Porsche launches Cayenne Coupe in India with initial price tag of Rs 1.31 crore

Porsche India on Friday finally launched the new Cayenne Coupe in the country with sharper and edgier looks and prices starting at Rs 1.31 crore for the V6 variant and Rs 1.97 crore for the top notch V8 variant (ex-showroom, India).

The new Porsche Cayenne Coupe stands out for the sharper sculpting at the rear, an adaptive rear spoiler, a rear bench with the characteristics of two individual seats and different roof concepts- a panoramic fixed glass roof which is standard an optional carbon fibre roof that comes along with the optional carbon fibre package.

What sets the new Cayenne apart from the standard one is the front windscreen and A-pillar that are slimmer as the roof edge that has been lowered by around 20 mm. The rear doors and fenders are redesigned and have broadened the shoulders of the coupe by 18 mm and that builds up on its overall muscular impression.

The rear number plate is integrated into the bumper and it gets adaptive roof spoiler. The current Cayenne Turbo was the first SUV to feature this type of active aerodynamics and the Coupe body design adds up to that novelty. On each Cayenne Coupé, a roof spoiler is combined with a new adaptive rear spoiler as part of Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA). The spoiler is integrated into its silhouette and extends by 135 mm at speeds of 90 kmph and up, increasing the contact pressure on the rear axle, while PAA simultaneously enhances efficiency.

As per Porsche, the centre seam gives the roof the characteristic look of a sports car, quite similar to the Porsche 911 GT3. The carbon roof is available in one of the three lightweight sports packages which also include the Sport Design features, weight-reduced 22-inch GT Design wheels, seat centres in classic checked fabric, as well as carbon and Alcantara accents in the interior. For this model particularly, the package also includes a sports exhaust system.

The cabin remains identical to the regular Cayenne except for the two individual seats at the rear and gives off the sporty look draped in all-back. The comfort rear seats – a familiar feature of the Cayenne – can be ordered at no additional cost. Rear passengers sit 30 mm lower than in the Cayenne to adjust the rear seat in a bid to get the desired silhouette. The boot capacity at 625 litres is ideal for everyday use – and rises to 1,540 litres when the rear seats are folded down. The regular Cayenne Coupe offers 600-litres to 1,510 litres.

The new Cayenne Coupe houses a two high-performance motors under its hood- a 3.0-litre V6 turbocharged engine tuned to deliver 335 bhp and maximum torque of 450 Nm, while the top-of-the-line Cayenne Turbo Coupe is powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine that churns out 542 bhp and a peak torque of 770 Nm as it completes a 0-100 kmph sprint in just 3.9 seconds, further clocking a top speed of 286 kmph. The Sport Chrono Package with the first configuration, which comes as a standard fitment aids in clocking triple digit speed in six seconds and the figure drops to 5.9 seconds with the optional lightweight sports packages, further taking a top speed is 243 kmph.

The Cayenne Coupe V6 will stand as a direct rival to the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, BMW X6 and the upcoming Audi Q8 while the top-ranging Cayenne Coupe V8 locks horns with the Lamborghini Urus.

Like all Porsches, the Cayenne Coupe will be sold as a completely built unit (CBU) in India and will be identical to the European model.
