German manufacturer Porsche has been in India for quite a few years already and has been doing exceedingly well in the country. Porsche is a brand known for its high-end sports cars, sedans, and SUVs. The company sells cars that are stylish, performance-based, and extremely luxurious and are often considered as one of the most recognizable car manufacturers out there. With a couple of new names to add to their already impressive lineup, here is what Porsche has to offer the Indian market in the coming months.
|Porsche Cayenne Coupe||2.0 Crore|
|Porsche Taycan||1.08 Crore|
|Expected Launch||December 15, 2019|
|Engine||3.0L V6 Petrol, 3.0L Twin-Turbo V8 Petrol|
Seeing that the Cayenne SUV was gaining a lot of success over its release, Porsche has officially announced the arrival of its coupe version called – you guessed it, Cayenne Coupe. The biggest and most obvious change you get to see is the sloping roofline that reduces headspace in the rear by about 20mm but gives the car a more subtle change as compared to the BMW X6 – its closest competition. There are also options for different roofs including a lightweight carbon fiber panel and a panoramic glass one. Apart from that, the Cayenne Coupe houses a large grille on the front with dual air dams on either side of it. Below the air dams sit bright fog lights while there are LED headlamps sitting above them. On the rear, there is a familiar taillight set up with a new bumper that houses 4 exhaust caps for a sportier look. There are two spoilers on the back as well – a fixed one that sits at the above the windscreen and an extendable one that sits at the bottom of it which can extend to 135mm when the car reaches over 90 kmph. The boot space is where the Cayenne Coupe loses out as it is reduced to 625 liters from 745 which is found on the regular Cayenne SUV. Even after folding down the rear seats, the car sports 1540 liters of space which is 138 liters lower than its standard variant.
As usual, Porsche has included the finest and most premium quality interiors into the Cayenne Coupe with leather inserts for the seats, dashboard, and steering wheel. There are TFT displays to help control the car and adjust the settings while a touchscreen infotainment system helps you enjoy your favourite content while driving. Now, when it comes to power, the Cayenne Coupe will get the same setup as the SUV including its 3.0L V6 petrol engine that is mated to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. There is also a 3.0L Twin-Turbo V8 petrol engine available for the Cayenne Coupe Turbo edition which houses the same transmission as the regular models. With a price tag of about 2.0 Crore, a used car evaluation tool might come in handy if you decide that you want to own the model in India.
|Expected Launch||March 15, 2020|
|Engine||Dual Electric Motors|
|Battery||93.4kWh Lithium-Ion Battery|
As the world slowly, but surely, moves towards implementing electric vehicles into their lives on a daily basis, Porsche has finally decided to enter the discussion with their own take on the matter – the Porsche Taycan. The first EV from the German manufacturer and it is a beauty, not to mention, quite the performer as well. The car will be available in 2 options; the Turbo and the Turbo S. Both cars will house a large 93.4 kWh Lithium-Ion battery that will provide power to the dual electric motors attached on the front and rear axles. While the Turbo will produce 670 horsepower, the Turbo S is set to produce an impressive 750 horsepower. The Taycan will also be the first EV to feature a 2-speed transmission which will make getting to faster speeds easier and a lot more fun. The more powerful Turbo S is capable of reaching 0-100kmph in under 3 seconds and has a top speed of 250kmph. Both the variants offer a range of about 480km which is more than just impressive – it is definitely one of the best EV available right now and could have a lot of people preparing their RC transfer papers soon.
In terms of looks, the Taycan has a sleek and sturdy design that screams ‘sporty’ in every possible way. The front of the car looks resoundingly familiar as it has a mix of the iconic 911 and 718 features combined perfectly. The car does get newly shaped LED headlamps along with a new bumper and larger air dams while the rear features new, larger taillights and a sportier bumper as well. The inside of the car is, as expected fitted with luxurious leather seats, a leather steering wheel, a digital dashboard, a touchscreen infotainment system, TFT control panels, and heightened safety features that include airbags for the front and rear seats.
As described above, Porsche is set to make a statement with the introduction of these 2 cars in the country and could soon become two of the most pre-owned cars from their lineup in the Indian market.
