It might not pack the punch of the Turbo models, but the GTS is one sweet driver's car.

Porsche's GTS badge is conferred upon some of its best-driving vehicles, positioned in a space above the base models but below the true insanity of the Turbo and Turbo S variants.

It's generally assumed that any Porsche is good to drive, even its larger SUVs, but the GTS treatment takes it a step above.

Returning for the 2021 model year, the Cayenne GTS proves that its two-door models don't get to have all the fun.

A V8 has triumphantly returned to its position underhood, which replaces the old GTS' high-strung V6.

Acceleration only tells part of the story; despite being on the larger side, the Cayenne GTS is agile.

Four USB-C ports provide juice for each passenger, but with the addition of wireless Apple CarPlay (standard) and device charging ($690), the cord isn't technically necessary, though it's frustrating that Android Auto is still not present.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS is a hoot on the road, because every iteration that's come before it has been equally exciting.

Whether you want it in "coupeover" form or not, the GTS will reward you with a driving experience to which other sporty SUVs should aspire.
