Porsche Cayenne GTS

Published on 10.02.2021

Back to eight cylinders

The GTS models are the pure sports models of the Porsche family. Whilst these three letters initially signalled increased comfort in a thoroughbred sports car, over time they’ve become synonymous with a sportier drive – with the usual high level of comfort. With the Cayenne GTS and Cayenne GTS Coupé, Porsche has supplemented the SUV range with two models both designed for a particularly sporty drive performance. That said, contrary to the general downsizing trend, the Cayenne GTS says goodbye to the 3.6 l V6-Biturbo engine of the previous model and brings in the 4.0 l V8 often seen in turbo models – although in attenuated form.
With 460 horsepower (338 kW) and 620 Nm of torque, the new Cayenne GTS delivers a much-improved performance across the board. This two tonne all-wheel drive is amazingly sharp round the bends. Steering is firm, responding directly and precisely, and doesn’t give any artificial resistance, even in sports mode. Fuel consumption is estimated at a little over 11 litres, but is a few litres higher when the car is used as it ought to be on winding country roads. You pay a high price for pleasure! 
For the look, the Stuttgart-based manufacturer stays true to the GTS tradition with the Cayenne, giving the SUV subtle, dark accents. The LED headlights with dark surround are probably the most striking feature of the GTS. With partially digital instruments and a large infotainment touchscreen, the cockpit features dark brushed aluminium and lots of alcantara fabric, and the numerous GTS logos don’t let you forget which Cayenne model you’re sitting in. The build quality, controls, space and boot volume are all equally impressive. When it comes to safety and assist systems, networking and connectivity, both GTS models are at the same superior level as the other Cayenne models.
Prices start at €113,022 for the Cayenne GTS and €117,351 for the GTS Coupé.
