The brand new 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe GTS SUV has been spotted, and it could possibly set a new record at the Nürburgring.
Breaking records at the Nürburgring might sound completely pointless, and for the most part, they are. But to potential investors and advertisers, these small record-breaking factors is music to their ears. SUV's aren't really known for being Nürburgring lap record-breakers for their division, as SUV's are mostly practical consumer cars, but that's not the case with Porsche and their mighty Cayenne Coupe. A brand new 2021 sportier and faster Porsche Cayenne Coupe SUV has been spotted testing at the Nürburgring, and this time is rumoured to inherit the mighty GTS badge as well.
Spy images of the newly spotted 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe GTS got released a few days back and, for the most part, it looks quite good. It shares a very similar look to the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe but the new spotted version has a very peculiar quad exhaust design that throws the elegant design off a bit, but that doesn't us worry too much, those two outer exhaust tips are the real ones, or the ones that actually function when the 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe GTS goes into production, the exhaust design will be joined into one to give a more finished look.
While we are still yet to see a Porsche SUV fitted with a roll-cage, the Porsche Cayenne Coupe GTS prototype had a roll-cage as a part of the initial concept, but the chances of it making it to the production model seem very unlikely. Not because it won't be cool or functional, it's simply because of the target market of Porsche Cayenne consumers are not really the roll-cage type, and if they are, then why not just get the Porsche 911-RS?
The power specifications of the new 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe are still unknown, and more information on this will help pin-point where this SUV will fit in the Cayenne lineup. There is a high chance of this new 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe will produce at least 600hp, and if that is the case, it will share the same engine as the Porsche Panamera GTS, which is a twin-turbo 4.0L V8. This will make the new 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe fit perfectly between the Porsche Cayenne S and the Cayenne Turbo, which means it will get the GTS badge.
There are reports making their rounds that Porsche want to attempt a new SUV track record time at the Nürburgring with the 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe GTS, which is currently held by Audi with their RS Q8. In order to beat the SUV Nürburgring record, they need to get a lap time of 7:42.2 or below. However, Porsche holds the fastest car record at the Nürburgring with a time of 5:19.54, which was set by the Porsche 919. Will the new 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe GTS break the fastest SUV time at the Nürburgring?
