Porsche will unveil the new Cayenne GTS at the upcoming Beijing International Auto Show. The Porsche Cayenne GTS is built based on the Cayenne S and is equipped with additional 20 hp, a 20 mm lower ride height and a lower final drive ratio for improved driving dynamics.
The new Cayenne GTS transmits power from its 420 hp V8 to an active All-Wheel-Drive system coupled to an eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission with integrated Auto Start Stop function. The specially tuned engine and transmission combination enable the Porsche Cayenne GTS to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.4 seconds and to achieve a top-track-speed of 162 mph.
The Cayenne GTS is recognizable from the outside by its high-gloss black trim, prominent side skirts and wider wheel arches as well as the hood and front fascia from the Cayenne Turbo. 20-inch RS Spyder wheels with a unique offset for the GTS are standard as are upgraded brakes from the Cayenne Turbo. Two new colors are available for the Cayenne GTS; Peridot Metallic and Carmine Red. A sport exhaust system with matte black twin tailpipes is standard.
Inside, the Porsche Cayenne GTS features exclusive GTS eight-way adjustable front sports seats with Alcantara accents. For the first time in the Cayenne, a new Sport Chrono package is now available to monitor the improved performance offered by the GTS model. Additionally, a Sound Symposer channels authentic engine intake sounds into the cabin.
The 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS will go on sale in the U.S. in August 2012, with a base MSRP of $82,050, not including a $975 delivery charge.
