Porsche Cayenne Turbo
The Porsche Cayenne Turbo is a five door, crossover, manufactured by the German auto motive giant Porsche since the year 2002. The second generation Cayenne was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2010 and the first generation Cayenne has been phased out since. The main frame and doors of the Cayenne Turbo are borrowed from the Touareg, which uses the same platform. However, the assembling, tuning and manufacturing of the Cayenne is done by Porsche at its factories. Audi, Porsche and Volkswagen use the same platform for their vehicles, as it saves a lot of cost on research. This cost benefit can be finally transferred to the buyers or can be used for research on technology or other such features.
The Porsche Cayenne Turbo is powered by a powerful 4806 cc (4.8 L, 293.3 cu. in) twin Turbo V8, producing 400 PS (370 kW, 490 hp) @6000 rpm and 700 nm torque at 2250 – 4500 rpm. The Cayenne does a 0 – 60 mph in a blazingly fast 4.9 seconds and unbelievably it has the power to battle Mercedes’ SLS AMG. Porsche shares the engine of Cayenne Turbo with Audi’s Q7 and the Volkswagen Touareg. Cayenne Turbo is the first V8 powered car from Porsche since 1995, after the Porsche 928 was discontinued.
The first thing that is worth noticing in the interior of the Porsche is that it is not as big as an SUV but bigger than most hatch backs in the market. The Cayenne Turbo is a 5 door car and hence there is ample space inside. The car can easily accommodate people over 6 ft height and has a large boot space to hold luggage and other commodities. The steering wheel mounted on the dash board sits pretty and is adjustable, so that people of different heights find it convenient to drive the Cayenne Turbo. The car is rich in technology and has a Bose audio system complete with an LCD screen, a CD player, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity as well as LED lighting and an air conditioner. Overall the interior is posh and it feels good to be sitting inside the Cayenne.
The Porsche Cayenne Turbo is a cross over between a hatch back and an MUV. Hence it has a contemporary design. The engineers at Fiat Corporations Ltd – which owns Porsche – designed the car in such a way that it gets the best aerodynamics possible for a car of such a huge stature as well as lend the car a sports look. The front grille of the Cayenne includes a low range case, adjustable height off road suspension and a locking differential. The car has rampant use of aluminum in its body parts and many of the external shafts are aluminum made to reduce weight. This car desperately needs a diet as it is practically an SUV, with the features and handling capabilities of a wannabe hatch back. The Cayenne Turbo is available in moon shine silver, crystal white and a mid night black color option.
