GTS to offer the best on-road characteristics of any Cayenne Porsche
Porsche will add
some spice to the 100th anniversary of the Chicago Auto Show by
unveiling the Cayenne GTS to the American public. Already known for
exceptional on and off-road prowess, the GTS has been formulated,
tested and tweaked to offer the best on-road characteristics of any
Cayenne Porsche has ever produced.
The Cayenne GTS features a 405hp 4.8 liter V-8 engine. Based on the
same V8 found in the Cayenne S, this more robust powerplant can be
coupled either with an automatic Tiptronic S or, for the first time in
a Cayenne V8, a six-speed manual transmission for those who want to
take full advantage of this new power and suspension package. The GTS
gets its cornering prowess from standard 21-inch alloy rims equipped
with 295/35 R21 tires and air suspension that features Porsche Active
Suspension Management (PASM).
The Cayenne GTS front end is reminiscent of the Cayenne Turbo while
the body has a lower stance and a striking new wheel-arch design that
complements the new 21-inch rims. The interior boasts redesigned front
and rear seats that offer a sportier look and feel with Alcantara to
hold both driver and passenger in place during spirited driving.
The 2008 Cayenne GTS goes on sale in February and pricing for this new model is US $69,300.
