New Porsche Cayenne GTS unveiled

The 2012 Porsche Cayenne GTS has been revealed ahead of the Beijing motor show later this month.

It will cost from 67,147 when it goes on sale in July, and will sit between the Cayenne S and Turbo models.

The GTS uses a 414bhp version of the 4.8-litre V8 petrol from the Cayenne S. This blasts it from 0-62mph in just 5.7 seconds 0.2 seconds quicker than the S while top speed is up by 2mph to 162mph. Average economy is improved from 26.9mpg to 26.4mpg.

The Cayenne GTS has a tweaked chassis to give sportier handling, with stiffer suspension and a ride height that's been dropped by 24mm.

The exterior adopts styling cues from the Turbo model, including wider wheelarches and sideskirts, a twin-wing roof spoiler and high-gloss black trim.

The interior has bespoke leather-and-Alcantara sports front seats with eight-way adjustment, and steering wheel-mounted paddle-shifters. The GTS also comes with a sports exhaust system and Bi-xenon headlamps.
