Moving out of the way of the 650-hp Porsche Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT is an exercise in reaction time. The Turbo GT is a big two-row SUV with 22-inch wheels and a flurry of LED lighting, but more impressive is its 189 mph top speed and ability to reach 60 mph in under 3.0 seconds. An eight-speed automatic transmission handles the shifting, while its grippy all-wheel drive system, complete with rear-axle steering and torque vectoring, allows it to portray a good
911 sports car impression through canyon twisties. This level of performance doesn’t come cheap: with a price tag just short of $200,000, the Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT is the gnarliest of the Cayenne SUV and Cayenne Coupe models, and its performance is unmistakable. The future of the Cayenne Coupe Turbo and Coupe Turbo S-E Hybrid is still unclear. For now, the Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT carries the model’s legacy of outrageous performance forward.
Where This Vehicle Ranks
What’s New for 2024?
Much has changed for the 2024 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT. Short of entering an all-new generation, the Cayenne gets a new front fascia with enlarged air intakes, different headlights, and more aggressive fenders. For the rear, revised taillights make the Cayenne Coupe Turbo appear as though it’s using up even more of the road. Inside the cabin, a new 12.6-inch curved digital gauge cluster and a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen using is tucked neatly into the dash. The gear selector now functions from a toggle switch that’s been moved to the dash, freeing up additional storage space in the center console area. Similar to what’s available on the all-electric Taycan sedan, a 10.9-inch touchscreen for the front passenger is now available. The Cayenne Turbo GT gains 19 horsepower this year, pushing output to 650 horsepower. Information about the 2024 Cayenne Coupe Turbo and Turbo S E-Hybrid versions is not yet available.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
Just pick your favorite color. There’s no wrong way to order the Turbo GT. It comes standard with Porsche’s matrix LED headlights, carbon fiber roof, diffuser, and other bits and pieces, as well as 22-inch GT Design wheels.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
The Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT tears a hole through the atmosphere courtesy of a 650-hp twin-turbo V-8 with 626 pound-feet of torque, massive brakes, uniquely tuned suspension, and various lightweight components. We tested a 2023 Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT when it had 19 less horsepower than the 2024 model, and it blasted to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds, making it the quickest SUV we’ve ever tested. We’re certain the additional horsepower won’t hamper its acceleration efforts, but we will update this space once we’ve tested a 2024 Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT. Porsche’s quick-acting eight-speed automatic transmission handles gear changes and the Turbo GT is good for up to 189 mph. The Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT features the lowest ride height of any Cayenne, and its standard 22-inch wheels are wrapped in the stickiest tires. When we first sampled the Cayenne Turbo Coupe, we compared its handling with that of a big sports sedan. Driving enthusiasts will appreciate its eager and athletic nature. The Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), torque vectoring, and rear-axle steering all give the Cayenne Turbo Coupe a better way with roads.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
The EPA hasn’t certified fuel economy estimates for the 2024 Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT. The previous SUV from 2023 earned an estimated 15 mpg city and 20 mpg highway from the EPA. We’ll update this space once the most recent data is available. For more information about the Cayenne Turbo Coupe’s fuel economy, visit the EPA’s website.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
Everything from the interior trim to the seatbelt colors to the surface materials can be individually selected for the Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT. The driver faces a beautiful high-def 12.6-inch curved digital gauge cluster. Only offered as a two-row Coupe, the Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT does give-up a little headroom and cargo space versus the traditional squarish Cayenne SUV. Still, its back seat is adjustable and provides plenty of stretch-out space. The Cayenne entices Porsche enthusiasts with ample passenger capacity and cargo volume, which are obviously far greater than the racy 911 sports car’s. The Cayenne provides 20 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats and up to 52 cubes with the seats folded flat. That’s less space than the Cayenne S SUV. Interior cubby storage is unremarkable, with most small items seeking refuge in the door pockets or the shallow center-console bin. Every Cayenne includes a power-operated liftgate; the optional passive-entry system (called Comfort Access) allows it to be opened or closed with a foot gesture.
Infotainment and Connectivity
The infotainment system uses a standard 12.3-inch touchscreen mounted in the middle of the dashboard. Its slick interface includes a configurable home menu and many personalized settings. While the system was responsive and easy to operate during our testing, the screen attracted smudges. A rotary controller would help reduce distractions during driving. Every Cayenne has Porsche Connect Plus, which includes a Wi-Fi hotspot as well as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A set of upgraded audio systems includes a 14-speaker Bose unit or a much pricier Burmester setup that pumps 1455 watts through 21 speakers. An available rear-seat entertainment system attaches two 10.0-inch displays to the back of the front-seat headrests.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
The Cayenne Turbo Coupe GT is available with a bevy of driver-assistance technology to help keep occupants safe. Every model has forward-collision warning and parking sensors at both ends. It even supports night vision with an optional infrared camera. For more information about the Cayenne’s crash test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:
- Available adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology
- Available blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert
- Available lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
- Limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
- Powertrain warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
