Porsche Cayenne Coupé

We've trawled the internet for the latest motoring news so that you don't need to. Enjoy!

Snippets:

  • BMW teases the 2 Series Grand Coupe. But sorry, it will be FWD.
  • VW Golf R reloaded, now with 228kW at R676,000.
  • Audi has built a 450kW two-litre turbocharged engine. So that's nice.

Porsche Cayenne Coupé


The original sports car on stilts just got a lot sportier – with a coupe like profile that makes a lot more sense here than it does on the BMW X6 and Mercedes GL Coupe. We’re sorry. It just does. Michael Mauer, Porsche VP had this to add, "the significantly steeper roof line that falls away to the rear makes the Cayenne Coupé appear even more dynamic and positions it as the sportiest-looking model in the segment."

Although, we’re most excited about the performance flagship Turbo model that will crush the zero to hundred sprint in 3.9 seconds in all sorts of comfort.

SA Pricing:

Cayenne Coupe V6R1,303,000.00
Cayenne Coupe TurboR2,277,000.00

From out of nowhere Ferrari P80-C


We are officially ready to forgive the Maranello brand for making the lack lustre F8.

Meet the really rare P80-C, a complex and ambitious creation of Flavio Manzoni of the Ferrari Styling Centre – the brand’s new flagship hero car. It is conceived on a 488 GT3 chassis, is drop dead gorgeous in its signature red skin and lord help us, we need this on our bedroom wall or driveways like, yesterday (Editors note: Ford GT anyone, anyone?).

2020 Range Rover Evoque in the metal


And with absolutely no Beckham in site. The new car has had its styling brought in line with the rest of the Range Rover range, so couldn’t look more familiar if it tried. This will find many, many new homes.

Behold the Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato (rendering)


Yes, it may just be a rendering but it still has us salivating.

It has been created in celebration of the brand’s centenary and is based upon the DBS Superleggera. Design highlights include the double-bubble roofline and a completely wraparound windscreen. Like, all the way to its bum.

Thursday Roundup #35 - News Wrap Up
A bunch of fresh new metal has debuted recently and we’ve got the lowdown. Whilst most like the Vauxhall GT X Experimental Concept and Mercedes-Benz Vision EQ Silver Arrow Concept as their names suggest are concept vehicles unlikely to see the light of production day, the Ford GT Heritage Edition and McLaren 720S GT3 surely will.
