Cayenne Coupé – an athletic sports car with dynamic contours



Entry into a new vehicle segment: with the world premiere of the Cayenne Coupé, Porsche is extending the third generation of its successful SUV range. The vehicle impresses with its particularly dynamic contours and new technical details, which give it a very athletic appearance.

The highlights of the new Cayenne model include sharper contours with a totally unique rear end, an adaptive rear spoiler, a rear bench with the characteristics of two individual seats with a sitting position that is lowered by 30 millimetres compared with the Cayenne. Also there is a choice of two roof concepts: a 2.16 m2 panoramic fixed glass roof fitted as standard, or optionally a contoured carbon roof with typical sports car look. The significantly steeper roof line falling to the rear makes this vehicle appear even more dynamic and visually positions it as the sportiest-looking model in the segment.
The Cayenne Coupé will be introduced with three different engine variants. The Cayenne Coupé with a six-cylinder, turbocharged engine with 250 kW (340 hp), making a standard sprint from 0-100 km/h in 6.0 seconds in combination with the standard Sport Chrono Package possible. The 2.9-litre V6 engine featuring twin turbocharging and developing 324 kW (440 hp) is at the heart of the new Cayenne S Coupé. The maximum torque of 550 Nm guarantees powerful acceleration from a standing start to 100 km/h in 5.0 seconds also in combination with the standard Sport Chrono Package. This figure drops to 4.9 seconds with the three optional lightweight sports packages. The top speed for the Cayenne S Coupé is 263 km/h. The top-of-the-range Cayenne Turbo Coupé model features a four-litre V8 engine with twin turbocharging, 404 kW (550 hp) and a maximum torque of 770 Nm, accelerating from a standing start to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds.
In addition to the Sport Chrono Package, the standard equipment includes speed-sensitive Power Steering Plus, 20-inch alloy wheels, Porsche Entry & Drive, automatically dimming exterior and interior mirrors, Park Assist at the front and rear including reversing camera and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM).
Innovative six-cylinder engine with central turbo layout
The 2.9-litre twin turbo engine of the Cayenne S Coupé delivers its maximum torque of 550 Nm across a wide engine speed range between 1,800 and 5,500 rpm. Both exhaust turbochargers have been arranged in a central turbo layout inside the cylinder V. This results in an engine with compact dimensions, allowing it to be installed in a lower position inside the vehicle. This in turn lowers the centre of gravity and improves lateral dynamics. The shortened exhaust paths between the combustion chambers and the turbochargers produce a particularly spontaneous engine response and a faster build-up in power. The exhaust manifold has been integrated into the cylinder head, which reduces the weight and means that the manifold is surrounded by coolant. This ensures highly efficient combustion, particularly under full load.

More dynamic proportions and specific design elements
A roof line that drops significantly more steeply towards the rear also lends the Cayenne S Coupé a particularly dynamic appearance. This effect is supported by a fixed roof spoiler, which accentuates the distinctive Coupé silhouette. The front windscreen and A-pillar are shallower than in the Cayenne, courtesy of a roof edge that has been lowered by around 20 millimetres. Newly designed rear doors and wings broaden the shoulders of the vehicle by 18 millimetres, contributing to its overall muscular impression. In each Cayenne Coupé model, a fixed roof spoiler is combined with the new adaptive rear spoiler as part of Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA). The spoiler is harmoniously integrated into the vehicle silhouette and extends by 135 millimetres at speeds of 90 km/h and above, increasing the downforce on the rear axle. This has benefits for driving stability.
