This was a limited run Cayenne with the GTS engine and just 1,000 were made. Compared to the standard GTS, the Design Edition 3 came with a host of exterior and interior changes. This model is in the unique Lava Grey metallic exterior and Porsche Design Edition 3 decals around the car.

The Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition 3 boasts the formidable 4.8-litre V8 engine renowned within the company, generating an impressive 298 kW of power accompanied by a robust 500 Nm of torque. Featuring the standard six-speed Tiptronic S, the latest iteration of the Cayenne sprints to 100 km/h in a swift 6.5 seconds, ultimately reaching a top speed of 251 km/h.

In alignment with Porsche’s tradition, each Porsche Design Edition model comes accompanied by a set of exclusive Porsche Design accessories. The Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition 3 proudly includes the uniquely crafted Porsche Design Chronograph watch, meticulously designed to complement the vehicle. This chronograph watch showcases a lightweight titanium casing and a metal strap coated with DLC (diamond-like carbon), a technology inherited from racing engines. This specialized coating not only lends the watch’s titanium body its distinctive hue but also reflects the signature design elements from the Cayenne’s interior onto the chronograph’s exclusive face.
