Porsche Cayenne GTS
Porsche Cayenne GTS. Muscular, athletic, powerful and challenging. The Cayenne GTS makes a clear statement. On every straight and in every bend.
As with previous Porsche Cayenne GTS models, the new model is based on the regular S model but has been driven down the Turbo model line to receive a number of upgrades. These upgrades include a Turbo front bumper, Sport Design bodykit (deeper side sills and wider wheel arch mouldings) and 20-inch RS Spyder alloy wheels. The brakes have also been taken from the Turbo, which means 390mm discs and six-piston callipers on the front, 358mm and four-piston callipers on the rear axle.
Inside there’s alcantara a-plenty, including covering the new 918 inspired steering wheel and the centres of the eight-way adjustable GTS sports seats.
The 3.6-litre twin-turbo V6 engine is taken from the Porsche Cayenne GTS, and as with previous generations of GTS models Porsche has extracted some extra power and torque from it. Power is up 26bhp to 436bhp and torque to 443lb ft (up 63lb ft). As with all Cayenne’s it runs permanent four-wheel drive through an eight-speed Tiptronic S gearbox resulting in a 5.2second 0-62mph time (5.1secs if you specify the optional Sport Chromo package). Top speed is an irrelevant 162mph.
The biggest technical change is that this is the first Cayenne GTS not to be fitted with a normally aspirated V8 engine, that engine having been dropped when the Cayenne range was updated in 2014. It means this GTS looses the distinctive V8 roar that has entertained so many since the GTS was first introduced in 2007.
