The 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo took its place at the top of the brand’s model line at the 67th Frankfurt International Motor Show.
The new model from the third-generation Cayenne range is once again raising the bar for sporty performance in the segment.
Its twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine delivers 550 hp and 567 lb/ft of torque.
The combination of innovations including a three-chamber air suspension, staggered tire sizes and new high-performance Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB) technology result in improved driving dynamics.
With additional options, such as rear-axle steering and electric roll stabilization with a 48-volt system, the SUV achieves the driving characteristics of a sports car.
The new Cayenne Turbo accelerates from 0-60 mph in as little as 3.7 seconds when equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package toward a top track speed of 177 mph, representing gains over the previous-generation Cayenne Turbo S.
With an exclusive front end and the LED main headlights of the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), the Cayenne Turbo has a dominant appearance.
At night, the new Turbo sets itself apart from other Cayenne models with its double-row front light modules. Widened wheel arches with painted trim and special 21-inch wheels reserved for the Cayenne Turbo characterize the side view. Turbo-specific twin tailpipes distinguish this model from its six-cylinder siblings.
With six selectable height levels, the ground clearance can be manually adjusted to suit the off-road terrain.
These are also actively controlled via five new driving programs for on- and off-road use. The default setting is the on-road program. Four other modes activate the conditioning for mild off-road terrain: Mud, Gravel, Sand, or Rocks.
The drive mode, chassis settings, and differential locks can be selected to adapt to the relevant setting.
The new Cayenne Turbo integrates an adaptive roof spoiler as a component of its active aerodynamics.
