The beefier Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe uses that same electric motor and battery, but here, it's slapped onto a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8.

The new Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid is being presented in regular SUV and Cayenne Coupe forms, based on the latest-gen model. It pairs a 3.0-liter single-turbo V6 engine and an electric motor, for 455 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.

Porsche has introduced a second plug-in hybrid into its Cayenne range, but this time one that packs a mighty 671bhp powertrain.

Since it is not only the performance that is the top model, the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and its coupé offshoot are extensively equipped at the factory: an electric roll stabiliser, a rear axle cross lock, a ceramic high-performance brake and the Sport Chrono package are standard features on board. In addition to the two top models, the Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupé now complements the series. It can be recharged via the standard on-board 7.2kW AC charger within 2.4 hours, when using a 400V connection and 16-amp fuse. In essence, it's most of the same stuff that you'll find on the long-roof Cayenne, just with less cargo space and more style.

For the USA market, the models will come nicely equipped with the Sport Chrono Package and ceramic composite brakes.

Cowboys QB Prescott turns down $30million-per-year offer
The Cowboys and Dak Prescott apparently aren't close on a new deal, but how far apart they are remains a question. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is reportedly seeking a contract extension worth $40 million a year.

The coupé, which is a good $4,000+ dearer than the wagon, comes with some slinky extras, including adaptive rear spoiler, panoramic glass roof (a carbon roof is optional), and "a rear seat bench with the characteristics of two individual seats".

The same Lightweight Sport Package versions associated with the other Cayenne Coupe models are also available to the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe and Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe.

That's hardly the new model's only trick, considering it also defied its mass by clinging to the skidpad with 1.00 g in grip and coming to a full stop from 70 miles per hour in only 150 feet, shading the previous Turbo S by 0.05 g and six feet. Porsche is remaining mum on the combined driving range for the new hybrid SUVs, however which makes us think that they will likely require trips to a charging station quite often. Top speed is an electronically-limited 183 miles per hour. Auxiliary air-conditioning, controlled through the PCM and the Porsche Connect app, is also offered, along with options such as 22-inch alloy wheels and rear-wheel steering.

For most South Africans, our first port of call when it comes to hybrid cars is the Toyota Prius, which isn't exactly a vehicle that's exciting to drive.

The Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe also has a few extra standard features over the standard Cayenne E-Hybrid.
