All-new Porsche Cayenne Turbo parks all its 550 horsepower in Frankfurt

Frankfurt Motor Show 2017: Porsche introduces all-new Cayenne

The New Porsche Cayenne Turbo Accelerates As Quickly As A Manual GT3

You're looking at the fastest Porsche SUV yet - the new 2018 model year Cayenne Turbo, freshly unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show.

Or maybe it's alchemy because the specs look magical. The standard three-litre turbocharged power unit that will produce 40 hp more than the outgoing model at 340 hp and the Cayenne S will get a 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine with an additional 20 hp for a total of 440 hp. - an increase of 15 kW (20 hp). But despite the Cayenne's additional bulk, the engine is almost as effective as in Porsche's handsome sedan. All that power gives the new Cayenne Turbo a 0-62 miles per hour time of only 4.1 seconds or 3.9 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package. While the sprint to 60 is almost as fast as the Panamera, the Cayenne is unsurprisingly slower on the top end.

The campaign, which is open to all Porsche Cayenne owners and will run until September 29, is meant to promote Porsche's After Sales expertise and to enhance relations with QAF Eurokars Sdn Bhd's (the company being the distributor of Porsche vehicles in the country) valuable customers; to provide customers with expert information to help them make better and more informed decisions with regard to their vehicle maintenance; as well as to offer customers tools that make the maintenance process easy and intuitive. That's about 0.1 seconds quicker than the previous Cayenne Turbo S. The top speed is rated at 286 kmph on the model. Add available systems such as the electric Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) roll stabilization connected to a 48-volt vehicle electrical system, and the Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV+), and the 911 reference starts to make some sense. Complemented by optional rear-axle steering, the electric Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) roll stabilisation connected to a 48-volt vehicle electrical system and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV+), the new Cayenne Turbo achieves the driving dynamics of a sports auto. In particular, the combination of the new three-chamber air suspension with the active shock-absorber system PASM extends the range considerably.

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo is no sleeper over the standard version and gets distinctive visual upgrades apart from the Turbo badge. Starting at $125,650, it's significantly more expensive than the $83,950 Cayenne S, but is a relative bargain compared to the $150,000 Panamera Turbo. Here in America, though, we'll have to wait a little longer.
