Default Porsche Cayenne Coupe unveiled

Porsche has unveiled the new Cayenne Coupe. Based on the third generation Cayenne, the Coupe has a more sloping roofline compared to the standard car.

The front end of the Cayenne Coupe is identical to the standard model. It features a set of sweptback LED headlights and a front bumper with three rectangular air vents. The A-pillars are shorter as the roof edge has been lowered by 20 mm. It has redesigned rear doors and fenders that extend the shoulder by 18 mm. The roofline gently slopes towards the rear and features a roof spoiler. Additionally, the Coupe comes with a second spoiler – an active spoiler similar to the standard car, which extends by 135 mm at speeds of 90 km/h. The slim tail lights with the light bar in the centre are similar to the ones on the standard Cayenne.

The Cayenne Coupe comes with a fixed glass panoramic roof. However, a contoured carbon roof is available as an option with one of three lightweight sports packages. The Sport Design package comes with new lightweight 22-inch GT Design wheels, checked fabric upholstery and carbon and Alcantara interior trim. A sports exhaust system comes standard with this package on the Cayenne Turbo Coupe.

The interior of the Cayenne Coupe is similar to the standard SUV. It has a touchscreen infotainment system in the centre and a 3-spoke multi-function steering wheel, while the rear seat has been lowered by 30 mm to liberate some headroom. Features such as Speed sensitive Power Steering Plus, 20-inch alloy wheels Park Assist, reversing camera, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Sport Chrono Package are offered as standard.

Porsche simply blew the GLC, GLE, X4, X6 coupes out of the game as far as the design is concerned. Best looking among those 'SUV coupe' contraption things! Could be my soft corner for Porsche talking but they pulled off that hunchback and spoiler pretty nicely.
I think this is going bring in loads of money for Porsche similar to the Macan.

Will have to wait till the reviews to see if it drives better than the X6M. I think it will while also being the most expensive car in segment, typical Porsche fashion

I seriously don't understand the mindset of kind of people buy these SUV Coupe's. Personally I think most of them look horrible.
They remind of the "Shrek" for some reason or rather HULK with a hump on his back.
The worst offenders are the ones from Mercedes (the GLC &GLE Coupe's ) and BMW X6 who I think started this horrible body style with the original X6. They are not capable of doing any thing properly neither offroading nor handling nor the practicality of normal SUV's. The only thing these vehicles does scream "I'm rich".
The only company that has pulled of the SUV coupe design well is Audi with their new Q8 and this Porche cayan coupe to some extent.
As a person who values good design, this trend is absolutely annoying and stand right up there with our own sub 4-metre sedan trend in the list of trends that should die as soon as possible.

At least BMW SUV coupes are based on the same platform as the regular SUV's Eg. X4 based on X3 and X6 on X5 if Im not mistaken so wouldnt they be as good or as bad as what they are based on?

This looks way better than any of the other so called "coupe's". The BMW X6 for example is ghastly!

Looks are subjective and, therefore, not a debate-worthy subject from my point of view. One can question the rationale behind this body style, but it makes a rather compelling commercial case for manufacturers, which is why we’ve seen a surge in the number of options in this segment. These cars definitely offer lower practicality than the ones they’re based on, but there’s no drop in performance/ability, as they’re identical mechanically. It is clearly for people who love sports cars’ looks, want SUVs’ capability, can live with slightly compromised practicality, and afford the unreasonable premium.
