The media were given the opportunity to test drive the new Porsche Cayenne Coupe S, brought in by the authorised dealer of Porsche vehicles in the Sultanate QAF Eurokars, yesterday.

The exterior of the Cayenne Coupe S truly sets it apart from the Cayenne, with a sporty image giving it that athletic look.

Powered by a 2.9-litre V6 engine with twin turbo-charging, it can produce 440hp (324kW), maximum torque of 550Nm, and accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 5.0 second with a top speed of 263km/h.

The test drive session, which started at The Walk in Beribi, enabled journalists to have a firsthand experience on the handling capability, stability, power, and the safety features of the Cayenne Coupe S.

The driving experience was a joy. The steering wheel is easily handled even during aggressive driving and cornering, while the braking system is excellent. Importantly, it is still comfortable to drive during heavy traffic.

The public can head down to the Porsche Centre Brunei in Beribi to take a closer look at the Porsche Cayenne Coupe S.
