Our favorite models of the very popular Cayenne lineup, the Cayenne GTS and Cayenne GTS Coupe are just stunning in every way. Both of these marks the return of a V8 engine to the GTS line up and after spending time with Cayenne GTS you will see why. We put our Cayenne GTS test ride through the paces of daily use from running needed errands to driving on every curvy road we could find to indulge our driving pleasure.
Being able to stand apart from the competition is a fantastic distinction for this handsome new GTS. The standard Sport Design package includes an exclusive appearance thanks to the bold and graphic black accents. Equipped with standard 21-inch RS Spyder Design wheels in satin black, LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), and continuous LED taillights. Continuing the bold design are front air intakes, side window trim, tailpipes of the sports exhaust system, all emboldened by the rear Porsche logo and model designation that are finished in black. To say it simply, this GTS is on fire both inside and out, style matched with ample under the hood substance.
The Porsche developed twin-turbo V8 with 453 hp and a standard eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission will power you from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and the top track speed is 168 mph. Just mentioning should you decide to do some track laps on your way to Target.
Inside it is a world of true “Porsche Luxury,” with Alcantara® on the headliner, seat centers, center console armrests, and doors, and the interior is accented with black brushed aluminum. Standard eight-way sport seats offer optimal support for your favorite curvy road and while doing your best Louis Hamilton dynamic cornering. GTS logos can be found on the front doors, door sills, tachometer, and headrests and each will be a source of great pride in your favorite ride.
Thanks to a lower chassis by 30 mm as compared to the Cayenne S, you get that agile performance that is at the core of what makes the GTS models beyond everything, and be sure to check your pulse after your first drive. Porsche Cayenne GTS.
