Porsche is now officially jumping in on the coupe-like SUV bandwagon with the debut of the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe. Just like the other coupe-like SUVs, the Cayenne Coupe ditches versatility for a sleeker roof line.

The standard Cayenne Coupe is powered by a 3.0L turbocharged six-cylinder with 335 horsepower that’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Cayenne Turbo Coupe is powered by a 4.0L turbocharged V8 with 541 horsepower and 568 lb-ft. of torque that’s also mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
