The entire Porsche Cayenne range will soon be refreshed at mid-cycle. These snaps are from Rocky Mountain spies catching the updated Cayenne Turbo Coupe tests. Expect the modified model to hit showrooms next year.
This Cayenne Coupe wears the same concealed grille treatment we see on the boxier version. The design is very similar to the current style, but with wider entrances on the sides. The fascia is nothing more than a narrow slit. It’s not clear if the updated look removes the openings in the lower corners or if some of the siding covers them.
There are also decals around the headlights to distort their shape. The lamps seem a bit thinner than the current design. This tweak forces designers to create a slightly different style for the hood so that it fits the new pieces.
These are the only sections that Porsche engineers hide on this vehicle. The back doesn’t seem to change at all. Typically, when the automaker refreshes a product, the result isn’t a major styling overhaul.
While not visible here, previous spy photos show the updated Cayenne’s interior. It adopts the chunky gearshift of the current 911. There appears to be a new infotainment screen. A revamped center console does away with most of the physical switches in favor of a small screen.
We have no information on the Cayenne’s refreshed powertrain lineup. So far, there are no signs of any major additions to the lineup. Often refreshed Porsche models have slightly higher outputs than their predecessors.
Don’t expect all of the camouflage to come off until the updated Cayenne launches in 2022. The refreshed model line will go on sale later in the year, possibly as product of the year. model 2023 in the United States.
