Porsche India has opened the orderbook for its 3rd gen Cayenne Turbo, which will find its way to showrooms from June 2018 onward. The four-litre V8 biturbo engine delivers 550 hp of power and 770 Nm of torque, and goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds, going even faster at 3.9 seconds with Sports Chrono, which is faster that the earlier Cayenne Turbo S. Top speed is pegged at 286 km/h.
Pavan Shetty, Director, Porsche India said, “The new Cayenne Turbo represents the start of an exciting introduction phase for us, with the Cayenne and Cayenne E-Hybrid also set to arrive in showrooms later this year. The Cayenne has been one of our most popular models to-date and I am sure that the third generation, which offers greater versatility and more performance than ever before will continue the success story, starting with the Turbo derivative. It is a highly anticipated model and as such we are delighted to offer customers the opportunity to order the latest generation of Porsche’s flagship SUV in India.”
New gen Porsche engines have the exhaust turbochargers arranged inside cylinder V (central turbo layout for improved power delivery). Shorter exhaust branches between combustion chambers and turbochargers equate to an especially responsive engine. The compact setup facilitates a lower engine mounting position, which thereby lowers centre of gravity.
Cayenne Turbo exterior – LED headlights, 21-inch Turbo wheels, widened wheel arches with painted trims, twin tailpipes. Interior – High-res display and touchscreen of Porsche Advanced Cockpit, 710 watts Bose Surround Sound System as standard, 18-way sport seats with integrated headrests, and multifunction sports steering wheel.
Cayenne Turbo borrows a rear-axle steering taken from 911. The three-chamber air suspension and active roll stabilisation improves sporty driving performance, safety and driving comfort. Drive modes – 5 pre-programmed drive and chassis modes available depending on terrain.
Part of its active aerodynamics, the adaptive roof spoiler’s position shortens braking distance needed at higher speeds. At full braking from 250 km/h, the car stops upto two metres earlier.
