The best way to experience something is up close. That’s why the Cayenne GTS brings you into closer contact with the road. Its steel spring suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) is lowered by 24 mm. For a sportier setup, a more direct driving experience and breathtaking performance.
Thanks to a particularly wide ratio spread, the 8-speed Tiptronic S lowers fuel consumption – and increases comfort and dynamic agility. The low engine speeds in the higher gears reduce the noise level inside the vehicle. The 8-speed Tiptronic S shifts gear automatically and adapts to your individual driving style.
Other energy-saving technologies include the ability to coast along in certain situations, e.g. when you take your foot off the accelerator pedal to reduce your speed slowly. The engine is decoupled from the transmission and slowed to idle speed to prevent deceleration caused by engine braking.
Many people dedicate themselves to moving forward, but few leave their mark. Many are full of enthusiasm, but few inspire it in others. How do you recognize the few? Sometimes at first glance. The prowess of the Cayenne SUV is clearly reflected in the design: the front and rear sections are now sharper and even more sophisticated. The bonnet, front wings, main headlights and air intakes lend the car even greater presence. It is impressively athletic and muscular.
The wheels on the Cayenne models are designed for sports performance. Optional for all models, we offer a selection of wheels in a range of sizes up to 21 inches. These include the 21-inch 911 Turbo Design wheel with wheel arch extension, which brings both performance and refinement to the road.
LED technology is used for all functions on the newly designed rear light modules. For an ultrafast response and greater luminance. The high-level third brake light is integrated into the roof spoiler.
Ensuring a superb cinematic experience at the rear, the new Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment Plus has been specially developed to meet the high requirements inside a Porsche. Two high-resolution 10.1-inch TFT touchscreen color displays mounted in the backrests of the front seats, with integrated DVD drive, two USB slots, one SD card slot, an HDMI interface and a 32 GB internal flash memory, offer you all manner of entertainment options.
For added comfort, the seats are available with optional ventilation, even in the rear. The rear bench is based on the same design as the front comfort or sports seats and offers generous space for up to three adult passengers. For added practicality, the bench features fore/aft adjustment of 160 mm and a 40/20/40 split-folding facility. The flexible centre section folds down to create a load-through facility for longer items such as the optional ski bag. It also features a folding armrest. The process is quite simple: unlock and fold down. The rear seat backrest can be adjusted by up to 6 degrees: 3 degrees forward of the starting position and 3 degrees back.
Motorsport. At your fingertips. In the truest sense of the word. The paddles enable fast, sporty and ergonomic gear changes. There are also additional multifunction controls for telephone, radio and on-board computer functions. Derived from the 918 Spyder super sports car, the steering wheel also comes with standard heating. In addition to sporting appeal, it also offers a high level of comfort.
Comfort also means having the important things at your fingertips when you need them. Which is why the Cayenne models offer a wide range of storage options. These include door storage compartments with bottle holders, storage pockets on the front seat backrests, a glove compartment cooled by the climate control system, a storage compartment in the center console and a handy drawer beneath both the driver’s and front passenger’s seat.
The system uses a radar sensor in the central air intake to monitor the road up to 650 feet ahead. If you approach another vehicle that is travelling slower than your selected cruising speed, the system slows the engine or gently applies the brakes. This continues until the distance that you have preset is maintained. If heavier braking is required, the driver has to actively intervene. When the vehicle in front decelerates further, adaptive cruise control will continue to reduce your speed – even down to a Stop. The integrated Stop & Go function automatically applies the brakes and then drives off again in congested traffic. The integrated Porsche Active Safe (PAS) visually and audibly warns the driver that intervention is necessary in the event of a sudden decrease in distance and briefly tugs on the brakes.
Surround View supplements the reversing camera with three additional high-resolution cameras – one in the front apron and one in each lower trim of the exterior mirrors. Based on the information supplied by all four cameras, the system generates a virtual bird’s eye view of the car and displays it on the PCM screen. This provides additional assistance to the driver when parking and maneuvring because even low-level obstacles at the front and side of the vehicle can be detected. It is also possible to switch between various camera views to improve visibility, for example at narrow exits.
