Comparing Porsche Cayenne GTS vs. Turbo S


Turbo S Beats GTS for Raw Power

If pure power is an addiction that lies deep within your soul, then nothing other than the 570 horses the Turbo S has hidden under its bonnet will be enough to satisfy your cravings. Stomp on the accelerator and let the ponies run as you develop a spine-crunching 590 foot pounds of torque on the way to reaching 60 miles per hour in just 3.8 seconds. However, if taking a little under 5 seconds to reach 60 mph is quick enough and you’d like to have an additional $60,000 to spend on such things as your kid’s soccer uniforms or perhaps a base Cayenne as your second vehicle, then the 440 horses generated by the GTS’s 3.6-liter engine are probably adequate for your needs. Test drive both versions of the Porsche Cayenne and decide for yourself at Porsche of Tucson.

GTS Lighter, More Nimble than Turbo S

Weighing in at 275 fewer pounds than its sister vehicle, the GTS takes a lighter touch to maneuver around a closed circuit. Both vehicles have stability and traction control, but critics think the GTS model is a bit looser, making for a more enjoyable driving experience for owners who don’t spend a lot of time on the track. Both SUVs come with the same 8-speed automatic transmission. Air springs are standard on the Turbo S, but optional on the GTS.

Both Models Have all the Bells and Whistles

With a price tag starting at just under $100K for the GTS and a bit south of $160K for the Turbo S, you’d expect to have all the creature comforts the engineers at Porsche could imagine. Neither vehicle will disappoint in this regard. Although the Turbo S has a bit more pizzazz with the Porsche Crest and Turbo S badging emblazoned on the seats and the door sill guards, both vehicles have state-of-the-art entertainment and navigation systems along with a driver’s cockpit that looks more at home in a space shuttle. A multi-function steering wheel provides controls for everything within the reach of a finger. Paddle shifters let you flip through the automatic gears for fun or just to show off to your passengers. The interiors of both vehicles are so beautiful and functional it’s best if you just check them out for yourself at the Porsche of Tucson showroom.

Cayenne has Seven Models to From Which to Choose

If the GTS and Turbo S are a bit pricier than you’d like, the base Porsche Cayenne starts below $60,000, making it competitive with many U.S. brands that don’t feature the Porsche name and heritage. Other models include the Diesel ($62,000), Cayenne S ($74,000), E-Hybrid ($76,000) and plain Turbo ($114,000).
