The 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe remains unchanged from the 2020 model year. However, the prices have been bumped by around $1200, as the 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe comes at a starting price of $76,500 MSRP. This is excluding the $1350 destination fee which the Cayenne Coupe invites. For leasing, consider the 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe to cost you around $1819 per month, for 27 months, with a %10 amount due at signing. 

Speaking of the Porsche Cayenne Coupe's competitors, the foremost rival is the ride that started it all, the BMW X6. Following in closely is the fellow soul brother of the Porsche, Audi Q8 while the signature opulent ride Mercedes AMG GLE 53 Coupe is also joining the lineup.

"Sure, the Porsche coupe's roofline cuts back on the practical reason someone buys a crossover, but it does so in the name of trendiness, ahem, stylishness." - Car and Driver

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe returns with the right blend of performance and comfort at the price tag of $76,500. All primed to take on the new decade, it is powered by a 335 hp 3.0L turbocharged V6 engine mated to an 8-speed shiftable automatic transmission. The duo can help the Cayenne Coupe to go from 0-60 mph in a mere 5.7 seconds

The interiors of the 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe are a different league altogether with the entire estate covered in fine premium soft-touch leather upholstery, and offering all the essential convenience and tech features you'd expect to be in a Porsche. Meanwhile, on the outside, the Cayenne Coupe is an equally overwhelming treat for the eyes with a very macho stance and the suave look of its elder brother the Cayenne

Porsches are known to be highly personal and customizable vehicles and the Cayenne Coupe is no different. It offers immense customizability and allows you to build a Cayenne Coupe that is fit for the gods. However, the accessories can drive up the price fairly quickly, so keep an eye out for that bit.

2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Buying Advice

The Porsche Cayenne Coupe is a well-rounded vehicle, but despite that fact, it loses out on a lot of other offerings. So we would recommend that you pick up the following additional options during customizations:

  • Assistance Package
  • Premium Plus Package
  • Smartphone Compartment with Wireless Charging

All of these will cumulatively add $14,400 to the entire price but will make sure that your ride is safe, engrossing, and thrilling at the same time.

9.0/10

"In short, this feels just like a Cayenne always has, which is to say a freakishly deft car for its size and easily one of the most driver-appeasing SUVs on sale." - TopGear

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe retains the 3.0L turbocharged V6 unit from last year. This powerhouse is tamed by an 8-speed shiftable transmission that works in tandem with the AWD drivetrain to put 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque on all the wheels.

Like a quintessential Porsche, the driving dynamics of the Cayenne Coupe are simply to die for. The transmission shifts quickly and smoothly both on the way up and down. The handling is crisp and precise, meanwhile, the composed ride quality is the cherry on the cake.

In the competition, the all-new Mercedes AMG GLE 53 Coupe with its 3.0L inline-6 turbo engine is the one to beat as it offers more power and ample luxuries at exactly the same price as the Cayenne Coupe. All of the others have exactly the same power figures, however, the Audi Q8 is the torquiest offering among the three. 

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe goes from 0-60 mph in just 5.7 seconds, literally gliding through the air for its size. With the brand’s limited top speed of 150 mph, the quarter-mile comes up in 14.4 seconds.

The Cayenne Coupe comes with one of the largest performance brakes on a car at almost 14 inches in the front, allowing it to stop just as emphatically. These brakes allow the car to come to a stop very amicably without causing any nose dive or any discomfort either during normal days or in panic conditions.

When compared to the others, the current flag bearer is the BMW X6 with a 0-60 time of 5.2 seconds. The Audi Q8 is slower only by 0.1 seconds and is faster in the quarter-mile run. The Porsche seems to be the slowest starting off but picks up the pace as the revs climb in the quarter-mile.

2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Fuel Economy

7.0/10

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe returns 19 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. Sum that up, and the 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe is good for a combined 20 mpg, which is fairly decent considering its 335 hp 3.0L V6 engine and a 0-60 time of 5.7 seconds.

However, what's impressive is the 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe's fuel tank capacity of 23.7-gallons which is the most cavernous in the segment and lends the SUV an impressive range of 545 miles on the highway.

When comparing numbers, the BMW X6's fuel efficiency figures lead the charts. Thankfully, Porsche maintained a fighting edge with its numbers and took the second spot. Mercedes AMG with an 18 mpg in city comes in third. The Audi Q8 returns a combined 19 mpg and hence is the underdog on account of lesser numbers all across the board.

2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Interior

7.0/10

"Headroom and legroom are great all around, though you still have to duck under the roofline a bit when entering the back." - Edmunds

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe's interior is lined with premium soft-touch leather upholstery, right from the dashboard, to the steering wheel, seats, and even the headliner in some cases. The use of plastic is kept to a bare minimum and only metal, glass and leather adorn the entire interior.

