Typically for the GTS models, the powertrain plays a particularly important part: instead of the 3.6-litre V6 biturbo engine from its predecessor, a V8 heart now beats once more under the bonnet of the Porsche Cayenne GTS and the GTS Coupé.
With an output of 460 PS (338 kW) and torque of 620 Nm, the 4.0 L biturbo engine offers significantly improved performance in all disciplines. Both GTS models sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds with the Sport Chrono package and have a top speed of 270 km/h. A lowered performance-oriented chassis, a unique design and enhanced equipment round off the new GTS package.
The V8 is matched to a Tiptronic S eight-speed automatic transmission. Adaptive cylinder control, direct petrol injection with central injector position and an intelligently designed thermal management system further enhance the powertrain.
A specially configured sports exhaust system is fitted to deliver a highly emotive aural experience. The exhaust produces a rich, sporty sound with a unique character.
The high frequency-tuned sports exhaust system is a new development. It features two centrally positioned oval tailpipes that are offered exclusively on the Cayenne GTS Coupé and in future also on the Cayenne Turbo Coupé.
