    2018 Porsche Cayenne Spied Virtually Undisguised

    The 2018 Porsche Cayenne has been spied virtually undisguised ahead of its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

    Looking instantly recognizable, the redesigned crossover has an evolutionary front fascia with a familiar grille and slimmer headlights. The déjà vu design continues further back but designers have made the car's profile appear less bulky.

    Besides featuring a more streamlined appearance, the next-generation Cayenne has a sportier roofline and smaller windows behind the rear doors. Our spy photographer also notes the camouflaged taillights are expected to resemble those on the Panamera Sport Turismo.

    Porsche has been tight-lipped on specifications but the crossover will ride on the MLB platform that underpins the Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga. This change could enable the model to weigh as much as 440 lbs (200) less than its predecessor.

    Engine options are expected to carryover from the Panamera so expect the entry-level model to have a 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that develops 330 hp (246 kW) and 331 lb-ft (448 Nm) of torque. Likewise, the mid-level Cayenne S could be equipped with a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 producing 440 hp (328 kW) and 405 lb-ft (548 Nm) of torque.

    Buyers looking for maximum performance should be able to get a Cayenne Turbo with a twin-turbo V8 cranking out 550 hp (410 kW) and 567 lb-ft (767 Nm) of torque. If that isn't insane enough, the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid could pack a combined output of 680 hp (507 kW).

    2018 Porsche Cayenne Tested To The Extreme [w/Video]

    With just a little over a week until the next generation Cayenne breaks cover, Porsche has released some insight into its development process.

    The images and video reveal several prototypes and pre-series vehicles being tested in some harsh environments, from the sand dunes of Dubai, and dusty slopes of the Death Valley, USA, to the ice and snow of Alaska.

    Porsche claims that its test vehicles completed a total of 4.4 million kilometers (2.7 million miles), since 2014, which included everyday conditions in urban traffic, on country roads, and on the motorways, as well as runs on the Nurburgring, Hockenheimring, and Nardo.

    "The third generation of the Cayenne also had to endure the stop-start traffic in the hot and humid conditions of Chinese cities, master test tracks in Sweden, Finland and Spain, and was transported to South Africa, Japan and New Zealand to complete extensive on and offroad testing", explains Porsche.

    Referred to as the E3 internally, the 2018 Porsche Cayenne will debut on August 29, and it's expected to be displayed at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, next month.

    It will adopt an evolutionary design, and it's believed to be powered by a couple of turbocharged V6 and V8 gasoline engines, in addition to a handful of plug-in hybrids that should join the lineup later on. The diesel units will be reportedly delayed, as a repercussion of the cheating emissions scandal, but they will be introduced at a later date, in Europe, at least.
