A 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS with a Turbo-Look!
From the Outside (Part I)
Variations that could stun offered as the Cayenne lineup of vehicles and among which appears the recently added 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS that to Porsche guys it’s called a Turbo-Look and factory the 958-X52 Natur, or something inscrutable like that.
Six variations of that same crossover make perfect sense from a company that offers 18 variations of the 911 and promises that there are more variations of more versions coming and choosing one of these is making the right pick in the rank of mid-size luxury crossovers and SUVs.
At the beginning you will be overtaken by the high reedy noise resonating from this 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS. This, folks, is the sound of Porsche’s patented and highly precise hair-splitter at work. No other company has been able to create such a broad collection of highly specific models with such a relatively small pool of parts.
Actually this sound that sounds so fantastic is coupled with a look that drives you nuts. The 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS comes with the Turbo’s front fascia, LED-accented active headlights, body-color fender extensions and side skirts, red brake calipers, black window frames, and darkened LED taillights.
This 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS wears a body similar in style to the Cayenne Turbo, meaning a domed hood, blacked-out trim, and body-color fender extensions and side skirts. For those scrutinizing this 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS SUV should mention that the biplane rear spoiler design differs from the Turbo’s, the four exhaust tips are matte black instead of stainless steel, and the badge on the hatch says GTS.
Engine Performance and Ability
This front-engine, 4-wheel-drive, 5-passenger, 5-door wagon harnesses under the hood a 293 cu in, 4806 cc DOHC 32-valve V-8, aluminum block and heads, direct fuel injection engine that with the additional 20 horsepower and 11 pound-feet of torque is able to make 420 hp at 6500 rpm
and 380 lb-ft at 3500 rpm.
This 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS that has a wheelbase of 114.0 in, length of 190.8 in, width of 76.9 in, max width with mirrors of 78.7 in, overall height of 66.3 in, front track width of 65.2 in, rear track width of 65.7 in, minimum ground clearance of 8.5 in and curb weight of 5000 lb is loaded with standard performance 8-speed automatic gear with manual shifting mode that is optional on lesser Cayennes.
All this makes the 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS the purest per¬form¬ance expression of the naturally aspirated Cayennes and to make sure you’re well aware that you’re in the presence of a special engine, Porsche has added a so-called sound symposer. Similar to what the Volkswagen GTI or BMW Z4 has been using for years, it works a lot like an ear horn and pumps engine sound into the cabin. A tube funnels the intake vibrations (noise) into a chamber in the A-pillar. Press the sport button next to the shifter, and all the barks, farts, and guttural sounds from the big V-8 will delight your children and possibly horrify your all significant others.
To be consistent, this 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS is 20 hps more than in the Cayenne S and 80 fewer than in the Turbo and the torque in this 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS that gets a small bump to 380 lb-ft, and that is up 11 over the S’s but well short of the Turbo’s 516.
While stopping distances are impressively short, the brake pedal lacks significant feel and suffers from excessive travel before deceleration is produced, this 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.3 sec, zero to 100 mph in 13.6 sec and zero to 140 mph in 34.4 sec. This 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS has a rolling start from 5 to 60 mph in 6.0 sec and top speed (drag limited) of 156 mph, and can make ¼-mile in 13.9 sec at 101 mph, braking from 70 to 0 mph at 151 ft and road holding of 300-ft-dia skid pad at 0.95 g.
Unfortunately, the extra power in this 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS isn’t particularly noticeable. What is noticeable is that the GTS feels more willing, frisky, and awake than the S. Shorter final-drive ratios in the front and rear differentials help this 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS move from a stoplight with more conviction. Quicker shifts from the eight-speed automatic transmission also help this 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS to claim a 0.2-second improvement in 0-to-60 times compared with the Cayenne S (we got a 5.5-second run out of the last S we tested).
However, the six-speed manual transmission from the previous Cayenne GTS is no longer offered, as, sadly, less than three percent of buyers opted for it. Those folks deserve to be inducted into the “Save the Manuals!” hall of fame, if such a thing were to exist. Additionally, this 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS does have standard paddle shifters behind the steering wheel as well as the manual Tiptronic gate for the shifter.
Nobody knows how many people still want the world’s best-handling ute, one that is not any faster than a version that’s about $16,000 less expensive but looks like the turbo version that costs almost $27,000 more. But you might be one of them, desperately wanting this 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS.
Driving this 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS is a scintillating experience; the expansive hood and the bellow of the barely tamed V-8 give new meaning to the term "grand touring." While we’re a bit sad to see it shuffle off this automotive coil so soon to be replaced by the Turbo S for the second-gen Cayenne, this 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS seems to be a fitting tribute. After stating all these features, cost-cutting probably isn’t your highest priority if you’re in the market for this 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS, while pricing here remains undisclosed, but figure on paying roughly $137,195 with a base price of $83,025 for this SUV as a starting price.
There's a plethora of interesting lavish vehicles, speedy coupé and convertible model cars on the market but none can match the performance and extravagance of this striking 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS which clearly makes its mark in that crowded peer set and stands out as one of the best thanks to an excellent mix of lavish and technology inclusions, good road manners, comfortable ride, and value for money and pleasing styling.
