Spy photographers have caught the 2018 Porsche Cayenne testing again.

Although this isn’t the first time we have seen the 2018 Porsche Cayenne, this prototype was seen with what will likely be the new tail lights in the rear. Previous prototypes featured fake rear lights, and Porsche is still trying to conceal the new design with camouflage.

While the exterior of the 2018 Porsche Cayenne isn’t changing significantly, this is the first time spy photographers have managed to grab photo of the SUV’s interior, revealing almost everything. The tachometer in the center appears to still be analog, but the rest of the instrumentation is now digital. The best news is that Porsche has really cleaned up the look of the cabin to have fewer buttons and less clutter than before.

The center infotainment screen has also grown in size while the air vents have been moved to make way. There’s also a new gear lever in the center console, hinting that Porsche may be moving to a new transmission for the next Cayenne. Rumor has it that it could be an eight-speed dual-clutch unit.

Expect new engines to find their way under the hood of the 2018 Porsche Cayenne when it debuts sometime next year.
