Porsche Reveals Cayenne Coupe

Cayenne Coupe 7

After a few months of teasers and spy shots, the Porsche Cayenne Coupe has finally gone official. What's it all about? Find out here.

The new Porsche Cayenne Coupe is based on the existing Cayenne, but features a slightly different look. According to Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, the new Cayenne Coupe, "includes all the technical highlights of the current Cayenne, and its more dynamic design and new technical details position it as more progressive, athletic, and emotional,"

Some key focus points are the unique rear body style, a speed-sensitive rear spoiler and a rear bench which focuses on 2 individual seats. It's that rear which has us interested, however. "The distinctive roof flyline that falls away to the rear makes the Porsche Cayenne Coupé appear more dynamic, and positions it as the most sporting-looking model in the market segment," says Michael Mauer, Vice President Style Porsche. The differences between the standard Cayenne and Coupe are substantial. Not only are the A-pillar and front windshield shallower thanks to the roof height being reduced by 20 mm, but there are also new-look rear doors and wheel arches, which are 18 mm wider, giving it a sportier stance. Boot capacity is rated at 625 litres with the seats up, and 1 540 litres with them down. The Turbo version boasts 600-1 510 litres.

There'll be just 2 engines offered. Kicking off the range is the 3.0-litre V6 turbo with 250 kW and 450 Nm, enabling it to hit 100 kph in 6 seconds. The second engine can be found in the Cayenne Turbo Coupe and is a 4.0-litre turbocharged V8 boasting outputs of 404 kW and 770 Nm. It's capable of a brisk 3.9 second claimed run to 100 kph.
