If you want the best luxury SUV ever created, it won’t take a lot of research to learn it’s a Porsche product. Every car Porsche makes winds up being a leader in its class. The 911 is the definitive sports car, and the Panamera is the unrivaled fast executive saloon leader. But if you want a big luxurious SUV, turn to the Porsche Cayenne. Not just any Cayenne, though, but the most powerful one: the Turbo.
Slotting just beneath the full-fledged Turbo S, the “base” Turbo offers 520 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 520 lb-ft of torque at just 2250 rpm. How have they achieved this? With a twin-turbocharged V8, of course. It’s the company’s well-known 4.4-liter V8, strapped with a pair of turbochargers, using the latest fuel injection technology.
The Porsche Cayenne Turbo Is the Best Performing SUV Out There
Forget being fast for an SUV, the Cayenne Turbo is fast—full stop. How does a sprint to 60 mph in less than five seconds sound? We guarantee it’s even more amazing in real life than it is on paper. You’re simply not ready for the brutal acceleration. Nothing this large with such a high seating position should drive like a sports car, and yet the Cayenne does.
Approach a sharp corner, and it’s even more impressive. It corners like it is on rails, with no body roll, instilling total confidence in your driving.
