ATLANTA, GA – Porsche is set to unveil the second-generation Cayenne GTS at the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, also known as Auto China, on April 24, 2012. Based on the Cayenne S, this new model is equipped with 20 additional horsepower, a 20 mm lower ride height, and a lower final drive ratio.
The latest Cayenne 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 Cayenne GTS to sprint from a standing start to 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. Twenty-inch RS Spyder wheels with a unique offset for the GTS are standard. Two new colours are available for the Cayenne GTS: Peridot Metallic and Carmine Red. A sport exhaust system with matte black twin tailpipes is standard.
Inside, the 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 Cayenne GTS will go on sale in August, 2012.
