A prototype of the 2015 Porsche Cayenne facelift was spied up close parked near a hotel in Lapland where test drivers usually hang out.

The Cayenne prototype was part of a larger Porsche test group which included the 911 GTS our spies caught on camera last week. Wearing less disguise than ever, the facelifted Cayenne II comes with a slightly redesigned front fascia featuring a reworked grille and daytime running lights. The headlights wear faux stickers indicating there will be some revisions in the graphics.

The sides of the car will remain virtually the same as we don't notice any changes while at the back the taillight clusters graphics will be updated, together with a new bumper.

Engine lineup will likely be carried over but the Cayenne S is expected to make use of a V6 3.0-liter twin-turbo delivering 420 bhp (313 kW) and 520 Nm (384 lb-ft). In addition, reports are indicating Porsche will introduce an E-Hybrid derivative equipped with a V6 3.0-liter and an electric motor which would provide a combined output of 416 bhp (310 kW) and 589 Nm (435 lb-ft).

The 2015 Porsche Cayenne II facelift is going to be showcased later this year at a major auto show, possibly in October in Paris.
