The upcoming Porsche Cayenne coupé has been spotted undergoing high-speed testing at the Nurburgring, revealing the SUV's retractable rear spoiler in action for the first time.
The coupé variant is set to compete with the BMW X6 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé from the end of 2019. It is intended to broaden the scope of the Cayenne line-up, which currently comprises only one body style and features petrol and hybrid models.
The spy pictures show that the new Porsche model receives the same front-end styling as the third-generation Cayenne, albeit with a unique front bumper design. In a move mirroring that of its key rivals, it adopts a newly styled liftback-style tailgate, altered rear side windows and a new tail-light design that is aimed at providing the Cayenne coupé with a more sporting profile.
The retractable rear spoiler, which had previously only been seen in its lowered position, appears to raise and lower as a single piece, rather than use the split wing design seen in the second-generation Panamera.
