The rumors turned out to be true, Porsche is really working on the Cayenne Coupe! The test prototype caught photoplayers on the roads of Stuttgart. Judging by the photos, the model of 2020 will borrow the roof from Macan, and the stern from Panamera.
The front of the prototype seen on the tests is similar to the standard Cayenne, but the windshield, rear and side windows are obviously different. It seems that Porsche decided to create a more sporting style for Cayenne.
Information on the future novelty is very small, but we assume that a six-cylinder engine will be installed under the hood. Will it be a 3.0-liter V6 or a 2.9-liter V6, we do not know for sure. But we are confident that Porsche will install a 4.0-liter V8 for the Turbo version. In addition, a top version with a powerful plug-in hybrid is expected. capable of developing up to 680 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque.
A green light from Oliver Blum, Porsche Chief Executive Officer, has already been received and it is expected that the Cayenne Coupe will debut in the second half of 2019 as the 2020 model year car. The Cayenne Coupe will compete with the Audi Q8, the BMW X6 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe.
It is assumed that the all-wheel drive system will already have standard equipment, but the main axle can be the rear axle, and the front axle will be connected as needed. And production will be arranged at the plant in Leipzig, where the standard Cayenne is already produced.
The Cayenne Coupe will be built on the Volkswagen Group MLB Evo platform and will be delivered as standard with the eight-speed automatic transmission of the Tiptronic S. As for the interior, it is expected that it will not change much, but the sloping roof will significantly steal a place above the head of the rear passengers. The capacity of the luggage compartment may also suffer.
Meanwhile, Porsche is preparing to introduce its first electric vehicle Taycan (Mission E), and the network repeatedly appeared spy photos of the future novelty. But now we can see how the serial version can look in the exclusive version.
