That's right, I always wanted to go on a 4,500-kilometer road trip across the U.S. from New York City to Los Angeles.It might not have been the 4,500-kilometer drive I had envisioned, but it was still a good bit of motoring, so naturally it took me all of 15 minutes to shower, get dressed, pack a bag and hop in the Cayenne.But I digress because you want to know about the Cayenne and not about my personal road-trip fancies, so let's talk about the GTS. Obviously the quad exhaust will not escape your attention, nor will the fact that the GTS sits nearly 2.5 centimeters lower than the standard Cayenne.That means when you lift the hood of the GTS, rather than the 4.8-liter normally aspirated V-8 that used to reside in the engine bay you will find a turbocharged 3.6-liter V-6 .That defies everything I know about math but clearly that twin-scroll turbo is clearly doing something right because those figures are remarkable, and can get this 2.1-ton SUV to 100 kilometers per hour in just a hair over 5 seconds.In case you've never been to San Francisco, the whole city is laid out on a bunch of hills, so every road is either uphill or downhill, which made the GTS' phenomenal 596 Newton-meter of torque quite handy, especially climbing up Lombard Street because I wanted to see "the most crooked street in the world," which basically zigzags downhill on a path no bigger than the turning circle of an average car.
