The Porsche Cayenne Coupe is also equipped with an active spoiler on the boot, which works in conjunction with the roof-mounted spoiler.

Porsche's style-over-substance SUV cuts down on cargo area to offer a more "stylish" rear end, and while the semantics of a coupe with four doors is utterly infuriating, there is no doubt that Porsche will sell buckets of these thanks to some special features. That can extend by up to 5.3 inches, when the auto is driving at speeds of over 56 miles per hour. A fixed panoramic glass roof with a shade is standard equipment, but Porsche is introducing a carbon fiber roof option exclusively for the Coupe that looks pretty rad.

While there aren't definitive details about the suspension changes made to the Cayenne Coupe, Porsche has confirmed that all models will receive speed-sensitive power steering, 20-inch alloy wheels, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), the Sport Chrono package, Park Assist and a rear-view camera as standard. Other lightweight upgrades include 22-inch GT Design wheels, carbon fiber accents and Alcantara upholstery in the interior. In Europe, the standard Cayenne Coupe will start at €83,711, while the top-spec Turbo will run €146,662. Two engines will be offered. But it didn't take long for the SUV segment to dominate the luxury marketplace, and today, the big Cayenne's little brother-the Porsche Macan-is the best-selling model in the manufacturer's lineup. There's a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 which churns out 345PS with 450Nm of torque allowing it clock 0-100kmph in 6 seconds which can be reduced to 5.9 with the lightweight packages. That'll be good for 335 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, enough to do 0-60 miles per hour in 5.7 seconds.

Available in the 2020 Cayenne Turbo Coupe, meanwhile, is Porsche's 4.0-liter twin-turbo V7. Also standard are the eight-way Sport Seats and the rear bench (with individual seat characteristics). That kicks the power up to 541 horsepower and 567 lb-ft of torque, and cuts the 0-60 miles per hour time to 3.7 seconds. Its top speed is limited to 243kmph. That time will be cut to 5.6 seconds if one of the optional lightweight sports packages is installed; either way, top speed is 151 miles per hour. The rear bench has been converted to house two sports-style seats, giving the rear occupants a snug feeling of going along for a ride in the passenger seat of a sports auto.

Speaking of the interior, Porsche also made it a point to design every single one of its seats (including the rear) akin to what one might find in a sports auto. In the Cayenne Turbo Coupe, those numbers dip slightly to 21.2 cubic feet and 53.3 cubic feet respectively.
