German automobile manufacturer Porsche is once again bringing unmatched performance and striking appearance with the Cayenne GTS Coupé - more powerful and faster than ever before.
Boasting a robust 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine and a horsepower of 460 PS, the GTS can complete the dash from 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds in regular trim and 4.5 seconds using launch control. That is considerably quick, especially considering the GTS Coupe's 2145 kerb weight, making it a fast and powerful SUV compared to other counterparts in the market. The GTS Coupe is fitted with Porsche's Sport Exhaust system too, meaning you'll be able to hear it at low rpms, as well as when you drive with a full-throttle burst of speed. Agile and pleasingly flat even under harder acceleration, the large SUV is definitely suited for sports enthusiasts.

While it has dark exterior accents, its seats are finished in a mix of leather and Alcantara and highlighted with contrast stitching. With a premium Bose 14-speaker sound system and four-zone climate control, occupants can be surely comfy. The GTS' tech is worth noting too: four USB-C ports, wireless Apple CarPlay and device charging, and a 12.3-inch infotainment system with lots of configurability, such as individual driver settings, Wi-Fi hotspot and more. There are lots of little details to make it truly your own: optional adaptive sports seats, auto-dimming mirrors, particle/pollen filter with activated carbon filter, and more.
