Porsche is going to launch a new Cayenne SUV in 2011 and until now, only a little is known about the car, with the German manufacturer refusing to discuss about the changes the future model will boast. But here are a couple of new spyshots giving us a glimpse into how the next Cayenne model will look like, along with some new details, still unconfirmed, regarding the whole revised range.

First of all, the future model will bring a much sleeker appearance than the current model. It will come with lots of changes inside as the interior will be more or less inspired by the one seen on Porsche Panamera. Higher quality materials and revised interior parts are very likely.

Just as expected, the next Cayenne will rely on a gasoline, diesel and hybrid engines. Rumors are pointing to a 4.8-liter V8 engine developing 400 horsepower for the Cayenne S and a 4.8-liter biturbo V8 powerplant boasting 500 horsepower - the same as on the Panamera Turbo - for the top-of-the-line Cayenne Turbo. Diesels will get the current V6 TDI unit producing 240 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque. Minor modification that could alter the final output of the engines are also very probable.

The hybrid on the other hand will remain the same as on the 2010 model, with power to be provided by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 unit developed by Audi. The powerplant produces 333 horsepower and is connected to a three-phase synchronous electric motor powered by a 38 kW NiMH battery. The battery will be mounted in the spare tire well.
