Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT design
Even though most versions of the Porsche Cayenne are offered as a conventional-looking SUV and a sleeker ‘Coupe’, you can only have the Turbo GT as the latter.
Visual changes over the standard car include a model-specific front bumper with a larger lip and bigger air intakes.
Black wheel arch extensions have been fitted, along with a standard-fit carbon fibre roof and 22-inch alloy wheels.
The active rear spoiler has been given a 25mm larger lip to it as well, said to improve downforce by 40kg.
Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT interior and infotainment
It’s not quite a stripped-out, track-ready affair inside the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT but it does get some racier touches over the rest of the range.
For example, there’s more Alcantara throughout as standard plus a new steering wheel with a yellow centre marker.
Its infotainment system now supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for the first time on the SUV too.
Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT engine
Here it produces 640hp and 850Nm, a 90hp and 80Nm increase respectively. That power is sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The result? This new Cayenne Turbo GT will do 0-60mph in 3.3 seconds and hit 186mph. That makes it the fastest Cayenne built to date.
Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT price and release date
Orders are now being taken for the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, with prices starting from £143,910.
Get your name down now and you can expect to get the keys later in autumn.
