Porsche's multi-model car

Porsche's multi-model car

Let's start with the importance of the Porsche Cayenne to the German manufacturer, the Porsche Cayenne, other than it being the first SUV for Porsche and the best-selling one, also the car that saved Porsche from bankruptcy, in addition to being the car that changed the meaning of sports and luxury SUVs.

Porsche gives this car great importance and is available In 2023, with more than 14 trims, including the fastest SUV in the world at the Nürburgring circuit: the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, and also has the most powerful engine at Porsche, which comes on the hybrid coupe version of the Turbo S. You can play with these words as you like, and you will find a model with this name: Porsche, Cayenne, Coupe, Hybrid, Turbo... For every coupe and regular version, there is a Hybrid and Turbo trim...

Our trim today before the release of the new generation GTS and soon after the release of the new generation of the Porsche Cayenne is the Porsche Cayenne Coupe GTS, all of this is a bit confusing, let me simplify it in our drive experience.

Changes of the Cayenne GTS Vs the Cayenne

Changes of the Cayenne GTS Vs the Cayenne

Porsche always relies on issuing the GTS version, which mediates between the comfortable Porsche and the fast Porsche. In our case today, the Porsche Cayenne Coupe GTS comes with less power than the turbo GT, but more powerful than the 4S, and at the same time has high capabilities for track racing. And comes with amazing features between the power of the engine, the advanced suspension system, the steering system, the adrenaline, and the comfort of daily driving, and this is also reflected in the features and design of the exterior and interior.

The most important changes in the exterior of the Porsche Cayenne 2023

The most important changes in the exterior of the Porsche Cayenne 2023

As for the updates of the Porsche Cayenne Coupe GTS between 2023 and 2022, they are not much, as we are waiting for the GTS version on the 2024 generation, but always in the GTS version you find strong and sporty touches, the Porsche Cayenne GTS 2023 has a different bumper with more sporty features: large grille with hidden radar, black touches throughout the car from the outside, to indicate with a glance that it is a GTS, and of course, the GTS sticker on the side of the car, along with the 22-inch wheels and red calipers.

Being a coupe, you find the roof line curves at the back for a sporty scene, and also in the back you find an upper roof wing, as well as another smaller rear wing on top of the trunk equipped with a high-speed movement mechanism for more stability on turns and improved stopping ability, under it you find connected taillights and also the Cayenne GTS logo In black, finally reaching the four cannons in the rear bumper, the Exhaust sound is more than wonderful.

More comfort and technology in the interior of the Porsche Cayenne GTS 2023

More comfort and technology in the interior of the Porsche Cayenne GTS 2023

There are no changes in the cabin between 2022 and 2023, but there is always something that distinguishes the GTS from others, such as the GTS logo with carbon on the door seals and also stitched on the armrest, and because it is the Sport Chrono version, we find the famous Porsche chrono watch in the center of the front console, as well as the red happiness button on the sports steering wheel, which It gives you the madness of the V8 engine at full power for 20 seconds and of course the circular dial to change the drive modes.

The driver's seat is sporty and comfortable at the same time, due to the ability to adjust the seating positions as you wish, and as you look up you find an astonishing view in front of you with five dials, four digital that can display the information that interests you and one traditional to maintain the traditions of Porsche.

As for technology, daily comfort and even functionality, this is strongly present in the GTS 2023, starting with the new, larger screen and finally Android Auto wireless, in addition to a new and advanced infotainment system from Porsche that we're starting to see it in many of its new cars.

A panoramic roof extends to the rear to enjoy the luxury for all passengers.

The functionality in the front cabin is complemented by storage spaces everywhere, even in the driver’s seat you find a storage compartment, and not only that, but you also find good storage space in the trunk. To facilitate the loading process, you can electrically lower the car from the buttons in the trunk or raise it, as of course you can do that from the front screen, whether it is to load the items or to enter the car comfortably, or even to go on your off-road adventure, you can also control the exhaust sound from the screen.

Glory in terms of mechanical capabilities

Glory in terms of mechanical capabilities

Porsche Cayenne Coupe GTS, as we mentioned, has the capabilities of daily driving comfort, so we have achieved the first part of the glory.

The second aspect of glory, it is the mechanical capabilities. The car engine is a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged 480 horsepower and 530 Nm of torque.

After you set the car in sport+ mode and activate the launch control, you will feel the rush of the car going from zero to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and will not be able to reach the happiness red button on the steering wheel, as for the whole 3.9 seconds you will be glued to your seat, but if you decide to enter the track, prepare yourself to feel every turn with the suspension systems in the Porsche Cayenne GTS.
