Porsche Cayenne Coupe Hybrid Coming This Year

It should pack the same hybrid engine as the standard Cayenne E-Hybrid.

The Porsche Cayenne Coupe comes in three flavors. The base, V6-powered model produces 335 horsepower (249 kilowatts) and 332 pound-feet (450 Newton-meters) of torque. The mid-range S model pumps out 434 hp (324 kW) and 405 lb-ft (549 Nm). And at the top of the range, the Turbo model, with its powerful V8, produces 541 hp (403 kW) and 567 lb-ft (768 Nm). But more variants are on the way.

At a media event in Austria, a Porsche exec confirmed the arrival of a hybrid model this year. "We will extend the engine lineup step by step," the executive noted to the group of journalists in attendance. "This year, you can expect a hybrid engine version."

Assuming the same powertrain from the base Cayenne E-Hybrid carries over, the Coupe would pack 455 hp (339 kW) and 516 lb-ft (699 Nm) of torque. But we could, theoretically, see two hybrid versions of the Cayenne Coupe in the near future. At its debut in Shanghai, Porsche hinted at a Turbo S E-Hybrid model for both the standard Cayenne and Cayenne Coupe. The two could use the electrified V8 borrowed from the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, and potentially produce upwards 680 hp (507 kW) and 626 lb-ft (850 Nm).

But wait, there's more. Since the Porsche Cayenne Coupe shares its platform, and many of its components, with the high-powered Lamborghini Urus, a rumor suggests a Cayenne Coupe with Lamborghini power. The same twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 from the Urus could carry over, producing 641 hp (477 kW). That would position the so-called "Cayenne Coupe GT5" between the Turbo model and the Turbo S E-Hybrid.

All things considered, it looks like Porsche has big plans for its Cayenne Coupe. The crossover could come in up to six different trims, based on what we know – but outside of the base Cayenne Coupe, S model, and Turbo trim, there's no hint at pricing for these new trims. The base Cayenne Coupe starts at $75,300, and a fully loaded Turbo model could set you back nearly $200,000.
