PostHeaderIcon Porsche Cayenne Coupe

split831930

The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe is a sleek, coupe-style version of the familiar Cayenne SUV and the German company’s competitor for the BMW X6, Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, and the Audi Q8. Unveiled in 2019, it goes on sale for the 2020 model year with drivetrains borrowed from the regular Cayenne. Design-wise, it has a much sleeker rear end, but Porsche also altered the front fascia, which looks a bit more aggressive than the regular SUV.

Aimed at premium crossovers built by German companies, the Cayenne Coupe benefits from all the features available with the regular Cayenne. However, this SUV offers limited headroom for rear-seat passengers and has a slightly smaller trunk. Does it have what it takes to give the X6, GLE Coupe, and Q8 a run for their money? Let’s find out in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Is the Continuation of a Dumb Segment

It’s no secret that I’m not exactly the biggest performance SUV fan. On more than one occasion I’ve likened the segment to training elephants to tap dance (sure you can do it, but what’s the point?). To me, an SUV is really good at carrying lots of people and stuff, occasionally good at going off-road, and that’s about it. Sure, you can stuff it with power and mechanical grip and every speed trick in the book to make it fast, but in the end, if it’s performance that you’re after, you’re better off with a smaller, lighter platform, preferably something specifically designed for the job. To make matters worse, the SUV “Coupe” segment almost always hurts one the SUV’s biggest strengths (interior room) to bolster one of its biggest weaknesses (styling). And to me, that’s dumb.

Did the world really need a Porsche Cayenne with a “steeply sloping,” fastback-style roof and more squatted rear end? Apparently, it did because the new Cayenne Coupe is real and has just broken cover with its sights firmly set on the BMW X6, Mercedes GLE Coupe, Lamborghini Urus, and Audi Q8.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Rumored to Debut In a Matter of Weeks

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe is a natural evolution for the nameplate, taking on a sportier exterior to help draw in more customers to an already booming segment. Now, we hear rumors that the new Stuttgart crossover could make its big public appearance later this month.

PostHeaderIcon The Worlds Best Super SUVs

The term “super SUV” is relatively new in the automotive lexicon, but its use has exploded in popularity with the rush of high-end models that have filled its ranks. From the Bentley Bentayga to the Lamborghini Urus, we’ve seen no shortage of super SUVs hit the market in recent years. Super SUVs are the most extravagant breed of SUVs you can find on the market. They have interiors that can rival those that are found in luxury cars, and they have performance capabilities that border on supercar levels. They also have premium price tags, something that we should expect given their status. This is our list of the best super SUVs in the market today, and, who knows, you might end up in the market for one sooner than you think.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Cayenne Coupe

The Porsche Cayenne Coupe is the company’s much-rumored competitor for the BMW X6, Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, and the recently unveiled Audi Q8. Rumored to break cover for the 2020 model year, the Cayenne Coupe seems to be a sleeker Cayenne with a coupe-style roof and minor changes to the design. The crossover was spotted on public roads in many forms in recent years.

Rumors of Porsche working on a competitor for the BMW X6 surfaced a few years ago, right before the Germans launched the mid-cycle upgrade for the second-generation Cayenne. Although original reports claimed a 2015 launch, Porsche’s competitor for the BMW X6 failed to show up. In the meantime, Mercedes-Benz came up with its very own proposition, the GLE Coupe. Not much is known about the Cayenne Coupe at this point, but it’s expected to use the same underpinnings as the standard Cayenne, as well as the same drivetrains. The name is not yet official so you should take the “Cayenne Coupe” nameplate with a grain of salt, but this badge is very likely given that the sleek crossover will be part of the same family. We’re still waiting for Porsche to confirm the new SUV, but until that happens, we created a rendering of the upcoming vehicle, as well as a speculative review about what it may bring to the table.

Updated 02/11/2019: Our spy photographers caught the upcoming Cayenne Coupe out for a testing session during cold winter conditions.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche’s Newest Showroom Has Room For Exactly One Car

To date, Porsche has more than 700 dealerships all over the world, including 100 showrooms in China alone. The German automaker is also adept at creating pop-up stores, and the newest example just opened at the top of the French Alps. The store sits 7,500 feet above sea level, making it the world’s highest pop-up store. More importantly, it’s not actually a store in the traditional use of the word. It’s nothing more than a small dome enclosure that can fit one Porsche Cayenne.


