TTAC Photochop: New Porsche Cayenne (Mk II)

Recent 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.

    Sorry, it's still a Cayenne. Nothing short of the wrecking ball can make this thing look better.

    Either those rims are 22's or that cabin is the size of an Aveo. Which is it? Guiness Book of World Records for largest Brembo's ever on a production vehicle?
