Porsche Cayenne Turbo
Check your preconceived notions at the door, and the Cayenne gives buyers a lot to like. It’s distinctively styled, with a definite family resemblance to models ranging from the 911 through the Panamera, and that represents a clear departure from the traditional box-on-box school of SUV design.
Living up to the highest standards is one thing-striving for perfection goes far beyond it. We wanted to create a car which blazes new trails and sets standards. It was all about answering the question of how one defines luxury, technology and safety today. This is how the new Cayenne turbo came into being. In a class of its own.
The Porsche Cayenne is one of the most appealing midsize luxury crossovers thanks to its sophisticated engineering, impeccable construction, immense features list and surprisingly useful cabin. True, it doesn’t boast a third-row seat or the massive cargo capacity of larger crossovers, but its sliding, reclining and folding rear seat adds a degree of versatility that other luxury SUVs lack.
The Cayenne Turbo blends phenomenal performance with outstanding comfort and efficiency. It does so in style, but without ever compromising on any one in particular.
Like other Porsches, the Cayenne features fine interior materials put together with excellent craftsmanship. Handsome wood, alloy trim and leather upholstery further add to the luxurious ambience, plus you can add even more leather and wood along with carbon or faux suede thanks to the exhaustive options list. The front seats are available in three different designs, ranging from simple eight-way power adjustment to the 14-way sport seats, which feature adjustable bolsters, lumbar and seat cushion length.
When it’s come to the performance side, supreme engineering that speaks for itself. In short, everything you’d expect from a Turbo. Another clear statement is the distinctive sound from the twin dual-tube tailpipes. Produced by the 4.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that delivers 368 kW (500 hp) and features direct fuel injection.
The car has a top speed of 278 km/h and the benchmark sprint from 0 to 100 km/h is completed in 4.7 seconds. Maximum torque is 700 Nm. Here too, fuel consumption has been reduced by 23 % and CO2 emissions by 25 %.1) Not least thanks to a weight saving of 185 kg.1) Optimum traction and safety are provided by Porsche Traction Management (PTM, p. 47) active all wheel drive. Also connecting the car to the road are the 19-inch Cayenne Turbo wheels – wheels up to 21 inches in diameter are available as an option.
The 2013 Porsche Cayenne comes standard with antilock brakes with enhanced brake assist and readiness, stability and traction control, driver knee airbag, front side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. Rear side airbags, parking sensors, a rearview camera and a blind-spot warning system are available.
Impressive power and handling, high-quality interiors, fuel efficient. Yes! The Cayenne Turbo combines legendary Porsche sports car performance with convenient SUV utility and all-condition capability.
