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 equipment.
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 for $200k.
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.
