VW Cayenne. What the...

A contributor to has posted some very interesting pictures from his trip to China. He saw a Cayenne with VW badges and wheels. You can see the P-car brakes thru the rims. The body is obviously Cayenne. Is this some local trying to look incognito with his/her conspicuous consumption? Or is this a Porsche VW product? publishes official sales figures for China so I figure it is the former that explains this picture. Thoughts?

Tough to tell from just those couple of pics, but I'm leaving toward false badging.

China is a pretty big market for Porsche and fake badging would be a great way to avoid an unwanted car-jacking (hmmmm, is a car-jacking ever wanted?)
