Say hello to the new Porsche Cayenne Coupe. The Stuttgart sports car maker is the latest to join the club of SUV Coupes, where Mercedes-Benz and BMW already have the GLE Coupe and X5 respectively.
The Cayenne Coupe is essentially a restyled version of the standard Cayenne Coupe. It gets a sloping roof line along with redesigned bumpers. Overall width has increased by 18mm. The rear gets an active spoiler id addition to the roof mounted one both working in conjunction. The active spoiler extends by 135 mm at speeds above 90 kph in turn providing better downforce.
As far as the interior goes, the dashboard layout and controls are identical to the standard Cayenne. Porsche gives you the option of a two seat layout and a full bench seat at the rear. The rear occupants sit 30 mm lower for better headroom.
The Porsche Cayenne Coupe comes with two engine options. There is a 2.9 litre V6 turbo petrol putting out 340 horsepower and 450 Nm torque in the Cayenne Coupe and a 4.0 litre twin turbo V8 petrol engine developing 550 hp and 770 Nm of torque in the Cayenne Turbo Coupe. Both engines are mated to an eight speed torque converter automatic gearbox. Porsche claims that the Cayenne Coupe will go from 0 to 100 kph in 5.9 seconds while the Turbo will do the same in 3.9 seconds. Top speeds for the Cayenne Coupe and Cayenne Turbo Coupe are 243 kph and 286 kph. The Cayenne Turbo Coupe also gets a sports exhaust system.
Standard features across the Porsche Cayenne Coupe range include 20 inch alloy wheels, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), panoramic roof with glazed area (carbon roof optional), integrated roller blind etc. There are also three sport packages on offer. It gets standard boot space of 625 litres that goes up to 1540 litres (Cayenne Turbo Coupe 600 to 1510 litres).
