Enter a new vehicle segment with the world premiere of the Cayenne Coupé. The vehicle impresses with its particularly dynamic contours and new technical details, which gives it a very athletic appearance.
“The Coupé 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 Cayenne model include sharper lines with a totally unique rear section, an adaptive rear spoiler, a rear bench with the characteristics of two individual seats, and two different roof concepts – a panoramic fixed glass roof fitted as standard, and an optional carbon roof.
Proportions that are more dynamic combine with custom design elements to lend the new Cayenne Coupé an unrivalled elegance. “The significantly steeper roof line that falls away to the rear makes the Cayenne Coupé appear even more dynamic, and positions it as the sportiest-looking model in the segment,” says Michael Mauer, Vice President Style at Porsche.
That effect is supported by a roof spoiler, which accentuates the distinctive Coupé silhouette. The front windscreen and A-pillar are shallower than in the Cayenne, courtesy of a roof edge that has been lowered by around 20 millimeters. Redesigned rear doors and fenders broaden the shoulders of this vehicle by 18 millimeters, contributing to its overall muscular impression. The rear number plate is integrated into the bumper, making the vehicle seem closer to the ground.
With its adaptive roof spoiler, the current Cayenne Turbo was the first SUV to feature this type of active aerodynamics. The new Cayenne Coupé picks up that ball and runs with it. On each Cayenne Coupé model, a roof spoiler is combined with a new adaptive rear spoiler as part of Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA). The spoiler – harmonically integrated into this model’s silhouette – extends by 135 mm at speeds of 56 mph and up, increasing the contact pressure on the rear axle, while PAA simultaneously enhances efficiency.
The new Cayenne Coupé offers plenty of space for up to four people as standard. At the front, the new eight-way sports seats with integrated head rests offer exceptional comfort and optimum lateral support. In the rear, the Coupé comes fitted as standard with a rear bench that has the characteristics of two individual seats. Alternatively, the comfort rear seats – a familiar feature of the Cayenne – can be ordered at no additional cost. Rear passengers sit 30 millimeters lower than in the Cayenne, meaning there is plenty of headroom despite the vehicle’s sporty lowered silhouette.
The highly dynamic lines and custom design elements of the new Cayenne Coupé truly set it apart from the Cayenne. At the same time, it benefits from all the technical highlights of the third model generation, which features powerful drive systems, innovative chassis systems, a digitalized display and operating concept, and comprehensive connectivity.
The Cayenne Coupé will be available with three different engine variants at its market launch: a six-cylinder, turbocharged engine with 355 horsepower, making a sprint from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds possible. A twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine with 434 horsepower and a 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds. And a four-liter V8 engine with twin turbocharging in the top-of-the-range Cayenne Turbo Coupé model with 541 horsepower and accelerating from a standing start to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds.
The extensive standard equipment includes speed-sensitive Power Steering Plus, 20-inch alloy wheels, Park Assist at the front and rear including reversing camera, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), and the Sport Chrono Package.
