A little more Porsche, a little less TouraregRecent carparazzi spy shots reveal that Porsche is hard at work on the next generation Cayenne. Apparently, the German manufacturer is speeding-up the design process to catch what's left of the sport truck's declining market share– before Euro-regs and CAFE clampdowns strangle the fuel-sucking SUV's sales. To death. From the spy shots, it looks like the Cayenne Mk II will not increase in size. We can even imagine a little downsizing (doubly true for the mechanicals, as 500bhp-plus turbocharged engines are not the done thing in Brussels). A hybrid system is way more fashionable (it not actually effective). Will Porsche have to ditch robust off-road mechanicals for mpgs? No se. As for the Cayenne's design, I'm hoping for a more muscular and elegant version. Then again, who isn't? I'd also like to see Porsche work around the traditional round lights. Those just scream: "Porsche." For the rest, one piece of advice: keep it simple. No uber-grilles or uber-spoilers. Leave that to the tuners.
