The new Porsche Cayenne GTS builds on the Cayenne model’s reputation offering a more powerful engine, increased dynamic power development and a tauter chassis with lower ride height.
Beneath the bonnet of the Cayenne GTS lies an uprated 4.8-litre V8 engine, with 420 hp (309 kW), based on the Cayenne S power unit. Power transmission is via the eight-speed Tiptronic S with integrated auto start/stop function. The engine and gearbox have each been tuned to deliver particularly sporting levels of responsiveness, with the consequence that the Cayenne GTS sprints from a standing start to 62mph in 5.7 seconds, reaching 100 mph in 13.3 seconds. The top speed is 162mph and the Combined fuel consumption on the NEDC is 26.4mpg.
Making its debut at the Beijing Motor Show on April 23, the Cayenne GTS goes on sale in the UK in July 2012, priced from £67,147.