Porsche's Newest Showroom Has Room For Exactly One Car - image 769515
“The store has a hostess and a product specialist, the latter of whom can answer whatever question you have about the Cayenne”

If you think this is nothing but a gimmick by Porsche, you’d be right and wrong. The whole idea of a pop-up store at the top of the French Alps has “gimmick” written all over it, but it’s also a functioning store located in the alpine resort of Meribel. The store has a hostess and a product specialist, the latter of whom can answer whatever question you have about the Cayenne. The specialist can even book you for a test drive along the mountain roads in the area.

As for the dome itself, it’s not your typical tipi tent that you can buy at Target or Walmart. According to Porsche, it was built to withstand extreme weather conditions, including heavy snowfall and temperatures that can drop to as low as minus 25 (-25) degrees Celsius. At that altitude, the dome can also withstand 100-mph winds, something the Cayenne will probably need for its own survival.

Building the dome was also just one part of the complex puzzle that needed to be solved in order to create the presentation. The other important aspect was bringing all the structural components up to the top of the French Alps. On that end, Porsche actually airlifted these components by helicopter and pulled the Cayenne into place using snowmobiles.

“The store itself will remain in the resort until April 2018.”

All that hard work resulted in one of the most unusual Porsche pop-up shops in the world. It’s probably not the most effective way of spending marketing dollars, but it did get the job done as far as getting people to talk or, in this case, write about it. The store itself will remain in the resort until April 2018. So, if you happen to be in the area, be on the lookout for a Porsche Cayenne encased in a small dome, sitting on top of the French Alps. Considering how it looks, it wouldn’t be too hard to find it.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Porsche has a history of making absurd vehicles, but this might take the cake – at least for now. It’s the new 2019 Cayenne Turbo and it packs 550 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged V-8 that turns all four wheels while four-wheel steering and active aero bodywork scramble to keep it pointing straight. Think of it as the playboy’s version of the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

Porsche pulled the covers off the new high-powered SUV at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show to a crowd of gleeful onlookers. No doubt people fawn on whatever Porsche attaches its crest too, including tall SUVs and four-door sedans with a hybrid powertrain. Granted, the German automaker generally knows how to screw a vehicle together, but Porsche has certainly been carving out new territory over the last 17 years. As for the new Cayenne Turbo, well, it’s muy caliente, so keep reading for the juicy details. You’ll find it includes rear-wheel steering, a new three-chamber air suspension, and a 48-volt electronic roll stabilization system.

PostHeaderIcon The Porsche Cayenne: A Leap of Faith Becomes a Complete Success

14 years isn’t a long time in the industry, but it does feel like it with the Porsche Cayenne. I know it’s only just gotten to its third-generation, but for a car that made a polarizing debut in 2003, it sure seems like it’s been around a lot longer than that. Most of you probably know that the third-gen Cayenne was just unveiled during a spectacular launch in Stuttgart, Germany, and as far as new model unveilings are concerned, this is as big as it’s going to get. More than any other model, the Cayenne is considered the model that really ushered in premium SUVs in the market. It was the first SUV from a regarded premium automaker to make that plunge into the SUV market, and while it had its ups and downs in the early years, it’s ended up arguably being Porsche’s most important model.

I saw what the third-gen Cayenne looks like and it looks positively tasty. Hard to imagine that it looks the way it does now when the first-gen model, at least with the benefit of hindsight, wasn’t all that attractive. It did pack a punch though, and a pretty potent one that. Taking the good with the bad, Porsche nevertheless deserves a ton of credit for investing heavily on the Cayenne when the first impulse back then was to gag at the thought of a Porsche SUV. 14 years and three generations later, the Porsche Cayenne is still standing at the top of the premium SUV market. It’s come a long way, that’s for sure.

Continue after the jump to read the full story.

PostHeaderIcon The Third-Gen Porsche Cayenne Makes a Symphonious Debut in Stuttgart

A huge symphony projected onto a massive display, and a large number of dancers in white robes set the mood for the third-gen Porsche Cayenne to roll onto the stage for its first official outing at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart. When you think of a new-gen model making its debut, you expect to see something quite different, but with the Cayenne, it was more about honing perfection instead of trying to reinvent the model. And, while some may have their reservations about it (perhaps even me included,) beauty runs much deeper than the skin on this baby. First off, the body is now all aluminum from front to rear (minus a few pieces of plastic cladding, of course) which contributed to a weight loss of around 65 kilo or 143.3 pounds. That’s the weight of a small human, and when you add in the fact that it gets more power, there’s no doubt about it, the new Cayenne has all that sports car DNA Porsche was aiming for.
How did it make this possible? Well, I’m glad you asked.

