Status Design upgrades Porsche Cayenne to ‘even uglier’ status

Status Design Porsche Cayenne fq

The Russian tuners seem to love getting into the Porsche Cayenne, but the usual aim of tuners is to make the vehicle better not… worse. The latest team to take on the Cayenne comes in the form of Status Design, a Russian outfit that has taken what many consider to be Porsche’s ugliest model and somehow made it uglier.

While there are no engine modifications to the Status Design Cayenne, the new aerodynamics kit is easily enough to help differentiate the highly customised SUV from the standard model. Throwing subtlety and elegance to the dogs, Status Design has obviously decided to take the more-is-better approach to design with its take on the Cayenne.

Up front, the new bumper borrows some angular elements from air-intakes seen on supercars and then combines them with what appears to be an Audi R8-inspired air-conditioning unit just below. There is also a new bonnet, with a Enzo-styled pointed nose that goes down towards the front grille rather strikingly, and this is matched up with some new front fenders.

Along with new side sills and some familiar looking two-tone panels that appear to have come into automotive fashion ever since the Bugatti Veyron and Audi R8 adopted this style, the Status Design Cayenne also uses one of the most bizzare looking rear spoilers known to man.

The kit will apparently be made from plastic and carbon-fibre, and the first display vehicle will be ready to make small children cry by October.
