All-New 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Matches 911 GT3
A few days backs, the third Generation Porsche 2018 Cayenne came out, but now, at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, Porsche made it even better by launching the all new swanky 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo.
Engine Power and the Sport Chrono Package in the 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo
The latest 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo will be the flagship model of the Porsche’s entire SUV line-up for now and thanks to its 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine, it develops 550 horsepower.
This points to a difference of 30 more horsepower as compared to its predecessor, with the torque also making a jump to reach 770 Nm at 1,960 RPM.
Armed with the latest eight-speed automatic transmission, the Cayenne Turbo can do 0-100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds if you input the Sport Chrono Package. This powerful combination makes the Cayenne Turbo a match to the Porsche’s 500 horsepower 911 GT3, although, even the standard time of 4.1s to reach 0-100 km/h isn’t too shabby, especially when the car’s top speed is 286 km/h.
Active Roof Spoiler Helps you Break Early!
Porsche has claimed that the 2018 Cayenne Turbo is the first SUV to have an active roof spoiler. It’s being said that the active roof spoiler will help in adding downforce over the car’s rear axle and additionally, shorten the stopping distance when it’s in the airbrake mode. This will be useful for stopping two metres before while the car’s going at 250km/h and you feel the need to brake.
The third-gen Cayenne platform also comes with staggered wheels, tires that have wider rear rubber, self-levelling three-chamber air suspension, as well as an optional kit in the form of new carbon ceramic brakes.
Some standard items in the car are cast iron discs, which have been coated with tungsten carbide layer for resisting wear and reducing the brake dust, apart from being aesthetically pleasing with a shiny mirror finish.
A Cayenne Turbo has 21-inch wheels as standard along with a unique front end, making it easier to identify. Also unique to Turbo are the twin tailpipes and a gaping air intake.
The new 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo has been made available now and comes with a starting price of AED 554,300.
