The Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition 3 features a number of updates for the exterior and cabin but no performance mods
Joining the previous Edition 1 and Edition 2 cars based on the Cayman and Boxster S, the new Edition 3 is packed with a number of unique features for the Cayenne and will be built in a run of 1,000 units.
Distinguishing the special edition model is a Lava Grey paint scheme, extended roof spoiler, racing stripes, and 21in alloy wheels in a matching anthracite finish. The vehicle also comes with bi-xenon headlights as standard and tinted windows. The interior comes adorned with black leather upholstery with red contrasting seams on the instrument panel and doorsills, as well as a new three-spoke multifunction steering wheel.
Some of the more interesting elements of the cabin include a controller for an exhaust valve, which allows the driver to modify the volume emanating from the SUV’s tail-pipes, and a 5.1 surround sound system from Bose with no less than 14 speakers. All 1,000 Edition 3 models also come with a set of Porsche Design accessories, which includes a Chronograph watch and four-piece luggage set.
Sadly, no mechanical medications have been made but the standard 405hp (302kW) and 369lb-ft (500Nm) output is nothing to sneeze at. On the road, this means acceleration from a standstill to 100 m/h in just 6.5 seconds and a top speed of 251km/h.
Orders for the Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition 3 will kick off at the end of May and pricing has been set at €79,100. No word yet on U.S. pricing and availability.
