- Will be more expensive than Cayenne
- No diesel options
The era of timeless low slung sedans seems to be fading into oblivion with the onslaught of SUVs. And so the love for the sloping roofline has manifested itself in the form of coupe-SUVs. Weird though, they may have seemed before, coupe-SUVs are fast becoming the new norm of styling. And Porsche is not one to be left behind.
First amongst the sportscar-marquees to build an SUV, Porsche seems to have decided to add the stylish coupe to the Cayenne line-up. The rear end will take its inspiration from the Panamera and if the grapevine is to be believed, the Cayenne Coupe, or whatever they decide to name it, will make its debut by mid-2019.
Surprisingly, no test-mules of the Cayenne Coupe have been spotted testing yet, but building one quickly will not be difficult especially when there is already the Audi Q8 being built on the same platform. The sportier Cayenne will obviously be more expensive and might be powered by petrol mills only, in keeping with its sporty persona.
It will compete against the likes of the BMW X6, the pioneer of this segment and the Mercedes GLE Coupe. Range Rover also has the Velar with coupe-ish overtones, but it still like feels more of an SUV.
