2013 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S Preview

The latest generation of the potent Porsche Cayenne Turbo S has been revealed, with the new model packing the same 550-horsepower twin-turbo V-8 as the Panamera Turbo S. This means you’ll be able to propel the big SUV from 0-60 mph in just 4.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 175 mph--0.1 seconds and 3 mph faster, respectively, than the Cayenne Turbo.

The gain of 50 horsepower over the Cayenne Turbo’s 500-horsepower rating is joined by an extra 37 pound-feet of torque, bringing the Cayenne Turbo S’ total twisting force to 553 pound-feet. This is brought about by a less restrictive inlet manifold, more boost pressure from the turbochargers, remapping of the 4.8-liter engine’s ECU, as well as other minor tweaks.

However, like with past generations, there’s more to the new Cayenne Turbo S than just brute power. Despite its extra performance, the Cayenne Turbo S is expected to return the same 15/22 mpg city/highway fuel economy rating as the regular Cayenne Turbo.
