Porsche Cayenne Coupe May Arrive in 2018

By | May 05, 2014
According to a report from Autocar, Porsche will introduce a Cayenne coupe as soon as 2018. The Porsche Cayenne coupe will feature a dramatically sloped roofline, narrow glasshouse, and an overall sportier look compared to the traditional Cayenne. This new model will compete against the likes of the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz MLC. Multiple engine options will be available on the Cayenne coupe, including a wide range of gas and diesel engines. A diesel-electric and a traditional plug-in hybrid model are also expected. The new Cayenne coupe will also feature a revised chassis intended to give the car a lower center of gravity. Exterior and interior styling for this new model will be inspired by the 918 Spyder. Although it has not yet been given the final go-ahead for production, experts predict it is likely to receive the green light. Design proposals for the new model are reportedly "at an advanced phase." Adding onto this, more investments are expected to increase production capacity at Porsche's Leipzig plant at the same time the new Cayenne arrives in 2017, and this could also help make a case for the new coupe. If the new coupe comes to market, it could cost 15 to 20 percent more than the current Cayenne, which is priced at just below $50,000. Just like its competition, we expect the Porsche Cayenne coupe will be a niche product in the luxury auto sector. Source: Autocar
