Porsche is preparing a raft of minor changes for its Cayenne SUV, expected to be shown at next month’s Paris show. Our exclusive spy photograph reveals the new Targa model, but this time we can see a new hatchback handle in the middle of the bootlid and modified exhaust pipes (circled above). These styling changes are tipped as part of a model-year spruce-up for the Cayenne, which has been on sale since ’02 (right).

The electrically operated glass-roof Targa option will be available on all three models: the Cayenne, S and Turbo. For around £5k, buyers get four glass panels that slide back at the touch of a button to create the sun-seekers’ SUV.

    The new Vantage has been developed as a Porsche 911 beater, and our first taste on UK roads suggests it can live up to that bold claim
