(from Porsche Press
Release) New Porsche Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition 3
Stuttgart. Introducing an exclusive series of models to be produced
only in a limited edition, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart,
is expanding its successful range of SUVs: Production of the Cayenne
GTS Porsche Design Edition 3 with its exclusive features will be
limited to just one thousand numbered units.
With this new model, the Cayenne is continuing the innovative design
line already initiated successfully with the Cayman S Porsche Design
Edition 1 and the Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2. The clear
handwriting of the Porsche Design Studio based in Zell am See,
Austria, one of the world leaders in industrial and product design,
comes out clearly from the start in the choice of the Cayenne’s
paintwork colour, Lava Grey Metallic emphasising the sporting and
purist look of the car, design stripes at the side and on the engine
compartment lid highlighting the exclusive origin of this very
special Cayenne. The 21-inch SportPlus wheels featured as standard
are also finished in this special exterior colour.
The elegant look of this new model is rounded off by bi-xenon
headlights featured as standard as well as dark privacy glazing to
the rear of the B-pillar and the “Cayenne GTS“ model designation in
black with a red “S” at the rear. An extended roof spoiler with its
double wing profile fixed in position is available at no extra cost.
Exclusive black leather upholstery with red contrasting seams on the
instrument panel and doorsills further enhances the appealing looks
of the 405-hp Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition 3. The padded
three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, in turn, raises the car’s
unique sporting character to an even higher level.
Electrically adjustable sports seats with a comfort memory package
and high-rising side supports offer the driver and front passenger
optimum seating comfort and very good support at the sides. The
front headrests proudly boast an embossed Porsche logo, the centre
seat sections front and rear are finished in slip-proof alcantara.
The same material gives parts of the centre console and door linings
as well as the inner sections of the door handles and the complete
roof lining a discreet but sophisticated touch of class and
elegance, while carbon trim bars bear clear and convincing reference
to motorsport. The Porsche Design Edition 3 model designation,
finally, stands out clearly on the rev counter, the front door entry
trim and the placard in the glove compartment with the serial number
of the vehicle embossed on the surface.
The unique experience in sound so typical of a Porsche comes, first,
at the touch of a button from the sports exhaust system featured as
standard and, second, from the Bose 5.1 Surround Sound System with
no less than 14 loudspeakers and overall output of 410 W.
Not only this kind of sound, but also the outstanding performance of
this special model with its 4.8-litre 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) V8 arouses
particular emotions. On the road, this means acceleration from a
standstill to 100 km/h with six-speed Tiptronic S featured as
standard in the Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition 3 in just 6.5
seconds, as well as top speed of 251 km/h or 156 mph.
By tradition, every Porsche Design Edition comes as standard with
unique Porsche Design accessories. The Porsche Design Chronograph
exclusively matching each model, for example, stands for particular
class and style. In the case of the Porsche Design Edition 3, the
Porsche Design Studio has created a Type P’6612 automatic
chronograph featuring a light titanium casing measuring 42
millimetres in diameter and further enhanced by a metal strap with
DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating. This special coating carried over
from racing engines gives the titanium body of the watch its
characteristic colour, while the exclusive face of the chronograph
takes up striking design features from the interior of the Cayenne.
Another perfect match for this very special vehicle is the
four-piece luggage set bearing the Porsche Design Edition 3 label
and made up of three trolley cases varying in size as well as a
functional briefcase. With the exception of the largest trolley case
– offering a capacity of 62 litres – all items may be used on
aircraft as carry-on travel baggage.
The market launch of the Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition 3 in
Germany starts at the end of May. The base price in the Euro area
including the chronograph and the complete set of cases is Euro
79,100.-, the retail price in Germany including 19 per cent
value-added tax and national specifications is Euro 94,344.-.
