STUTTGART, Germany — The second-generation 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS will make its world debut at the upcoming Beijing Auto Show, with a more powerful engine and upgraded chassis. Slated to arrive late this summer in the U.S. as a 2013 model, the Cayenne GTS will slot between the Cayenne S and the Cayenne Turbo.
The new Cayenne GTS features a 414-horsepower version of Porsche's naturally aspirated 4.8-liter V8, fitted with auto stop-start and mated to an eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission. Porsche claims 0-60 acceleration takes 5.4 seconds, with 0-100 in 13.3 seconds. Top speed is 162 mph, and fuel economy on the European driving cycle is 22 mpg.
Hardware upgrades include Porsche Active Suspension Management, which lowers ride height by 0.9 inch and enables more precise handling.
The Cayenne GTS borrows the front end of the Cayenne Turbo, adding such exterior touches as wide wheel arches, side skirts and a twin-wing roof spoiler. The cockpit is trimmed in leather and Alcantara.
Porsche said the new Cayenne GTS will go on sale in the U.S. in August, priced from $83,025, including shipping.
Edmunds.com says: Consider this the "turbo look" version of the Cayenne, which certainly isn't a bad thing.
