Porsche has revealed the Cayenne Coupe 2020 before its global launch. Before you ask us is it substantially different from the stock Cayenne, let us be upfront and tell you no, it is not. As a matter of fact, the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe and the normal Porsche Cayenne are very similar except the fact that aesthetically the Cayenne Coupe looks more- sporty, however at the price of practicality.
In the Cayenne Coupe, a steep roof line falls away into an angled rear window, similar to the Audi Q8. Porsche claims this makes the car appear "more dynamic, and positions it as the sportiest-looking model in the segment."
The Cayenne Coupe borrows heavily from the Cayenne Coupe turbo, firstly the adaptive roof spoiler which makes the SUV, first in its segment to have active aerodynamics. The spoiler opens variably once the Cayenne Coupe hits the 90 km/hr mark. This increases the downforce on the rear axle apt for sport cruising on the autobahns. This constitutes as part of Porsche’s famous Porsche Active Aerodynamics feature which was introduced way back with the 911 turbo model.
Similar to that of the Porsche Cayenne, the Cayenne Coupe will be powered by two petrol engines globally. First up is the 3.0- litre V6 turbo engine which belts out 335bhp of max power and 332 lb ft of torque. The second one, the petrol guzzler is the mammoth 4.0- litre V8 turbo engine with a whopping 542bhp of max power and 568 lb ft of torque.
Porsche has yet to detail out the suspension changes it’s made towards the Cayenne Coupe, however it has confirmed that all models of the Coupe will receive speed- sensitive power steering, 20-inch alloys, Porsche active suspension management, the Sport chrono package, Park Assist and a rear- view camera as standard.
Globally, the Cayenne Coupe will rival the likes of the BMW X6 M, Mercedes AMG GLE 63 S Coupe in terms of price and performance.
The global launch of the Cayenne Coupe is scheduled in mid- May this year, however official statement on India launch of the product is still not available.
