Porsche has a new member in its Cayenne family. An even sportier model has been added to the third generation of this highly successful SUV line-up – the new Porsche Cayenne Coupe.
The highlights of the new Cayenne Coupe include sharper lines with a distinctive rear section, an adaptive rear spoiler, a rear-seat configuration with the characteristics of two individual seats, and two different roof concepts – a panoramic fixed glass roof (fitted as standard) and the optional carbon fibre roof.
The significantly steeper roof-line, which falls away towards the rear, makes the new Cayenne Coupe look even more dynamic. That effect is supported by a roof spoiler, which accentuates the distinctive Coupe silhouette. The front windscreen and A-pillars are shallower than in the Cayenne while redesigned rear doors and fenders broaden the shoulders of the Cayenne Coupe (by 18 mm) to create an overall muscular impression.
The new Porsche Cayenne Coupe offers plenty of space for up to four people as standard, courtesy of a rear bench that has the characteristics of two individual seats. Rear passengers sit 30 mm lower than in the Cayenne, meaning there is plenty of headroom despite the sportier, lowered silhouette.
The Porsche Cayenne S Coupe is powered by the German sports car brand’s 3-litre V6 engine with two turbochargers. Mated to an 8-speed Tiptronic S gearbox, it sends 434 hp and 550 Nm to all four wheels. As a result of this prodigious drivetrain, the benchmark century sprint is completed in 5 seconds flat while maximum speed is 262 km/h. Even with such prodigious performance on tap, the adaptive air suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) handles all driving situations with aplomb.
On top of all that’s mentioned, our new Porsche Cayenne S Coupe is equipped with LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), full black leather interior, Comfort front seats with 14-way electrical adjustability, Compass/Sport Chrono stopwatch instrument dial in Bordeaux Red, Porsche Communication Management (PCM), navigation via Apple CarPlay, BOSE Surround Sound System and eye-catching 22-inch Cayenne Sport Classic alloy wheels in high-gloss black including wheel arch extensions.
