Porsche Cayenne Coupe spied testing

Porsche Cayenne Coupe spied testing

- Test-mule spotted for the first time

- Might launch in H1 CY 2019

It was barely a month ago that we had found out about Porsche’s plans of building a coupe-SUV based on their bestseller, the Cayenne. Well, while we though the new project would take some time to shape up, we have a prototype already undergoing real-world testing.

Looking at the prototype, it seems as if it is almost production ready, especially with the minimal camouflage and the seamless body panels. The Cayenne front has been retained almost as it is, except for the mandatory tweaks to the fascia. But unlike the SUV, the coupe has a rising shoulder line that blends with the sloping roof past the C-pillar.

We had expected a Panamera-like tail and were wondering how it might gel with the SUV lines, but Porsche being the masters of the art have sublimely blended the SUV and coupe looks. The multi-contoured notch-back also gets a deployable rear-wing and the new Porsche signature red-LED strip that run across the back. Overall, it does look sporty and proportionate unlike many of its existing competitors.

Under the hood, expect the Cayenne Coupe to get only the performance options like the 3.6-litre V6 and the 4.8-litre V8 that are force-fed to generate generous amounts of horsepower and torque. Yes. All-wheel drive would be standard as well.

Finally, looking at such a developed form of prototype, you can expect the Cayenne Coupe to debut in the first half of 2019 if not by the end of this year. In any of the cases, the Cayenne Coupe will certainly make it to India in 2019, especially with the likes of the GLC and GLE Coupe already in along with the BMW X6 and the expected Audi Q8. Well Jaguar, are you listening? A F-Pace coupe does sound interesting!
