    Porsche Unveils The New Cayenne GTS

    During the first generation Porsche Cayenne's life, Porsche unveiled the Cayenne GTS. The Cayenne GTS was a hardcore performance version that offered a tuned naturally-aspirated V8 engine and other tweaks to make it one of fastest SUVs for its time.

    Now, Porsche is doing a new Cayenne GTS that will be shown at this month's Beijing Auto Show.

    The GTS is based on the Cayenne S, with which it shares a naturally-aspirated V-8 engine. Horsepower has been increased by 20 horsepower to 420. Transmission choice will be an eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission. All-wheel-drive will be standard.

    Performance figures for the Cayenne GTS stand at 5.4 seconds for 60 MPH and a top speed of 162 MPH.

    Outside, the Cayenne GTS is lowered by 20 mm, gets gloss-black trim and bodywork from the Cayenne Turbo, 20-inch RS Spyder wheels with a unique offset, a sports exhaust system with matte black twin tailpipes, and two new available colors: Peridot Metallic and Carmine Red.

    Inside, the GTS gets custom eight-way sport seats with Alcantara accents, while for the first time the GTS gets a Sport Chrono package, which allow owners to monitor performance. Porsche is also introducing a Sound Symposer that the company says, “channels authentic engine intake sounds into the cabin.”

    The new Cayenne GTS arrives at Porsche dealers in August with a base price of $82,050.

    Lost the mojo after losing the 6-speed manual. The older one with stick shift was ridiculousness over a ridiculous vehicle from Porsche, and hence was ridiculously desirable.
