Porsche Cayenne Turbo S Gets an Engine Refresh
Buckle up if you’re thirsty for more! The Porsche Cayenne Turbo S has gotten a refresh, upping the power and stabilizing the handling.
A re-engineered 4.8-liter V8 biturbo engine giving 570 hp (419 kW) and 800 Nm (590 ft lb) of torque and offers 20 hp more power and 50 Nm (36.8 ft lb) more torque than the previous engine, accelerating from zero to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds – which is 0.4 seconds faster than the previous model (0 – 60 mph in 3.8 seconds). Its top speed is now 284 km/h (176 mph).
With the new power set-up, the Cayenne set a new record on the North Loop of the Nürburgring for SUVs.
Braking and stopping aren’t a problem with standard Porsche Composite Ceramic Brakes (PCCB) which include 420 mm front brake discs and, for the first time, ten-piston calipers. The rear brakes have 370 mm discs and four-piston calipers. The active roll stabilization system, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) proactively reduces side tilt when driving through curves early on.
And, driving through those curves is no problem, says Prosche, because their active hang-on all-wheel drive system Porsche Traction Management (PTM) permanently drives the rear wheels while offering fully variable power distribution to the front wheels.
Standard features of the Cayenne Turbo S reflect the top level of this model. They include 21-inch wheels in distinctive 911 Turbo design with black painted edges, LED headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus), full-leather interior with Porsche logo embossed on all head restraints as well as interior carbon accents. Interior styling in a black/creme color combination is making its debut in the Cayenne Turbo S.
