Exclusive Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition 3 to hit the streets

Like the Porsche Cayman S Design Edition 1 and Boxster S Design Edition 2 before it, the Cayenne GTS Design Edition 3 is a show case of what the German automaker’s industrial design shop can do.

The Cayenne version maintains the trends set by the Cayman S and Boxster S with special dark striping on the doors and bonnet that contrasts with the unique Lava Grey Metallic paint colour. The 21-inch SportPlus wheels continue the colour scheme and feature thin spokes through which the GTS’ braking hardware can be viewed. A roof spoiler, tinted glass and special “Porsche Design Edition 3” badging round out the exterior appointments. The interior is finished with lots of carbon fibre trim, black leather with red stitching, while more “Porsche Design Edition 3” branding can be found on the instruments, door sills and a token placard in the glove box along with the vehicle’s serial number.

Performance upgrades are scarce on this limited edition version of the Cayenne GTS, which is already a capable performance SUV. However, you do get a sports exhaust and slightly lowered suspension. What sweetens the deal is the Porsche Design accessories that come standard, including a chronograph watch and four-piece luggage set.

Only 1,000 examples of the exclusive Porsche Cayenne GTS Design Edition 3 will be produced.
