Porsche has just unveiled the Cayenne Coupe, a version of the company's larger SUV with a "rakish" sloped roofline. The people on the Internet have made themselves unpopular, especially because they are two annoying trends in the automotive industry: Put everything on a sloping roofline and extend the definition of "coupe" beyond any meaning. Forums, however, should stow the pitchforks. The Cayenne coupe will undoubtedly be good.
When BMW gets "rakish" behind, he feels uncomfortable. Similarly, Mercedes coupe SUVs clumsily resemble the Volkswagen Beetle. The Cayenne coupe, on the other hand, is proportional if it is not aesthetically pleasing to an SUV. The roofline enhances the look of the Cayenne standard and helps distinguish it from Audi's larger SUVs. This is important because the cars have the same engine and platform.
The goal of Porsche for the third generation is to make the Cayenne 91
In the production of a Cayenne coupe no Porsche sacrilege was committed. It is a Porsche SUV. Porsche purists have not renounced water-cooled engines, much less on sports cars. Another nod to present the fashion with the sloping roofline makes no difference.
Most importantly, Porsche sells a ton of these Cayenne coupes, many at a steep premium – the turbo starts at $ 130,100. The money offsets R & D costs for less profitable vehicles. Cayennes pay for Taycans, special editions of the 911, and other cool Porsche stuff that would not pay for their own freight. Do not hate this Porsche, hate the market that demands it.
