Although some German rivals would offer it a run for its money, but they’ll still fall short of certain areas nonetheless. However depending on your priorities, you can check out what the competition offers. Alternatives in the segment include the 2020 BMW 7 Series, 2020 Audi S7/RS7, 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, 2020 BMW 6 Series, 2020 Jaguar XJ, and the 2020 Audi A8.

The Panamera Junior Model to be Called 2019 Porsche Pajun

People are wondering what the 2019 Porsche Pajun presents and what could it be. Well, in fact Porsche is getting ready to offer their audience a full fleet of vehicles which are supposed to fill in all the necessary cracks that have been created within the immense Porsche roster. The idea behind the Porsche Pajun model came quite recently and is in fact one of the more interesting approaches that Porsche is trying to pull.

The idea behind Porsche’s success is to try and fill in the market with enough luxury brands and models so everyone gets to be happy and enjoys their own car in the necessary way. That is why the roster of cars that they offer has every piece of model that one might need. The 911 vehicle is a full-fledged sports car. The Cayenne is the company’s first and most successful SUV model. Many people thought the idea of a Porsche-based SUV would not work but the Cayenne is the evidence that everything is possible. The Panamera model is the company’s sports sedan model and the versatility it offers is not met by many cars in the segment. It has enough comfort for your family members and the kids to enjoy while it can give you enough speed and power necessary for any circumstances.

So you would say that they have all of the things covered, right? Well yes and no, because they have managed to plug in all of the bigger holes and are now dealing with the small cracks between them that are left. We have all heard about one such vehicles which came out in 2013, which is the Porsche Cajun. This model was meant to bridge the gap that was created and is actually also known as the baby Cayenne model. So after the creation of Cajun, why not create a Pajun, or a baby Panamera model. The baby Panamera is the latest model that Porsche is planning to make and will be the next featured car in their attempt to bring an entirely new offer for the fans.

Assumptions about the Powertrain

Although there are still many parts about the 2019 Porsche Pajun which are not familiar to us and a lot of it still has to be determined, we are dealing with a lot of information which is only an estimation. One of them is regarding the powertrain of the potential Pajun car. As we are assuming also that this is going to be a rear-wheel drive model, we are probably looking at a potential of using a turbocharged direct-injection V6 engine which is capable of making probably somewhere between 400 horsepower and 550 hp.

But it just may so happen that multiple engines get to be used as well. For now they have multiple options on the table. One such is a 3.0 liter TDI engine, outputting 265 harrower, which could prove to be a good choice but there is also the 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 which goes all the way to 600 horsepower. We are not going to abandon the possibility of a hybrid powertrain making it here as well as there are many Porsche cars which are already turning towards the green technology.

What About an All-Electric Car

If Porsche decides to really tackle the market and present something extraordinary to their fans, then they might go for an all-electric car. There are no confirmation to support this claim but there is a great possibility that this might come to fruition. Porsche has not made an electronic car so far but the popularity of such vehicles is rising. They are going to be direct rivals to Tesla if they do so and will need to tackle their Model S vehicles in that case.

Some Design Details

What we were able to guess correctly about the 2019 Porsche Pajun is that it will be built on the same MSB platform-modular sports car matrix which the Panamera is built on. This does not come as a surprise as it would be the easiest to make the car this way and offer in the same versatility that the bigger Panamera has. It will come with some advanced features to help with the driving ability of the car and predictions include a dual-clutch PDK transmission and even ceramic brakes, but it will also come with an offered all-wheel drive also. The original models is going to be a five-door coupe car and we are probably going to get some other ones as Porsche may look to expand the lineup. A convertible version and a sedan will probably be offered along the line but the initial version is going to make its debut soon.

What to Expect for the Release Date of the 2019 Porsche Pajun?

The prospect of the 2019 Porsche Pajun or the baby Panamera as how we will certainly call it looks pretty nice. The model is a great addition to the Porsche’s already packed roster of cars. But it does not seem at all that this model is going to be an excessive vehicle to have. The idea behind it is great and we will see when they decide to greenlight the project. The release date might be still far away but the starting idea is very promising.

A 2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Spotted Recently

Recently there have been some emerging spy photos of a 2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe model doing test runs. The latest crossover model from the Porsche’s garage has shown its colors and although still secretive it has been revealed that they are working on a new car. But in fact there is still loads of mystery surrounding this model. We are calling it a Coupe, but we are still not sure whether the name will stick around. The test mule looks like a Cayenne but is a lot sleeker and dawns also some Panamera elements to it. Whether this is an SUV or a redesign of the Cayenne it is still left to be determined, but as things go we are leaning towards a coupe model.

