2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT is Getting an 800+HP Hybrid Version

The all-new 2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT is the latest version of the Cayenne Coupe model. It is a sleek SUV that will host numerous upgrades. The most significant upgrade could be a hybrid powertrain that will deliver almost 800 horsepower. The arriving model has been spotted during road testing with a different exhaust system. Moreover, the latest reports are suggesting for the GT version to become the range-topping trim level. A hybrid version is not official yet, but it is very certain.

Reportedly, the horsepower figures will be astonishing, surely better than on the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid variant. The prototype looks very attractive and dynamic. To compare, imagine a new model as the 911 GT3 of SUVs. Interestingly, even the name of the new range-topping trim is not official yet. Other rumors are a Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT5 as the nameplate.

2021 Cayenne Turbo GT Exterior Facelift

For a start, the upcoming 2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT will look almost the same as the regular version. Still, the heavy camouflage on the spy shots is perfectly hiding most of the design elements. On the other hand, the shape is the same, and even the dimensions seem to be intact. The front fascia is literally the same as the front part of the Cayenne Couple version. The grille is wide, and it hosts larger side vents. Moreover, LED daytime running lights are offered as standard. The side profile also looks regular on the spy photos. A body-colored cladding is surely black, and it will be optional.

A similar story continues in the back as the taillights bar is unchanged. Moreover, even the rear spoiler is the same, and it comes with a black diffuser. Speaking of which, if you look closely at the diffuser, you’ll realize it is the only exterior feature that departs from the base model. The rectangular exhaust pipes are moved closer to the edges, and two round tips in the center section are visible as well. The all-new exhaust layout clearly suggests something new under the bonnet.

Interior Upgrades

Unfortunately, we couldn’t see the interior details on the latest prototype. However, we can safely assume that the 2021 Porsche  Cayenne Turbo GT will look the same as the Cayenne Coupe model. Normally, the GT variant will provide more luxury and better comfort. For a start, the rectangular dashboard comes with a large infotainment touchscreen in the center.

Moreover, a trapezoidal center console looks impressive and very modern. Porsche will offer a three-spoke steering wheel and a digital instrument cluster. Unlike the base model, Turbo GT will offer eight-way adjustable seats that are more sporty and are providing much higher comfort. Lastly, leather upholstery comes as standard, and the cargo area will be pretty decent.

800+HP Hybrid Powertrain

If the reports are correct, the new 2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT could get around 800 horsepower. As you can see, the exterior and interior are basically the same as the Cayenne Coupe version. However, the real difference will be the performances. Cayenne Coupe is available with five powertrain options. Outputs are ranged from 335 hp to 541 hp. As for the hybrid versions, the S E-Hybrid model is producing 671 horses and 664 lb-ft of torque.

Now, it seems like the Porsche is aiming for even higher figures. For that reason, the new Cayenne Turbo GT will get a hybrid powertrain that will deliver around 800 horsepower. With such a powerful output, this SUV will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. To do that, Porsche is going to tweak the first electric motor and add another one.

2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT Price and Release Date

It is too early to tell, but all-new 2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT will cost around $175,000. As you probably know Turbo S E-Hybrid version costs $165,000, which helps us to determine the price of the next GT version. However, don’t be surprised if this handsome SUV arrives at even higher costs. The main competitor is Lamborghini Urus (act like you’re surprised). Cayenne Turbo GT SUV will go on sale in the second half of 2020.
