The GT5 nameplate is booked and now all eyes are pointed to
Porsche. What will be their next move and which model is
getting the GT treatment? Well, experts didn’t take too long
before they realized the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe GT5 is the
perfect addition for the upcoming season. Loaded with the
650-hp rated engine also available for Lamborghini Urus, this
SUV is going to be one of the most attractive options in the
exotic SUV market.
The GT5 badge will push the current level of performance by
more than 100 hp. Currently, the Cayenne Coupe is
ready to crunch 541 hp. The upcoming 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe
GT5 will borrow the engine from Urus. Well, Lambo is using
Porsche’s drivetrain for its only SUV. Although the most
important, the upcoming vehicle is not all about power
upgrades. The German carmaker will add more options for the
interior and exterior. However, the GT5 will be based on the
Cayenne Coupe concept.
Huge Load of Power
The trademark claim of the GT5 badge makes all fans wondering
what is Porsche up to. Definitely, a kind of beast is on the
way. All stakes are on the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe GT5. The
new SUV is going to use the same 4.0-liter V8 engine the
standard model is using. However, the boost is expected, and it
will bring over 100 horsepower to the GT5 edition. Currently,
the most powerful Cayenne is capable to produce 541 horsepower.
The new system will push outputs to 650 hp. That means the
Porsche is taking the engine from the Lamborghini Urus, the one
that they developed and produced. Now, it is time to use it for
their own vehicle.
It is not going to be the most powerful drivetrain in the SUV
category, with Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk edition delivering
707 hp. Also, the new Mercedes Benz GLS AMG 63 will top these
numbers. What’s more, the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe GT5 is not
at the peak within the family. The E-Hybrid version of the SUV
bursts 680 horsepower.
Porsche Claimed “GT5” Badge
It’s been a year since the German carmaker protected the GT5
trademark. The name is registered in the database of the US
PTO. That happened soon after the carmaker brought an all-new
Cayenne Coupe SUV. So, the relation between these two events
was established pretty quickly and fans are already making
predictions about the new vehicle. Well, the GT stands for the
high-output cars, that is for sure.
When you take that and already very powerful SUV, there is only
one way – borrowing the more powerful engine from Lambo Urus.
This is not going to be the first time the German carmaker is
doing so. But, this time, the thing is much bigger and you
can’t mess up with 650 horsepower. Further rumors are reporting
that the upcoming SUV will be track-oriented and no massive
production will be available for buyers.
2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe GT5 Design
We still don’t know what kind of upgrades the new 2020 Porsche
Cayenne Coupe GT5 is going to implement to the standard offer.
Of course, there will be unique upgrades. We can already place
our bets on wheels, spoilers, and special paintjobs. Still, the
shell is the same as for the normal Cayenne Coupe. The GT5
could use materials that will help improve its performances on
the track. Also, the race-oriented version is going to sit
lower than the standard Coupe (currently at 8.5 inches).
Interior is a total mystery. With the knowledge that 2020
Porsche Cayenne Coupe GT5 will be race-tuned SUV, we believe
some of the specialized companies is going to produce seats for
the upcoming model. Also, there will be a unique steering
wheel, gauges, and shift knobs. We still can’t imagine how it
will look like combined. But, be sure that GT5 model will be
packed with the state of art technology and the latest premium
2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe GT5 Release Date
The new 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe GT5 is yet to be confirmed.
Well, the badge is booked and it is just a matter of time when
this model is about to appear. Sources claiming it will be
attached to the Cayenne Coupe are trusted. So, we can also
believe that Lamborghini Urus will borrow the drivetrain. The
only thing they can’t predict is the price. Well, if Porsche is
about to upgrade the Urus, so the price is going to be higher.
Currently, Lamborghini is selling its most luxurious vehicle
When the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe GT5 steps into the market,
there won’t be too many competitors. One of them is Lambo Urus.
Other premium SUVs that could be considered as rivals are BMW
X6M and Mercedes GLE AMG 63. Whatsoever, these two are not so
expensive, with the prices around $110,000. Still, for a big
saving, you can get nearly the same offer.
