The SUV with all the prowess of a sports car is entering its second generation. In Beijing, at Auto China 2012, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is celebrating the world premiere of the new Cayenne GTS.
The latest version of the Cayenne concentrates on sporty performance, with a more powerful engine; more dynamic power development; a tauter chassis with lower ride height and sporty equipment. In the process, the new Cayenne GTS doesn’t just fill the gap between the Cayenne S and the Cayenne Turbo, but stands out from the other models with its own special character.
The Cayenne GTS’s bonnet conceals a 420 hp uprated V8 engine, based on the Cayenne S power unit. Power transmission is ensured by the eight-speed Tiptronic S with integrated auto start/stop function. The dynamically-tuned engine and transmission design reinforces the sporty characteristics, enabling short bursts of speed just when needed. The Cayenne GTS sprints from a standing start to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds, reaching 160 km/h in 13.3 seconds. Top speed is 261 km/h and NEDC fuel consumption is 10.7 litres per 100 kilometres.
The Cayenne GTS’s looks openly proclaim its pronounced sportiness with eye-catching features such as the front-end - borrowed from the Cayenne Turbo.
It feature frames and trims in high-gloss black, prominent side skirts and wider wheel arches, as well as a distinctive roof spoiler with twin-wing profile.
The interior exudes sporty elegance, the leather interior features Alcantara elements as standard. Front sports seats with eight adjustment options are featured as standard in the new Cayenne GTS.
