2018 Porsche Cayenne Sketched

Porsche has previewed the 2018 Cayenne ahead of its August 29th debut with a sketch. The sketch confirms a few design traits, such as sizable influence from the smaller Macan housed within an overall evolutionary design change.

The Porsche brand is fairly notorious for playing it safe when it comes to redesigns, so perhaps it comes as no surprise that the Cayenne isn’t changing that much. Porsche is sprinkling in some Macan influence in the greenhouse and fascias, including a bolder grille design.

Spy shots of the new Cayenne have also suggested it will gain a wrap-around taillight treatment similar to that have of the new 911. This would mark the most significant design change on the Cayenne, if it pans out.

Under the hood, the new Cayenne is expected to feature smaller displacement turbo engines, perhaps borrowed from the new 911, though there has been no official comment on engine selection. Rumors have suggested the new Cayenne will also gain a fully-electric model, inspired by the Mission E Concept.

Porsche will be revealing the third-generation Cayenne on August 29th. It’s expected to hit the road sometime in 2018.

    Nice. CUVs aren't really my thing, but this will have the looks and performance to be a credible Porsche.
