2024 Porsche Cayenne partially revealed in new teaser, debut on April 18
Porsche has dropped the final teaser for the 2024 Cayenne facelift that is set for a global debut at the Shanghai International Auto Show in China on April 18, 2023. The latest teaser partially reveals the Porsche Cayenne facelift that appears to get evolutionary styling changes including revised headlamps with new tech. Porsche says that China is the automaker’s single largest market and it’s only fair to introduce the new Cayenne at one of the most auto shows globally.
The 2024 Porsche Cayenne facelift will get the newly developed HD matrix LED headlamps that use a total of 16,384 individually controllable micro-LEDs onto the surface area the size of a thumbnail. The new headlamps are said to be more energy efficient since only the pixels that are necessary light up. Each of the four modular comes with an upper strip for the LED DRLs. The new headlamps can illuminate the road up to 600 metres (about 2,000 feet) when switched to high-beam. They also get the non-dazzling function to avoid blinding the oncoming driver.