For starters, a new rear axle steering system is standard equipment for better maneuverability while a three-chamber suspension system keeps the ride on point. What’s more important, however, is the power upgrades that contribute to better performance. The base model gets a 3.0-liter that’s good for 340 horsepower, a 40-pony improvement, and 331 pound-feet of torque. The Cayenne S, which gets the 2.9-liter V-6, will deliver a tasty 440 horsepower (20 extra ponies) and 405 pound-feet of twist. They can hit 62 mph in 6.2 and 5.2 seconds, respectively. If you opt for the Sport Chrono package, those figures drop to 5.9 and 4.9 seconds. Maximum speed for both models is pegged at 164 mph. As for the interior, there are some nice changes in play as well, including better digitization of the instrument cluster (all but the central analog gauge) and a large, 12.3-inch touchscreen display in the center stack. New HVAC vents help to provide a fresh look while the typical support handles on the doors and console have been moved forward a bit. Cargo capacity has increased to 27.19 cubic-feet, an improvement of 3.53 cubic-feet over the outgoing model. This can be attributed to its slightly longer stance, which was increased by nearly 2.5 inches. Finally, and arguably most important for the interior, is the new button panel on the center console. Where there were once analog buttons clustered together now sits a glass touch screen with lots of digital buttons. It’s a nice touch, to say the least.

And there you have it. There are of course other little details to talk about, but we’ll cover that in our full review, which will be updated in the next 24 hours. For now, you can rest your mind knowing that the third-gen Cayenne starts out in Germany from €74,828 while the Cayenne S goes for €91,964, both including VAT. Those figures convert to $85,590 and $110,106, respectively. The third-gen Cayenne isn’t available for the U.S. quite yet, but if you’re over there in Germany, you can stop by your local dealer and place your order now.

PostHeaderIcon Check it Out: The Third-Gen Porsche Cayenne Leaks Before its Official Debut!!!

Introduced to the U.S. for the 2003 model year, the Porsche Cayenne has been through two generations and is set to make another generational shift on August 29, but before that happens, someone – most likely Porsche trying to generate hype – has leaked a whole handful of images that show off the next-gen (if that’s what you would call it) SUV. It’s becoming pretty commonplace for luxury automakers to be quite lazy with visual changes when it comes to generational updates, and the Porsche Cayenne is no exception. In fact, to an untrained eye, I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that this was a 2017 Cayenne. Very few changes can be spotted, but include a slightly larger center grille with slightly larger corner air inlets. It does feature invisible mesh hidden behind three chrome plated louvers and the fog light area has also changed, to allow for rectangular units. The air dam is just a bit wider, and the hood gets a couple of extra body lines. The biggest change up front is limited to the new headlight units, that are now single light units. If you recall, the second-gen model had the same LED headlights but also featured a projector to the inside corner. That is no longer the case, and the main LEDs should provide variable brightness depending on whether you have your dims or brights engaged.

As for the rest of the outside, there isn’t much to write home about. The side profile is pretty much unchanged from the current model while the overhang on the rear hatch no gets longer wings on the sides. The taillights are now thinner units with a flat bottom, connected together by a reflector unit that traverses the width of the hatch. The rear fascia is less eventful but does feature a sharp body line running from left to right. Finally, the lower portion of the rear fascia gets larger cladding with rectangular exhaust outlets. It’s not bad, but this is worthier of being called a facelift than a generational shift. But, what about the interior? Keep reading to find out.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Porsche Cayenne Previews in Official Sketch

Next week Porsche will unveil a new version of its Cayenne SUV. Traditionally, this is not something we would get excited about. After all, the new model will at best be just a little bit less ugly than its predecessor. But we have to say this sketch of 2018 Porsche Cayenne they have just released looks pretty intriguing. 

The sketch shows us the silhouette of 2018 Porsche Cayenne. It reveals a muscular and athletic with curves in all the right places. If anything, the new Cayenne appears to be influenced by the design of its little brother the Macan. That means you can also expect a lower roof,slimmer lights and sportier bumpers and skirts. Put this lot together and the end result is bound to be good looking.

One thing you can be sure of about the 2018 Porsche Cayenne is that it will be technically brilliant. It will get more powerful, more efficient engines, including diesel and hybrid variant. It’ll also be pretty tough and long-lasting. Porsche has spent the past couple of years racking up thousands of miles with prototypes of this car in some of the world’s harshest places to ensure the new Cayenne is of top-notch quality and durability. And of course the Cayenne will be amazing to drive. It’s always offered the best handling you can expect from a tall and capable SUV.

