2020 Porsche Cayenne GTS

Cayenne GTS and Cayenne Coupe GTS now have a 4.0 V8, retail in Singapore from S$520k sans COE


SINGAPORE

The Porsche Cayenne GTS and Cayenne GTS Coupe models will put a smile on avid drivers’ faces, since they buck the trend of dwindling cylinders and ever-less-throaty engines.

The new additions to the Cayenne lineup have traded in the previous 3.6-litre V6 engine for Porsche’s current oomph-laden 4.0-litre V8. The cars are available for booking and cost from S$520,388 and S$533,788 respectively, without COE or options.

Porsche Cayenne GTS Coupe



Porsche’s GTS models are the ‘Golidlocks’ of their respective model ranges: More power and handling capabilities than the standard models, but not as expensive, powerful, or (in some cases) sheer OTT than the Turbo and GT models.

The Cayenne lineup now comprises of, in order of increasing performance and cost, : Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne GTS, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid.

The new twin-turbo, 4.0-litre V8 makes 460hp and 620Nm of torque – 20hp and 20Nm more than the previous model– and is matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission, with all-wheel drive.

With the optional Sport Chrono package, the 0-100-km/h time is now 4.5 seconds for both models, a significant 0.6-seconds quicker than before, with a 270km/h top speed. Without the Sport Chrono pack (S$4,457), it’s 0-100km/h in 4.7 seconds, and you don’t get the mode selector on the steering wheel, nor the additional Sport Plus mode.

Efficiency is identical for both cars,  with an average of 11.3L/100km and 257g/km of CO2.

The typical GTS treatment is found on both cars: On the outside, Smoked head and taillights, the extensive use of black accents (air intakes, window trims, quad tailpipes, logos), 21-inch black RS Spyder Design wheels. 

On the inside: Dark Alcantara on the headliner, seat panels, console armrest and doors. Front sport seats and GTS logos (head rest, rev counter, door sills). 

Cayenne GTS Coupe has a special exhaust option

The Coupe gets a slightly spicier choice with the Lightweight Sports Package (S$33,994). This adds yummy carbonfibre bits all over the car – the lightweight roof, carbon interior trim, and rear exhaust surround. The latter also wraps around the new sports exhaust system with centre-mount tailpipes and black tips. The steering wheel gets an Alcantara covering, the wheels get upsized to 22-inch GT Design wheels. 

GTS models usually are quite cost effective with their standard equipment offering, and the Cayenne GTSs are no different: There’s an active suspension with a sportier 20mm lower setup (aka PASM), and Porsche’s torque vectoring to enable you to rip around corners quicker, plus upsized brake callipers in red.

But it wouldn’t be a Porsche if you couldn’t add your own ticks to the option list: There’s the dynamic roll bar Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC, S$13,317), all-wheel steering (S$8,328), adaptive air suspension (S$8,694). You can see all that in action with Porsche Singapore’s configurator.
