We not only put the performance values of the most powerful Cayenne model to date under scrutiny, but also its emotional appeal – as well as aspects such as design, everyday practicality and a variety of equipment and features. The stated objective of our engineers: noticeably more of everything, including exclusivity.
The figures speak for themselves: 405 kW (550 hp) and 750 Nm of torque. That’s 37 kW (50 hp) and 50 Nm more than the Cayenne Turbo. Top speed is 283 km/h (175 mph).
Additional technologies fitted as standard such as the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) active anti-roll system or Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) also ensure that the car’s driving dynamics are second to none.
However, it was about much more than setting a new benchmark in the SUV market. It was about creating a higher authority.
This supremacy is based on Intelligent Performance: the concept of offering increased power and efficiency with comparatively low fuel consumption.
‘Turbo S’ – a designation that represents the highest standards in technology and emotional appeal, along with a good dose of luxury. The same philosophy applies to the equipment and design, which are sophisticated, elegant and modern. In a word: exclusive. This is accentuated by a leather interior featuring new exclusive two-tone combinations and the use of materials such as carbon.
Once again, we’ve produced a sports car that is fascinating through and through.
