Porsche Cayenne Turbo S: Road test report

Porsche Cayenne Turbo S
Nice road test report here with the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S.

With 550 hp, the Cayenne Turbo S accelerates to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds and to 100 in 10.8. On a tight road, the rate with which it builds speed is terrifying; after just 30 feet, the Turbo S feels like it’s going 20 mph or so faster than its actual, already eye-bulging velocity. With the accelerator pinned, the air cascading from the tailpipes sounds like opening a window in a 747 at cruising speed.

For guys who grenade the clutch in their 911 Turbo while bracket racing, we recommend subbing in this Cayenne: All-wheel drive and an automatic transmission will have you running 12.9s at 110 mph as regularly as CARB ignores reality. Passing on two-lanes is a riot, and the jackass who accelerates when you pull out to overtake him better be commuting in an F-15 if he hopes to block you—the Cayenne’s 50-to-70-mph time of 3.3 seconds is just one tick behind that of Cadillac’s 556-hp CTS-V automatic.
