Shanghai. From 16 April to 25 April, Porsche is presenting its full model line-up at the 18th Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition, offering up a veritable sports car feast to Chinese customers. Following its worldwide debut in Stuttgart Germany late last month, the all-new Porsche Cayenne Coupé is making its Asian Premiere at Auto Shanghai 2019. Porsche is extending its large-size luxury sporty SUV range by adding the all-new Cayenne Coupé, now in its third generation. With many creative design details, the all-new Cayenne Coupé encompasses sportiness, daily practicality and style, bringing a new sports car lifestyle to SUV drivers.

Meanwhile, as a sports car icon for eight generations, the all-new 911 is making its China debut at Auto Shanghai. The all-new 911 Carrera S, all-new 911 Carrera 4S and all-new 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet are presented to Chinese customers for the first time. The new models will be officially delivered to the Chinese market in the latter half of this year.

“Since its launch in 2002, the Cayenne model has been incredibly successful in China as well as in other markets. This is the first time we are presenting the Cayenne in Coupé form, which marks the entry of this large-size luxury sporty SUV into a new market segment,”said Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG. “It’s a brand-new body variant added to the third generation of the Cayenne, including all the technical highlights of the current Cayenne, but with an even more dynamic design and new technical details that position it as more progressive, athletic, and emotional. We expect the all-new Cayenne Coupé to attract younger and more expressive consumers with vibrant personalities.”

The all-new Porsche Cayenne Coupé boasts an athletic appearance, shaped by performance

To meet the diverse needs of consumers, Porsche decided from the outset to develop the third generation of the Cayenne in two directions: the SUV and SUV Coupé. The all-new Cayenne Coupé comes with all the technical highlights of the new Cayenne generation, including the powertrain and chassis, as well as the assistance systems and full digital connectivity. However, the different design styles bring up the exclusive and distinctive features of the all-new Cayenne Coupé.

The all-new Cayenne Coupé is more stylish and athletic. It will appeal to both existing and new Porsche customers. They pursue the strong performance of sports car and premium quality of top-class vehicle, while at the same time they are in favour of the unique design of Coupé. The all-new Cayenne Coupé offers more standard configurations exclusively for the Chinese market, including ambient lighting, privacy glass, ionizer and side airbags at the rear seats. The new model is expected to be delivered to the market in the next half year.

The more dynamic proportions of the all-new Cayenne Coupé combine with sharper lines and custom design elements to lend the model an unrivalled elegance. A steeply sloping roof achieves the characteristic look of a sports car, similar to the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and comes in two different concepts – a panoramic fixed glass roof fitted as standard, and an optional carbon roof. The highlights of the new model also include a totally unique rear section, a roof spoiler that accentuates the distinctive Coupé silhouette, and an adaptive rear spoiler as standard. Meanwhile, redesigned rear doors and fenders impressively broaden the shoulders of this vehicle, contributing to its overall muscular impression. The Coupé comes fitted as standard with a rear bench that has the characteristics of two individual seats. Alternatively, the comfortable rear seats – a familiar feature of the Cayenne – can be ordered at no additional cost.

Two high-performance engines are available at market launch. The Cayenne Coupé with six-cylinder turbocharged engine and displacement of three litres delivers 250 kW (340 PS) and maximum torque of 450 Nm. The Sport Chrono Package fitted in series-production vehicles achieves a standard sprint from 0-100 km/h in 6.0 seconds, with this figure dropping to 5.9 seconds with the optional lightweight sports packages. The top-of-the-range Cayenne Turbo Coupé goes to the starting line with a four-litre V8 engine with twin-turbo charging, 404 kW (550 PS), and maximum torque of 770 Nm. The Cayenne Turbo Coupé accelerates from a standing start to 100 km/h in 3.9 second.

The all-new Porsche 911: more powerful, faster, digital

As the heart and soul of the Porsche brand, the 911 has become the global image of the dream sports car. Striking a perfect balance between sporty performance and everyday practicality, the iconic model enshrines Porsche's car-making principles. Now, the legendary model has entered its eighth generation and has had its first close encounter with Chinese consumers.

