Four decades ago, if you had some expendable income and wanted to show off, you bought a personal luxury coupe. That loaded Chevrolet Monte Carlo, Ford Thunderbird, or Chrysler Cordoba showed the world that you valued style over practicality, and you were monied enough to make such a decision. Times have changed, but the word to describe such a vehicle hasn’t. Enter the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe.
We could argue the semantics of calling any four-door offering – let alone a crossover – a coupe, but instead, let’s just evaluate the fastback Cayenne for what it is. To do that, Porsche offered us a stylishly appointed base model, which features a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 making 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet. With a starting price of $75,300, the Cayenne Coupe demands an additional $9,000 relative to the regular SUV, though it does include standard niceties like a panoramic glass roof, eight-way power sport seats, and the Sport Chrono Package.
