‘With the upcoming launch here of the exhilarating new Cayenne GTS and 911 GT2, there can be no doubt about Porsche’s rightful place as a performance carmaker in both the SUV and coupé segments,’ said Deesch Papke, managing director of Porsche Middle East & Africa.
‘The engine delivers a massive 405 bhp at 6,500 rpm while the torque level registers 500 Nm at a low range of 3,500 rpm. A shorter axel ratio means this new Porsche is capable of scintillating performance, reaching 100 km/h from standstill in just 6.1 seconds; this is almost unheard of in an SUV.’
The design reflects the car’s attitude, with the front and rear resembling the all-out Cayenne Turbo, and the striking 14mm wheel-arch enlargements, combined with the standard 21-inch alloy rims and low-profile tyres provide plenty of visual aggression.
‘Two new colours have been reserved exclusively for this new model: GTS Red and Nordic Gold Metallic. Meanwhile, newly developed 12-way sports seats and a leather-Alcantara mix emphasise the sporty interior.’
The 911 GT2 is lightning fast, reaching 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and continuing to a top speed of 329 km/h. The 3.6-litre engine with two exhaust gas turbochargers featuring variable turbine geometry (VTG) achieves its maximum output of 530 bhp at 6500 rpm, with maximum torque of 680 Nm maintained consistently between 2,200 and 4,500 rpm.
Engineers have placed much emphasis on the 911 GT2’s green credentials; with an average fuel consumption of just 12.5 litres/100 km in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC), this car offers a level of fuel economy regarded as quite impossible in this performance class just a few years ago.
Commenting on the dual launch, Papke said he was convinced Porsche had the most comprehensive range of performance cars.