Stay tuned for the official details and photos as we get closer to debut day on August 29.

PostHeaderIcon New Generation Porsche Cayenne Concludes Testing

Later this month the third generation Porsche Cayenne SUV will go official. The German automaker says the new model is a complete redevelopment, but if we know Porsche the looks are not going to be revolutionary. The 2018 Cayenne will in all likelihood be another classy, capable, lovable uggo. 

But that remains to be seen. Right now we want to talk to you about the obvious stuff. 2018 Porsche Cayenne is going to be as tough, as well-made, and as reliable as its predecessors. That is not just an educated guess based on past experiences, either. That is the result you get when you put the prototype of a car through difficult tests and it passes them all with flying color. In the case of the Cayenne the tests included 4.4 million kilometers in conditions ranging from minus 45 degrees to plus 50 degrees.

engineers and technicians measure in these unforgiving tests the tolerance of each individual part and the whole car as a unit. They also make sure all the mechanical and electrical parts work under extreme stress the like of which is extremely unlikely to occur in real life. So the new Cayenne may still not be a looker, but you can take solace in the fact it’s going to be in your service for a long, long time.

To simulate extreme stresses, the prototypes of the new Cayenne are being tested all around the world, including on race tracks traditionally used by Porsche to test all its models: In Germany, the Hockenheimring and the especially challenging Nürburgring-Nordschleife are used. In Italy, the test cars are put through their paces in continuous operation on the 12.6-km high-speed track at Nardò. The materials, sensors and electronics have to prove their quality and durability in different climate conditions – at up to plus 50 degrees Celsius in the sand dunes of Dubai (UAE) and on dusty slopes in Death Valley (USA) as well as at up to minus 45 degrees Celsius on ice and snow in Alaska (USA). The third generation of the Cayenne also had to endure the stop-start traffic in the hot and humid conditions of Chinese cities, master test tracks in Sweden, Finland and Spain, and was transported to South Africa, Japan and New Zealand to complete extensive on and offroad testing.

PostHeaderIcon Nearly 22K Porsche Cayenne Diesel Recalled

Porsche Cayenne Diesel-1

That’s right, even top-shelf automakers such as Porsche whose name is a byword for quality and craftsmanship sometimes gets hit by an unfortunate error or mistake that results in a huge and hugely embarrassing recall. This time it’s the Porsche Cayenne Diesel getting called back to the factory to have a software glitch fixed with an update. 

The number of Porsche Cayenne Diesel models affected with the software issue is more than 21,500 vehicles in Europe from model years 2014 to 2017, including 6,000 in Germany, all powered by the 3.0-litre V6 Diesel. The issue is with irregularities in the engine control software which is easily fixed with an update – a patch, if you will.

Porsche Cayenne Diesel-2

To be honest the recall of Porsche Cayenne Diesel, despite its fairly large scale, does not damage Porsche’s reputation for a number of reasons. First of all, they discovered the issue in internal investigations and even though they probably could cover it up they decided to notify the authorities and issue a recall. Then there is the fact that Porsche doesn’t even build these engines but get them from a third-party maker. Nevertheless, they are taking full responsibility here and paying for the repair.  The recall is expected to begin in autumn 2017, it will take about an hour to complete and it will be free of charge.

Porsche has ushered in a third generation of the Porsche Cayenne, but before you get too excited, you should be aware of the fact that it looks quite a bit lot its predecessor. Now, this isn’t because Porsche was lazy. No. This is because the Cayenne went through an extensive update just back in 2015, so after three years it was time to make some changes while leaving the relatively fresh body intact with just little extras here and there. As such Porsche focused its energy on what happens beneath the skin bringing updated or new technology that includes rear axle steering as standard equipment, a three-chamber suspension, 48-volt electronic roll stabilization, and two new engines that offer up more power and better economy. At the skin level, we see a revised interior and exterior that is really more of a honing to the previous layout than an update, but it’s exactly what the Cayenne needed to take its respective segment by storm in 2018.

For now, there are only two trim levels available – the base level Cayenne and the Cayenne S. Like the second-gen model, it will likely take a couple of years, but Porsche should fill the lineup with a diesel and a plug-in hybrid variant at some point. There’s also the potential for an all-electric model at some point in this generation if Porsche really gets froggy, but we’ll leave that speculation for another time. For now, let’s take a good look and the new Cayenne and talk about all of the exciting changes that will carry it into the next decade.

