A potent new Porsche Cayenne GTS SUV and Coupe are headed to Australia in the second half of this year.

The Cayenne GTS promises brutal performance with its 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine delivering 368KW and 660Nm, which is a jump of 30kW and 40Nm over the previous version.

This is matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels.

Porsche claims the Cayenne GTS can complete the benchmark 0-100km/h sprint in 4.4 seconds on the way to a top speed of 275km/h.

In the local range those numbers put the Cayenne GTS above the more powerful but slower Cayenne S E-Hybrid.

It can’t compete with the range-topping Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid that makes a whopping 544kW and 950Nm from its V8 and plug-in hybrid combo. The Turbo E-Hybrid can rocket from 0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds.

The Cayenne GTS SUV will be priced from $209,600 (before on-road costs) when it arrives in the third quarter of this year and the Coupe variant is $3000 more.

It rides on big 21-inch alloy wheels and it features dark bronze sports exhaust tailpipes.

Inside, the Cayenne GTS has a luxe fit-out with synthetic suede fabric covering the roof, armrests and door panels. The power adjustable sports seats are wrapped in synthetic suede and leather and it comes with a heated steering wheel as standard.

It also includes ambient interior lighting, a premium Bose stereo, head-up display and the SUV variant has a panoramic sunroof.
