Scoop: Ugly Mule Proves Porsche Working On New Cayenne SUV Coupe

We got ourselves a batch of spy photos that are the first proof of Porsche working on a Coupe version of the next Cayenne.

Porsche is interested on expanding their crossover range, with the first model to come out of this strategy to be the Cayenne Coupe, a genuine rival for the likes of the BMW X6, the Mercedes GLE Coupe and the soon-to-be revealed Range Rover Sport Coupe.

Do not be afraid though as the car you see in these pictures is nothing more than a test mule wearing a modified Panamera body, with the final car’s design expected to be entirely different. And it better be so.

Engines and transmissions will off course be shared with the regular Porsche Cayenne that is still under development. The range will consist of the brand’s new V6 and V8 engines that debuted in the Panamera.

There is also an unconfirmed report running around the web, suggesting that the upcoming Cayenne Coupe will also come with a purely electric drivetrain, using the same tech with the also planned for production Audi Q6 E-tron, to rival the Tesla Model X.

The new Porsche Cayenne Coupe is expected to hit the market around one year after the regular Cayenne is launched.

  • Mafio

    And SUV COUPE?!? Ok this coupe nonsense is getting out of control. Whats next? A minivan coupe?

    • SgtBeavis

      I totally agree. A coupe ALWAYS has two doors. This is what happens when marketing gets their way.

      That said, I don’t hate this. It actually looks kinda good.

    • Christian

      Its called an SAV not SUV…But at the end, same shit…

  • U8INIT

    SLAY….i swear I hate being poor… :/

  • I wouldn’t be surprised if this turns out to be the final design. 🙂

    • SgtBeavis

      Yea, that doesn’t look like crap.

  • Ugly might not be a word strong enough for this. Makes me sick. Like GLE coupé and both X6. No I forgot the first Gen Panamera. At least the ugly Gremplin had some charm.

    • SgtBeavis

      it’s a test mule using a Panamera body.

  • Gowtham Oleti

    I want to kill the BMW X6 designer who indroduced this segment.

      It was not BMW who did it first…It actually was Ssangyoung with the Actyon for Europe.

  • TheBelltower

    Oh no. Please no. Is Mercedes and BMW having any luck selling these turds? Why would Porsche want to do this?

  • Bo Hanan

    Those doors are too short. This looks like a coupe pretending to be a sedan.

  • Mike Gonzalez

    so the next Cayenne will be a Panamera SUV?!

  • Ermal Morina

    it looks so freaking ugly.If there was an ugly as fuck competition,this will be the champ

  • Tumbi Mtika

    I never thought you could take a shit on the Panamera’s design. But now the Panamera is beautiful, so it’s possible, as shown by this mule and probably the eventual product.
