Spy Shots: 2011 Porsche Cayenne

June 3, 2009

While most automakers are recrafting their utility vehicle product plans, in the face of new fuel economy standards, Porsche's preparing to soldier on with its Cayenne SUV for at least a few more years.

The 2009 Porsche Cayenne is one of the more highly-rated sport-utes here at For 2011, Porsche's set to update the SUV, which was spotted in spy photos over at

The updated Cayenne will take some cues, WCF reports, from the upcoming 2010 Porsche Panamera sedan. The new cabin gets sporty seats, a more refined control stack, and some new finishes and switches. Outside, as the spy shots indicate, the updates will be limited largely to revised taillamps.

The Panamera also may lend its powertrains back to the Cayenne, including the 400-horsepower version of its current 4.8-liter V-8. A Volkswagen-sourced turbodiesel Cayenne is likely in the cards, too, and the Cayenne Hybrid talked up over the past couple of years will also carry over its combination of an Audi-sourced, supercharged V-6 and electric batteries and motors.
