Porsche Reveals 631 hp 2022 Cayenne Turbo GT

Monster Cayenne is officially ready

  • Most powerful production Porsche V8

  • Holds SUV Nurburgring record

The track-ready Cayenne finally has a name. Say hello to the 2022 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT. It’s the one that holds a Nurburgring record, is the sharpest of all Cayennes, and offers more power, upgraded interior, and a titanium exhaust.

631 hp from the 4.0L twin-turbo V8 that sits under the hood. It’s the most powerful V8 Porsche has ever made, a whopping 90 hp more than the standard Turbo. Its 626 lb-ft is 59 torques more than the standard Turbo Coupe, and while it might not quite match the e-Hybrid’s 670, it also doesn’t have all of that model’s extra batteries and motor.

A quicker-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission is fitted and the traction management system has been upgraded. This one’s putting out so much shove that Porsche has added more water cooling for the transfer cars. It means 0-100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds and a top speed 14 km/h faster at an even 300 km/h.

The chassis is 17 mm lower, with a redesign of nearly every suspension component contributing to making the SUV sharper than before. Like a 15-percent more rigid air suspension, revised active dampers, and rear-wheel steering tweaks.

Porsche says it all leads to more stability and better road holding along with more precise responses. More front camber helps keep the specially-designed 22-inch Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires flat on the pavement in the turns, and ceramic composite brakes come standard.

Lastly, and one of the most obvious changes, is the exhaust. A titanium system from the middle of the vehicle back that exits through two spaced out but center mount tailpipes. Porsche left out the center muffler, saying it was for “weight saving” but we’re guessing it also lets the GT roar.

The body kit includes a new front apron with a larger spoiler and cooling air intakes. Black wheel arch extensions and GT Design wheels make up the side view, and there is a larger adaptive rear spoiler fitted.

Inside, the 2022 Porsche Cayenne GT gets even more Alcantara with sport front seats and a two-seater rear sport seat system. The perforated seat panel is finished in Neodyme or Arctic Grey and has Turbo GT lettering. Like all of Porsche’s GTs, it has a center stripe on the steering wheel.

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT is available to order now, starting from just over $182,000 US. Does that make it overpriced compared with the BMW X6 M and Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S, or a deal next to the Lamborghini Urus? that’s up to you.
