Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT: Should You Consider Buying It?

Cayenne

The Cayenne is a brilliant car, but it’s not perfect. The engine is too loud, and the ride can feel jittery on some surfaces. In short, it’s not quite as refined as its rivals, Range Rover and Audi. Even so, the Cayenne has always been an impressive piece of kit. The fourth-generation car launched in 2017 with a brand new look and more power than ever before. There are now three engines from which to choose: a 340ps V6 turbo petrol, a 340ps V6 turbo petrol coupe, or - a 631hp twin-turbo V8 petrol. We’ve just driven Porsche’s most extreme version yet, which costs an eye-watering $189,000.

 

Why is the Cayenne so revered?

 

The Cayenne is Porsche’s first SUV, and it has been a runaway success. It has sold more than 2.5m units since it was first produced in 2002, and it remains one of the company’s most lucrative products. The popularity of SUVs is undeniable, but many car companies have struggled to add the significant off-road ability to their cars without, in Porsche’s words, “sacrificing the driving experience.” The Cayenne has always been different. A Porsche SUV is a Porsche SUV, regardless of whether you’re driving through a field or down the motorway. The car has always held its own on road and off, and it remains an incredibly desirable piece of kit. So much so that some owners rarely venture away from the tarmac.

 

So why is the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT so good?

 

There are plenty of reasons to get excited about the new Cayenne, but the most extreme version is the Turbo. It’s designed to be driven hard, it’s designed to be noticed, and it’s designed to be extreme. There are three engines to choose from. It is also the quickest and quickest ever production SUV. Thanks to the standard fit of the Sport Chrono Package, you can go even faster. The top speed is 198 mph, which is impressive for a car of this size and weight. The Turbo is also efficient, thanks to new active grille shutters that close at speed to reduce drag. The active air suspension also has a mode that lowers the car by 10mm at speeds above 70mph to improve aerodynamics and cut fuel consumption by up to 1.3 liters per 100km. It’s also enough to make it the fastest SUV in the world.

 

What makes this car so fast?

 

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT is powered by a beast of an engine. It is a twin-turbocharged V8 that produces a massive 631 hp and 626 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to this incredible power delivery, this SUV can go from 0-60 mph in just 3.1 seconds. What's more, it has a top speed of 190 mph which makes it the fastest SUV ever produced. It also comes with an incredible suspension system and Adaptive Air Suspension with suspension settings that adjust to your driving conditions, ensuring you have the best ride possible. It’s a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 petrol engine that produces a colossal 631hp. This is enough to propel the Turbo engine, which is sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox. This car is monstrous, and it sounds like it too.

 

Is it just about speed?

 

While the Turbo is fast, it’s also a beautifully engineered car. It’s also one that’s well equipped too. There are loads of clever features onboard, including Porsche’s Active Suspension Management system, which can adjust the car’s ride height based on the terrain. Active Suspension can lower the car by up to 40mm, depending on conditions, to improve handling and increase stability at speed. There’s also a mechanical parking brake, which might sound like a retrograde step, but is a nice touch for those who prefer to leave their car in manual mode. The Cayenne Turbo isn’t just about style; it’s also packed with performance. The engine can be mated to a 7-speed PDK dual-clutch or standard manual transmission. There’s also lots of active safety tech to keep you safe, like lane-keeping assistance, adaptive cruise control, and a rear-view camera that turns into a picture-in-picture when you’re reversing. This is a car that is designed to be used hard and often. It’s designed for everyday life too. Despite its extreme nature, it’s a car that is at home almost anywhere.

 

Other things you should know

 

There are two variants of the Turbo. There is the standard car, and there is the Turbo S. The S has more power, more airbags, and more tech, but there’s little to separate the two cars when driving. The Cayenne is a large and heavy car. It’s not going to be easy to drive in a city. You’ll struggle to park it, and you’ll struggle to get around tight corners. It’s designed to be used on the motorway and open country roads. Inside, the Cayenne is very similar to the 911. The instrument panel, infotainment system, and switchgear are almost identical to the car’s main sports car. The Cayenne is a 911 with four doors or a 911 that has lost a few pounds. This car is not cheap. This is not a car for everyone. This is a car for those who want to drive something truly special.

 

Conclusion

 

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT may have a silly name, but it’s a brilliant car. It’s comfortable, it’s fast, and it’s practical. This is a car that can be used every day, but it’s also a car that can be driven with real gusto.
