If we wish to achieve excellence in performance, we need an outstanding foundation to rely on. And the right team. There is room for both in the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT. The hunt for best times can begin. In a group of four.
The chassis, chassis systems and brake system of the Cayenne Turbo GT are designed for maximum on-road performance — including the performance tires.
Makes starting off a flying start: the 4.0 liter V8 twin-turbo engine with 650 hp and a max. torque of 626 lb.-ft. unleashes pure power. Together with the 8-speed Tiptronic S and the specially balanced chassis systems, it enables the Cayenne Turbo GT to excel in longitudinal and lateral acceleration.
The titanium sport exhaust system with central tailpipes, exclusive to the Cayenne Turbo GT, does not take away from the punchy V8 sound — but its lightweight metal design does reduce the vehicle weight.
The HD matrix LED headlights react to every driving situation with light distribution adapted to the situation. From the glare-free automatic high beam, to the dynamic cornering light that adapts to the driving modes.
The 22-inch forged aluminum wheels in GT Design with Turbo GT-specific wheel width on the front axle in combination with the performance tires provide the foundation for an excellent level of performance. They optimize handling and braking distance — and are also suitable for use on the circuit.
The carbon rear diffuser, with its pronounced ribs, reinforces the impression of agile performance meeting sporty expressiveness in the Cayenne Turbo GT.
Typically Porsche driver-orientated in the style of the new Porsche Driver Experience: The digital instrument cluster with a 12.65-inch curved display places the displays concisely in the field of vision. Various display formats can be selected: typical round instruments, map section in the central round instrument, full area navigation map, reduced view and the optional view with Night Vision Assist in the center.
The multifunction sport steering wheel in Race-Tex has a 12 o'clock marking in Racing Yellow and — depending on the GT interior package selected — contrasting stitching in Deep Sea Blue or Arctic Gray. A special feature of the Cayenne Turbo GT: the Sport Response button in Red.
Depending on the GT interior package selected, the front sport seats have an embroidered "Turbo GT" model logo in Deep Sea Blue or Arctic Gray on the headrests. With raised side bolsters and integrated headrests, the sport seats combine dynamic driving and excellent seat comfort. Additionally, they adapt to the body shape with the help of electrical adjustment options (8-way). The perforated seat centers in Race-Tex offer first-class seating.
Burmester® 3D High-End Surround Sound System with a total output of 1,455 watts and 21 individually controlled loudspeakers including a 25cm/400-watt active subwoofer with class D amplifier, two-way center system and Auro 3D® technology for a captivating, spatial and homogeneous acoustic pattern. Sophisticated high-end audio components, e.g. special ribbon tweeters (air motion transformers, AMT) and a total diaphragm surface area of more than 2,500cm2 enable precision playback even at very high sound levels. A wide selection of preset equalizers ensures a first-class audio experience, while a sound conditioner based on microphone technology adapts the sound sensitively and in real time to the driving situation. What's more, the Sound Enhancer® delivers improved audio quality and dynamics for compressed file formats such as MP3.
Radar- and video-based technology that monitors and automatically regulates the distance from the vehicle in front as required even down to a halt by means of the stop-and-go function (usable at 19+ mph). Additional functions: audible warning if too close; warning by active jolt of the brakes; strategic braking; visual and audible warning if pedestrians are detected within collision range.
Another feature of Porsche InnoDrive including Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is Active Lane Keep Assist. It combines ACC and Lane-Keeping functionality on major roads and highways. The system follows the line of traffic ahead and lane markings, within the limits of the system, and keeps the vehicle in the middle of the lane by continuous steering adjustments – even in congested conditions. Active Lane Keep Assist is beneficial to stress relief and greater comfort on long journeys.
The Auto Start Stop function brings the vehicle to a halt (subject to system limitations) if the driver fails to respond (e.g. due to health reasons). If the vehicle detects an absence of driver activity, it uses visual and audible warnings, a brief tightening of the seatbelt and if necessary a jolt of the brakes to attempt to prompt the driver to resume control of the vehicle. Should this be unsuccessful, after a moderate delay the vehicle will come to a halt in the lane, activate the hazard warning lights, and trigger a call to the emergency services.
