A British design and engineering firm has revealed this three-door Porsche Cayenne coupé.

Medrad is staying tight-lipped on the full details of its Cayenne 902 coupé until its full launch in November.

See the pics of the Cayenne 902 coupé

It is based on the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo and will be available in variable states of tune between 550-750bhp.

Medrad also claims it will be able to crack 0-60mph in 4.4sec.

The company said the car had been worked on exclusively by British engineers and designers and described its creation as a “beast”, incorporating “unique design and unbelievable power”.

In advance of the likely comments from everyone about a pointless machine this is, comparisons to the X6, etc I'd just like to say that I think it looks great!

[quote julianphillips]I'd just like to say that I think it looks great![/quote]Agreed. I'm in the market to buy one. I prefer small, compact three-door SUVs for my load carrying work, but none on the market offer decent acceleration. This looks like the proverbial pocket rocket! Man, I hope the price isn't prohibitive and the rear seats fold down or can be removed.

I'll start. Look - all you need to a achieve the same effect is a secondhand Ford Escort (a much better car incidentally) a big paintbrush and a tin of white emulsion (or some other colour if the car's white).

Paint "I am an irritating plonker and have no friends," across the Ford Escort in big letters.I can think of better words than plonker, but this is a family website.

This thing is an absolute abortion.

You can't call something the size of a small van a pocket rocket. Even in the good 'ole USof A

I'm sure some kind of augmental surgery would be more useful - and get the owner more erm, "friends"...

I'd prefer one over an Escort.

Bit of non-story this one, seeing as no-one has actually made anything yet!

Not sure who created those images, Autocar, or this previously unheard-of design house, but someone is good with photoshop. Interesting use of the same wheel / brake image for front and rear axles.

Let's wait and see if they actually build any of these, and then if anyone is stupid enough to buy one...

oh, and by the way AUTOCRA, it's MERDAD, not Medrad

3 doors do not a coupe make.

And the regular Cayenne looks better imo.
