Porsche creates one, a super-exclusive unit of a Cayenne convertible, see why

The single prototype of the Porsche Cayenne convertible is now at the Porsche Museum. Porsche said that this prototype of the Porsche Cayenne is not a roadgoing prototype, but rather a Package Function Model or PFM. When Porsche launched its five-door SUV, the Cayenne in December 2002 it also thought of alternate body shapes for the SUV.

This single prototype of the Porsche Cayenne convertible now sits at the Porsche Museum. Porsche considered three additional variants for the Cayenne SUV, a coupe, a model 20 centimetres, one with an additional row of seats and a convertible. Porsche went ahead to build a Cayenne-based convertible which was approximately 4.8-metres long. 

The sports car manufacturer informed that this prototype is not a roadgoing prototype, but rather a Package Function Model or PFM. Back then, the designers removed the roof and it was dispensed with the body-stiffening measures that are necessary for a convertible. Porsche informed test drives were never planned for this unit as the convertible PFM was only built to assess four criteria.

There was disagreement on the final issue in 2002, shared Porsche and hence two different rear sections were designed for the prototype. Porsche was considering if the seating will be comfortable throughout the vehicle when the roof tapers in a more coupe-like way towards the rear and when the windscreen and A-pillars are shortened. 

Though Porsche took up the coupe idea of 2002 later again and implemented it in 2019 by making a successful production model, the company did not pursue the convertible idea further. The company stated predictions related to profitability were not looking promising and doubts remained as to whether the car would look as appealing as a Porsche should.
