    Rumorpile: Porsche Joins The Crossover Coupe Craze

      Porsche Possibly Joins The Crossover Coupe Mania!

    While many of us are still trying to figure out the point of the BMW X6, other competitors who are German see a possible market emerging. Mercedes-Benz is readying their competitor which is supposedly called the MLC and Audi is rumored to be working on one as well. Well another German automaker is possibly working on as well.

    Autoweek reports that Porsche is considering a coupe-like Cayenne model. The new model is expected to share many of the design cues of an upcoming refresh due for the Cayenne due in 2017, along with sleeker roofline and sloping rear end. The interior will be shared with the Cayenne.

    The coupe-like Cayenne will utilize the upcoming MLB platform which will debut in the next-generation Audi Q7 which is expected to debut sometime this or next year. Power will come from a range of gasoline, diesel, and plug-in hybrid powertrains.

    Now, the model is expected to arrive sometime in 2018.

    WOW, Talk about a waste of cargo space, rear head room and over all just an over priced, over rated 2 person auto! Guess the small man with a big ego will love it and buy it up as usual cause it has Porsche on the auto. :P

    Not my cup of tea either.

    They should make a rear engine SUV based off the 911.

    I think they would have to be stoned to do this. However, Germans gettingvstoned could explain quite a few BMW products.
