We’ve seen a lot of different tuners’ takes on the current generation Porsche Cayenne, ranging from mild (basically new bumpers and wheels) to wild (a full-blown, factory-looking two-door conversion). Those are all very nice, but what if you have a first generation example of Porsche’s SUV? Are you stuck with stock bodywork?
Of course you aren’t, silly goose. There’s a whole host of options for making a first-gen Cayenne (whether it’s the original Type 955 or the facelifted 2007-10 Type 957) stand out from the crowd. And Misha Designs is adding to that list with one honey of a body kit.
The front bumper is wider and lower than the stock piece, and incorporates a pair of trendy LED running lights. The vented, power-bulge hood is more aggressive than stock without being in-your-face. The fender and rocker panel extensions are fairly subdued, too, but do allow fitment of bigger wheels and tires (more on those in a bit). The rear bumper incorporates a diffuser and cutouts for overlapping exhaust outlets. Lastly, there’s a long rear spoiler atop the tailgate. And for those of you who get squeamish at the thought of cutting or drilling your baby, Misha Designs is happy to inform you that all of the parts except the fender extensions bolt on using the stock mounting points.
Four other things that bolt right on? Those would be the 22” wheels from Dynamic Performance Engineering (DPE). Their dished centers are a nice respite from flat or nearly-flat wheels. And black (or in this case, flat black) wheels always go nicely with a white body.
If you want modifications to the interior or the oily bits on this 4×4, however, you’re on your own. But there are plenty of ways to personalize both areas. And because you won’t be shelling out as much money as you would for a second generation Cayenne, you’ll probably have a fair bit of money left over for other upgrades. Convenient, huh?