Committed to its exclusive sportiness and the unmistakable Porsche design DNA, the all-new 911 adopts a more muscular look while taking on cutting-edge technology such as a 10.9-inch touchscreen monitor, further satisfying the demands of the digital world. The eighth generation has consolidated its status as a sports car icon by combining timeless heritage and creative innovation. The turbocharged flat-six engine of the all-new 911 Carrera S and all-new 911 Carrera 4S now produces 331 kW, enabling this impressive machine to deliver more power than ever before. The maximum torque is 530 Nm. Together with a newly developed eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, the all-new 911 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds. When equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package, the all-new 911 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds. Intelligent control and chassis elements as well as innovative assistance systems combine the masterfully uncompromising dynamism that the classic rear-engine sports car is famed for. Additional highlights include new assistance systems, such as the world's first Wet mode – which makes driving on wet roads even safer – and Night Vision Assist with thermal imaging camera, as well as comprehensive connectivity, which now also uses swarm intelligence.

Since the second generation 911, the convertible model has become an indispensable member of the family. It is not only a symbol of sports and youth, but also a lifestyle of passion and romance. An eye-catching feature on the all-new 911 Carrera S Cabriolet and all-new 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet are the unique panel bow convertible top. The fully-automatic soft top has an integrated glass rear window, while the soft top structure contains magnesium surface elements known as bows. The innovative technology creates a coupé-like curved roof when the soft top is closed. The new roof also has advantages when it comes to aerodynamics. The soft top can be opened or closed in around 12 seconds at speeds up to 50 km/h. What’s more, an electrically extendable wind deflector ensures that necks are shielded from wind impact. Besides, the open 911 Carrera S has an automatic roll-over protection system. This essentially consists of a compact, self-supporting portal frame made of welded, high-strength extruded aluminium sections, helping to improve the Cabriolet’s torsional rigidity.

Digging deep into the Chinese market, cultivating sports car culture and offering fascinating digital experiences

In addition to constantly presenting the most advanced Porsche models to Chinese consumers, Porsche is also committed to spreading sports car culture in China. In April 2018, Asia’s first Porsche Experience Centre was opened in Shanghai, offering a purer and higher quality Porsche experience for Chinese consumers. In the past year, Shanghai Porsche Experience Centre has attracted more than 10,000 visitors. Both on and off the track, Porsche owners and fans can fully appreciate Porsche’s driving passion and brand connotation.

The Porsche Club China, founded in April 2017, has grown rapidly and has branches in Shanghai, Changzhou, Shenzhen and Beijing, attracting more than 6,500 members. To enable more Porsche owners and fans to experience the passion of the racetrack, Porsche Sports Cup China is scheduled to debut at the Shanghai International Circuit in October. From junior to professional racer, this will be a carnival for every Porsche enthusiast.

“Since entering the Chinese market in 2001, Porsche has laid an extraordinary foundation with our brand, products, dealer network and customer service, as well as corporate social responsibility. We are constantly cultivating sports car culture and grow together with Chinese auto market,” said Dr. -Ing. Jens Puttfarcken, President and CEO of Porsche China.

In the face of an ever-changing market environment and customer demands, Porsche has fully entered the fast lane of digital development with the establishment of the Porsche Digital China team in March. As a platform to support change, it is designed to leverage digital innovation and elevate the Porsche experience for Chinese customers. “This digital transformation will lead us from in-car experience to overall life cycle experience, granting our customers brand new and fascinating experiences by linking all facets of their life together and creating a new digital Porsche community,” added Dr. -Ing. Jens Puttfarcken, “Looking into the future, Porsche will combine the trends in electrification, interconnection and digitization in our business strategy and focus on our customers, in order to provide consumers with products and services that exceed expectations, and to deliver the pure fascination of Porsche. ”
