Porsche reveals Cayenne Turbo S - 550hp & 750Nm

Porsche has revealed the range topper version of its popular SUV, the Cayenne. Named Cayenne Turbo S, the upgraded model received additional 50hp and 50Nm over the already potent Cayenne Turbo. The increased in the powertrain output result in 0.2s second quicker century sprint down to 4.5s and top speed increased by 3 km/h to 282 km/h.

Porsche Cayenne Turbo S is powered by the same engine found in the Panamera Turbo S which is a twin-turbocharged 4.8L V8. The Cayenne Turbo S has been carefully configured for maximum dynamic performance. Therefore, it incorporates all relevant control systems as standard equipment. From the already highly-capable Cayenne Turbo it takes the combination of an air suspension and active PASM damping control. To this is added Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), which reduces the roll angle in curves to improve agility and comfort equally. Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) is also a standard feature, combining torque vectoring on the rear wheels with an electronically controlled rear differential lock to improve traction, thereby increasing agility in every driving situation. The new Cayenne Turbo S is also equipped with the Sport Chrono package as standard.

The exterior appearance of the Cayenne Turbo S clearly hints at its purposeful intent. Design highlights include the air inlet grilles, headlight housings and mirrors, which are painted in high-gloss black. The 21-inch diameter alloy wheels with coloured Porsche centre badges are designed exclusively for the Cayenne Turbo S; their inside surfaces also painted in high-gloss black.
Porsche designers created new leather interior packages in fresh colours and patterns specifically chosen for the new Cayenne Turbo S. These interior features are available in Black/Carrera Red or Black/Luxor Beige combinations. The bi-colour leather packages that are reserved for the new top model are extended by adding decorative seams in the contrasting colours Carrera Red and Luxor Beige. The Carbon interior package complements the leather features and highlights the sophistication of both vehicle and materials.
