The new Porsche Cayenne was revealed back in August, and the Turbo model celebrated its global premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show recently. Now, Autocar UK reports the German carmaker is considering a coupe-style version to rival the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe and BMW X6.

Speaking to the publication, company CEO Oliver Blume said, “we analyse different segments and this can be an option in the future. Today, no decision has been taken. We have to make a calculation and talk to our customers.”

Michael Mauer, chief designer at Porsche, revealed that such a model does exist as an internal design project. The latest Panamera is an example of a model with alternative bodystyles – the long-wheelbase Panamera Executive and shooting brake-esque Panamera Sport Turismo.

As a design department, we’re always asked to come up with proposals. This is the most attractive part of the job: when the brand asks me to provide design ideas to visualise the product portfolio with no limitations of budgets. For each and every model, we have a lot of ideas. But there has to be a business plan. Yes, we’ve developed a lot of ideas,” Mauer said.

For now, the company is focusing on developing the production version of its upcoming all-electric sports sedan, previewed by the Mission E concept. “We had Macan. Now we have a car in a new segment with a pure EV. That will be the next step for a new segment for Porsche,” noted Blume.
