You need to go back to you bedroom and close the door. Your Elon Musk in speedos posters are calling you.

You need to look up "indisputable".

*checks in after a few hours*



In regards to JIT - the whole industry has moved towards that. It's simply an evolution in the search for maximum efficiency and lean manufacturing. A race to the bottom to minimise overheads, if you will. Car manufacturers with bases in Britain are soiling themselves because Brexit may mean lengthy customs queues. Building inventory to prevent that will simply not happen due to stock-holding costs.

New pictures without the fake back end. Apparently it was silent so there's a hybrid or EV version.

Looks better than I thought it would, it might need massive wheels to properly pull it off though, the wheels on this look a bit small (in proportion to the car)

To me seems a new EV platform for a new SUV.

The top is a Panamera like bodyshell, but the bottom is a "skateboard" battery platform, like the Jaguar iPace.

Indeed that was the photo/prototype that sparked the cayenne coupe idea but it seems it might be something else?

Seems like a lifted panemera, and I agree, skateboard like platform. Wonder if the taycan platform can accommodate an suv.

Indeed at some point it has been confirmed that that was an EV of sorts, and the spyshot is already quiite old, probably even the Taycan, but, more likely, an EV Cross over;

The Cayenne Coupe is nearly finished, and looks rather different in terms of proportions (as it sits on a FWD derived platform):

wish this actually used the RWD platform from the spy shots above. "coupe" suv's always look like big see-saws to me when they're based on FWD platforms.

Not likely, that is a dedicated platform and is shared with Audi for the upcoming e-tron GT and probably with Bentley.

This seems to be the PPE (premium platform electric) or the the Audi C-BEV platform that is used in the e-tron.
