Stuttgart. At the first German motor show of the year, the AMI Leipzig, the Porsche Design Group and Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche AG will present the Porsche Design Edition 3, with a limited production run of 1,000 units. The Porsche Design Edition 3 is a special edition Cayenne GTS model in metallic lava gray accompanied by selected Porsche Design products.
The Cayenne continues the innovative design line which began successfully with the ‘Porsche Design Edition 1’ Cayman S and the ‘Porsche Design Edition 2’ Boxster S. The clear signature of the Porsche Design Studio – a global leader in industrial and product design based in Zell am See in Austria – is even evident in the choice of exterior color. Metallic lava gray emphasizes the sporty, purist appearance of the model, while design stripes on the sides and engine hood illustrate its distinctive aesthetic character. Even the standard 21-inch Sport Plus wheels have an elegant metallic gray finish.
The exterior package is completed with the accentuated black surrounds of the bi-xenon headlights and dark tinted glass from the B-pillar to the rear, as well as the model name ‘Cayenne GTS’ in black with a red ‘S’ on the tail. The appeal of the 405 bhp Cayenne GTS is further accentuated by the exclusive black leather trim with red contrast stitching on the dashboard and door sills. The driving performance of the 4.8-liter V8 engine with 500 Nm torque is likewise impressive. The Porsche Design Edition 3 with its standard six-speed Tiptronic S gearbox accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.5 seconds and has a top speed of 251 km/h.
The gradual market launch of the ‘Porsche Design Edition 3’ Cayenne GTS will begin in Germany at the end of May. The base price is 79,100 euros with the chronograph and luggage set and, including 19 percent value-added tax, the price in Germany will be 94,344 euros.
