“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.
