New top model in the Cayenne model range
Porsche Introduces New Cayenne Turbo S with 550 hp
Atlanta. The Porsche Cayenne range is now expanded to include a Turbo
S model with 550 hp, an increase of 50 hp from the Cayenne Turbo. The
new Cayenne Turbo S sport utility vehicle employs advanced active
chassis technologies. These technologies allow it to surpass the
driving performance of many sports cars, while preserving the off-road
capability, ride comfort and towing ability typical of the Cayenne.
In addition to an increase of 50 horsepower compared to the Cayenne
Turbo, the Cayenne Turbo S also benefits from increased engine torque,
which is boosted from 516 to 553 pound-feet. This translates into
faster acceleration and a higher top speed. The sprint from zero to 60
mph now takes just 4.3 seconds (-0.1 seconds), and the Cayenne Turbo S
accelerates to a top track speed of 175 mph (+ 3 mph).
The Cayenne Turbo S is equipped for maximum dynamic performance.
Accordingly, it incorporates chassis and drivetrain technologies which
are optional on the Cayenne Turbo. More specifically, Porsche Dynamic
Chassis Control (PDCC), Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus), and
Power Steering Plus are now standard, in addition to the air
suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which is
already standard on the Cayenne Turbo. PDCC allows for even flatter
cornering, improving agility and ride comfort. PTV Plus adds torque
vectoring at the rear wheels together with an electronically
controlled rear differential lock, which improves traction and
therefore offers more agility in a wide range of driving situations.
The new Cayenne Turbo S is also equipped with the Sport Chrono package
as standard, which includes an analog and digital timer located at the
center of the dashboard. The performance display informs the occupants
about the total driving time, lap distance covered so far and
individual lap times. It also shows latitudinal and longitudinal
acceleration via the TFT display in the instrument cluster.
The exterior of the Cayenne Turbo S lives up to the high standards of
a top model. The front air intakes and rear view mirror trim are
painted in high-gloss black. The standard 21-inch 911 Turbo II wheels
with colored Porsche badges are exclusively tailored for the Cayenne
Turbo S; their inside surfaces are painted in high-gloss black. The
wheel arch extensions and rear spoiler separation edge are painted in
exterior color. The model also features dual twin-tube sport tailpipes
in polished Aluminum.
Porsche designers created an exclusive two-tone leather interior
package that is available in either Black/Carrera Red or Black/Luxor
Beige combinations. They feature an exclusive combination of
contrasting colors and pieces that are further accented by deviated
stitching throughout. Front and rear seats feature the Porsche Crest
embossed on the headrests while the roof is covered in Alcantara® from
front to rear. The instrument panel, door, and center console trim
showcase the standard Carbon Fiber interior package that further
complements the exclusive interior.
The Cayenne Turbo S is scheduled to go on sale in the spring of 2013
and is priced from $146,000 not including a $975 destination charge.
