Well why not, says The Sleuth. Many luxury-vehicle makers have already created fastback versions of their utility vehicles, starting with the BMW X6 many years ago. Apparently it’s a virtual certainty that Porsche will introduce a four-door “coupe” version of the popular Cayenne utility vehicle. The new model, which is expected to launch sometime in 2019 as a 2020 model, will look just like a tall wagon from the front, but behind the rear doors a giant hatch will change the vehicle’s character from staid to sporty. There’s no definitive word as to powertrains, it’s likely that the Cayenne’s current engine lineup will carry over.
