New Cayenne GTS arrives at Porsche Centre Doha

From today, the new Porsche Cayenne GTS is available at Porsche Centre Doha, Al Boraq Automobiles Co, w.l.l. at its showroom in Medina Centrale, The Pearl-Qatar, marking the return of V8 power to deliver the ultimate satisfaction in SUV driving performance. With the Cayenne GTS and Cayenne GTS Coupé, Porsche is supplementing its SUV line-up with two new models that are more powerful, more efficient and more emotive.

The new Cayenne GTS features a 460 PS (338 kW), four-litre, biturbo V8 that delivers 620 Nm of torque in place of the 3.6-litre, V6 biturbo engine from its predecessor and is accompanied by a lowered, performance-oriented chassis and a unique design with enhanced equipment. When fitted with the Sport Chrono package, the new Cayenne GTS accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 270 km/h.

Commenting on the launch, Salman Jassem Al Darwish, Chairman and CEO of Porsche Centre Doha said: “The Cayenne GTS represents the pinnacle of SUVs and therefore it is only fitting that it features our flagship, four-litre V8 biturbo engine with a powerful sound loved by many enthusiasts here in Qatar.”

Powerful and emotive: V8 engine with new sports exhaust systems

With the Porsche-developed four-litre, V8, biturbo engine, the new GTS delivers 20 PS (14 kW) and 20 Nm more than its predecessor. This leads to significantly improved performance, lowering the standard sprint from zero to 100 km/h by 0.6 seconds with the Sport Chrono package while its top speed has been increased by eight km/h. The new engine features adaptive cylinder control, direct petrol injection with central injector position and an intelligently designed thermal management system, paired to Porsche’s Tiptronic S, eight-speed automatic transmission. Complementing the drivetrain is an exhaust system with its tailpipes located at the outer edges of the rear to produce a rich, sporty sound with a unique character.

Offered exclusively in combination with the optional Lightweight Sports Package on the Cayenne GTS Coupé is the newly developed high frequency-tuned sports exhaust system, featuring two centrally positioned oval tailpipes.

20 millimetres lower with dynamic damper control

Fitted with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) for active and sporty damper control, the new Cayenne GTS sits 20mm lower on its steel-spring suspension and includes Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) as standard. In combination with its 21-inch RS Spyder Design wheels, the large grey cast iron brakes (390 x 38 mm at the front, 358 x 28 mm at the rear) and red brake callipers provides exceptional stopping power to match the agility of a true sports entrant in the SUV segment. Enhanced braking performance is available as an option with the choice of the Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB) with tungsten carbide coating or the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB). Further options include 10mm lower, three-chamber air suspension, rear-axle steering and the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) active roll stabilisation system.

Sport Design package and characteristic GTS accents as standard

The Cayenne GTS has a unique and exclusive appearance courtesy of numerous accents in Black that supplement the standard Sport Design package. Standard features include satin-gloss, Black, 21-inch, RS Spyder Design wheels, while the LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and the LED tail light bar are also dark-tinted. The front air intakes, side window trims, tailpipes of the sports exhaust system and Porsche logos on the rear are also in Black.

High-quality materials such as Alcantara® on the rooflining, seat centre panels, centre console armrests and doors, together with dark-brushed aluminium make it possible to see and feel the sporty, yet elegant characteristics of the Cayenne GTS interior. Standard eight-way sports seats exclusively reserved for the new GTS offers optimal support for dynamic cornering due to the increased height of the side bolsters while GTS logos can be found on the front doors, door entry sills, rev counter and head restraints. Numerous personalisation options include the GTS interior package featuring additional colour accents in Carmine Red or Crayon for items such as decorative stitching.
