Porsche Cayenne Turbo S released

Porsche has released the new Cayenne Turbo S, which produces 10% more horse-power from its twin-turbocharged engine than the standard Turbo.

With 550hp the new Turbo S can accelerate faster and reach a higher top speed than the 500hp Cayenne Turbo.

At its top speed of 175mph it travels 2mph faster than the Turbo and it accelerates from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds, beating the standard model by two seconds.

The five-seater Turbo S features advanced active chassis dynamics that allow its driving performance to surpass that of many sports cars, while the four-wheel drive off-road capability, ride comfort and superior towing power of the Cayenne range remain.

Despite its enhanced engine power, the Turbo S is as fuel-efficient as the Turbo, with an NEDC fuel consumption of 24.6 mpg.
