A couple of minutes ago, representatives of the German Porsche officially presented the coupe-shaped version of the Cayenne crossover. With this car, the leadership of the automaker has high hopes. The price of new items will be slightly higher than the usual performance of a mid-size crossover.

Instead of presenting the Cayenne Coupe crossover at the Geneva Motor Show, the German company Porsche decided to organize a small special event in Stuttgart (Germany). There, the novelty was demonstrated for the first time.

As a competitor to the BMW X6 and Mercedes GLE Coupe coupe-shaped crossovers, the Cayenne Coupe was officially unveiled at the car showroom in the Chinese city of Shanghai a couple of minutes ago.

The new Cayenne mid-size crossover will call for more profit for Porsche. Conventional crossover models of the brand – the compact Macan and the same Cayenne, of course, are the best-selling models in the lineup. But according to analysts of the German automaker, it is the Porsche Cayenne Coupe that should be more popular than the rest of the public.

Available in four or five-seater performance, the Cayenne Coupe will be offered first with only two motors. We are talking about a basic 6-cylinder engine producing 335 hp. and powerful turbo V8 power 542 hp A bit later, the Turbo S E-Hybrid will be introduced, with a hybrid installation based on the V8, which in turn was borrowed from the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid – there its power is 680 hp. and 850 Nm.

Compared to the standard Cayenne, the “coupe” version should provide a more sporty appearance – due to the low roofline, the rear passengers will sit 30 mm lower. The novelty also received a massive panoramic glass roof, offered as standard, which, if desired, can be replaced with a carbon fiber roof.
