Due to the substantial demand for a sports style SUV that comes equipped with exceptional physical handling dynamics, the 2009 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S has been released. Considered as the mightiest of the Cayenne models, it is driven by its big 4.8-liter V8 engine that comes with a twin turbo forced induction that gives 550 hp as well as 553 lb-ft of torque.
Looking at it from its exterior, you could identify it with its 21-inch alloy wheels that is beautifully housed in painted wheel arches and a sports exhaust system which has four tail pipes constructed using aluminum investment casting. Its wheel arches and air intake grills are all painted the same hue and shade as its body. It is also available in the simple yet stylish lava gray metallic paint, which is an exclusive paint option to the Turbo S.
Having a character like no other, this new top-of-the range Cayenne Turbo S is truly a thing of comfort and beauty as is shown with: its great interior seating; the front sports seat that has the Comfort Memory Package; the rear seating built with individual seat contours; leather upholstery that comes in two dual-color combinations exclusive to the Turbo S once again; aluminum door panels that shows the name plate; and the leather steering wheel that has the padded center.
Just like all the other Cayenne models, the Turbo S is also quite the cool and tech-savvy SUV made for those people who are looking for the car that would able to conform to today’s most advanced technologies as it has the option to have voice actuation complete with full word recognition to use for navigation system destinations, a universal audio interface that comes with MP3 connection, a cell phone link-up through the use of Bluetooth as well as a TV module for use in both digital and analog terrestrial signals. It also comes with a BOSE Surround Sound System complete with 14 speakers features that have an enhanced 410-watt output for the music-lover in all of us. It is also capable of reproducing music that are from video and audio DVDs that are in a 5.1 Surround Format.
If you would be comparing it to the Turbo model, the Cayenne Turbo S is not all that different as far as appearance is concerned. Aside from the bigger rims and wider fender flames, the look does not totally scream out that it is a whole different vehicle. However, it has some new functional features including a remapped engine computer, a new exhaust system and different air intakes. These features are actually more than enough to drive the Turbo S from 0 to 60 mph in a remarkable period of just 4.8 seconds. Top speed is just as outstanding at 174 mph.
Aside from the improvements in performance, the maximum torque has also been increased from 700 Nm to 750 Nm as long as it is within the engine speed range of between 2,250 rpm to around 4,500 rpm.
With all its power and might, it is only apt that Porsche offers ceramic composite brakes for this SUV wonder. This would make sure that there would be no people who would be zooming by without exceptional brakes.
