On the braking front there's the usual fade-resistant carbon ceramic option, but one thing you might not have expected is a new airbrake function. The standard three-litre turbocharged power unit that will produce 40 hp more than the outgoing model at 340 hp and the Cayenne S will get a 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine with an additional 20 hp for a total of 440 hp. - an increase of 15 kW (20 hp).

The Cayenne Turbo represents a significant enhancement for the family. Further helping the performance SUV along is Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus, which can be combined with an optional rear-axle steering system for the "driving dynamics of a sports vehicle", Porsche says. The system has six selectable height levels and five driving modes configured for on- and off-road performance. Yes, it's meant to be taken off-road too! Yep, the Cayenne has an adaptive rear spoiler - the first time such a thing has been fitted on an SUV according to Porsche - and when it's not adding downforce or position to increase efficiency, it's able to tilt up and increase drag considerably. The roof spoiler's air brake works well with Porsche's new Porsche Surface Coasted Brake (PSCB).

The Cayenne Turbo stands out from the other Cayenne models with its an exclusive front fascia, LED headlights, 21-inch wheels and adaptive roof spoiler. The door trims and rear bumper are painted in the exterior colour.

When Porsche dropped details on its third-generation Cayenne SUV a few weeks ago, it neglected to mention one model: The high-performance Turbo variant. The Turbo also gets 18-way adjustable seats with integrated headrests, a heated steering wheel, and heated seats all around as standard.
