2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT design

Available as a Cayenne coupe only, meet the fastest combustion Porsche SUV ever.

Clad with carbon elements, larger air intakes for better cooling, sitting 17mm lower, and possessing a wider rear spoiler, the Turbo GT looks considerably meaner than its siblings. The car also gets a substantial rear diffuser to better manage airflow under the car.

2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT interior and infotainment

The interior is pretty much what you’d expect in any Cayenne coupe, although there are several sporty enhancements for this Turbo GT. There’s a sports steering wheel that compliments a set of more bolstered front seats, while Alcantara and contrasting stitching add some visual verve.

The 2021 Cayenne Turbo GT will be the first car in Porsche’s portfolio to host the new PCM 6 infotainment system. It brings Android Auto compatibility – alongside Apple CarPlay – for better connectivity, users can save songs heard on the radio and the car will even make suggestions based upon your current driving style. There’s also a series of upgrades to the user interface and navigation.

2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT practicality and boot space

This is an easy one as it matches the existing Porsche Cayenne coupe models. Being a more rakish shape it’s obviously not as practical as the regular Cayenne with headroom sacrificed in the rear. However, boot space stands at 600-litres, which is plenty.

The normal Cayenne boasts a boot that’s 145-litre larger, but you can’t get that car in Turbo GT guise.

Designed to be the ultimate pure combustion Cayenne, it sits below the most powerful Turbo S E-Hybrid model. That said, a Turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 producing 631bhp is not to be sniffed at. Power is sent to all four wheels, and with the optional Sport Chrono package, a Turbo GT will run 0-62mph in just 3.3 seconds.

Sitting lower, and with suspension that’s 15% stiffer, this car is considerably more track-focused than the regular model. Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres add extra bite, as does tweaked rear-wheel steering. All of this adds up to a Nurburgring time of 7:38.9 – a new record for SUVs.

2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT prices and on-sale date

As you might expect, this performance SUV doesn’t come cheap. If you want this potent new model you’ll have to find £143,910 before options.

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT will hit UK roads this September.
