A new look for Porsche’s full size SUV…
Porsche is adding a new Coupe body style to their full sized Cayenne model lineup.
“The Coupe includes all the technical highlights of the current Cayenne, but has an even more dynamic design and new technical details that position it as more progressive, athletic, and emotional,” says Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG.
The highlights of the new model include sharper lines with a redesigned rear section, an adaptive rear spoiler, individual rear seats, and either a panoramic fixed glass roof fitted as standard, or an optional carbon fiber roof.
Steeply sloping roof line
The more athletic appearance is immediately obvious as Porsche mimics the lithe look of the red hot selling Macan. Who can blame them. The Macan is the thinking man’s sports car and does just about everything you want it to do.
Sharp eyes will notice a “…significantly more steep roof line that falls away to the rear makes the Cayenne Coupe appear even more dynamic, and positions it as the sportiest-looking model in the segment,” says Michael Mauer, Vice President Style Porsche.
Upgraded Standard Equipment
Building on the already well-equipped Cayenne, the new Coupe variants include upgraded standard equipment. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), the Sport Chrono Package and 20-inch wheels are part of the starting MSRP of the standard model.
Comfort on the road with four sports seats
New for the Cayenne Coupe models, eight-way Sport Seats are standard equipment in the front. The new seats, which are similar to the 18-way Adaptive Sport Seats that are standard equipment in the Turbo model, offer generous lateral support and feature an integrated headrest. In the rear, the Coupe comes fitted as standard with a rear bench that has the characteristics of individual seats. Alternatively, the comfort rear seats – a familiar feature of the Cayenne – are available as a no-cost option. Rear passengers sit 1.18 inches lower than in the Cayenne, meaning there is plenty of headroom despite the vehicle’s sporty lowered silhouette.
It’s big in the trunk with 22 cubic feet and rises to 54.3 cubic feet with the rear seats folded.
Market launch with 335 HP and 541 HP turbocharged engines
All Cayenne Coupe models will come with the Sport Chrono Package as standard equipment. Two high-performance engines are available at market launch. The Cayenne Coupe features the same 3.0-liter mono-turbo V6 as the standard Cayenne, generating 335 hp (250 kW) and maximum torque of 332 lb.-ft. It achieves the 0-60 mph sprint in 5.7 seconds, or 5.6 seconds with the optional lightweight sports packages. The vehicle’s top speed is 151 mph. The top-of-the-range Cayenne Turbo Coupe uses a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 producing 541 hp (404 kW), and 567 lb.-ft. of torque. It accelerates from a standing start to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, and has a top speed of 178 mph.
Pricing and Expected Dealer Arrival
The new Porsche Cayenne Coupe is expected in U.S. showrooms for the 2020 model year in the fall of 2019. Starting MSRP for the Cayenne Coupe is $75,300 and $130,100 for the Cayenne Turbo Coupe, both excluding $1,250 for delivery, processing and handling.
