Porsche announces pricing for 2009 Cayenne GTS

We've shown you Porsche's sportier sport 'ute -- the Cayenne GTS -- before, but now we have U.S. pricing information to boot. Those looking to put a Cayenne GTS in their garage will have to give up $69,300 to their local Porsche dealer when the SUV hits show rooms next month.

In case you've forgotten, the Cayenne GTS is based on the regular Cayenne S and uses that vehicle's 405 horsepower 4.8-liter V-8. The automatic Tiptronic S transmission from that vehicle is also available, but for the first time, Porsche is also offering to pair a conventional six-speed manual with the V-8, which should be good for slightly better acceleration figures. The Cayenne's handling is also said to be improved in GTS trim, by virtue of 21-inch wheels with lower-profile tires and the addition of Porsche Active Suspension Mangement (PASM), a suspension control system that optimizes performance during sporty driving.

Of course, some body enhancements have also been made lest your neighbors think you've cheaped out on a standard Cayenne. The Cayenne GTS rides lower than its siblings, and features a new wheel arch design and a front end that mimics the Cayenne Turbo. Inside, grippy Alcantara is used to cover the front seats and both front and rear seats have undergone a redesign to give a sportier look and feel.
With the standard Cayenne S coming in at $57,900, there is definitely a premium to be paid for all these extras. But with Porsche touting the Cayenne GTS as offering "the best on-road characteristics of any Cayenne Porsche has ever produced," there will surely be a line of enthusiasts snapping these up. The Porsche Cayenne GTS will make its North American debut at the 2008 Chicago Auto Show next week. Stay tuned to Truck Trend Online for all your Chicago show coverage live from the show floor Feburary 6 and 7.
