Porsche Centre Dubai and Northern Emirates welcomes the Cayenne Coupe
Dubai. Porsche has extended its Cayenne range with the addition of the Cayenne Coupe – a version that features an all-new body shape, two different roof concepts and impressive performance. Launched at a showcase event held by Porsche Centre Dubai, Al Nabooda Automobiles at its showroom, the model shares the same technical attributes as the successful third generation Cayenne, meanwhile its sharpened proportions and dramatically sloping roof line gives it a more athletic appearance. Three derivatives are now available for customers to order, this includes; the Cayenne Coupe, Cayenne S Coupe and Cayenne Turbo Coupe.
Speaking during the launch event, K. Rajaram, CEO of Al Nabooda Automobiles, said: “We are delighted to unveil the Cayenne Coupe for the first time here in Dubai. A truly worthy addition, this model offers the option of an extra sporty variant within our SUV range. The Cayenne Coupe 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 Coupe 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 – Cayenne Coupe
With the exception of the front end, all other body parts of the latest model have been completely redesigned and redeveloped. The significantly steeper roof line makes it more dynamic and positions it as the sportiest-looking model in the segment. Reformed rear doors and wings broaden the shoulders of the Coupé by 18 millimetres, contributing to an overall muscular impression. The rear number plate is integrated into the bumper, making the vehicle appear closer to the ground.
The new Cayenne Coupe comes with a 2.16 m2 panoramic fixed glass roof as standard. The 0.92 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 Coupe. 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 22-inch GT Design wheels, seat centres in classic checked fabric, as well as carbon and Alcantara accents in the interior. For the Cayenne Turbo Coupe, 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
Benefiting from a generation of powerful and efficient engines initially implemented in third generation Cayenne models, the Coupe versions arrive with increased power through the addition of a Sport Chrono Package fitted as standard.
Achieving a top speed of 243 km/h, the Cayenne S Coupe 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 thanks to the optional lightweight sports packages.
Meanwhile the 2.9-litre twin-turbo engine of the Cayenne S Coupe delivers its maximum torque of 550 Nm across a wide engine speed range between 1,800 and 5,500 rpm. With an output of 440 hp and a top speed of 263 km/h, the model achieves a time of 5.0 seconds from standing start to 100 km/h. This is also further reduced to 4.9 seconds with the addition of three optional lightweight sports packages.
The top-of-the-range Cayenne Turbo Coupe 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 Coupe 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.
Sporty interior with intuitive controls
At the front, the Cayenne Coupe includes new eightway electrically adjustable sport seats with integrated headrests to offer exceptional comfort and support. Rear seats come fitted as standard with a 2+2 seating configuration and a centre storage compartment. Rear passengers sit 1.18 inches lower than in the Cayenne to offset the effects of the lower roofline. Like the third-generation model, the Cayenne Coupe features the Porsche Advanced Cockpit, an instrument cluster with two seven-inch full-HD displays designed to show a wide range of information, manageable via the multifunction steering wheel. Featured prominently in the center stack, a 12.3-inch full-HD touchscreen offers access to operate a range of settings and functions in the vehicle.
Improved driving dynamics
Designed to advance driving dynamics, all Coupe models include 20-inch wheels, Power Steering Plus and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) as standard. Power Steering Plus is firm at high speed
s, while at low speeds the steering force is assisted to help with parking and maneuvering. The PASM has been developed to continuously regulate the damping force for each wheel individually. Wheels start at 20 inches and include more designs than the third generation Cayenne, such as the 22-inch GT Design wheel, available in combination with the lightweight sports packages.
The new Cayenne Coupe models are now available at Porsche Centre Dubai and Northern Emirates. Basic retail prices are as follows:
