IAA Frankfurt 2017: Porsche Cayenne

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

You're looking at the fastest Porsche SUV yet - the new 2018 model year Cayenne Turbo, freshly unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show. Complemented by optional rear-axle steering, the electric Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) roll stabilisation connected to a 48-volt vehicle electrical system and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV+), the new Cayenne Turbo achieves the driving dynamics of a sports auto.

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo is powered by a 4.0L biturbo V8 that generates 550 horsepower (30 more than before) and 568 lb-ft of torque.

The boosted reserves are channelled through a new eight-speed torque converter-equipped automatic gearbox and electro-hydraulic four-wheel drive system, with Porsche claiming a 0-100km/h time of just 3.9sec in combination with the new SUV's optional Sport Chrono Package. They are also actively controlled via five new driving programs for road journeys and off-road journeys. Want even more performance? Three-chamber adaptive dampers come as standard, while a 48-volt electrical subsystem powers active roll stabilisation and (optional) rear-wheel steering. Yep, the Cayenne has an adaptive rear spoiler - the first time such a thing has been fitted on an SUV according to Porsche - and when it's not adding downforce or position to increase efficiency, it's able to tilt up and increase drag considerably. Other changes include the body-color door trims and rear apron.

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. Engineers tell auto it'll lop two metres off the stopping distance from 155mph. Audio is provided by a 710-watt BOSE surround sound system, comfort and exhilaration by the 18-way adaptable sport front seats with integrated headrests that call to mind the 911 as well as an exclusively designed multifunction steering wheel. For more stopping power, carbon ceramic brakes are available. The Cayenne Turbo's steel brake discs are coated with tungsten carbide which increases braking performance, minimizes wear, and reduces brake dust. USA deliveries are expected in fall 2018 (which is why it will be sold as a 2019 model), with prices starting at $124,600 plus a $1,050 processing and delivery fee.
