At this year’s Detroit Auto Show, Porsche introduced the all-new Cayenne Turbo S. This is the fastest SUV that Porsche has ever created. How fast is fast? Get ready to go from 0-60 in 3.8 seconds. This Cayenne can also reach a top speed of 176mph — yeah, that’s fast! Speed isn’t the only thing that Porsche sunk into the redesigned Cayenne Turbo S. Porsche has completely redesigned the Turbo S from the inside out.
Under the Hood
The new Cayenne’s turbochargers are now placed in the exhaust pipe area. This new placement is meant to boost the 4.8-litre twin-turbo V8, which it does nicely based on the presentations at the Detroit Auto Show. So, what you’re looking at now is 562bhp and 589lb ft of torque inside of the new Cayenne.
You’ll also get 420mm carbon ceramic brakes equipped with 10-piston calipers, and 370mm 4-piston ceramic discs working on the back end. Porsche has also included something called ‘Dynamic Chassis Control,’ which aims to make rolling when turning corners minimal. All of this adds up to a seriously powerful and fast machine that’s far more than a family car or a replacement for a minivan — if you’re driving a Cayenne, you’re into speed and power.
On the Outside
It’s the way that the Cayenne looks that really generates a lot of interest in this SUV for those that aren’t serious about things like speed and power. Porsche has also added some exterior updates to the Cayenne that help the SUV stand out even more. You’ll find dynamic LED headlights, 21-inch wheels (a design based on the 911), a stunning cream and black interior outlined with carbon fibre trim, and gloss black paint. If that doesn’t get your heart racing, not much will!
Pricing and Availability
There’s no way that the fastest SUV on the planet is going to sell for a low price, so it shouldn’t come as too much shock that the price listed on the new Cayenne Turbo S will be around $180,000. Yep, you read that price right. If you want to rock a Cayenne Turbo S, you’ll have to shell out the price of a house to get it. For most people, that’s the price of a small home, but it’s a minimal amount to pay for the fastest SUV ever created.
If you’re going to spend more than $100,000 on a SUV, you want to make sure that the SUV you do purchase is going to be reliable, right? How does the Cayenne stack up? Car and Driver Magazine had this to say about the 2015 Cayenne (we can’t yet rate or gather details on the 2016 model): “…essentially unrivaled combination of on-road dynamics and feel, paired with off-road capabilities more than sufficient for those families who use their utes for more than just grabbing groceries.”
Those are some pretty solid words from one of the biggest car magazines out there, and it all adds up to mean that you really do get what you pay for with Porsche — if you can pay for it, that is. These are strong cars that are built to last, built for speed, and built to represent the Porsche name, which is no small feat. While Porsche SUVs don’t break down often, when they do break down it’s vital that you bring your SUV to a garage that knows how to handle luxury cars like this one. Otherwise, you never know what might happen during those seemingly simple repairs!
