Porsche Cayenne Coupe 2020 revealed

Porsche finally makes a coupe version of the Cayenne SUV.

Porsche has revealed a coupe version of its Cayenne SUV, which has been confirmed to go on sale in Australia in early 2020 priced from $128,400 plus on-road costs.

Based on the standard Cayenne but with a tapered rear profile, the first-ever Cayenne Coupe will go up against the Audi Q8, BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe in the world of large swoopy-roofed luxury SUVs. 

The Cayenne Coupe sits 20mm lower than its SUV sibling at 1676mm tall. Its rear shoulders are 18mm wider for a more muscular look, while its overall 4918mm length and 2895mm wheelbase are unchanged compared to the standard version of the Cayenne. 

Boot space has been reduced to 625 litres for the Cayenne and 600 litres for the Cayenne Turbo, down from 770L in the standard versions. Seats down, up to 1540L is available (down from 1710L).

The Cayenne Coupe is equipped with the Sport Chrono Package as standard. The Cayenne Coupe is equipped with the Sport Chrono Package as standard.

Initially the Cayenne Coupe will be offered in two variants - Cayenne and Cayenne Turbo. The Cayenne is powered by a 250kW/450Nm twin-turbo 3.0-litre petrol six, and the Cayenne Turbo uses a 404kW/770Nm 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8. The Cayenne sprints from 0-100km/h from a standstill in 5.9 seconds, while the Turbo is a full two seconds faster, at a claimed 3.9 seconds. The Cayenne hits a top speed of 243km/h, and the Turbo 286km/h.

More engine variants for the Cayenne Coupe are likely throughout its lifetime, including a more powerful Turbo S, and a 500kW/850Nm plug-in hybrid V8 from the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. As with the standard Cayenne, no diesel models will be offered. 

Priced $15,000 higher than the Cayenne SUV, Porsche says that the increased price for the coupe includes more equipment, as well as an adaptive rear spoiler that raises at above 90km/h, a four-seat layout which positions rear passengers 30mm lower than the regular Cayenne and, of course, the new look. 

The Cayenne Coupe offers an optional carbon fibre roof. The Cayenne Coupe offers an optional carbon fibre roof.

Standard equipment additions over the regular Cayenne include upgraded sports steering, 20-inch alloy wheels for the Cayenne and 22s for the Turbo, adaptive dampers, a panoramic glass roof and the Sport Chrono Package with a Sport Plus driving mode and both a digital and analogue stopwatch.

A carbon-fibre roof is also available optionally for the first time, which Porsche says lowers the car’s centre of gravity and increases overall ride and handling. 

The optional carbon fibre roof reduces the centre of gravity, according to Porsche. The optional carbon fibre roof reduces the centre of gravity, according to Porsche.
