Love the front end and the interior, but there is a bit too much Dodge Durango/Toyota Highlander/Jeep Cherokee in the rear end. I know there is only so much you can do with and SUV, but with the old design, it at least stood out from the pack.
Yeah, the rear end to me reminds me of the current Ford Edge, but it still seems to match the current rear end styling that Porsche is going with. The tailights make me think of the current Panamera and 911.
BIL has a late 2016 V8S diesel on air. It's a fabulous thing. Fast, reasonably economical (c.30mpg), handles and rides well, has a brilliant interior, loads of space & kit and is very well screwed together. I'd have one in a heartbeat.
You can see quite clearly on the rear 3/4 view photo that it will have a much more classic 911-style rear side window. This mule has a mock standard Cayenne rear side window in tape. The angle of that rear window is barely any shallower than the standard one though. It's hardly the difference you get between the X5 and X6.
Facelift time for the 3rd Gen Cayenne... Other than the smaller Taycan-inspired headlights, there isn't much to see. Rear end might go through a more significant revision to distance it from the EQC above.
