The new SUV Cayenne Coupe’ celebrates its exhibition premiere this Tuesday at “Auto Shanghai”, one of Asia’s most important motor shows. The new Porsche will be on view there until April 25, and will play a major role in the further growth of the sports car manufacturer in China.
Porsche delivered more than 31,000 units of the Cayenne in China in 2018, representing an increase of 19 percent compared with the previous year. The sports car manufacturer wants to continue to grow in the SUV segment with the Coupé variant. It includes all the technical highlights of the third Cayenne generation, but is more progressive, more athletic and more emotional thanks to its custom design elements and new technical details. The roof line falls away more steeply to the rear, positioning the Coupé as the sportiest-looking model in the segment. The front windscreen and A-pillar are shallower than in the Cayenne due to the fact that the roof edge has been lowered by 20 millimetres. The newly designed doors and wings broaden the shoulders of the vehicle by 18 millimetres. The fixed roof edge spoiler is combined with an adaptive rear spoiler, which extends by 135 millimetres from a speed of 90 km/h, increasing downforce on the rear axle. This has benefits for driving stability.
