- Porsche unveils the Cayenne Turbo S at this year's Detroit Auto Show
- 4.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 now producing 550 horsepower
- Capable of a 0-60 time in 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 175 MPH
Porsche - infamous for exclusivity - has taken its flagship SUV, the Cayenne Turbo, and made it that much more exclusive with a new model called the 2014 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. Porsche took its already outrageous high-speed family hauler and added more power, distinguishing features, and a higher sticker price.
Porsche's engineers reworked its 4.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 and found room for 50 more horsepower, upping the total output to 550 horsepower. The newfound power from the high-octane V8 will push the Cayenne Turbo S from 0-60 in 4.3 seconds and onto a top-speed of 175, which is mind boggling for a family SUV.
To keep the family safe at top speed, Porsche fitted the Cayenne Turbo S with sever high-tech safety features, including: Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus), and the Sport Chrono package.
On the outside, the Turbo S stands out from the crowd with unique front air intakes and a rearview mirror that has been painted high-gloss black. The wheels, too, have been changed. Porsche bolted on the 21-inch 911 Turbo II wheels, which have been painted with a bright-color Porsche badge and a high-gloss black accent. These gorgeous new wheels are exclusive to the 2014 Cayenne Turbo S model.
The 2014 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S will hit Porsche showrooms in the Spring of 2013 and will start at $146,000, which does not include the $975 destination charge.
What it means to you: For the family who has everything, Porsche has raised the bar.
