Next-gen Porsche Cayenne spotted with new nose

7 August 2017

It appears that there will be some minor yet distinct differences between the next-generation Porsche Cayenne and the current model. This Cayenne was spotted sporting a very different front fascia.

Photographers have captured two variations of the new Cayenne driving around with very little camouflage. The changes to this white Porsche are more dramatic than the other Cayenne that was recently spied.

“With both of these Cayennes running around, we suspect that the fascia and exhaust changes will represent different trim levels or engine choices for the Cayenne,” reports Autoblog.

The biggest change on this white Cayenne can be seen on the grille,  which looks more squared off and with slightly larger ends that give a rectangular dog-bone shape, compared with the previous Cayennes. There’s also a large insert with thin vertical and horizontal bars. The rear end of the SUV sports quad exhaust tips rather than dual exhausts.

This new white model looks more aggressive with the bold grille and exhaust tips, so it is expected to be the higher-performance version, possibly the Cayenne GTS or Cayenne Turbo. The other dark blue model that has been spotted may be the look for the regular Cayennes.

It sports some (subtle) changes to the grille that has been brought in line with the outboard grilles, and the base is also wider than the top for a more aggressive look. The headlights, although hidden by a translucent cover, have also been changed – four bright LED lights replace the current model’s design.

From the side profile, the roofline starts to slope back sooner than on the current model and the D-pillar is also raked forward more than the current model.
