Porsche has revealed what it calls the sportiest Cayenne of them all.

The new Cayenne GTS is designed to appeal to those who want a go-fast soft-roader who don't plan to go off the beaten track. Ever.

It's fitted with lowered sports suspension, a bold front bumper, bi-xenon headlamps, a full-body lower body kit and twin-deck roof spoiler, pumped wheel arches, a sports exhaust with matte black quad tips, and 20-inch alloy wheels.

It's only available in two colours - red and green - with each version receives identically highlights through the cabin, including GTS stitching on the seatbacks, coloured seatbelts and bright stitch-work on the dash. Leather and alcantara sports seats are also standard.

The Cayenne GTS is powered by a modified version of the Cayenne's 4.8-litre V8 engine producing 309kW and 515Nm (up 15kW and 15Nm over the S) and sends its power to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Porsche says the SUV can spring from 0-100kmh in just 5.7 seconds, while fuel consumption is rated at 10.7L/100km, aided by a petrol-saving stop-start system.

The GTS fills the gap between the Cayenne S and the range-topping Turbo models. It will be officially unveiled at the 2012 Beijing motor show later this month.
