At last, the Porsche Cayenne lineup is almost completed (we still need the Cayenne Turbo S) as the German manufacturer introduced today the all-new Cayenne GTS. Set to make its world debut at the Auto China 2012 in Beijing, the new car promises to offer a more powerful engine, more dynamic power development, a tauter chassis with lower ride height as well as sporty equipment.
The new Cayenne GTS fills the gap between the Cayenne S and the Cayenne Turbo and it is powered by a V8 engine (same found on the Cayenne S) delivering 420 hp (309 kW) and mated to an eight-speed Tip-tronic S with integrated auto start/stop function.
According to Porsche, the car hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.7 seconds, 160 km/h (100 mph) in 13.3 seconds while the top speed is limited to 261 km/h or 162 mph. The NEDC fuel consumption is 10.7 litres per 100 kilometres. The 2013 Cayenne GTS is also equipped with the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which lowers the the body by 24 mm relative to the Cayenne S.
Moreover, the GTS comes with a new front end, borrowed from the Cayenne Turbo, frames and trims in high-gloss black, new side sills and wider wheel arches but also a distinctive roof spoiler with twin-wing profile.
Inside, the 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS features a leather interior with Alcantara elements as standard. Moreover, the front sports seats with eight adjustment options are offered as standard. Regarding the price, the car will be available for eight adjustment options in Germany and will go on sale in July 2012.
