The Cayenne Turbo GT introduced in 2021 immediately set standards in its segment with its uncompromising set-up for maximum longitudinal and lateral performance. Like no other vehicle, the Cayenne Turbo GT combines the spaciousness and practicality of an SUV with track-worthy handling. The new Cayenne Turbo GT is now even more powerful, faster and more dynamic than its predecessor. Due to current emission regulations, it is not offered in the markets of Europe, Japan, Hong Kong, India, Taiwan and Singapore, among others.
With the model change, Porsche has enhanced the performance of the Cayenne Turbo GT: its 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine now boasts an output of 485 kW (659 PS) – 14 kW (19 PS) more than before. With this performance boost, it sprints to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and posts a top speed of 305 km/h. Modifications to the pistons, connecting rods, crankshaft and timing chain drive equip the high-performance engine for heavy loads on and off the track. An exclusive sports exhaust system made of titanium with centrally positioned tailpipes creates an exhilarating engine sound that sets the Turbo GT apart from the other Cayenne models.
A widened track and an increased camber on the front axle of the Cayenne Turbo GT deliver particularly dynamic cornering performance. The standard adaptive two-chamber air suspension including PASM with two-valve technology, sports tuning and a 15-millimetre-lower body lowers the centre of gravity of what is currently the most powerful Porsche Cayenne. The Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB), Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) and rear-axle steering are also part of the model’s standard equipment.
The new Cayenne Turbo GT has a particularly confident and dynamic look. Its exclusive 22-inch GT Design wheels come painted in Neodyme as standard. The model-specific front end with enlarged cooling air intakes, on the other hand, comes in matt Black. The rear apron, the wheel arches and the ‘PORSCHE’ and ‘Turbo GT’ logos on the rear of the vehicle also feature a matching matt Black. Porsche has designed the lightweight roof, the distinctive diffuser trim and the sideplates on the rear spoiler in Carbon. The standard elements of Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA) with an adaptive spoiler and enlarged spoiler lip optimise the aerodynamics of the Cayenne Turbo GT and thus improve its performance and efficiency. The interior of the new Turbo GT offers electrically adjustable eight-way sports seats with integrated headrests in front, memory package and perforated seat centres in Race-Tex, and the rear sports seat system with matching upholstery. The standard GT interior package ups its sporty appearance with contrasting stitching in Arctic Grey or Deep Sea Blue. The multifunction sports steering wheel with Race-Tex rim comes standard with a centre top marking in Racing Yellow.
The Cayenne Turbo GT also benefits from the visual and functional upgrades to the body and interior, such as the new Porsche Driver Experience. The Cayenne Turbo GT also impresses with an even more extensive standard equipment package. It comes with the new HD-Matrix LED Headlights, Lane Keeping Assist including road sign recognition, the proactive passenger protection including reversible seatbelt pre-tensioner in the front, ambient lighting and the smartphone compartment with wireless charging at up to 15 watts as standard features. In specific markets, Porsche Entry and Lane Change Assist (USA) and Active Parking Assistance including Surround View (China) are also available.
