Launched as part of the extensive 2023 overhaul of the Cayenne lineup, these exciting new entries are driven by a powerful 368 kW (500 PS) twin-turbo V8 engine. Integrated with an advanced chassis derived from the celebrated Turbo GT, the GTS models deliver an invigorating combination of sheer power and precise engineering, aimed to thrill both avid drivers and luxury addicts.

Dynamic Performance Meets Practical Design

The new Porsche Cayenne GTS models, crafted in Stuttgart, represent the Gran Turismo Sport spirit, boasting a perfect blend of dynamic performance and long-distance capability. These vehicles redefine the high-performance sports car paradigm, shifting towards an enhanced on-road focus while maintaining robust all-terrain capabilities.

The core of the Cayenne GTS lies in its four-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which has been meticulously enhanced to produce 30 kW (40 PS) more than its predecessor, achieving a significant performance leap to 368 kW (500 PS) and 660 Nm of torque. This is complemented by a refined eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission, ensuring quicker response and shift times, especially in Sport and Sport Plus modes.

Chassis innovations are pivotal in the GTS models, with technology borrowed from the esteemed Cayenne Turbo GT. This includes a 10-millimeter-lower ride height, adaptive air suspension, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus), all fine-tuned to deliver exceptional handling and agility.

Enhanced Features and Sophisticated Technology for the Modern Driver

Visually, the Cayenne GTS models stand out with distinctive GTS styling, which includes black ‘GTS’ lettering, dark-tinted headlights and taillights, red brake calipers, and High-Gloss Black body attachments. This iconic design is now enriched with dark bronze-toned sports exhaust system tailpipes and 21-inch RS Spyder-design wheels in anthracite grey.

Interior enhancements match the exterior’s flair, featuring a heated GT sports steering wheel and extensive use of the high-quality Race-Tex material. This suede-like fabric adorns the roof lining, armrests, door panels, and the center panels of the eight-way adjustable sports seats, providing a luxurious feel and superior comfort. For those seeking a more personalized touch, Porsche offers GTS-specific interior packages in Carmine Red or Slate Grey Neo.

The new models also boast advanced technological features as part of the Porsche Driver Experience, including a curved digital instrument cluster, ambient lighting, and a Bose® surround sound system. The Cayenne GTS Coupé additionally features a fixed panoramic glass roof and an adaptive extending rear spoiler.

UAE Initiates State-Owned EV Charging Initiative to Boost Electric Vehicle Acceptance

The United Arab Emirates is improving its electric vehicle infrastructure with a new government-owned EV charging network.

Wed, May 22, 2024 2 min

The UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MoEI) alongside Etihad Water and Electricity (Etihad WE) have collaborated to form UAEV, a new joint venture aimed at strengthening the electric vehicle (EV) charging framework throughout the UAE. This venture is the first EV charging network entirely owned by the government, aimed at broadening access to EV charging facilities across the country.

The project seeks to revolutionize the UAE’s transport sector by enabling broader adoption of EVs via a robust and widespread charging infrastructure. This initiative is expected to strengthen communities, generate employment, and promote eco-friendly transportation options.

Suhail bin Mohammed Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, said: “UAEV embodies the power of partnership between government and industry, and aims to provide vital electric vehicle infrastructure to boost adoption of EVs, energize communities, and unleash the economic potential of the UAE.

“We hope that this partnership will further accelerate the transition to cleaner transportation and significantly reduce emissions from the transportation sector, thereby helping to bring our Net Zero 2050 Strategy within reach.”

Sharif Al Olama, who has been appointed Chairman of UAEV, said: “In 2023, we saw a rise in EV adoption in the UAE. By expanding our EV infrastructure, we ensure the country is equipped to support those who have already purchased an EV and make the prospect of switching to EV attractive.

“Together, MoEI and Etihad WE form a powerful force that can help future-proof the UAE and achieve the twin objectives of economic growth and climate action, which underpin UAEV.”

The UAEV is also a perfect platform for Etihad WE, the largest employer in the Northern Emirates and a company with a customer base of over 2 million households, to use its core competency and enhance its product offering.

Yousif Ahmed Al Ali, CEO of Etihad Water and Electricity and Board Member of UAEV, explained: “It is part of a deliberate strategy to diversify our operations, using the knowledge and experience acquired from our role as long-standing pioneers in the energy sector, to explore new products, services, projects, and investments which will benefit our customers.

“UAEV charging infrastructure will contribute to the modernization of the UAE’s transport network, help energize communities by creating new jobs, and empower our customers to make more sustainable choices.”
