Porsche Cayenne Coupe can be had with either a 3.0L V6 or a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 making 549 PS and 768 Nm with top speed of 286 kmph
The Cayenne Coupe comes as part of Porsche expanding its third generation Cayenne series and it is a much-needed inclusion. Showcased at the 2019 Shanghai Motor Show, it features a distinctive sloped coupe roofline while the overall design is nothing short of being sporty and aggressive.
The major exterior highlights are a unique rear profile, adaptive rear spoiler that extends 134.5 mm at speeds of 90 kmph and above, panoramic fixed glass roof and prominent character lines. Porsche took the standard Cayenne and added a more appealing yet purposeful design in the coupe.
Another main change is the roof sitting 19.8 mm lower along with subtle modifications to the windshield, doors and quarter glass. The optional carbon fibre roof can be chosen this time around while the Sport Design allows for carbon fibre and Alcantara interior accents, Sport Exhaust System, 22-inch lightweight GT Design wheels, etc.
The bootspace stands at 622 litres and it can be expanded to 1,537 litres when rear seat folded while the ground clearance is reduced by 30 mm compared to the regular Cayenne. The German sports car manufacturer provides Porsche Active Suspension Management, 20-inch wheels, eight-way adjustable powered sports seats and Sport Chrono Package as standard in the Cayenne Coupe.
The Porsche Cayenne Coupe Turbo, on the other hand, has 28 litres of lesser cargo volume when rear seats are folded. Porsche offers the Cayenne Coupe in two powertrain choices. The 3.0-litre V6 develops 340 PS and 450 Nm in the standard Cayenne Coupe and it can do zero to 96 kmph in just 5.7 seconds – one tenth adrift when lightweight Sport package is used – with 243 kmph top speed.
The Turbo model comprises of a bigger 4.0-litre twin turbocharged V8 engine pumping out 549 PS and 768 Nm and it can do 0-96 kmph in a stunning 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 286 kmph. It competes against BMW X6, Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe and Audi Q8. It will go on sale in India next year.
