This is how the Cayenne should’ve looked right from the start if the Porsche Board would have had guts! But now they fixed it and it looks great.
Not too bulky not too flat, just impressive and bold.
By chopping the roof by almost one inch (20mm) from a regular Cayenne, Porsche designers made the A-pillars shallower and the back seats have smaller headroom, but thanks to the lower rear seat position compared with the Cayenne by 30 mm, this will not be such a problem.
The good news is that the Cayenne Coupe’s trunk is big enough to accommodate almost 22 cubic feet (615 liters) and can grow up to 54.3 cubic feet (1540 liters) with the rear seats folded down. The aerodynamic package includes a combination of a fixed roof spoiler and an adaptive spoiler, both of which are increasing the model’s aerodynamic efficiency at higher speeds. The adaptive spoiler can extend by 5.3 inches (135 mm).
Inside, the Cayenne GTS featured the new 12.3” Full-HD touch-screen from the Porsche Communication Management infotainment system. For the instrument cluster, only the tachometer remained analog and it was flanked by two 7” displays, needed for other relevant driving data. The front sport-seats featured the GTS logo embroiled on their backseat. The Alcantara upholstery and the red stitches were part of the version’s sporty appeal.
For the drivetrain, the Cayenne GTS was fitted with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine. It offered 20 hp more than its predecessor, reaching 460 hp. It was paired to a standard 8-speed automatic gearbox. Due to the sport suspension, it sat 20 mm (0.8”) lower than the rest of the Cayenne S.
