Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Previewed by the Volvo Concept Coupe.
At the unveil of the Volvo S90 sedan, Thomas Ingenlath, Volvo’s senior vice president of design, hinted to Auto Express that a 2-door coupe could also join the “90 cluster” lineup, which currently includes the Volvo XC90, S90 and the soon-to-be-unveiled Volvo V90 estate.
If it does come into fruition, Volvo will finally have a spiritual successor to the legendary Volvo P1800 2+2 GT car. The company has already previewed the design of such a bodystyle with the Volvo Concept Coupe in 2013, which debuted the company’s next generation design language.
Like its 4-door brother, it will be based on the SPA platform and source the 2.0 Drive-E petrol and diesel engine lineup, with power outputs varying between 190 hp for the entry-level D4 diesel variant and 407 hp in the T8 Twin Engine petrol hybrid. A Polestar variant is also likely to be considered for sportier performance and track handling.
The Volvo S90 Coupe will slot in the 2-door 2+2 GT luxury segment which comprises of rivals like the Mercedes E Class Coupe, BMW 6 Series, Lexus RC and Audi A5.
