Porsche facelifted the Cayenne lineup in April 2023, and along with the rest of the range, the Turbo GT version was also drastically improved.
After the success recorded with the Cayenne lineup and the Turbo version, the German automaker continued its quest to provide one of the best go-fast SUVs on the market. Sharing its platform with vehicles such as the Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga meant that the Porsche-branded crossover could benefit from several structural developments that helped it perform well at high speeds. In addition, thanks to the practical interior and its luxury-oriented features helped the automaker sell them in big numbers for its segment. On the other hand, the Turbo GT version focused more on performance and exterior styling, and the facelifted version brought new upgrades that pleased customers.
The exterior look of the Turbo GT version was offered exclusively with the Cayenne Coupe bodywork but with some unique styling touches. At the front, it featured the same two-slat grille flanked by LED-adorned side scoops, but the lower bumper received an additional lip spoiler in a carbon-fiber trim. Moreover, the same design trims were used for the door mirrors. From its profile, the sloped-back greenhouse was adorned at the back on the upper side of the tailgate by a small wing complemented by an additional spoiler on the lower side, above the taillights. Underneath the rear bumper, Porsche added two oval exhausts, placed closer to the car's center, surrounded by the diffuser.
Inside, the dashboard offered a completely new experience for the car's occupants. Porsche installed a 12.6” curved display in front of the driver for the instrument panel and two other touchscreens: one of 12.3” for the infotainment system and a 10.9” one in front of the side passenger. Another significant change was the removal of the gear selector from the center console. The automaker took inspiration from the Taycan and moved that next to the steering wheel. Sports seats were standard for the front occupants, while the rear benchseat was profiled for two, even though it sported three headrests.
Under the hood, the automaker squeezed another 19 PS (19 hp) from the turbocharged V8 engine. Thus, the vehicle could pass the 300 kph (186 mph) barrier.
