The 2013 Porsche Cayenne has a unique look relative to other SUVs—but it's not one that everyone will love. It's a far cry from the design of Porsche's legendary sports cars, like the legendary 911 and now-iconic Boxster, but it does have just enough of those models' style and panache.
Last redesigned for 2011, the Cayenne changed quite radically from a weight-and-performance standpoint (losing hundreds of pounds)—but you wouldn't know it from the outside. The new exterior is more an evolution of the former version, with some new details and improved aerodynamics. It still looks great, though it's still a little at odds with the sports-car lineup, wrapping a rough approximation of the 911's curves around a large SUV frame
Visual variation between models in the lineup—including the Cayenne Hybrid—is quite subtle, with wheels and badging being the main differentiators.
