Almost similar light design to the facelfited 996. With the Audi Q7 and RR Sport coming out, a facelift makes sense. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/werd.gif" BORDER="0">

Maybe they could do a version inspired on the 997, since every Porsche has a 911 face...

If you look closer in the picture the Cayenne in front is a Targa.

It has a back wheel like the Freelander and the alloy is showing. The rear window looks the same.

with a new RRS, X5, ML500, Q7, facelifted RR, LR3 ... Porsche better do something about their Cayenne with the ugly face.<p>I think, if the face lift s done right, if they change those ugly rims, if they add someagressive roof accesories, and if they add more standard features (everything is an expensive option for now) then they can still compete for 2 more years before an all-new design.<p>

Why? .. it is a personal opinion (not scientific stuff) that the face is ugly, all the choices of wheels they have are boring, and the roof looked (from the front) too low for the hight of the headlights... that hight ratio could be altered by adding aggressive roof rack like the old Discovey or like the Infiniti FX45

These latest shots reveal a more aggressive front end for the 4x4, with the guppy-like headlights getting a sharper treatment. There also appears to be a longer front overhang, perhaps tacked on to meet tighter front-impact and pedestrian safety requirements. However, whereas up to 80 percent of body panels were replaced on the new 911 and Boxster models, it appears that the facelifted Cayenne's body shape will remain largely intact</TD></TR></TABLE><br>source: 4car

Few words can express the feeling of loathing i have for this car. It can only be compared with the anticipation and hopes i had for it before i actually saw it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/all_coholic.gif" BORDER="0"> I could say anything they could do to it would be good, but that would be falling on the same mistake again. I'll say it looks sligthly better, but will wait to see more detailed pictures, or less camo-ed, to pass any judgement. <br>Will they make the 500hp option a standard for the turbo? Like people have said, with all the competition that is coming their way, they need to make a statement. Again. Or, a better statement than the hybrid version with the Toyota engine.

It does look much better, those headlights do made a difference. At least the pedestrian safety bumper doesnt look like the Saab 9-2!

I look at this... thing, and I can't help but be confused. I don't know if it looks better or twice as worse. I think Porsche was crazy to make a SUV in the first place. And now that I begin to wake up and think about it a bit, this... Cayenne looks like a 996 with a severe case of scoliosis. A facelift can't help it, Porsche should either give it the gullotine or go back to the drawing board.

The facelift is brilliant. Finally Porsche is stepping past the 911 cliches. It's just too bad the rear end has been left untouched.

If Porsche did not build the SUV, company now would be falling apart. Sales of sport cars are going down to drain and Porsche is affected as everyone else. It is the biggest sucess they had in a while, no matter what stupid journalists think. People need all kind's of Porsche's, not just the weekend kind. This is the first modern Porsche that everyone can buy, and they should build more cars like that.<p>It is matter of survival... stupid journalists always are ready to moan, but are they the ones that get fired and go down the drain when Lambo or Masserati went up for grabs?<p>Porsche is one of the few smalll companies left, and they simply have to look around to produce more models if they want to survive... Should they really give out their customers to wannabies like BMW or RR? Because when it comes to Porsche, everyone else is a wannabee.<p>Only mistake was that they didnt use unibody construction for SUV, but it is not something they could have done much about...<p>I am looking forward to their sedan in years to come...<p>and p.s. I am not huge Porsche fan, just admire all the heritage they have...

Hi all,<br>I am very interested in purchasing a Porsche Cayenne in the near future but these pictures of the facelift make me want to wait. My dealer won't disclose any information about the new car, however informed me that the 06 models will arrive this October. Will these be the new facelift models or will I have to wait one more year?<br>Thank you, I appreciate all responses

From AUTOCAR<p><A HREF="http://www.autocarmagazine.co.uk/News_Article.asp?NA_ID=213466" TARGET="_blank">http://www.autocarmagazine.co....13466</A><p><i>Unlikely to be publicly unveiled before the Detroit Motor Show next January (or possibly even later),...<p>These pictures show an early prototype of the new model and clearly demonstrate the extensive changes made to the car’s nose. The headlamps have been reshaped into a more streamlined and purposeful look, and the gaping air intakes have been redesigned.<p>However, this car is wearing a thin plastic nosecone disguise which makes it hard to tell exactly how Porsche engineers have reworked the car’s air management. But one thing is clear: the thin upper central air intake has been dropped down below the headlamp’s lower edge. This seems to allow all three intakes to line up – a considerable improvement over the current nose design.<p>Extensions ahead of the front wheels and a re-worked lower valance may be modifications to meet upcoming pedestrian safety regulations. Vehicles with high ground clearances need to ensure that pedestrians aren’t dragged under the wheels in an accident.<p>Other minor changes to the back appear to be smaller rear lights (their bottom edges on this mule have been extended with red tape) and a new rear bumper and valance design.<p>One Porsche source suggested that the mule is out testing because the cooling system must be perfected this far ahead of launch. Any fundamental problems here could require a re-design of the grille openings.<p>Although the 450bhp Turbo Cayenne is mesmerically rapid, Porsche engineers could be preparing to up the power again. After all, this mule seems to have eight-pot front brake calipers.<p>Even more likely is that the base model will get a version of VW’s upcoming 3.6-litre V6 engine destined for a super-Passat. In the standard state of tune it develops 280bhp, 30bhp more than today’s 3.2-litre V6 Cayenne.</i><p><A HREF="http://www.autocarmagazine.co.uk/Car/Porsche/Cayenne/8255229241.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://www.autocarmagazine.co....1.jpg</A><br><A HREF="http://www.autocarmagazine.co.uk//Car/Porsche/Cayenne/8255231410.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://www.autocarmagazine.co....0.jpg</A><br><A HREF="http://www.autocarmagazine.co.uk//Car/Porsche/Cayenne/8255232540.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://www.autocarmagazine.co....0.jpg</A><p><BR><BR>

I think that the new headlights, even being less connected with the rest of Porsche's line up, will be a lot better than the current ones. Also, a grille between the lights would be a great idea. But again, is the back where a huge redesign is needed.

I think they might have Toyota/Lexus beat for most subtle facelift ever. Maybe it is painfully glaring, but I don't see much difference. The bumper is <I>very</I> slightly different, but thats about it. I was expecting evil headlights from the spy pics. Obviously not as evil looking as the disguised ones, but still, not these carryovers. Oh well, I'm not in their target market anyway.

Not sure why you think the tyres are its problem. Tyres will help, but tell me of Land Rover product equipped as standard with off road tyres? They're not. Putting 4 wheel drive and a difflock doesn't make an offroader. The RRS walks all over it off road. Porsche should drop the heavy 4x4 gear and make more of itself as a sports car that can go a little off road

But the Porsche does not distance itself on road by as big a margin as RR Sport does off road. The supercharged RR Sport is awesome on and off road, the Cayenne is a better sports car on road but useless off road. The power is all wrong, the articulation is wrong. They should have made it softer off road, which in reality its capabilities only are and ditched the heavy off roader bits - if you get what I mean. But then I want a 4x4 that is the real deal, this is a lifestyle product like the X5. Their product makes more sense to me (not a fan though) BMW made no pretence at being an off roader, which was sensible IMHO

The front looks overrought and busier with all the creasing, almost like the hyundai Santa Fe. But it's not as bloated looking, so it's an improvement.<br>The rear looks even more like a minivan now that the lights are larger. That's a big mistake.

wonderful to hear the interior is getting an overhaul. test drove a cayenne s about a year ago and was surprised at the not-so-hot quality of the interior. plastics were not on par with the inside of the passat in the connected vw dealer.

The new nose looks great. I agree that the interior is a bit low rent for such an expensive vehicle. The V6 Cayenne is a total NO. Porsche and VW need to take about 1000 pounds out of the vehicle in the next generation when they do an all new vehicle and not just a warm over.

I'm really happy with this restyle. It gave the tank some sharpness to it, which makes it even better looking. And to respond to the earlier comment about the rear lights being too big now, I think they needed to be enlarged. The truck is so massive in back, it needed these lights to give it a more agile, balanced appearance.

i never really had a problem with the cayenne's looks, although i think its styling is the weakest out of the touareg/cayenne/Q7 trio; this facelift seems to be quite an improvement judging from the pictures so far. i didn't like those new headlights at first (or the "predicted" headlight shape) but they've grown on me.

I'm not sure if this is genuine or if it's a chop. <br>There is also a very small pic in the March 2006 issue of Popular Mechanics (page 53) in their Auto Spy section pertaining to Europe. The car is shot as a side, 3/4 view, and the D-pillar seems thicker, I don't know if that's my imagination or not.

I have secured infurmation that Porsche is currently planning an international press event in September in Portugal. With 997 GT3 and 997 Turbo being launched at that time, I suspect this will be the presentation for the Cayenne facelift (so I expect first official pictures in summer and a public debut at the Paris Motor Show in fall). It would also match the expected launch of the VW Touareg. Since both cars are being produced on the same production line (Leipzig is only final assembly for the Cayenne) I would be surprised if the necessary adjustments are not somehow synchronized.

OK, the back will be slightly updated. Very subtle changes but quite effective, if you ask me. It will not be the major redesign i was dreaming with, but at least they did something about it.

Finally Porsche truly has a legit looking <i>sport</i> utility vehicle. It's so much sharper and cleaner, Porsche will have no problem moving these through the showrooms. This is what the regular and S Cayennes will look like, so where's the uncamoed Turbo?

Thanx worldcarfans.com but those aren't uncamoed. Those tailights in that first pic are definatly chopped. Same with the front of the second pic. Look at the discoloration between the front bumper and the hood and fenders. This is definatly not real. Maybe awful close, but no way...

I have to admit, you obviously are beginning to not like me.<p>That's ok though. The headlights sure look chopped, and if you read my statement, the first pic is the one with the DEFINATLY chopped tailights.

From this pic, we can see that the front air intake is redesigned.

wonder why porsche had to release the tease pic now when the undisguised pics has been around for months.

or to make it easier on everyone:<p><IMG SRC="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/4965/683/1600/wallpaper_1920x1200.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>it looks like each model gets its own unique air intakes and bumper. the one in the middle (probably the turbo) has LED foglights and raised lines on the hood while the other 2 (probably the regular and s versions) have neither.

The headlights are a nice change, pitty the new front got whacked with the ugly stick a few times. The air-inatke/grille just makes this pig look uglier although the vents to the side of that grille do look nice in combination with the headlights.<p>Of corse you can't expert them to change the whole car in this facelift, but IMHO the most ugliest aspect of the Cayenne is the rear-most window behind the rear passenger door. If that thing was more angular, it would give this car a more masculin look. Right now it has a bloated turd look going on which clashes with the idea of this 'tough' and 'mean' SUV.

They're a pretty decent set of gear. Pity they're so ugly, and so uncomfortable.

One of the biggest problems I had with the old Cayenne were the headlights, they were just shapeless blobs. These are much better, menacing looking.

Will the Turbo still have the "tall" grill?(the one that extends upward between the headlights).<br>Could look well in combination with the more agrressive headlight styling imo.<br>

Another debut to look forward to. A bolder and more aggressive and imposing direction in this edition, which was missing from it's predecessor; not that the current, up to 06, is bad, but needed more to back it's pedigree, heritage and performance.
