Frankfurt 2017: Turbo Version of the New Porsche Cayenne Debuts

Share

Porsche knows chemistry. Take an engine from the Porsche Panamera Turbo that can reach 150 miles per hour (ask me how I know), and add the third-generation Cayenne. In addition, there are 5 different modes for tarmac and off-road driving on the Cayenne Turbo.

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo is no sleeper over the standard version and gets distinctive visual upgrades apart from the Turbo badge.

The centre was established on August 1, 1997 and now operates under the management of QAF Brunei Sdn Bhd located in the Beribi Light Industrial Area.

An advanced new chassis with rear-wheel steering, electronic roll stabilisation via a new 48-volt electrical system, torque vectoring and an air suspension that uses three chambers on each spring strut for faster reactions is claimed to enhance the Cayenne Turbo's handling and off-road prowess.

Putting this prodigious power to the ground is a rear-biased all-wheel drive system and massive tyres measuring 285/40 front and 315/35 rear wrapped around 21-inch wheels. Porsche says the new V8 makes 550 horsepower and 567 lb-ft of torque - 30 more horsepower and 14 extra lbs of twist than the outgoing Cayenne Turbo and its 4.8-liter twin-turbo V8. A 710-watt Bose audio system is standard, with 18-way adjustable heated seats and a multi-function sports steering joining it on the list of standard features. At the same time, its everyday suitability in terms of parking and turning manoeuvres is improved, as is the comfort level. Depending on the position, this optimizes efficiency, increases downforce on the rear axle and, in the airbrake position, shortens the braking distance from higher speeds.

Aerodynamic bragging rights fall to the adaptive roof spoiler, though. As a result, if you brake hard from 155mph, you'll stop anything up to two metres sooner. The tungsten carbide layer applied to the steel discs increases braking performance and resistance to wear while reducing the amount of brake dust at the same time, meaning less dirt on the rims. Here's everything you need to know about the most powerful Porsche SUV on sale. In 2016, Porsche sold an unprecedented 7,061 units in Canada, up 10% over the prior year.
