Nothing like Cayenne to spice up Porsche’s coupe slate. As they say, of course. All kidding aside, here’s the 2020 Porsche Cayenne S Coupe, sliding into the middle of the coupe-inspired crossover’s current lineup.
The new trim comes with a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, topping up to 434 ponies and 405 pound-feet of torque. That’s an upgrade over the base model’s 335 horsepower. The ride comes with an eight-speed automatic gearbox that runs through an all-wheel-drive system. Per Porsche’s estimates, this thing can hit zero to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds. That’s cut to just 4.6 seconds if you get the Lightweight Sport Package. Both, however, offer the same top speed of 164 mph.
The Cayenne S Coupe is a little different from the base Cayenne S. For starters, it’s got Sport Chrono Package right out the gate. Add to that eight-way sport seats, a panoramic fixed glass roof, and 20-inch wheels. Customers can pick between a two-seat layout in the back or a bench seat that adds a third seat belt. Not much going for this ride in terms of customizations, suffice it to say. But the default isn’t that bad all things considered.
The aforementioned Lightweight Sport Package bundles Sport Design body kit into the mix, in addition to matte black air intakes and airblades. You’ll also find in this variant carbon fiber parts for the roof and rear diffuser. In terms of interiors, you get an Alcantara-wrapped heated steering wheel. Plus houndstooth seat center sections, for good measure. Topping it all off is the carbon fiber cabin trim, and the Alcantara headliner. Coming this fall; prices start at $89,850.
