Germany’s assault on the word ‘coupe’ continues this week, with Porsche unveiling the new 2020 Cayenne Coupe crossover.
The Porsche Cayenne Coupe is almost exactly the same as the standard version of the crossover, save for its rearward sloping roofline, which Porsche says makes the vehicle “appear even more dynamic, and positions it as the sportiest-looking model in the segment.”
All Cayenne Coupes will also get a standard panoramic moonroof (a carbon fiber roof is available as an optional extra) and an adaptive roof spoiler.

Reflecting the Cayenne Coupe’s sporting aspirations, all versions of the crossover also receive the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system as standard, along with the brand’s Sport Chrono Package and 20-inch alloy wheels. Options include 22-inch GT Design wheels, a lightweight exhaust system, carbon fiber and Alcantara interior trim and more.
Two versions of the Cayenne Coupe will be offered in the United States from launch: the self-named base model and the Cayenne Turbo Coupe. Entry-level models receive Porsche’s 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine, which is rated at 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, while the Cayenne Turbo Coupe gets the automaker’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 producing 541 hp and 567 lb-ft of torque.
Porsche says the base model will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.7s and top out at 151 mph, while the Turbo will do 0-60 mph in 3.7s and hit an eye-watering top speed of 178 mph.
The new Porsche Cayenne Coupe is expected to arrive in US showrooms this fall, with prices starting at $75,300 for the base model and $130,100 for the Turbo. It will make its official debut at the 2019 New York International Auto Show next month.
