Porsche Cayenne Coupe is Coming and We Have the Spy Photos to Prove It

3

“Coupe” SUVs are seriously on trend right now, and it looks like Porsche is going to jump on the bandwagon with a Cayenne Coupe to compete with the BMW X6 and Mercedes GLE Coupe.

Spy photographers have caught a coupe version of the German automaker’s popular large SUV testing with a raked roofline for the first time. Looking like a taller and jacked-up Panamera with 911 tail lights, this mule gives us a preview of what a Cayenne Coupe could look like.

The coupe version of the SUV will likely have the same powertrain and trim options as the regular Cayenne, but will probably be sold at a premium and focus more on sporty driving dynamics. Coupe-ified versions of SUVs are typically more expensive, despite not being as practical.

A new, third-generation Cayenne built on a new platform is expected to debut in 2017 as a 2018 model year vehicle, and the coupe version will probably debut a year after that.

    with the camo, the odd suspension / rear ride height – in this shot – it is shaping up to be one real fugly vehicle

    As a Cayenne owner, I think this is a mistake! Coupe-SUV’s have very little cargo capacity!

    Looks like a blown up Panamera instead of a shrunken Cayenne.
