April and now, Porsche engineers took it out for another testing session. This time around, our photographers caught it on public roads in Germany.

With most of the new 911 family out and official, the Boxster and Cayman fresh out of the box, and the Macan still under development, there is only one model left to work on: the Cayenne .

The second-generation Cayenne was unveiled back in 2010 and it still looks relatively fresh and young, but now Porsche has started to prepare a facelift to keep it fresh for the next couple of years.

The prototype caught testing today wears camouflage only in the parts that are going to be updated: bumper and lights up front, plus new slimmer-looking taillights and a changed rear bumper. The wheels will also receive a new design, and rumors suggest that there are some new engines in the works too.

Expect to see the revised Cayenne sometime in late 2014.

L.A.-based tuner, Misha Designs , is offering some of the greatest tuning kits for basically every Porsche model under the sun. And the Porsche Cayenne 955 and Porsche Cayenne 957 are the latest ones to catch the tuner’s attention.

Misha is offering a wide-body kit that will completely transform the look of your Cayenne . The entire body kit is coated with white primer and is ready for whatever color you want to slather on it. As an option, you can have the front bumper lip and diffuser done up in carbon fiber.

Updates on the exterior include: a more aggressive front bumper; a vented hood; super-wide front and rear fender flares; stylish side skirts; a roof-mounted spoiler; and a rear bumper with matte-black diffuser.

Unfortunately, Misha left the bit and pieces under the hood alone, opting not to go with an engine tune. No worries though, the Cayenne is plenty powerful from top to bottom.

This new kit can be applied to all 2003 through 2010 Cayenne models and is available now.
