New Porsche Cayenne Coupe GTS set to join range

Porsche’s coupe-SUV line-up will expand thanks to 453bhp V8 model

  • GTS model to sit in-between S and Turbo S versions
  • Will get exclusive styling touches
  • Due on sale later in the year

The Porsche Cayenne Coupe GTS will arrive later this year, and spy photographers have recently captured a test car undergoing winter testing. The GTS will be one of the most powerful petrol versions of the Cayenne Coupe.

The Cayenne Coupe rivals other style-focused SUVs, including the BMW X6, Audi Q8 and Mercedes GLE Coupe. The car starts at just over £62,000 but the high-spec GTS version is likely to command close to £90,000, between the £74,000 Cayenne Coupe S and £105,000 Turbo.

It’ll occupy the gulf between those two models in terms of power, too. It’s expected that the Cayenne Coupe GTS will get the same engine as the Porsche Panamera GTS: a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine with 453bhp. It’s the same engine in the Turbo S but detuned from that car’s 542bhp.

Porsche hasn’t stuck any camouflage on this development model, so we can see the styling touches that mark the GTS out from the rest of the range. The front end features a slightly more aggressive bumper design and a new skid plate, while the rear gets a redesigned diffuser and two large centre-mounted exhaust pipes. It’ll also get exclusive alloy wheels, badging and black exterior trim.

With the GTS positioned as one of the sportier models in the range, it should get a few chassis tweaks too. Lower, stiffer suspension and upgraded brakes are likely to be fitted as standard, while active anti-roll bars and torque vectoring hardware will be on the options list.

It’s unlikely that you’ll need to head into the options list for many features, as GTS models are typically very well-equipped. In keeping with other GTS cars, Porsche will include more supportive sports seats, suede-like upholstery, exclusive door plates and aluminium finishers, along with some of the company’s best tech and driver assistance systems.
