Singapore. Porsche returns to the Singapore Motorshow in 2020 with its most extensive line-up of vehicles for thethird consecutive year. From 9th to 12th January 2020 at the Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, Porsche will display a show-stopping range of high-performance everyday sports carsrepresenting all model linescurrently available in Singapore.
Visitors will get the opportunity to come up close to the new Cayenne Coupé as it debuts in Singapore. A true athlete in the SUV segment, the Cayenne Coupé is set to impress with its athletic appeal, dynamic contours and new technical features.
In addition, motorsport fans are in for a treat as the new Porsche 935, a track-only model and one of 77 exclusive units produced worldwide, will make its first appearance in Southeast Asia at the Singapore Motorshow 2020.
Launch of the new Cayenne Coupé – a sports car shaped by performance
Porsche enters a new vehicle segment by extending the third generation of its successful SUV range. The Cayenne Coupé arrives as a progressive and emotional model that combines the day-to-day usability of an SUV with the driving characteristics of a sports car.
Henrik Dreier, General Manager–Singapore, Porsche Asia Pacific, said, “Like every Porsche, the new Cayenne Coupé stands out as the sportiest in its class with its bold, athletic appearance. We are excited to further accelerate the success of the Cayenne family with a sports car that perfectly combines Porsche design DNA with outstanding performance and driving pleasure.”
Jason Lim, General Manager of Stuttgart Auto, said, “Since the introduction of the first Cayenne in 2003, this Porsche sports car has been a hit with customers in Singapore. We are confident the new Cayenne Coupé will be well-received locally, especially amongst customers who share the performance-oriented mentality that Porsche stands for.”
The new Cayenne Coupé impresses with its sharper contours, iconic 911 flyline, and an adaptive rear spoiler–a world first for SUVs. As part of Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA), the spoiler is harmoniously integrated into the vehicle silhouette and extends by 135 millimetres at speeds of 90 km/h and above, increasing the downforce on the rear axle and improving driving stability.
Other highlights include a rear bench with the characteristics of two individual seats, and two roof concepts: Apanoramic, fixed glass roof fitted as standard, or an optional carbon roof. The significantly steeper roof line falling to the rear makes its appearance even more dynamic and visually positions it as the sportiest-looking model in the segment. For maximum performance, everything in the Cayenne Coupé has been reinterpreted and perfectly coordinated. Aerodynamics and exterior design merge in an intimate symbiosis to form a sports car that ensures full performance potential in every moment.
The Cayenne Coupé will be available with three different engine variants: The Cayenne Coupé has a six-cylinder, turbocharged engine with 250 kW (340hp), accelerating from a standing start to 100 km/h in 6.0 seconds. The 2.9 litre V6 engine featuring twin turbocharging is at the heart of the new Cayenne S Coupé, generating 324 kW (440 hp) of power and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.0 seconds. The top-of-the-range Cayenne Turbo Coupé model comes with a four-litre V8 engine with twin turbocharging, 404 kW (550 hp) and completes the century sprint in 3.9 seconds.
The Cayenne Coupé will be priced from SGD360,188*, while the Cayenne S Coupé will be priced from SGD 450,188*, and the Cayenne Turbo Coupé will be priced from SGD 621,888*.
The new Porsche 935
There are Porsche race cars that motorsport fans will never forget, and Porsche is honoured to present motorsport fans with the breathtaking new Porsche 935 making its first appearance in the region exclusively at the Singapore Motorshow this year.
Racing design heritage is central to the new track-only Porsche 935, which features a body reminiscent of the legendary Porsche 935/78 Le Mans race car, which fans dubbed “Moby Dick” due to its elongated shape, massive fairings and white base colour.
Many details of the exterior are a salute to winning vehicles from the company’s motor racing history: The aerodynamically capped rims echo those of the 935/78, with the LED rear lights on the rear wing endplates adopted from the 919 Hybrid LMP1 race car. The side mirrors hail from the current Le Mans-winning 911 RSR, with the exposed titanium tailpipes modelled on the Porsche 908 from 1968.
The spectacular aerodynamics is a completely new development, and the race car’s technology for clubsport events and private trainings on racetracks is based on a high-performance sports car, the 911 GT2 RS.
The new 935 is a 515 kW (700 hp) racer powered by a state-of-the-art 3.8-litre six-cylinder twin-turbo engine, which is largely identical to the high-performance standard unit mounted in the road-legal 911 GT2 RS, achieving 0 to 100 km/h in 2.7 seconds.
In addition to the new Cayenne Coupé and Porsche 935, Porsche will round out its largest display at the Singapore Motorshow 2020 with the 911 Carrera S Coupé,Cayenne E-Hybrid, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, 718 Boxster, 718 Cayman, Macan and Macan S.
