The Porsche Cayenne has been on the market for a few years, so the company is preparing a minor facelift for the popular crossover.

Recently spotted by our spy photographers, the updated model appears to feature a new front bumper and restyled head- and taillights.

Engine options will likely carryover, but the Cayenne S could adopt a new twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that develops 413 bhp (308 kW) and 385 lb-ft (520 Nm) of torque. There could also be a new E-Hybrid variant which has a 316 bhp (235 kW) 3.0-liter V6 engine, a 94 bhp (70 kW) electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack. This could enable the model to have a combined maximum output of 410 bhp (306 kW) and an electric-only range of up to 22 miles (35.4 km).

The facelifted Cayenne is expected to debut sometime next year, possibly as a 2015 model.
