The all-new 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo has made its official debut in Frankfurt, landing with a new 550 horsepower 4.0-liter V8 under the hood. The German automaker has now revealed the new flagship 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo with mind blowing levels that can make some sports cars sweat. That marks an improvement of 30 hp and 14 lb-ft over the previous model, which packed a twin-turbo 4.8-liter V-8. Paired with a new eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, it will move this third-generation Cayenne from 0-62 miles per hour in 3.9 seconds and onto an impressive top speed of 177 miles per hour. The Cayenne Turbo shoots to 60 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds (if it wears the optional Sport Chrono Package), whereas the Panamera Turbo does the deed in 3.6 seconds in base form, or 3.4 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package. The side view is characterized by standard 21-inch Turbo wheels specially reserved for the top model, in widened wheel arches with painted wheel arch trims. The Turbo also receives LED headlights with projector lamps arranged in groups of four, a design theme found on only the highest-performance Porsche models.
Sales for the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo have already commenced in Europe with the order books open and the SUV priced at 138,850 Euros. 18-way sport seats, seatbacks with integrated headrests and 710-watt BOSE Surround Sound System will come standard.
Its new three-chamber air suspension features six selectable height levels, which are controlled via five new driving programs for road journeys and off-road journeys. Further adding to its handling prowess are rear steering, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control roll stabilization, and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus systems. For more stopping power, carbon ceramic brakes are available. The spoiler has the ability to optimize efficiency, increase downforce on the rear axle and even shorten braking distances when it's in the airbrake position. The Cayenne Turbo's steel brake discs are coated with tungsten carbide which increases braking performance, minimizes wear, and reduces brake dust.