The veneer is finished in shiny piano black and the same finish is also on the veneer inlays in the dashboard. The infotainment screen is provided at just the right spot which is neither high nor too low for controlling most of the in-vehicular functions. The center console houses the leather-wrapped shifter along with the haptic responsive controls for climate control and other convenience functions.

The seats in the front are comfortable, roomy, and can easily seat a tall guy like it does an average one. The rear cabin is roomy enough but the sloping coupe-like roofline finds the flaw here. It bites into the rear cabin headroom and hence the tall ones might find it a bit of a struggle in the back. That being said, the seats have been lowered so it might help to a fair bit of extent.

Speaking of practicality, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe offers a cargo capacity of 22 cubic feet. Which is sizably smaller as compared to the standard Cayenne SUV due to the sloping roofline. However, The seats in the rear are 40/20/40 foldable and can drop down to provide additional space to the cargo compartment. 

In order to keep you entertained, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe comes with a 12.4-inch infotainment touchscreen with all the latest gizmos and connectivity options to make sure your experience is thoroughly personalized.

For those who want to amp it up inside, you can pick up the Bose Surround Sound System or even the Burmester 3D High-End Surround Sound System. Furthermore, if you want to extend this party mix to the back, you can also pick up the Rear Seat Entertainment Connect or Connect Plus system.

Some of the notable interior and infotainment features of the 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe are:

  • Dual-zone climate control with separate settings for driver and front passenger
  • 8-way Power-adjustable and heated front seats
  • Power adjustable multifunction steering wheel with paddle shifters
  • Porsche Connect Services
  • LED ambient lighting
  • Panoramic Glass Roof
  • Courtesy lighting on mirror
  • Tinted thermally-insulated front windshield
  • Analog clock on the dashboard

9.0/10

"It’s contemporary and not stale, with a nose inspired by the 911 and full-width taillights that have not become a brand signature. It’s a lifestyle choice for those who enjoy the sportiness it implies." - TheCarConnection

Imagine a longer, sleeker, and streamlined Porsche Cayenne, and you have the Cayenne Coupe. The Cayenne Coupe comes with the pure aesthetics of being a Porsche and yet maintains its own SUV Flavour.

The front looks sporty yet subtle while the sloping roofline ends at the rear badging with the Porsche Logo embossed. The only thing that sticks out particularly is the opening for the front camera in the middle of the front grille.

As you move to the sides of the car, the silhouette that the Cayenne Coupe carves is a beautiful one. While many find it a hard pill to swallow that an SUV can look so good with a coupe roofline, we are absolute fans of it. All thanks to the geniuses working at Porsche AG in Stuttgart, Germany. 

The rear lamps are sleek and the car looks as beautiful and dominant from the back as it does from the front. The wheels are bigger than the standard cayenne and allow more of a sporty vibe to flow through. The door is also shaped differently to accommodate the bigger lines and the sloping roofline.

Some of the most notable exterior  features of the 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe are:

  • Panoramic Glass Roof as standard
  • Full LED Headlamps with Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus
  • Automatic headlight activation incl. "Welcome Home" lighting
  • Four-point LED daytime running lights in each headlight
  • Front corner lights with LED position light and direction indicator
  • Rain Sensing windshield wipers
  • Power-operated and heated side-view mirrors
  • Privacy glass for rear windows
  • “PORSCHE" logo and model designation on the rear hatch in High Gloss Silver
  • Twin single-tube tailpipes, outside left and right, in brushed stainless steel
  • Fixed panoramic roof
  • Adaptive rear spoiler in exterior color with lip in Black
  • Fixed upper wing
  • Three-dimensional LED taillights with integral 4-point brake lights and light strip

Though these are pretty well thought out and well equipped, you can oomph it out further with the customization options. As long as your imagination can soar, the design of the Porsche can actually sing.

2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Safety

8.0/10

The Cayenne Coupe has not been tested by the NHTSA or the IIHS and the odds of it happening in 2021 seem thin. However, when they do happen, the car is expected to perform quite well on account of the hybridized yet strong chassis that it uses. 

The German automotive giants have always been known for their expert craftsmanship and eye for luxury, and VW’s Porsche is no different. In recent years, they have also dove fairly intricately into making their vehicles safe. And how can the biggest German carmaker fall behind? Therefore, the Porsche Cayenne Coupe comes with a well-rounded safety suite that has the following features:

  • Anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution
  • Warn and Brake Assist System
  • Stability control
  • Dual Stage SRS airbags
  • Pretensioners
  • Integrated Porsche 4D-Chassis Control
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • Porsche Side Impact Protection System
  • Engine immobilizer with remote central locking
  • alarm system with radar-based interior surveillance
  • ParkAssist (front and rear) with reversing camera
  • Door sill guards in Brushed Aluminum

Furthermore, there are many packages and standalone options that can add extra layers of security to the overall build. From Lane Keep Assist to Night Vision Assist, there is a lot more that can be added.
