Slightly sleeker version of Porsche's SUV will get a retractable spoiler to go with its new tailgate
If you've ever looked at a Porsche Cayenne and thought, 'well, yes, fine - but I'd like it more with a retractable spoiler', then your luck is in. Because as the latest spy pics show, that's exactly what's coming aboard the new 'coupe' version of the brand's big-selling SUV.
Of course when Porsche says 'coupe' it means a five-door model with a tapered (and slightly less practical) rear end. It is the faster rake and restyled tailgate that make room for a peek-a-boo wing, which was recently displayed in all its dubious glory while testing at you know where.
Unlike the Panamera's much cooler two-piece affair, the Cayenne's spoiler looks to pop-up in the conventional way, and apparently shares its air-fettling duties with the slightly smaller roof spoiler above. If you're thinking that's a lot of spoiler for one SUV, then yes, it is - but Porsche will likely be reminding us next year that this is very much a performance variant of an already massively quick car, intended to do battle with the equivalent BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe.
As such, it's almost certain to get the heftier 440hp and 550hp variants of its maker's 2.9-litre V6 and 4.0-litre V8, but not the (forthcoming) diesel lump. Aside from the slightly more 'sporting' profile, you can expect the rest of the model to resemble the conventional Cayenne - saving the price tag, which will doubtless feature a hefty premium.
