After revealing its new body kit developed for the Porsche Macan dubbed Ursa, TopCar focused its attention on the 2015 Cayenne Facelift. The third-generation of the Vantage kit arrives with a new front bumper with LED lights, a brand new hood with new air intakes, extenders for the front and rear fenders, lining on the front fenders as well as on the front and rear doors.
At the rear, there is a new bumper with integrated air diffuser, new exhaust pipes as well as a new design element featuring the ‘Vantage’ lettering that connects the two smoked taillights. In addition to the Vantage kit, the vehicle gets a new set of superlight 5-spoke forged wheels.
For the interior, the tuning company offers individual projects. Set to arrive in February 2015, the Vantage kit features elements made from carbon fiber and Kevlar in vacuum forming and can be installed in a regular place, without adjustments to factory standards.
There are not details regarding any engine upgrades, but we believe that the perfect vehicle to use the kit is the Cayenne Turbo, which uses a 4.8-liter V8 petrol engine, that generates 520 hp (382 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 750 Nm of torque from 2,250 and 4,000 rpm.
This model can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds (4.4 seconds when equipped with the Sport Chrono Package), while top speed is 279 km/h or 173 mph.
The latest iteration of the new Porsche Cayenne comes with a sharper and neater design that highlights the vehicle’s proximity to the road while emphasizing its sports car nature.
On the heavily tweaked rear end of the new Cayenne, the rear lights feature a flatter and more precise design. Its brake lights have a four-part design, just like the LED daytime running lights on the front. Furthermore, the tailgate now elegantly integrates the registration plate recess, lighting and handle strip.
The new tailgate takes up the shape of the rear light and continues them through a precise horizontal light-refracting edge – thereby highlighting the width of the Cayenne while lending the vehicle a more dynamic road stance.
These attributes are also enhanced by the new design of the exhaust tailpipes integrated in the lower rear panel. A double-pipe design is fitted to all Cayenne S models. Since the roof spoiler doesn’t feature a step, it now continues the basic line of the roof more consistently.
On the front end, the new Porsche Cayenne features a completely redesigned face, bonnet and wings. In addition, all primary design lines no longer flow outwards instead of towards the middle, thereby lending the Cayenne a wider and more powerful appearance.
Meanwhile, the now wider bonnet has its side gaps located on the wings. Since the central air inlet is now smaller than that on the previous Cayenne, the front end of the vehicle now has a tauter look. This central air inlet is flanked by two external air inlets – positioned farther outwards -- now larger than before. The left and right sides of the new Cayenne feature "airblades" that channels cooling air to the intercooler.
