Porsche Enhanced Its Next-Gen Cayenne GTS SUV With A 458HP V8 Engine

The V6-powered Porsche Cayenne GTS was already a formidable model, fostering intense power and superb handling for an SUV of its size. Apparently, the company still found its overall output lackluster, and this year, they’ve opted to give the vehicle a much more pleasant twin-turbo V8, as well as an expansive suite of performance-oriented improvements.

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS arrives as a more desirable iteration of its predecessor, placing its already-attractive V6 engine aside for the introduction of the company’s 458-horsepower, 4.0L V8. With the inclusion of its new engine, the GTS has now secured an eye-popping 457 lb-ft of torque, complementing its overall performance with a Tiptronic S automatic transmission, an optional Sport Chrono Package, and an enhanced suspension system that makes use of Porsche’s proprietary Traction Management tech. As a result, the sporty SUV can now reach a top speed of around 162 miles-per-hour, allowing its accented Satin Black wheels, Alcantara upholstery, and updated Sport Exhaust to sing a tune of pure, unadulterated enthusiasm while scorching the roadway. Head to Porsche’s website to learn more about the 2021 Cayenne GTS, which is currently slated for retail at $107,300.
