Atlanta, April 21, 2008 - The new 2009 Cayenne Turbo S is Porsche’s response to the enormous demand, especially in the emerging markets of Eastern Europe and Asia, for premium brand vehicles with exclusive heritage and performance. With a 4.8 liter twin turbocharged V8 engine that delivers 550 hp, this latest Porsche SUV is the most powerful Cayenne ever produced. Remarkably, even with a 10% horsepower increase over the Cayenne Turbo, the new Cayenne Turbo S shares the identical mileage figures (based on European Operating Cycle).
The new Cayenne Turbo S is instantly recognizable with its 21 inch alloy wheels that are housed in wheel arches painted to match the exterior color, and dual-twin sports tailpipes in brushed aluminum. Additionally, the air intake grilles and wheel arch extensions are painted the same color as the Cayenne’s body. Lava Gray Metallic, a new color that is rich yet understated, will be offered as an exclusive option for the Cayenne Turbo S.
The Cayenne Turbo S comes standard with air suspension, self-leveling and ride-height control, along with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM). This technology combined with the standard Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) and Servotronic speed- sensitive variable power steering allows the driver to enjoy the additional horsepower while still being rewarded with the handling and performance characteristics that you can only find in a Porsche SUV.
The Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) system currently offered only on sports cars will be available on all 2009 Cayenne S, GTS, Turbo and Turbo S models in conjunction with 20’’ or larger wheels. PCCB braking power is provided by six piston calipers applied to 16.4 inch ceramic discs in the front and four piston calipers and 14.56 inch discs in the rear.
As should be expected, the standard interior of the top-of-the range Turbo S is equipped with high-end features such as sport seats with memory, carbon trim on the dashboard and door, leather interior in exclusive color combinations (Black/Havanna and Black/Steel Grey), plus a leather steering wheel with padded rim.
The Turbo S will be available in the United States in August and pricing will be announced in the near future.
