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

Two weeks after the third-generation 2019 Porsche Cayenne received its world premiere, the German automaker further grows the model lineup with the presentation of the new Turbo version of its large SUV at the 2017 International Motor Show Germany in Frankfurt. 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. Of course, that 0-60 time only happens when the new Cayenne is equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package.

The Cayenne is becoming an ever-closer cousin to the 911 sports auto, and that is even more the case with the Cayenne Turbo, whose enhanced performance capabilities are based in part on a new, more-lightweight chassis as well as on innovative technologies like active aerodynamics (including, for the first time ever on an SUV, an adaptive rear spoiler), three-chamber air suspension, different-sized tires (285/40 front and 315/35 rear) and new high-performance brakes, not to mention available rear-axle steering.

It features an active chassis with a three-chamber air suspension with six selectable height levels, as well as the active shock-absorber system PASM. Want even more performance? 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.




At night, the new Turbo sets itself apart from other Cayenne models with its double-row front light modules.

And if you're anxious about stopping two tonnes of SUV from all that speed, Porsche has developed a new Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB). There also newly standard 18-way sport seats, as well. 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. Engineers tell vehicle it'll lop two metres off the stopping distance from 155mph. As always with Porsche, carbon ceramic brakes are available as an option. The new Cayenne Turbo is the first SUV to feature an adaptive roof spoiler as a component of its aerodynamics. In 2016, Porsche sold an unprecedented 7,061 units in Canada, up 10% over the prior year.
