In order to keep it fresh among new competitors like the redesigned BMW X5, the 2015 Porsche Cayenne will be receiving a facelift.
Porsche has been busy lately with the debut of some of its more glamorous models, such as the new 911 GT3 and Turbo. But in order for fun machines like those to even be possible, there needs to be a brand rainmaker, the model that brings in tons of cash. The Cayenne is that model and since the first generation debuted back in 2002, it’s brought in millions for Porsche. The Panamera and upcoming Macan baby SUV are also vital for profits but without the success of the Cayenne, it’s not for certain whether Porsche would have had the confidence to expand beyond sports cars.
And believe it or not, it’s already time for the current second-gen Cayenne to receive a facelift. Our spy photographers were on hand to catch a test mule out testing. We can tell there will be some changes made to the front bumpers and headlights. The taillights will be given a slimmer look. New wheel designs and slight interior changes are also expected when the updated Cayenne arrives in late 2014 as an early 2015 model.
