The facelifted Porsche Cayman has been spied virtually undisguised.

The facelifted Porsche Cayman has been spied virtually undisguised.

Looking instantly recognizable, the updated model has a familiar design but adopts a new front bumper with revised intakes and new LED daytime running lights.  The headlights have also been updated but unfortunately the changes are hidden by photo-realistic camouflage. 

The styling changes are more subtle at the rear as there's a modified rear bumper with new reflectors.  The taillights have also been revised but, once again, the camouflage hides the details.

Interior changes are expected to be fairly limited but the model is slated to adopt a new steering and a rotary drive mode selector.  We can also expect a new Porsche Communication Management System (PCM) with multi-touch gesture recognition, Apple CarPlay compatibility and significantly improved navigation functions.

Engine options are still shrouded in secrecy but Matthias Müller has previously confirmed the model will be offered with a turbocharged four-cylinder.  The executive declined to reveal details but previous reports have suggested the 1.6-liter unit will produce 210 bhp (156 kW) while the 2.0-liter engine will have 286 bhp (213 kW) and 295 lb-ft (399 Nm) of torque.  There have also been rumors about an even more powerful 2.5-liter engine that could produce up to 395 bhp (295 kW).
