Scroll your eyes all you want, readers, the "coupe" flavor SUV is here to stay. Or at least it doesn't go away anytime soon. The success of cut-off rollers like the BMW X6 andmeans that others come in on the fun, and Porsche is the one to reveal this, 2020 Cayenne Coupe.
Already among the more excited drives in its category, Cayenne's Coupe flavor gets a more targeted look to match. At its highest, it is 20 millimeters lower than the regular Cayenne, but the roof weakens heavily from there, cutting the back of the head thoroughly and cutting a good deal of luggage capacity along the way: 22 cubic feet with the seats up, down from 27.
To compensate for the loss of rear height, the Porsche lowered the rear seat by 30mm. Not enough for me, unfortunately, as I could not comfortably fit in the back of the Coupe. For reference, I have no problem in thebut then I sit higher than my 6-foot height may indicate. Most normal people will not feel the difference. However, they will notice the new rear bench, which has a plastic tray that separates the left and right seats, which means that this is now officially a four-seat. The standard Cayenne's bench is still available as a free option, but the slider mechanism was nailed in search of the extra 30 mm.
These seats are optionally wrapped in Porsche's iconic "pepita" pattern, which everyone (including myself) will just continue to call houndstooth.

A glass roof is standard, but to save weight, Coupe buyers can designate a carbon fiber plate rather than as part of "lightweight sports packages" – a curious nomenclature for a vehicle weighing somewhere north of 4,300 pounds. The carbon footprint and the other light tweaks shave about 45 pounds of that figure.
Kraft comes from one of Cayenne's pairs of engines, starting with 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 with 335 horsepower and 332 pound-foot torque. The Cayenne Coupe Turbo comes up with 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 with 541 horsepower and 567 pound-foot torque. It's plenty of power, but apart from the more aggressive wheels and standard active suspension, don't expect Cayenne Coupe to run any differently than its normal cousin. The coupe has exactly the same suspension hardware and tune, which means this is about the look.
And how much will the look cost you? The starting price of the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe is $ 75,300. It's almost $ 10,000 more than a Cayenne base, but remember you get some options thrown into the mix. Coupe Turbo, meanwhile, starts at $ 130,100, and don't forget the extra $ 1,250 delivery on both. Look for these coupes in dealerships in the fall, and idle down town streets soon thereafter.
