2024 Porsche Cayenne GTS SUV Gets More Power

Porsche has unveiled its new 2024 Porsche Cayenne GTS SUV and the car comes with more power than the previous model, plus a range of other upgrades. The 2024 Cayenne GTS boasts an upgraded 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, which now produces an impressive 500 PS, a notable increase from its predecessor. This substantial power boost is further complemented by a sophisticated chassis setup derived from the high-performance Cayenne Turbo GT. The advanced chassis features adaptive air suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus), which work in harmony to enhance the vehicle’s responsiveness and cornering agility. The increased negative camber on the front axle pivot bearings further contributes to the Cayenne GTS’s exceptional handling capabilities, allowing drivers to tackle even the most challenging roads with confidence. In addition to its outstanding performance, the 2024 Cayenne GTS sets itself apart with exclusive GTS styling elements. These include dark-tinted headlights, striking red brake calipers, and sleek high-gloss black exterior details, all of which contribute to the vehicle’s aggressive and sporty appearance. …

The Conti’s level of athleticism is not something you’d expect in something that weighs more than 5,000 lbs. And yet, the warping doesn’t stop there. The new car market has made advanced driver assistance—like lane-keep assist and blind-spot monitoring—a commonplace for a few years. But recently, I experienced a whole other form of driver assistance offered in the Bentley Continental GT that I never had before: thermal imaging. And I found it truly fascinating.  This technology paints what we see in an entirely different light, and was fun to test while cruising around the streets of Los Angeles in peak opulence. Here’s how the British automaker’s thermal imaging system works, what it’s like to use, and how it could affect our concept of safety (for …

Porsche Cayman 718 GTS vs BMW M2

Are you in the market for a sports car that not only delivers on performance but also offers a thrilling driving experience? Look no further. A recent video from MotorTrend pits two of the most acclaimed sports cars against each other: the 2023 BMW M2 and the 2023 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS 4.0. This comparison goes beyond the surface, examining design, performance, practicality, and driving experience to help you decide which car is the superior choice for your needs. The BMW M2’s design might stir up debates initially, but it’s one that grows on you over time. With its aggressive, angular front and pronounced wheel arches, it subtly hints at the beast that lies beneath the hood. In contrast, the Porsche Cayman boasts a more timeless aesthetic, one that has maintained its allure with minimal changes since 2012. While it may not turn heads as quickly as the M2, it carries an elegance that is unmistakably Porsche.The heart of the matter lies in how these cars perform on the road. The Porsche 718 Cayman GTS …
