Porsche Centres across India
are now taking orders for the third generation of the Cayenne Turbo, which will
arrive in showrooms from June 2018 onwards. The luxury SUV comes with an increased
output of 550 hp. The car is known for its sports car kind of handling and a touring
car kind of comfort, while having great off-road capabilities. The brand’s
completely redeveloped SUV also boasts intelligent lightweight construction, a
new engine, and smart assistance systems.
A four-litre V8 biturbo engine
which delivers 550 hp and 770 Nm of torque, propels the Turbo to 100 km/h from
a complete standstill in just 4.1 seconds (3.9 seconds with Sports Chrono) –
surpassing even the previous Cayenne Turbo S in this respect. The Cayenne Turbo
reaches a top speed of 286 km/h and as is characteristic for the new generation
of engines, the exhaust turbochargers are arranged inside the cylinder V, in
the “central turbo layout”.
The shortened exhaust branches
between the combustion chambers and the turbochargers mean that the engine is
especially responsive, while the central turbo layout results in significantly
improved power delivery. Another advantage is the compact construction of the
engine allowing for a lowered engine mounting position, which has a positive
effect on driving dynamics: a lowered centre of gravity and improved cornering
The new Cayenne Turbo is the
first SUV to have an adaptive roof spoiler as a component of its active
aerodynamics. Depending on the position of the spoiler, this optimises
efficiency, increases downforce on the rear axle and, in the airbrake position,
shortens the braking distance needed from higher speeds. As a result, at full
braking from 250 km/h, the SUV comes to a stop up to two metres earlier. The
aerodynamic system therefore complements the new Porsche Surface Coated Brakes
(PSCB), which are standard.
Rear-axle steering taken from
the 911, a new three-chamber air suspension and active roll stabilisation also add
to the sportier driving performance, enhanced safety and driving comfort of the
Turbo. Going off-road is also now easier, with five pre-programmed drive and
chassis modes available, depending on the terrain.
Visually, the Cayenne Turbo
has an appearance that is both dominant and independent. A unique front end
with LED headlights, standard 21-inch Turbo wheels, in widened wheel arches
with painted trims, and twin tailpipes specific to the Turbo characterise the
top-of-the-range model. Inside, virtually all the vehicle functions of the
fully networked SUV can be displayed and operated using the high-resolution
display and touchscreen of the Porsche Advanced Cockpit. Among them, for
example, is the BOSE Surround Sound System with 710 watts, fitted as standard.
Inside, 18-way sport seats, integrated headrests and the multifunction sports
steering wheel in an exclusive Turbo design reflect the model’s sports car
