I doubt this is facelifted by the company. It could be a Hamann tuned Cayenne or a custom job. The lights haven't changed, they've just been coverd with that grey material (what ever it may be).

Hamann usually go for those fat, low profile sports tyres, but these tyres look pretty stock to me.

Its a Cayenne that Porsche is testing. It is a facelifted one. Usually tuners dont put camofladge on the design as 90% of the design is already known by everybody!

Cayenne has always been one of those 'underdogs' and received quite a backhand from the critics.It was 'never' appreciated abroad.Just bcos its not Porsche at its best.
And this ones gonna go all the way down in the bad books of the critics.
