    Porsche going after the X6 - Cayenne to get a 'coupe' variant with third generation model in 2018

    You can go ahead and blame the BMW X6 for this. Additionally, the upcoming Mercedes-Benz MLC-Class. BMW has the 'coupe' SUV segment to itself right now and Mercedes and Porsche both want in. Porsche says they would have already made this variant if their plant was not at capacity, "We have been considering launching a more sporting derivative of the Cayenne for some time now. The problem has been the production capacity at our Leipzig factory and the strong sales of the regular Cayenne."

    A sportier Cayenne does not sound bad. Do what BMW does and take the SUV platform you already have, change the styling a bit, and bam, new model variant to milk the platform with. Especially considering the Cayenne 'coupe' will have a premium price tag to go with the sportier looks. Same amount of money to produce, great profit margin. You can't blame them.

    Do it...makes more money, I'm all for it. Plus if it looks like that it will be pretty attractive too.
