The new Porsche Cayenne Coupe is about as close as you’ll find to an SUV that represents the ethos of the crouching 911. Clamber up into the typically modern cabin layout of a Turbo model in particular and you will leave it possibly giddy but still smiling as I discovered this week at its launch in Austria.   It’s testament to company Porsche’s wishes for maximum driver interaction. The most obvious difference from the regular Cayenne is the roof which dips sharply from the B-pillar. Engines and running gear are identical but the execution is different. The Coupe is 4,931mm long which is 13mm more than the Cayenne SUV, but the width is unchanged. The Coupe is also about 50kg lighter.
