Speaking during the launch event, Pavan Shetty, Director – Porsche India said: “We are delighted to unveil the Cayenne Coupé for the first time here in India. A truly worthy addition, this model offers the option of an extra sporty variant within our SUV range. The Cayenne Coupé also reinforces the evolutionary approach Porsche takes to developing its sports cars for the new era. Inheriting the same technical capabilities implemented in the third generation Cayenne, alongside a sharpened design, the Cayenne Coupé is more progressive, athletic, and emotional in its own right. I have no doubt that this impressive model will generate interest amongst current Porsche owners and enthusiasts alike.”
Athletic design and style
The new Cayenne Coupé comes with a 2.16 m2 panoramic fixed glass roof as standard. The 0.92 m2 glazed area gives all passengers an extraordinary sense of space, while the integrated roller blind protects against sun exposure and the cold. A contoured carbon roof is optionally available for the Coupé. The centre seam gives the roof the characteristic look of a sports car, similar to the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The carbon roof is available in one of the three lightweight sports packages. These packages also include the Sport Design features and new, weight-reduced 55.8 cm (22”) GT Design wheels, seat centres in classic checked fabric, as well as carbon and Alcantara accents in the interior. For the Cayenne Turbo Coupé, the package also includes a sports exhaust system
On each Cayenne Coupé model, a fixed roof spoiler is combined with the new adaptive rear spoiler as part of Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA). The spoiler is integrated into the vehicle silhouette and extends by 135 millimetres at speeds of 90 km/h and above, increasing the downforce on the rear axle and thus enhancing driving stability.
Turbocharged engines and eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission
Achieving a top speed of 243 km/h, the Cayenne Coupé is driven by a three-litre V6 turbo engine with an output of 340 hp and a maximum torque of 450 Nm. The model accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 6.0 seconds, with the figure dropping to 5.9 seconds if one of the three optional lightweight sports packages has been chosen.
The top-of-the-range Cayenne Turbo Coupé features a four-litre V8 engine with twin-turbo charging, resulting in 550 hp and maximum torque of 770 Nm. A zero to 100 km/h sprint is achieved in 3.9 seconds, alongside a top speed of 286 km/h.
All three Cayenne Coupé models feature Porsche’s eight-speed Tiptronic S gearbox. Shorter response times and sportier ratios in the lower gears enhance both on-road performance and off-road capability. At the other end of the spectrum, the long-transmission eighth gear ensures low torques, optimised fuel consumption and relaxed driving.
