Porsche Cayenne Turbo S

The Ultimate Cayenne

You cannot create a sports car without passion, nor can you drive one. A masterclass in technical engineering, the Porsche Cayenne will shatter every pre-conceived notion you have about what an SUV is capable of. This is a vehicle that is built to tackle the daily commute just as well as the Corkscrew at Laguna Seca, one that’s designed for the entire family, yet intended for us driving enthusiasts.

Concept

The sum of all ideas that make up the fascinating appeal of the Cayenne, combined in one model - the new Cayenne Turbo S.Consequently, we've gone all out with regard to one of the original aspects of the Cayenne Turbo S: exclusivity. Elegant, sophisticated. Selected materials wherever you look and feel, from leather and a range of fine woods to carbon. Interior equipment taken to new heights. Talking of which, this has always been the most powerful Cayenne model. Yet our engineers have now succeeded in enhancing its performance still further. From 405 to 419 kW (550 to 570 hp). From adrenalin to even more adrenalin. Simply breathtaking. Thanks to additional technologies fitted as standard, such as Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) and air suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), it offers greater driving dynamics than any other vehicle in this segment. Standing head and shoulders above anything else. The same applies when it comes to safety. Excellent examples of this: the race-proven Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) and LED main headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+), both fitted as standard. Enormous potential wrapped up in an eyepleasing package: the car is more refined, more precise than ever. The sharper front section lending it even greater presence. The result? Maximum appeal for even the most discerning driver. This means that the Cayenne Turbo S remains the ultimate powerhouse in the Cayenne family. With regard to dynamic agility and handling, as well as design and equipment. It is a clear statement. For the road. For giving it your all. And achieving it all.

Drive

An enduring Porsche principle: maximum performance. Uncompromisingly embodied by the new Cayenne Turbo S. At its heart, a 4.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. An output of 419 kW (570 hp) is complemented by maximum torque of 800 Nm - between 2,500 and 4,000 rpm. 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 284 km/h. The figures alone are enough to set your pulse racing. Not to mention the driving experience itself. However, superlative performance is not expressed in power alone, but also in efficiency levels. These are impressively high thanks to technologies such as VarioCam Plus, charge-air cooling, the auto start/stop function and direct fuel injection (DFI). This injects fuel directly into the combustion chamber with millisecond precision - designed for an optimum air/fuel mix and enhanced combustion. Active air flaps ensure optimised aerodynamics - thereby boosting fuel economy. The fuel consumption figures for this vehicle class are therefore moderate. 11.5 l/100 km (combined), despite the increase in output. Power is transmitted to the road with precision by Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive. This helps to ensure optimum distribution of force in any situation - for greater traction and driving dynamics. Fitted as standard, 8-speed Tiptronic S translates this power into phenomenal drive. Fast, sporty gear changes are enabled by the two gearshift paddles on the standard multifunction sports steering wheel derived from the 918 Spyder super sports car.

Chassis

Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC). PDCC is an active anti-roll system that anticipates and reduces lateral body movement when cornering. In addition, it minimises lateral sway of the vehicle on rippled road surfaces.

Comfort

Comfort seats (8-way) Offering excellent long-distance comfort and intuitive operation, the comfort seats feature 8-way electric adjustment including fore/aft, height and squab/backrest angle settings. Comfort seats with comfort memory package (14-way) In addition to 8-way electric adjustment, these comfort seats feature a comfort memory package offering adjustment of the lumbar supports, squab length and steering column. It also stores individual seat settings including lumbar supports for both driver and front passenger as well as steering wheel and exterior mirror preferences. Adaptive sports seats with comfort memory package (18-way) Taking comfort and sports performance to a whole new level, the adaptive sports seats with comfort memory package feature higher, more contoured side bolsters that are electrically adjustable. Thanks to 18-way power adjustment, the settings can be adapted even more specifically to your individual requirements, e.g. by storing your steering wheel and exterior mirror preferences. Rear seats The best day for driving a sports car: every day. And this is made even more appealing by the space and versatility offered by the Cayenne. For added comfort, the seats are available with optional ventilation, even in the rear. The rear bench is based on the same design as the front comfort or sports seats and offers generous space for up to three adult passengers. For added practicality, the bench features fore/aft adjustment of 160 mm and a 40/20/40 split-folding facility. The flexible centre section folds down to create a load-through facility for longer items such as the optional ski bag. It also features a folding armrest. The process is quite simple: unlock and fold down. The rear seat backrest can be adjusted by up to 6 degrees: 3 degrees forward of the starting position and 3 degrees back.
