The Cayenne GTS’s come with a uprated 420hp (309kW) V8 engine from Cayenne S. The V8 engine paired with a 8-speed Tiptronic S gearbox with integrated auto start/stop function. An especially dynamically tuned engine and transmission design reinforces the emphatically sporty characteristics, enabling short bursts of speed at any time. The Cayenne GTS sprints from a 0-100km/h in 5.7 seconds, reaching 160 km/h in 13.3 seconds. The top speed is 261 km/h and the NEDC fuel consumption 10.7 litres/100km.

The specially tuned chassis ensures thrilling driving dynamics. It is more tautly tuned, equipped with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and lowers the body by 24 mm relative to the Cayenne S. As a result, the new Cayenne GTS is even closer to the road and moves with the sports car’s trademark composure and agility.
