Together with the conventional third-generation models of its large SUV, Porsche presents at the Frankfurt Motor Show the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo, which according to the brand itself is "911 more than ever." It has 30 hp more than before and solutions never seen in a car. It will be available later this year, although there is still no price for our market.
The Cayenne Turbo 2018 uses a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo 550 hp and 770 Nm (20 Nm more than before). Thanks to the eight-cylinder numbers, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.1 seconds (3.9 seconds with the Sport Chrono package) and reaches a top speed of 286 km / h, with an average approved consumption of between 11.7 and 11.9 liters per hundred kilometers.
To control such brute force, the Cayenne Turbo uses an air suspension with adaptive shock absorbers (PASM) of variable hardness, whose height can also be adjusted in six different levels, either by driving modes or manually. The tires have dimensions 285/40 R21 front and 315/35 R21 rear.
The model also has an anti-roll system of the body, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV +) and braking system with steel discs coated with tungsten carbide (PSCB), as well as directional rear axle and optional carboceramic brakes. Porsche claims to have also improved maneuverability and comfort level.
An important innovation for the Turbo 2018 is that it is the first car of its kind to equip an active roof spoiler as part of its active aerodynamics systems. In addition to increasing the aerodynamic load of the rear axle, this device can also act as an air brake. In fact, it stopped from 250 km / h up to three meters earlier thanks to this spoiler.
Aesthetically, it features 21-inch Turbo tires, widened wheel arches, version-specific exhaust dual outputs, or additional body-colored trim elements. Inside, it has an improved design and new features, as well as larger screen, 710-watt Bose Surround system (standard), sports seats with 18 settings or Turbo-specific steering wheel, heated also.
