Is Porsche ready to launch a aspirant to a BMW X6 and Mercedes GLE Coupe? According to Autocar, a coupe various of a arriving 2019 Cayenne could go on sale as early as subsequent year.
Unlike a 911 and Cayman, that are tangible coupes, a Porsche Cayenne coupe adopts a lax clarification put onward by a other Germans: a four-door SUV with a fashionable hatch. Up front and underneath, a coupe would be scarcely matching to a Cayenne counterpart, save for a singular front fender design. But past a behind doors, a roof would finish off in thespian fashion, adding a hold of sportiness (and shortening load space in a process). The Cayenne coupe would finish a mutation out behind with a taillight pattern suggestive of a Panamera.
Underneath a hood, a Porsche Cayenne coupe would bypass a bottom 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 in preference of a some-more absolute 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6 with 440 hp found in a Cayenne S, as good as a claim Turbo indication commanding a operation with a 550-hp 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8. Both engines would be corresponding exclusively to an eight-speed involuntary transmission.
If Autocar’s sources are correct, a Cayenne coupe would go on sale in a U.K. in a fourth entertain of 2019. Given a success of a X6 and GLE Coupe stateside, U.S. sales would fundamentally follow. We reached out to Porsche for criticism and were rewarded with a neutral “we can’t assume on destiny product during this time.” Is that a acknowledgment or denial? Stay tuned.
