Home / Social media / Cars / The 2025 Porsche Cayenne GTS now has 368 kW on tap from a tweaked twin-turbocharged 4.0 litre V8.


The Porsche Cayenne was one of the first SUVs to come from a manufacturer that specialised in sportscars and supercars, over the last 22 years it’s been one of the most popular choices for those with the means to afford one. The GTS has always been a top choice in the lineup, and it’s just been updated for 2025. With GTS standing for Gran Turismo Sport, you can expect these German SUVs to be as fast as they are cool. Porsche Cayenne GTS models are easily recognisable thanks to their design that’s sportier than other models, differentiated by a few special design cues that include black ‘GTS’ lettering on the sides and rear of the car, a different front-end with larger air intakes, dark-tinted headlights and tail lights, and red brake callipers that stand out behind the anthracite 21-inch RS Spyder-design wheels, different side skirts, front inlays, side window trims and wheel arch extensions from the Sport Design package and come in High-Gloss Black. The sports exhaust system ends in new tailpipes, they were previously black but are now in a dark bronze finish. The GTS-specific chassis has a 10 mm lower ride height and has adaptive air suspension as standard, including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus). The various chassis components and control systems, such as Porsche Traction Management (PTM) and the optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), have been specifically designed for optimal on-road performance. The dual-valve damper technology offers improved responsiveness, while its dual-chamber air suspension affords the car a highly dynamic spring rate while also ensuring driver comfort. The front axle pivot bearings come from the Cayenne Turbo GT and they increase the negative camber of the wheels by 0.58 degrees resulting in agile cornering and exceptional handling dynamics.

The interior of the updated Cayenne GTS features a heated GT sports steering, and high-quality  Race-Tex material can also be found throughout the car - the suede-like fabric covers the roof lining, armrests and door panels, and also the centre panels of the 8-way adjustable sports seats. The side bolsters have been raised higher to offer even more lateral support when cornering, not usually a consideration in an SUV but this is a Porsche and that means you can chuck it around at speed. There are also two alternative interior packages specific to the GTS lineup, buyers can spec the cabin in either Carmine Red or Slate Grey Neo. The GTS also features the new Porsche Driver Experience with a curved digital instrument cluster as standard along with an optional passenger display, and for the audiophiles, there’s a brilliant Bose surround sound system and ambient lighting. The 2025 Porsche Cayenne GTS is a beast of an SUV thanks to that much-loved twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8, but it’s undergone an extensive technical revision that’s resulted in better efficiency and most importantly, more power. The rating has risen by a cool 30 kW and is now listed at 368 kW, the torque has also risen by 40 Nm and is now rated at a healthy 660 Nm. The powerplant is mated to a revised 8-speed Tiptronic S transmission that sends the power to all four wheels. The rework has notably improved driving performance with quicker response and shift times when using Sport and Sport Plus modes. As a result, the sizeable sports SUV can accelerate from a standstill to 100 km/h in as little as 4.4 seconds and can run on to a top speed of an immense 275 km/h. This latest incarnation of the Porsche Cayenne GTS is now available to order and deliveries will start when Europe hits the summer months around June.
