      ATLANTA – April 10, 2012 – Porsche is set to unveil the second-generation Cayenne GTS at the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, also known as Auto China, on April 24, 2012. Based on the Cayenne S, this new model is equipped with 20 additional horsepower, a 20 mm lower ride height and a lower final drive ratio for improved driving dynamics.

      The latest Cayenne transmits power from its 420 hp V8 to an active All-Wheel-Drive system coupled to an eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission with integrated Auto Start Stop function. The specially tuned engine and transmission combination enable the Cayenne GTS to sprint from a standing start to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds and to achieve a top-track-speed of 162 mph.

      The Cayenne GTS is recognizable from the outside by its high-gloss black trim, prominent side skirts and wider wheel arches as well as the hood and front fascia from the Cayenne Turbo. 20-inch RS Spyder wheels with a unique offset for the GTS are standard. Two new colors are available for the Cayenne GTS; Peridot Metallic and Carmine Red. A sport exhaust system with matte black twin tailpipes is standard.

      Inside, the Cayenne GTS features exclusive GTS eight-way adjustable front sports seats with Alcantara accents. For the first time in the Cayenne, a new Sport Chrono package is now available to monitor the improved performance offered by the GTS model. Additionally, a Sound Symposer channels authentic engine intake sounds into the cabin.

      The 2013 Cayenne GTS will go on sale in the U.S. in August 2012, with a base MSRP of $82,050, not including a $975 delivery charge.

      I want to like this, but Porsche is choosing the ugliest colors for its press photos lately. There's a similar hideous green on the new 911, and then that weird gold/brown/yellow for the otherwise gorgeous Boxster.

      Meh, at least they aren't silver/grey/black.

      Love the red one.

      Any word on a manual version? That was one of the best parts about the last GTS.

      The yellow on the Boxster actually looks pretty good in person, but tampaSi did comment that it looked kind of like an Easter egg.

      meh. At 82K, is it that much of a stretch for those who can afford the vehicle to buy the $107K Cayenne Turbo instead?

      Holy crap, that green is awesome. Overall the whole thing looks kickass. It's nice to see a German vehicle in an actual color.

      I'll take one.

      You could say the same about the original Cayenne GTS, or the ensuing Panamera GTS and 911 Carrera GTS. If there weren't buyers out there for them, I'm not sure they would do those editions.

      There's certainly a market out there for "sporty" models in the lineup without going all-out racecar (GT3, GT3 RS, GT2) or over-the-top power/luxury (Turbo).

      P.S. I do like that red.

      Nice, but needs about $50K in mod money.

      I'm sure it's overall much faster and better than the last model, but I'll miss that the last one came with a 6MT.

      Not bad, but $83k before adding a few options here and there?....No thanks.

      For the 14' model year the GC SRT8 is getting an 8spd Auto and apparently there is a faster/performance version becoming available...supercharged, bigger brakes, etc.

      Maybe they're trying to get us Ravenna Green 914 drivers to buy one in that color.

      I've always like the Cayenne. This generation and this model, very impressive, if not costly.

      Exactly, Porsche has never done subtle. I don't care for the tail of the new Cayenne GTS, but the rest is pretty sweet for an SUV. The Cayenne can move in scary ways for such a tall vehicle...

      Why is that such a ludicrous proposition? Having driven the last gen GTS w/ 6MT it would be at the top of my list should I a) have a need for a SUV & b) have the money for it.

      It's just another one of those pointless comments such as "bring the Fiat 500 and I'll buy it instantly," or "how can the M5 be offered without a stick shift??!>!"

      I wasn't quoting you so not quite sure where you got the idea I was speaking to you...Also, it's definitely not ludicrous..... much the same as me saying I'm going to buy a Boeing BBJ should I a) have a need for a corporate jet & b) have the money for it.

      Hey, I'm the first to admit that my opinion doesn't matter since I'm not a likely buyer, but I loved the idea that a high performance SUV could be had with a 6MT. To this day, if I had $50k to spend on one, the last gen GTS with a 6MT would be it.
