The Cayenne Coupe range consists of the Coupe, Coupe Platinum Edition, E-Hybrid Coupe, E-Hybrid Coupe Platinum Edition, S Coupe, S Coupe Platinum Edition, and GTS. All come standard with the Sport Chrono Package, an eight-speed automatic transmission, and intelligent AWD. The base Coupe is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 producing 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. The S uses a newer 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6, also used in various Audi RS models. It's a more vocal and involving powertrain than the 3.0-liter and is good for 434 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. The GTS gets a 4.0-liter V8 producing 453 hp and 457 lb-ft. E-Hybrids feature an electric motor additionally for a total system output of 455 hp.
Standard features include power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone climate control, a panoramic glass roof, and an active spoiler. The 12.3-inch infotainment system was carried over from last year, but it's now Android Auto compatible. All models also get a 10-speaker sound system. Standard safety items forward collision warning with autonomous braking, ten airbags, ABS, traction and stability control, a rearview camera, and parking sensors front and rear.
Platinum Edition models get bespoke styling with Satin Platinum finish, 21-inch wheels, and a limited color scheme. Specification upgrades are also available, including heated front seats, a 14-speaker Bose sound system, and ambient lighting.
The price of the Porsche Cayenne Coupe begins at $80,700 MSRP for the entry-level model. The Cayenne Coupe Platinum Edition is priced at $84,800. This is followed by the E-Hybrid Coupe at $91,800 with $95,500 needed for the E-Hybrid Coupe Platinum Edition. The Cayenne S Coupe costs $95,200 and the Platinum Edition version at $97,300. The GTS tops the range at $115,800. These prices exclude the $1,450 destination charge in the US.
We turned to the configurator to see how much a GTS would cost if you added some niceties. We went for a Carmine Red exterior, 22-inch Sport Black Classic wheels, the Black/Carmine Red GTS interior, the 18-way power-adjustable adaptive sport seats with memory, the Assistance Package, the Premium Package Plus, and rear-axle steering. Including destination, the total came to over $138,460, all-in. There's no shortage of amazing go-faster SUVs at that price.
There are loads of standalone options available, but Porsche also does packages. The prices reflected below are for the base Cayenne Coupe, with some differences in the cost on upper trims. The Premium Package ($4,980) includes 14-way power-adjustable seats, dynamic front lights, a Bose surround sound system, comfort access, heated front seats, and ambient lighting.
The Premium Package Plus ($7,460) ramps the luxury up even further. It includes everything from the standard Premium Package plus four-zone climate control, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and LED-Matrix design headlights.
The $4,900 Performance Package adds rear-axle steering, an adaptive air suspension, and a sport exhaust system with your choice of silver or black tailpipes.
Porsche also combines its luxury and styling packages. The Premium Package Plus and Lightweight Sport Package in Carbon Fiber includes all of the goodies in the Premium Plus package, plus a sportier design package, a carbon fiber roof, 22-inch GT Design wheels, and a roof lining in Race-Tex. It costs $24,620. That's a bit steep, but it may be worth investigating whether it would be cheaper going for this all-inclusive package rather than picking a bunch of standalone options.
If you prefer to pick your options individually, a few of the many examples are a surround-view camera system ($1,200), adaptive cruise control ($2,000), and the high-end Burmester sound system ($7,000).
As much as we love the GTS trim with its lowered stance and center-exit exhaust, the cheaper E-Hybrid deserves a hard look. It makes 455 hp and 516 lb-ft between its turbocharged V6 and electric motor. Porsche's hybrid systems are also some of the best. If you have it in Eco mode it'll sail on the expressway with the engine off at 80 mph, just to gently kick back on when you need it. That one starts at a base price of $88,600 in the USA and it would be our choice of Cayenne Coupe.
