India has announced that the Cayenne Turbo GT will now be available in the
country. The Turbo GT is available exclusively as a four-seater Coupé. Prices
for the model start at Rs 25,708,000 (Ex-Showroom).
new Cayenne Turbo GT’s 640 PS four-litre biturbo V8, with 90 PS more than the
Cayenne Turbo Coupé and maximum torque of 850 Nm (an increase of 80 Nm), the
0-100 km/h sprint is reduced to 3.3 seconds (0.6 s less) and top speed is now
300 km/h (an increase of 14 km/h).
even sportier lines and available exclusively as a four-seater Coupé, the
Cayenne Turbo GT comes with all available chassis systems fitted as standard
and performance tyres developed specially for this model. The powertrain and
chassis also have a unique set-up specifically tuned for the Cayenne Turbo GT.
The result is a harmonious overall concept with superb racetrack capability.
This has been proven by Porsche test driver Lars Kern, who lapped the 20.832 km
Nürburgring Nordschleife with the Cayenne Turbo GT in a time of 7:38.9 minutes,
setting a new official SUV record.
to the Cayenne Turbo Coupé, the Turbo GT rides up to 17 millimetres lower.
Based on this, both the passive chassis components and active control systems
have been re-engineered and optimised for handling and performance. They also
feature specific calibration to guarantee perfect interaction between them. As
an example, the rigidity of the three-chamber air suspension has been increased
by up to 15 per cent, and the damper characteristics of the Porsche Active
Suspension Management (PASM) as well as the application of the Power Steering
Plus and rear-axle steering have also been adapted.
Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) active roll stabilisation system now
operates with performance-oriented control software. The result is even better
roll stability and road holding, as well as more precise turn-in behaviour at
higher cornering speeds. In line with this, the Porsche Torque Vectoring system
allows higher torque bias ratios. The comprehensively optimised front axle also
improves handling. Compared to the Turbo Coupé, its front wheels are an inch
wider and negative camber has been increased by 0.45 degrees to give the new
22-inch Pirelli P Zero Corsa performance tyres, specially developed for the
Turbo GT, a larger contact patch. Braking duties are performed by the
standard-fit Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) system.
Tiptronic S and titanium sports exhaust system
Cayenne Turbo GT’s biturbo engine is currently Porsche’s most powerful eight cylinder
unit. The most extensive upgrades were carried out in the areas of the
crankshaft drive, turbocharger, direct fuel injection, induction system and
intercooler. The V8 of the Turbo GT differs from that of the Turbo Coupé in
fundamental elements such as its crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, timing
chain drive and torsional vibration dampers. Given the increase in power to 640
PS, these components have been designed for higher peak loads and improved
driving dynamics. The faster-shifting eight-speed Tiptronic S and the Porsche
Traction Management (PTM) system have also been modified. There is also
additional water cooling for the transfer case. The standard sports exhaust
system, with its central tailpipes, is unique to the Cayenne Turbo GT. From the
middle of the vehicle, the exhaust system, including the rear silencer, is made
from lightweight and particularly heat-resistant titanium. An additional weight
saving is achieved through the omission of the centre silencer.
lots of carbon on the exterior, lots of Alcantara in the interior
available with paintwork in the new Arctic Grey colour, the Cayenne Turbo GT
underlines its exceptional athleticism through the outstanding features of its
progressive design. These include a GT-specific front apron with striking
spoiler lip and enlarged side cooling air intakes, which create a unique front
view. A contoured carbon roof and black wheel arch extensions, together with
22-inch GT Design wheels in Neodyme, dominate its side view. The carbon side
plates fitted lengthwise to the roof spoiler are GT-specific, as is the
adaptively extendable rear spoiler’s lip, which is 25 mm larger than that
fitted to the Turbo. This increases downforce at the car’s top speed by up to
40 kilograms. The rear view is rounded off by a striking diffuser panel made of
Debut in the Turbo GT: new infotainment
system for the Cayenne
sporty character of the Cayenne Turbo GT is highlighted by the high-quality
standard equipment and extended Alcantara features of its interior. Eight-way
sport seats in the front and a sport rear seat system with two seats are
standard. They each come GT-specific with perforated seat centre panels in
Alcantara, contrast accents in Neodyme or Arctic Grey and ‘turbo GT’ lettering
on their headrests. As is expected on Porsche’s sports cars, the multifunction
sports steering wheel features a yellow 12 o’clock marking. Depending on the
specified trim, select accent strips are finished in matt Black.
the Turbo GT, the next-generation Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system
is launched onto the market with improved performance, a new user interface and
new operating logic in the Cayenne. As before, PCM 6.0 is fully compatible with
Apple CarPlay but now also allows for in-depth integration of Apple Music and
Apple Podcasts. In addition, the infotainment system now also includes Android
Auto, which means that all popular smart phones can now be integrated.
