Porsche powers into Detroit with 2016 Cayenne Turbo S

Porsche has taken the wraps off the 2016 Cayenne Turbo S at this year’s NAIAS edition in Detroit. It serves as the flagship variant of the SUV and comes with an uprated V8 bi-turbo 4.8-liter engine that now generates an extra 20 HP (15 kW) & 50 Nm (37 lb-ft) which means the motor is now capable of producing no less than 570 HP (419 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. As a result of the added oomph, the high-performance SUV is now 0.4 seconds faster in the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) which now takes 4.1 seconds before topping out at 176 mph (284 km/h).

Porsche says the 2016 Cayenne Turbo S has managed to do a full lap of the Nurburgring Nordschleife in 7:59.74 which is an impressive performance for a vehicle of this type. The 2016 Cayenne Turbo S comes with an active all-wheel drive traction control management system which sends the engine’s output primarily to the rear wheels but when necessary some of the power goes to the front axle.
