During the first generation cycle of the Porsche Cayenne, the company introduced a high-performance version called the Turbo S. The Turbo S brought forth a 4.5L turbo V8 producing 520 HP.

Well, Porsche is doing another Cayenne Turbo S for this generation. The Turbo S uses the same 4.8L turbo V8 from the Cayenne Turbo with some slight modifications. Performance stats are:
  • 520 HP
  • 553 lb-ft of torque
  • 0-60 MPH in 4.2 Seconds
  • Top Speed of 176 MPH
Despite all of the performance increases, Porsche says the Turbo S doesn't see a significant change in fuel consumption.

The Cayenne Turbo S' exterior gets some subtle changes which include 21-inch alloy wheels, smoked headlamps, gloss black accents on the lower part of the mirrors and bumpers, and rectangular quad tailpipes. Inside, there are new carbon fiber trim decors for the dashboard, door panels and center console and a two-tone leather upholstery with contrasting stitching.

Standard equipment on the Turbo S include air suspension with active roll stabilization and damping control, torque vectoring system that works with an electronically controlled limited-slip differential, and the Sport Chrono package.

The Cayenne Turbo S will premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show and go on sale sometime next year.
