Spy’s Get Details on New Porsche Cayenne Coupe’

Porche is ramping up to unveil a coupe model of the Cayenne SUV in the next few months and a prototype has been sighted on winter testing grounds.

Spied previously at Nurburging and presenting a retracting spoiler, the Cayenne coupe is aiming its sights at the BMW X6 and Mercedes GLE Coupe’. Expanding the palette of the Cayenne offerings it is expected to share most of its features with its more traditional brothers and sisters.

The pictures capture by a “spy” demonstrate that coupe’ maintains its siblings front-end design, but a different bumper. In a decision reflecting its target-rivals. Yet, it has a different, liftback gate, new rear side windows and tail-lights. All of this to provide a more “sporty” design.

The retractable rear spoiler, which spies had only seen before in its down position, looks like it raises and lowers as one piece, unlike the split design on the 2nd gen. Panamera.
All in all an interesting offering from Porsche

New Porsche Cayenne to Best Competitors?

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.
