Porsche reportedly planning a five-door Cayenne Coupe

BMW has the X6 and Mercedes-Benz will soon unveil a production version of the Concept Coupe SUV.

According to Autocar, Porsche plans a new five-door Cayenne coupe as part of expanded Cayenne SUV family.

The Cayenne Coupe (development name) will be positioned as a more sporting alternative to the regular Cayenne with a same range of petrol and diesel engines with 550+bhp in the Turbo S model. There will be also plug-in petrol-electric and diesel-electric hybrid powertrains available in the new Cayenne model.

This new model is reportedly scheduled for 2018, when the new third-generation Cayenne arrives.

“We have been considering launching a more sporting derivative of the Cayenne for some time now,” a senior Porsche official revealed. “The problem has been the production capacity at our Leipzig factory and the strong sales of the regular Cayenne.”

Te Cayenne coupé is expected to feature an edgier look, lower ride height, lower height and a sloping coupe like roofline, with overall styling inspired by the 918 Spyder.

The interior will be shared with the standard Cayenne, while the chassis could be modified for a more sportier ride.
