Cayenne Coupe - a Cayenne reimagined

The third generation Cayenne now includes a new, sleeker body style, reinforcing its performance credentials

The Cayenne Coupe is based on same proven platform as the Cayenne SUV, using the same running gear and front interior layout.

Designers in the 'Porsche Style' department have incorporated the iconic Porsche silhouette into the Coupe, but also maintained the versatility for which the Cayenne is well known.

With the new Cayenne Coupe, Porsche aims to not only keep, but to enhance, the sporting character of the car.

Clever packaging has ensured headroom has not been compromised. The rear seats have been lowered by 30mm to offer ample headroom, even with a roof line that is 20mm lower than the Cayenne SUV.

With the existing engine range of 2.9L, 3.0L & 4.0L engines, coupled to the 8-speed Tiptronic transmission and using the Porsche 4D chassis control system that monitors the Porsche Active Dampers and controls all the aspects of the chassis, the Cayenne Coupe ensures both performance and versatility are provided.

Suspension tuning to add slightly more track and a new wheel and tyre package that include four different sets of 22-inch wheels means the Cayenne Coupe is even more dynamic than the already sporty Cayenne.

With active aerodynamic elements at the front and rear of the Cayenne Coupe, both balance and high-speed stability are at a level you would expect from a sports Coupe.

With a top speed of 286km/h in the Cayenne Turbo Coupe, it provides the confidence that only comes from having a true sportscar braking system, like the system developed for the Cayenne Turbo, the Porsche Surface Coated Brake system featuring 415 mm rotors clamped by 10 Piston calipers as standard.

Options include Four Wheel Steering, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) active stabilisers, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) active dampers, 10 Piston 440mm Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes (PCCB) braking system and Sports Chrono.

The Cayenne Coupe has a 'light weight' package available that includes the forged 22-inch wheels, PCCB and even a Carbon fibre roof to replace the standard full Panoramic glass roof (that includes a full sun shade).

A fully integrated infotainment system with a 12-inch touch screen, satellite navigation and telephone functions keep drivers connected with the outside world, including a 7-inch map just to the right of the central tachometer in the instrument cluster.

What the press say

(full review here.)

"With adaptive air suspension and active anti-roll control, the Turbo Coupe turns in quickly to corners for a car of these dimensions and weight. It treads firmly and seems nailed to the road – you could be driving something lighter and lower." 
- Phil King, The Australian (full review here)

"There’s a lot of stylistic massaging and subtle enhancement to get the coupe look ‘right’."
- Curt Dupriez, CarAdvice.com.au (full review here)