Porsche released its second-generation Cayenne cars in 2011 when the model crossed over to America. This also brought all the different trims levels with it as the car has been introduced in both Turbo S, GTS and even the hybrid form as well. In 2015 the first facelift came for the Cayenne model. It brought new engine types and some redesigns for the interior and the exterior. There was also an update in regards with the technology the car used. It also meant that we might expect to see a new-generation model sometimes after 2018.

But the spy photos do not show a new-generation Cayenne model. The body lines of the car do not confirm it and we are looking at something completely new. Rumors have it that this is there planned Porsche coupe which was planned for a release in 2016 but was later abandoned. The competition did not leave any favorable odds for the Porsche at the time, so we are probably looking at the first prototype of a coupe as the situation is more favorable this time.

The spy photos are showing us an awkward looking car which could be an SUV and is certainly not a new-generation Cayenne. But we are hard-pressed to say that this is a coupe version of the Porsche Cayenne model. This is an analysis on how the car might look like and how a coupe Cayenne model might fair in the segment.

Exterior Look of the Coupe

First of all, it is really hard to find the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe among the spy photos taken of the car. It does seem a little bit out of place but that is often the case with prototypes. They start looking pretty much awkwardly and end up being regular cars. This one looks like a mesh between a Cayenne and a Panamera. The side of the car, the roofline and the entire rear seem to have been taken from the sedan while the majority of the front is the same like in the Cayenne model. But this model has some elements which are added and not used for any of the two cars. Frist of all the wheelbase is shorter but the fenders are wider. Sider skirts are added for this model and the bumper also adds some more new elements.

Whether this is what we think it is, the potential Porsche Cayenne coupe is certainly going to borrow certain elements from the SUV model and the Panamera as well. Some apparent additions might include a roof spoiler or a trunk lid spoiler which will make things a little bit aggressive looking while the rear doors and the quarter windows are also going to get their own changes as well.

But also expected are some unique features for the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe. These might include a completely new redesigned bumper which could add massive air intakes and in the rear we can hope to get different taillights and a new kind of an exhaust system with a new design.

No Exact News for the Interior

The inside of the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe remains the biggest mystery. But what we do get to see is the same kind of a look which you might see in a base Cayenne model. Since the last Cayenne received a facelift which happened recently, we can probably say that they are going to base it on that one. But if a new Cayenne models comes out in the meantime then some other things might come into the mix.

What we are expecting to get is a mixture of state of the art technology as well as some very soft and luxurious materials which are going to be incorporated into the car. It is going to be at least two years until the car comes out so some new technological pieces might come out until then and get to be offered. What we can also say for the interior is that it might become a lot sportier looking. We can hope for a lot of unique details that might concrete the steering wheel and the door panels as well.

Drivetrain Offers

When it comes to the engine choice, the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe is going to take the powertrain choices from the base Cayenne model. They are probably not going to cause any additional strains here and are simply going to transfer the engines here and be done with it. It might also happen that they only borrow the range-topic engines and scrap the rest. So this means that the S trim might get a V-6 option which could have an output up to 400 horsepower. The Turbo and Turbo S versions will probably get the 4.8-liter V-8 with twin turbos, making 510 and 560 horsepower. We are also keeping the possibility of a diesel engine being on the table as well so it means a 4.1-liter V-6 one which makes 380 hp. Do not forget, Porsche is keen on hybrid powertrains recently so a 3.0-liter V-6 form the E-Hybrid model pared with an electric motor and making 410 horses is a very good possibility.

Price Tag

There is not telling how much the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe might cost, but if we are to base it on the price of the current Cayenne we might get an idea. The base MSRP of the outgoing Cayenne car is$59,600, which would mean that the upcoming coupe starts at $65,000 and reach $70,000 for the higher level S trim models. There is still a lot of time to go on so this might change completely.

2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Release Date

We are still quite early in the developing stage of the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe model so there is no telling what might happen. We are hoping to see a model but it is not sure what they may decide to do in the end. The pictures are certainly not showing a new generation vehicles and although this is on its way the coupe might come before it. We are ever so hopeful for this car to appear.

Rivals

The most suitable rivals which the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe may go against includes the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe and the BMW X6. But since it is a first for this version of the Cayenne model it cannot be predicted how well they might fair in the segment.
