The mild disguised 2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo prototype has been caught testing two days ago. By the way, the changes on the spied model are easily visible mostly on the front and rear fascia. In addition, it features a revised grille and larger cooling ducts for engine and front brakes. On top of that, the German automaker will introduce a more comfortable cabin filled with new technology.
However, like before, the Cayenne Turbo will use the same twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 that will receive some changes. Besides this engine, the manufacturer also offers a more powerful Turbo S E-Hybrid that produces 670 horsepower.
2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Design
The more powerful 2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo comes with an updated front fascia with a revised splitter and larger cooling ducts. Generally speaking, the design lines are identical to the existing coupe, but with some here and there changes. Like before, the new one will also be available with a carbon-fiber roof and a larger active rear spoiler for increased downforce.
Porsche claims that the rear spoiler reduces better turbulence, resulting in more speed. The side profile is also more aggressive, and the manufacturer used standard 22-inch Neodyme wheels sized 285/35R-22 in front and 315/30R-22 at the rear. On the back, the Porsche Cayenne continuous to offers the same taillight, and it also houses a pair of a new titanium sports exhaust system.
