Porsche will be displaying the Porsche Cayenne GTS at the 2007 Frankfurt International Motor Show, the latest addition to the Cayenne SUV model line-up. The Porsche Cayenne GTS is the first Cayenne to feature Porsche Active Suspension Management, and it is equipped with steel springs. This combination previously reserved exclusively for Porsche’s sports cars is a first for the Cayenne SUV.
The Porsche Cayenne GTS takes the 4.8 litre V8 from the Cayenne S and tunes it up to produce 20 more horsepower – the result is 405hp at 6,500rpm and a Cayenne S-matching 500Nm of torque at 3,500rpm. It also has a shorter axle drive ratio than the Cayenne S – 4.1:1 as opposed to 3.55:1. 0 to 100km/h takes 6.1 seconds – 0.5 seconds quicker than the Cayenne S with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
The front and rear design are taken from the top of the range engined Cayenne Turbo, and the Cayenne GTS is available with two new exclusive colours: GTS Red and Nordic Gold Metallic. The GTS slots in between the S and the Turbo.
