Official pics of the Merdad 2 door Cayenne

Six or seven months ago word first broke out that tuner Merdad intended to come up with a 'coupe' version of the Porsche Cayenne SUV. Some shook their heads in amazement, while some eagerly waited for it. Those that were eager for it would be pleased to note that Merdad had indeed built such a Cayenne and had displayed it at the Londow Motor show in the United Kingdom last November.

Merdad of UK has basically released official press photos of the car, called the Merdad GT 902 2door coupe. No real details have been made public as to how the conversion was done. They must have welded the rear doors shut and made a new rear window surround as well as new rear glass in order to achieve the 'sleek' (for an SUV) 2 door look.

What you' get if you bought one would be the lack of rear doors, full Merdad 'unique' exterior styling (i.e. a bodykit), special leather interior trim, special Merdad 'Super Sound' exhaust system, electronic lowering module (up to 40mm lower), 22inch forged black or silver edition rims, Merdad alloy racing pedals, Merdad 'entrance blends' (door sill trims), Merdad floor mats and Merdad special steering wheel. It basically started getting boring after the 'super sound' exhaust system for me. But you know how marketing statements are. Strange thing is that Merdad seems to act as if a 2 door Cayenne is a normal item that we see everyday. They should be making a bigger fuss about it.

I do wonder if there would be any gray imports of this 2 door monster SUV in our region any time soon. A door door luxury SUV harks back to the days when you could only get a Range Rover in 2 doors the 1970s.
