The name Porsche
is synonymous with performance, even when it's attached to the back of a heavyweight like the Cayenne SUV
. The newest performer in the Cayenne line starts off with a 405-horsepower, 4.8-liter V8 engine and adds, for the first time on a V8-powered Cayenne, a six-speed manual transmission. A Tiptronic tranny is also available. On sale now, the $70,000 Cayenne GTS offers its owners an extra dose of exclusivity with aggressive ground effects and unique wheel arch moldings, 21-inch alloy rims and specially constructed Alcantara-clad sport seats.
