Porsche’s new Cayenne model, due in ’19, looks like it’ll give the BMW X6 and Mercedes GLE Coupe a run for their money. Rumor has it sales in the UK will begin as early as the 4th quarter in 2019. The Cayenne coupe is going to much resemble its sibling and be built at the Leipzig, Germany Porsche factory.
The new model Cayenne will get the front-end style of its sister model, the 3rd gen Cayenne, but the front bumper will be an all new design. It will, however, feature a lift-back style tailgate, much like its rivals. New rear and side windows and the redesigned tailgate will give it an updated, more sporty style much like the 2nd gen Panamera.
Coming to the road with a 440bhp version of the twin-turbo 2.9 liter V6 or the 550bhp twin-turbo 4 liter V8 it’s clear that Porsche intends the new Cayenne as a performance model. As of yet no diesel version of the model are in the works.
