2017 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Review

Announced at the latest Detroit Motor Show is the 2017 Porsche Cayenne Turbo. This is quite an announcement as the Cayenne is one of the more popular models that Porsche has produced and is the top ranging vehicle that they have in their lineup. This new model comes to us with updated twin-turbo V-8 engine that does not only create a massive roar but it also delivers the specs to support its claims.

The original model was introduced back in 2002 and was an expanded and better version of the Porsche Cayenne model. It is a premier vehicle which started combining high-performance and speed with the road presence and a stance of an SUV vehicle. This is something that people did not believe could go together at the time but Porsche managed to make it work and as a result we get a car that today always stands out in front of its competitors.

The 2017 Porsche Cayenne Turbo brings the same things and updates it which still makes it a top ranging vehicle compared to what the fans had to offer it. Porsche makes a slew of sports cars and although they claim that each and every one of them is a genuine sports car it does not have to be the case. With the Cayenne Turbo, there is no absolute way of anybody claiming that the things can go the other way around.

This model proves its track-orientated potential by producing  0-60 mph acceleration in 3.8 seconds which was what the car was able to make with its initial testing done at Nurburgring. If you want to find out more stats and specs about the car, read the review and learn when the release date is bound to come.

Exterior

The design of the 2017 Porsche Cayenne Turbo is as awesome as you could expect it to be. It actually comes with all of the features you would expect from a car of this reputation. Porsche brings in all the details that made this car great and recognizable and updates them with a few new finishes brought to this vehicle. Actually you will notice more sporty flair from the exterior of the car but the biggest attention has been made with the introduction of the 21-inch 911 Turbo style wheels which are a great touch for the car. The fender wells are added to a lower body and provide a menacing intent impression from it.

A standard feature now are the LED headlights which include Porsche’s Dynamic Light System Plus and have the ability to dynamically adjust beam intensity and even range as they are able to detect oncoming traffic. The front end of the car comes with a high-gloss black surround that is placed around the air-inlets which are positioned under the door mirrors. The rear roof spoiler and wheel arch moldings actually have the same color as the overall paint of the car. There are some interesting options offered here like a panoramic roof system, stainless steel skid plates and an understated body kit.

Interior

The interior of the 2017 Porsche Cayenne Turbo has all the expected trimmings on the inside. In fact it is what you get when you have a six figure car in front of you and you can appreciate all the added features it comes with. The cabin incorporates abundant leather, wood, aluminum and Alcantara but also adds quite a healthy dose of carbon fiber which lets us actually know that this is a very powerful car we are dealing with.

The cabin adds all sorts of electronic driving aides which helps you control the car better. Added are lane change assist, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning. And finally we get to a black/crème color combo which is one of the 10 available paint settings that come available for you.

Engine specs

As the competition for the 2017 Porsche Cayenne Turbo is high and there are many models that are trying to get ahead in this segment, the 2017 update needed to add some pep in its output. That is why there was more juice added to the 4.8-liter, twin-turbo V-8 petrol engine as it now features 20 ponies and 37 pound-feet more. This gives us a total of 570 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque which actually account for the range topping 3.8 seconds of acceleration to each 0-60 mph and a top speed preference of  176 mph. The Cayenne Turbo has all sorts of electronic equipment added with the Porsche Composite Ceramic Brakes taking the top adding 16.5-inch diameter rotors and 10 piston-calipers. You also get Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control and Porsche Torque Vectroing Plus.
