The Porsche Cayenne lineup grows a little bigger today with the addition of a Coupe variant. Joining the likes of the Cayenne Turbo and e-Hybrid, the 2020 Cayenne Coupe still utilizes a four-door setup, but with a lower roofline. Rear doors and quarter panels are redesigned to “broaden the shoulders of the vehicle.”
Many of the Coupe’s standard features are taken from the Cayenne Turbo including an adaptation of the active rear spoiler. In this application, it joins forces with a fixed roof spoiler and extends over 5-inches. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Sport Chrono Package and 20” wheels are also standard equipment. Rear seat passengers can enjoy “comfort rear seats” as a no-cost option over the traditional bench seating.
The Cayenne Coupe can be had with either the base 3.0L turbocharged V6 with 335 horsepower or a twin-turbo 4.0L V8 with a stout 541 horsepower. The latter engine is said to be capable of zero to sixty sprints in just 3.7 seconds.
While this is Porsche’s first foray into “coupe” SUV territory, Germany luxury brands like Mercedes-Benz and BMW have been selling them for years in the form of the GLE Coupe and X6. The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe will go on sale this fall starting at $75,300 with the Turbo model coming in at $130,100.