Update 8/29/2017: The third-gen Porsche Cayenne has made its official debut in Stuttgart, Germany after a glorious display put on by dancers and a huge symphony. We’re in the process of updating this review now, but until then, scroll down to see the new images, and to find a link to our coverage of the new Cayenne.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Cayenne Tows Airbus A380 for Guinness Record

cayenne-a380-tow-0

Porsche is not usually one for such stunts, but when it was proposed to them they should pit a Porsche Cayenne against a 285-tonne Air France Airbus A380, they could not refuse. Turns out they were right to be accept the challenge, as the standard Cayenne towed the giant plane a full 42 meters, securing itself a Guinness World Record.

The title this Porsche Cayenne, which was driven to the airport in France all the way from England and was also driven back after the stunt, has earned is for the ‘Heaviest aircraft pulled by a production car’ which is as impressive a feat as it sounds.

Richard Payne, a technician at Porsche Cars Great Britain who drove the Cayenne, was delighted with the achievement. “We don’t usually go this far to test the limits of our cars but I think today we got pretty close. Our cars can go a bit beyond what our customers might expect – they’re designed to be tough.” As well as setting the new record, the car was driven from London and Richard planned on driving it back again. “Credit should go to the team in Stuttgart who developed the car – they did a thorough job. I’m also very grateful to Air France and its engineers for their generosity in allowing me to tow their beautiful aircraft”.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Cayenne S Platinum Edition

Porsche first released its Cayenne mid-size luxury performance SUV in 2002, and although plenty of naysayers derided the Stuttgart-based brand for this seemingly sacrilegious break from tradition, the model continues to do well 15 years later. Now, with the third-generation Cayenne expected to appear in just a few short months at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, Porsche is sprucing up the outgoing model with a new special edition model called the Platinum Edition. Upgrades include a few bits and pieces for the interior, as well as understated exterior styling modifications, while the rest of the Cayenne spec and equipment is left as is.

Outside, you’ll find new, large-diameter wheels, plus revamped glossy black trim. Inside is leather and Alcantara upholstery, top-end infotainment gear, and unique badging.

Porsche is offering its Platinum Edition treatment for the Cayenne S gas-powered model, as well as the Cayenne S Diesel. Under the skin, the mechanical bits are unaltered, which means you still get 420 horsepower from the twin-turbo 3.6-liter six-cylinder in the Cayenne S, and 385 horsepower from the twin-turbo V-8 in the Cayenne S Diesel.

Pricing starts at 87,442 euros (or $94,311 at current exchange rates) for the Cayenne S Platinum Edition, and 90,417 euros (or $97,519 at current exchange rates) for the Cayenne S Diesel Platinum Edition.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Cayenne Coupe

The second-generation Porsche Cayenne crossed the Pond to the U.S. for the 2011 model year, being offered here in many forms, including the GTS, Turbo S, and even a hybrid model. In 2015, Porsche launched an updated second-generation model with significant exterior modifications, more powerful engines, and new technology. The facelift is supposed to keep the SUV fresh until a brand-new model arrives sometime in 2018.

Along with the 2015 update, rumors of a sleeker, coupe-like version of the Cayenne also surfaced the Interwebz. Although original reports claimed a 2015 launch, Porsche’s competitor for the BMW X6 failed to show up. In the meantime, Mercedes-Benz came up with its very own proposition, the GLE Coupe. Hopes of seeing a Cayenne coupe based on the second-generation model were almost lost after that, but 2016 brought us the first prototype of Porsche’s X6 fighter.

However, instead of a redesigned Cayenne body with a sleeker roofline, our paparazzi spotted an awkward test mule that looks like a Panamera on stilts. But, while this isn’t 100-percent solid proof that Porsche is testing the Cayenne Coupe, we’re definitely looking at an SUV prototype. Since there aren’t any known plans for a new crossover, this mule can only be an early version of the Cayenne Coupe.

Not much is known about it at this point, but it’s expected to use the same underpinnings as the standard Cayenne, as well as the same drivetrains. The name is not yet official so you should take the “Cayenne Coupe” with a grain of salt, but this badge is very likely given that the sleek crossover will be part of the same family. We’re still waiting for Porsche to confirm the new crossover, but until that happens, we’ve created a rendering of the upcoming vehicle, as well as a speculative review about what it may bring to the table.
