Porsche Cayenne

Porsche means one thing for sure: uniqueness. Every car they manufacture is different from any other cars existent on the market. Creating a car signifies true art, each one of them having an own story, an own ideal and special characteristics. The German brand is so well developed that can satisfy each client, no matter the car version he prefers. The company has just revealed the Porsche Cayenne and its GTS version. Both vehicles will publicly debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The Porsche Cayenne represents the entry level version of the model. The vehicle is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that generates 300 PS (220 kW). The unit works together with a new eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission which allows the CUV to sprint from 0-100 km/h in 7.7 seconds before reaching 230 km/h (143 mph). It is also equipped with an engine start/stop system which reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 0.7 l/100 km and 21 g/km, respectively.

Well, things are a bit different when it comes to the Porsche Cayenne GTS. It certainly is a powerful vehicle, being powered by a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 engine that can develop 440 PS (323 kW) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque. This means an increase of 20 PS (14 kW) and 85 Nm (62 lb-ft). Because of the additional power, the crossover runs the 0-100 km/h in 5.2 seconds or 5.1 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package. It is able to reach a maximum speed of 262 km/h (162 mph).

The sporty Porsche Cayene GTS features extended wheel arches and restyled side skirts. The car is also equipped with tinted lighting units, a 20-24mm reduced ride height and a set of 20-inch alloy wheels. Other important elements include a sports exhaust system, high-performance brakes, additional body-color accents and a Porsche Active Suspension Management system. Starting February 2015, both versions will be available in Germany. The entry level begins at €65,427 while the GTS is priced from €98,152.
