2013 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S revealed

Porsche has released details of its flagship SUV model, with the introduction of the 2013 Cayenne Turbo S.

Propelled by a virtually identical version of the Cayenne Turbo’s 4.8-litre, eight-cylinder engine, the S features uprated turbochargers fitted with titanium-aluminium turbine wheels and a remapped engine control unit, which sees output rise from 368 kW (500 hp) and 700 Nm of torque to 405 kW (550 hp) and 750 Nm, allowing a 0-100 km/h time of 4.5 seconds a top speed of 283 km/h. Impressively, the fuel consumption figure of 11.5 litres per 100 kilometres matches that of the Turbo model.

Standard equipment carried over from the Cayenne Turbo includes air suspension with PASM active damping, PDCC active anti-roll bars, and the PTV Plus torque vectoring system, which varies the distribution of torque, along with electronic differential lock. The Sport Chrono package also comes as standard.

Visually, the headlight housings, air inlets and lower mirror casings have been painted in high-gloss black, matching the faces of the new 21-inch alloy wheels, while the cabin can be trimmed in a choice of bi-colour leather packages, along with carbon fibre inlays.

Deliveries begin in January, with prices starting at €151,702.
