Porsche just unveiled a Cayenne S Coupe, using the same 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 in the standard Cayenne S. Power figures make the jump almost unchanged to the rakish sibling, being 434 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque - one fewer pound-foot than in the Cayenne S.

Sitting between the base Cayenne Coupe and the range-topping Turbo, the S is powered by a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 making 550Nm of torque between 1800 and 5500rpm, and 324kW of power. Other standard equipment includes speed-sensitive power steering, 20-inch alloy wheels (Coupe/SUV mashups tend to prioritize aesthetics), Porsche's adaptive suspension system, and Park Assist at the front and rear.

Performance falls right in the middle as well, with a 0-60 miles per hour sprint of 4.7 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package, which comes standard, or 4.6 seconds with any of three optional Lightweight Sport Packages, according to Porsche. Top speed is 164 miles per hour.

In the United States, the Cayenne S Coupe features 20-inch wheels and a panoramic glass roof. Adding one of the three optional Lightweight Sport packages lowers the zero-to-60-mph time every so slightly to 4.6 seconds. Those Lightweight options add cosmetic upgrades in various materials and colors outside and in, a carbon fiber roof, and 22-inch forged aluminum GT Design wheels.

The S model will slot between the base Cayenne Coupe and the Cayenne Coupe Turbo.

Porsche says headroom is identical compared to the Cayenne "wagon" with its taller roof in the Coupe, by the way, claiming the rear seats have been dropped by 30mm to compensate for the slicker roofline. Starting MSRP for the Porsche Cayenne S Coupe will start at $88,600 excluding $1,250 for delivery, processing and handling.
