There are few times in a man’s life when the perfect car comes along. The 2014 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S could be that car. Not a car, but an SUV, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S Model Joins the 2014 Porsche Cayenne Lineup and is the latest generation in the series.
The Turbo S boasts an additional 50 horsepower, which means this SUV can do 0 to 60 in less than 4.3 seconds. Top speed is 175 mph, which is just slightly faster than the Cayenne Turbo.
No Change in Gas Mileage
The Cayenne Turbo S will not give up any gas mileage due to its increase in power. The regular Cayenne Turbo gets 15/22 mpg city/highway fuel mileage, and the Turbo S gets the same. The engine is still Porsche’s 4.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 with direct fuel injection (DFI), but the engineering department found room for another 50 horses.
Safety is paramount on any drivers mind, and it all starts with brakes. A high performance vehicle requires a high performance brake system, and this is exactly what Porsche has done. The new 2014 Cayenne Turbo S has matched a front disc (390 mm diameter) with the rear disc (358 mm diameter) using aluminum, which reduces weight and improves handling. The first time you hit the brake pedal you’ll know what we mean.
Porsche also offers optional Porsche ceramic composite brakes (PCCB). The pedal response is faster and more sensitive compared to the standard brakes. If you’re going to frequently test the higher range of the Turbo’s speed range, then this is definitely an option you’ll want to consider.
Suspension management is enhanced on the Turbo S model. The Porsche active dampening control and air suspension management system is standard, but Turbo S has added a dynamic chassis control system that reduces corner rolling using hydraulic roll bars – a feature that other high-end SUV’s wish they had.
Torque Vector Plus is another standard feature for driving stability. This system adjusts torque between rear wheels and works in sync with the electronically controlled differential lock, thus making most any kind of road conditions manageable.
Power steering is enhanced with the Power Steering Plus system. At higher speeds steering becomes firmer due to the “speed sensitive” engineering upgrade. At lower speeds, steering becomes more responsive for city driving and parking; a feature unique to the 2014 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S.
The transmission is an eight-speed Tiptronic system. This system is sensitive to the drivers driving style, as well as the varied road conditions. This is what Porsche calls “intelligent performance.”
What makes Porsche so special is the attention to detail. In today’s world where technology and communication collide, Porsche has made the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system a standard feature included with the Cayenne Turbo S. This central control system includes a 7-inch high-resolution touch screen, which controls the navigation system w/hard drive, CD/DVD, radio, telephone, computer, and other options and/or services you may want on-board. The instrument panel is called a cluster. There’s a 4.8-inch high-resolution display where the driver can monitor anything from map data to tire pressure.
The rear parking assisted camera is another standard feature on the 2014 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. Sensors located in both the front and rear of the vehicle will help guide you into the tightest of parking spots using dynamic guidelines.
Surround sound, 14 speakers, 585 total watts, and a 200 watt subwoofer; this Bose sound system is every man’s dream, and it comes standard with the Turbo S. If you want to take it to the next level, Porsche offers, as an option, a 1000watt Brumester, high-end surround sound system with a 16-channel amplifier…wow! With an assortment of colors and interior options to choose from, you can almost customize the new Cayenne Turbo S to suit your desires.
The 2014 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S has raised the bar for luxury SUVs. With systems that incorporate “intelligent performance” and standard features not found with any other SUV on the market, most men will find the Cayenne Turbo S the perfect SUV. Elegant, modern, and sophisticated – need we say more?
