The new Cayenne GTS announces its outstanding sporting character in its very name. These three letters hark back to the famous 904 Carrera GTS of 1963. In 2007, the Cayenne GTS became the first Porsche of the modern era to revive the acronym that has since adorned especially sporty Porsche models.

It is not only the name of the Cayenne GTS that resonates. The 3.6-litre V6 bi-turbo engine is the performance-oriented enhancement presented in the Cayenne S. Its efficiency is increased and it delivers improved performance: compared to the previous naturally aspirated V8 engine, power output rises by 20 hp to 440 hp and torque by 63 lb. ft. to 443 lb. ft., while fuel consumption is of only 10.4 L/100 km on the highway according to Transport Canada. The Cayenne GTS accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds (5.1 with the optional Sport Chrono package) and achieves a top speed of 262 km/h. A sport exhaust system is standard, which provides the familiarly meaty GTS sound.

The standard air suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) damping system is sport-tuned, allowing the vehicle to sit 20 mm lower. Further standard features include Cayenne Turbo brakes with 390-mm front discs and 358 mm rears with red calipers.

Other design attributes confer the Cayenne GTS a sporty appearance. The Cayenne Turbo nose section with large air intakes, the Sport Design package, including more contoured side sills and wheel arch extensions are all standard. The latter, like the roof spoiler and lower rear of the vehicle, are body coloured. Black is omnipresent and provides some striking contrasts: all lettering is black, as are the 20-inch RS Spyder design wheels, exhaust tailpipes, bi-xenon headlights' inner apertures. You also find darkened LED taillights and GTS lettering now appears on the front doors.

The sporting character continues inside. Eight-way electrically adjustable sport seats in leather/Alcantara upholstery, with GTS-emblazoned headrests are standard. Alcantara is the predominant upholstery material used inside the car. The optional interior GTS package is available in carmine red or rhodium silver with rev counter face, decorative stitching, headrest lettering, and seat belts in contrasting colour.

The Cayenne GTS had celebrated its world premiere this past November at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. Now arriving at Canadian dealerships, the 2016 Cayenne GTS is offered starting at $108,200.

Porsche Cars Canada was formed as an independent subsidiary in April 2008. The company employs a team of 29 in sales, aftersales, finance, marketing, and public relations. Last calendar year, Porsche sold a record 4,933 units in Canada, up 34% compared to 2013.
