They can allow for incredible traction off the line, meaning even a big, heavy lump of a vehicle like the new Porsche Cayenne can hit 62mph from rest in exactly the same time as a manual-equipped 911 GT3. However, the company had reserved the best and the powerful version of its SUV for the Frankfurt Motor Show. Following the release of the early details about the new Cayenne last month, Porsche has now unveiled the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo, which is basically the 911 of SUVs.

Active chassis with three-chamber air suspension and mixed tires The new lightweight chassis of the Cayenne Turbo combines the best of three worlds: the precision of a sports auto, the comfort of a sedan and the adaptability of an off-road vehicle. For more stopping power, carbon ceramic brakes are available. The SUV employs a 550-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine that makes 567 pounds-feet of torque, running through a new eight-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive. Propelling 0-60 miles per hour in 3.7-seconds, when equipped with the Sport Chrono Package, and reaching a top speed of 177-mph makes this Cayenne Turbo faster than the outgoing 2018 Cayenne Turbo S. The new Turbo sprints to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds (3.9 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package) and reaches a top speed of 286 km/h. At night, the new Turbo sets itself apart from other Cayenne models with its double-row front light modules. Three-chamber adaptive dampers come as standard, while a 48-volt electrical subsystem powers active roll stabilisation and (optional) rear-wheel steering. Yes, it's meant to be taken off-road too! The spoiler is completely functional; it increases downforce on the rear axle and also functions as an air brake to shorten braking distances. A new Porsche Surface Coated Brake process covers the Cayenne Turbo's cast-iron brake rotors with a layer of tungsten carbide to increase performance and resistance to wear, all while reducing brake dust. While the silhouette remains the same and the SUV looks much leaner, there are new LED headlamps that are a part of the automaker dynamic light system. The Turbo adds a unique steering wheel, sportier seats with 18-way adjustability, and a standard-fit 710 watt Bose sound system.
