2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS, Cayenne GTS Coupé add performance to Porsche's mommymobile
Perhaps calling the Porsche Cayenne a mommymobile is a bit too far, but one can't help but notice the inherent practicality that comes with owning Porsche's largest SUV. Now, Porsche is upping the sport factor on the model, offering two new variants: the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS and the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS Coupé.
The SUV's heart is a 4.0-liter biturbo V8 that achieves 453 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque. The engine is pared with an eight-speed automatic transmission. It only comes with all-wheel drive.
The model can get to 62 mph from a stop in 4.5 seconds. Opting for the Sport Chrono package adds launch control and lowers the time it takes to reach 62 mph to 4.2 seconds. Top speed is 168 mph.
All these figures are an improvement on comparable last-gen models.
Porsche has given the SUV a lowered performance-oriented chassis, a unique design, and enhanced equipment. At the back is a high-frequency tuned sports exhaust system that is designed to provide a richer burble out the centrally located (Cayenne GTS and Turbo Coupés only as part of the Lightweight Sports Package) twin oval tailpipes.
The GTS models feature a standard steel-spring suspension that lowers the car by 20 millimetres. It rides on standard satin-gloss black RS Spyder Design 21-inch wheels. Of course, there are red brake calipers.A variety of brakes are available.
Porsche has given the model a standard Sport Design package which adds blacked out elements to the model including tinted LED headlights and taillight bar as well as black front air intakes, side window trims, tailpipes of the sports exhaust system, and badging.
The model's cabin is outfitted in Alcantara and accented with brushed aluminum. Standards eight-way sports seats are up front.GTS logos can be found on the front doors, door entry sills, rev counter and head restraints. Buyers can option up to include personalization options adding Carmine Red or Crayon-colored accents to the interior.
The new Porsche Cayenne GTS models are available to order now and will be in dealerships starting in July.
