Two-Door Range Rover Coupe Prototype Spotted For The First Time

Those who thought that Land Rover could use more models with sloping rooflines are in luck, because a genuine Coupe version of the Range Rover seems to be in the works.

It was the automaker’s design boss Gerry McGovern that hinted at a two-door Range Rover last year in LA, and that’s when the possibility of an SVO-built Range Rover Coupe first dawned on us.

“There’s probably less market for a two-door [Evoque], and given that we have a cabriolet there’s no need,” said McGovern, before adding that “as we get bigger you can think about going two-door because it becomes more exclusive, which might give you a hint.”

Now, while this prototype appears to have four doors, a closer look at the camouflage indicates that those rear door handles might be fake, judging by the wacky rear door lines and the rear wheel arch. Basically, there seems to be very little room for a rear door.

Also interesting is that back in 1970 when the first-generation Range Rover first came out, it was a two-door – the four-door didn’t even exist until 1981. So not only would this all-new Range Rover Coupe be highly exclusive, but there’s also a precedent for it.

When viewed from the front, despite the camouflage, this looks like a regular Range Rover. The rear however is clearly more sporty thanks to the sloping roofline. There’s also no indication that the taillights are any different than on a regular 2018 Range Rover.

Since this is the first ever sighting of the car, don’t expect an unveiling any time soon, such as Geneva.

    It could be a two door or it could not. Only time will tell.

      Seems pretty clear to me it’s a two door…

        Yes and its overdue too.

    I hope it’s as successful as they think it will be. The Evoque two-door didn’t do well at all. At least in the States.

  • Nordschleife

    I always loved the Evoque 2-door. It was my dream ride for a minute. Shame it didn’t do better but it not surprising. I am glad Land Rover was smart enough to introduce a 4-door at the same time.

    I Land Rover would only get their quality/reliability right, they’d own the market considering they do extremely well now as is.

    Hopefully this will do better than the two door evoque with it’s more muscular shape and lines.

    10/10 would buy. I mean, lease. Then return it when it starts to fall apart at 40k miles/3 years. (:

    That person seems entirely too far forward to be a 2 dr. wondering if its just the next gen RR.

    2-door SUV’s almost never look proportional nor become very popular outside of a few exceptions (Wrangler is all that comes to mind). Can’t imagine this will be more popular than the 4-door (5-door?).

      If it’s going to be a limited SVO version, it makes *some* sense, and it might sell just for the wow/in your face factor.
      All other 2-door SUVs failed (unfortunately) because people buy SUVs for their practicality, a high performance version is the only scenario a 2-door SUV makes sense – as much as a high performance SUV makes sense 🙂
