Porsche Cayenne Coupe launched, new model gets two engine options
Porsche has launched the Cayenne Coupe. The new model is available with two engine options. Besides, the Coupe gets sharper lines with a unique rear section, an adaptive rear spoiler and two different roof concepts.
While the new Porsche Cayenne Coupe models are available for order now, the customers will have to contact the local Porsche centres for country specific model information, pricing and market arrival date.
The Cayenne Coupe gets a six-cylinder turbocharged 3.0-litre engine, which delivers 340 hp and 450 Nm of torque. It can make 0-100 kmph in 6.0 seconds with the sports chrono package, while with the optional lightweight sports package, 0-100 kmph can be achieved in 5.9 seconds. The Cayenne Coupe can touch a maximum speed of 243 kmph.
The Cayenne Turbo Coupe is available with a 4.0-litre V8 engine with twin-turbo charging. This mill is good for 550 hp and 770 Nm of torque. It can accelerate from 0-100 kmph in 3.9 seconds and touch a top speed of 286 kmph.
"The Coupe 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," Porsche AG Executive Board Chairman Oliver Blume.
The front windscreen and A-pillar on the Cayenne Coupe are shallower than in the Cayenne, thanks to a roof edge that has been lowered by around 20 millimetres. Redesigned rear doors and fenders broaden the shoulders of this vehicle by 18 millimetres. The rear number plate is integrated into the bumper.
Porsche Style Vice President Michael Mauer said: "The significantly more steep roof line that falls away to the rear makes the Cayenne Coupe appear even more dynamic and positions it as the sportiest-looking model in the segment." A roof spoiler accentuates the distinctive coupe silhouette. On each Cayenne Coupe model, the roof spoiler is combined with a new adaptive rear spoiler as part of Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA). The spoiler extends by 135 mm at speeds of 90 kmph and up, increasing the contact pressure on the rear axle, while PAA simultaneously enhances efficiency.
The new Cayenne Coupe comes with a 2.16 m2 panoramic fixed glass roof as standard. A contoured carbon roof is optionally available for the Coupe. The carbon roof is available in one of the three lightweight sports packages. These packages also include the sport design features and new 22-inch GT design wheels, seat centres in classic checked fabric as well as carbon and Alcantara accents in the interior. For the Cayenne Turbo Coupe, the package also includes a sports exhaust system.
There is plenty of space for up to four people in the new Cayenne Coupe. At the front, there are new eight-way sports seats with integrated headrests. In the rear, the new Coupe comes fitted with a rear bench that has the characteristics of two individual seats. The Coupe gets a 625-litre boot and the space can be increased to 1,540 litres with the rear seats folded down.
