Porsche Cayenne Turbo: Faster, lighter, greener

Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Nice review here of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

The new Cayenne is 180kg lighter thanks to the use of Aluminium for the doors, boot and bonnet. It also has stop-start technology and an eight-speed gearbox that help it achieve a staggering CO2 rating of 270g/km and a combined fuel consumption figure of 24.6mpg.

What’s it like to drive?

Astonishing. The level of grip it finds and the body control it displays mean that it’s actually quite a violent experience flinging a Cayenne turbo down the road. Turn-in is sharper and more instant than it has any right to be and there simply isn’t any roll. In full Sport damper mode it’s actually too harsh, so I’d recommend winding it back to ‘Normal’ just to take the edge off the ride. The steering is very accurate, although feel is largely absent.
