Merdad Porsche Cayenne 902 Coupe – Click above for high-res image gallery

The Porsche Cayenne has never really received the kind of warm embrace from Porsche purists that the suits at Stuttgart would prefer. Never mind the fact that the Cayenne sells in droves, thereby allowing the company to continue to build physics-melting sports cars, the SUV is as far from the lightweight, low-slung creations that made the company famous as you can get, and that just rubs some folk the wrong way. Well, stand back Porsche fans. It looks like Merdad is out to right those wrongs.

The tuning company is planning to unveil a lowered, two-door version of the Cayenne at London's MPH show in November. Along with shedding its rear doors, the SUV will pack anywhere between 550 and 750 horsepower, depending on the level of tuning, and should be able to dart to 60 mph in around 4.4 seconds in its most powerful guise.

That all sounds pretty tasty to us, especially since we have a Cayenne-sized soft spot in our hearts for two-door SUVs. Even so, we'll have to wait until we see some real-live photos of the creation to make up our minds as to whether or not this is an improvement on the German SUV's recipe.
