Porsche engineers have been seen testing a prototype for an updated version of the Cain Coupe.
The Cayenne Coupe, as the name implies, is a coupe-like version designed to deal with high-end versions such as the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, as well as the Lamborghini Urus, Aston Martin DBX. And the upcoming Ferrari Purosangue.
It first came to market in 2019 as the 2020 model and a hardcore Cayenne Turbo GT variant was added to the 2022 lineup.
This updated Cain Coupe should come in 2022 as the 2023 model. Its arrival coincides with the arrival of an updated version of the regular Cain, whose prototypes are also being tested.
The Cayenne Coupe prototype shows new faces that Porsche plans for the entire Cayenne range. The main change is the square design for the headlights. There is also a new front fascia with larger dining and a pair of horizontal elements for daytime running light.
According to our photographer, the dash was completely camouflaged, indicating changes for the interior. It is possible to add a digital instrument cluster like the Taycan electric sedan.

It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Usually the automaker dials horsepower in most grades with its update. The lineup currently starts with a 335-hp turbocharged V-6-powered base cane coupe and is topped with a Turbo SE-Hybrid that combines a twin-turbocharged V-8 with an electric motor for a combined 670 hp.
The new Turbo GT variant is packed with a twin-turbo V-8 that delivers 631 hp by itself.
Stay tuned for updates as development continues.
