The refreshed Porsche Cayenne lineup is almost complete, and the GTS has just arrived as the returning sweet spot among the SUV's expansive variety of trims. Just like before, it does away with the hybrid tech found on the flagship models and keeps its regular twin-turbo V8, though it has been retuned to make a bit more power.




As part of its 2025 refresh, the Cayenne GTS gains exactly 40 horsepower and 30 lb-ft of torque, which tallies up to a new total of 493 hp and 487 lb-ft. Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph takes 4.2 seconds, before the performance SUV eventually tops out at 171 mph. An eight-speed automatic transmission sends power to all four wheels, and Porsche says the Sport and Sport Plus drive modes enable faster gear changes.


While the engine bay doesn't get any hybrid tech from the range-topping Turbo GT, the suspension does adopt a few of that model's upgrades. New front axle pivot bearings lifted from the Turbo GT allow for sharper steering, and the GTS also gains an exclusive standard air suspension that can achieve a ride height just under a half of an inch lower than standard Cayenne models. Active roll stabilization is also available as an option. Topping off the Turbo GT-inspired changes is a separate water-cooling circuit for the SUV's all-wheel drive system.



Elsewhere, the coupe body style now features an adaptive rear spoiler and an optional exhaust package with center-mounted tips. There are also three weight-saving packages available to shave off a up to 55 pounds, though that isn't much for the SUV's hefty curb weight of almost 5,000 pounds.


From the outside, the 2025 Cayenne GTS models are distinguished by their larger intakes, smoked lights, red brake calipers, and the newly-standard Sport Design Package that adds a black finish for some of the exterior elements. Porsche also replaced the old black exhaust tips with a set of more stylish dark bronze ones, and the performance SUV now rides on 21-inch RS Spyder Design wheels.



Stepping inside, Race Tex microfiber upholstery is applied on the headliner, steering wheel, door cards, and the center portions of the eight-way power adjustable seats. Aside from the standard black color, buyers can also opt for Slate Grey or Carmine Red upholstery.


The Cayenne GTS and Cayenne GTS Coupe will begin appearing on dealer lots this fall, with order books set to open soon. The standard SUV body style demands $126,895 to start, while the coupe version raises the bar to $131,495. However, it's quite a bargain compared to the $197,950 Turbo GT hybrid.
