The Porsche Cayenne is one of the most luxurious and powerful SUV ever made and commands a huge respect from the automobile fraternity. Sitting at the top of the Porsche Cayenne line is the Turbo S variant, one of the most powerful SUVs ever made. While the 2014 model of the Turbo S boasted of a strong 550 hp power output, Porsche has revealed the 2015 model of the same, which claims an impressive 562 hp output.
The German build 2015 Cayenne Turbo S will produce a mammoth 562 hp power and 800 Nm of torque from the same 4.8 litre twin turbo V8 engine. And how impressive are these numbers? The Turbo S can now hit 0-100 kmph in just 3.8 seconds, reaching 280 kmph top speed. Porsche's eight-speed Tiptronic automatic gearbox still routes power to all four wheels.
Compare it to the 2014 model and one can see the difference. The 2014 edition was powered by the same 4.8 litre twin turbo V8 unit which produced 550 hp, enabling the SUV to hit 0-100 kmph in 4.3 seconds (0.5 seconds slower than 2015 model), while the top speed was almost similar. These were some impressive figures by any standards, until Porsche decided to reveal the 2015 model.
Porsche claims that the new Turbo S could do a complete lap of Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7:59.74. Comparatively, the 550 hp Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR was the fastest SUV here, completing a lap in 8:14. Looks wise, the bumper and undersides of the door mirrors are done in high-gloss black paint. Meanwhile, the roof spoiler and wheel arches are body color. Rest all remains the same.
