2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS Unveiled With A Ton Of Power And Style

Our three favorite Porsche letters added to the Cayenne lineup

  • New Cayenne GTS delivers 453 horsepower (460 PS)

  • Available in both Cayenne and Cayenne Coupé styles

  • Reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds


There are a lot of special number-letter combinations in the Porsche universe. GT2, GT3, 4S… And GTS. GTS models are the bridge to the high-performance Turbo models in a Porsche lineup and bring with them sportier styling, more agressive exhaust notes, and plenty of power. The new 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS is no exception.

Unveiled today, the new Cayenne and Cayenne Coupé GTS models have all of the traditional GTS bits. Body color cladding courtesy of a standard Sport Design package, blacked out exhaust tips, higher top speed than the Cayenne S, Alcantara trim on the seats and steering wheel, and of course more power. The new Cayenne GTS delivers 453 horsepower (460 PS) from a twin-turbo, 4.0-litre V8. There’s also 457 pound-feet of torque. Top speed is set at 270 km/h (168 mph) and getting to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes just 4.5 seconds.

The Cayenne S has 434 horsepower, reaches 265 km/h (165 mph), and gets to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.2 seconds.

True to form, the Cayenne GTS will be loud in a good way. Porsche say there’s a special configuration for the sport exhaust systems to deliver what the automaker calls a “highly emotive aural experience”. The exhaust design is a sight to see with two large, centrally-located tips when the buyer chooses the Lightweight Sports Package.

A GTS model is supposed to handle better than its brothers. The 2021 Cayenne GTS will feature Porsche Active Suspension Management and Porsche Torque Vectoring as standard equipment.

Its ride height is lower by 20 mm. 21-inch Spyder RS wheels make the model immediately noticeable as do the large brakes behind them fitted with red calipers. Porsche ceramic brakes are available. Inside, there’s Alcantara and red stitching on the seats, the armrest, the dashboard and the steering wheel. You can also opt to have the stitching in Crayon.
