Porsche Cayenne GTS: Test driven

We found a nice test drive report of the Porsche Cayenne GTS including some nice pics. Enjoy!
The GTS uses the Cayenne S as its starting point, but the addition of its two extra letters required more than just plastic molds and superglue. The new model's front and rear fascias are boosted from the more powerful Turbo model, but the wheel arches that are widened by just over a half-inch are unique to the GTS, as is the no-cost (but also non-functional), optional, double-wing rear spoiler. Rounding out the GTS's cosmetic tweaking are new, lower side sills, and blacked-out b- and c-pillars. Twenty-one-inch wheels wrapped in massive 295/35R21 Michelin rubber are available in two different styles, and two new colors — Nordic Gold and GTS Red — are exclusive to this latest Cayenne.

Inside, every surface is wrapped in either leather or sweet, sweet Alcantara, and the steering wheel is padded for extra grip-friendly thickness. The driver and front passenger get 12-way adjustable sport seats that are supportive and comfortable on long drives. Three seatbelts still line the rear bench, but the two outlying positions have been shaped and bolstered to match the fronts, so this Cayenne is better suited to four than five passengers.
