The exterior of the Cayenne GTS models exhibits a distinctive Porsche aesthetic with black ‘GTS’ lettering and dark-tinted lighting elements, alongside new High-Gloss Black trim and redesigned 21-inch RS Spyder-design wheels. Inside, the cabin features a heated GT sports steering wheel and extensive use of the Race-Tex material, providing a luxurious touch and added comfort. The interior also offers customization options with GTS-specific packages in Carmine Red or Slate Grey Neo.

Adding to the allure of the new models, Porsche has integrated the latest technology enhancements from its 2023 Cayenne series. These include a curved digital instrument cluster, HD matrix LED headlights, a Bose® surround sound system, and ambient lighting, enhancing the overall driving experience. The Cayenne GTS Coupé further includes a fixed panoramic glass roof and an optional sports exhaust system for a more dynamic feel.

Both models are now available for order with deliveries expected to commence in Europe by Summer 2024.
