The Porsche Cayenne could really upset the 707 horsepower Jeep Trackhawk as we have heard that it is about to get the same engine as the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid.
The financial constraints of Volkswagen, which was brought about by themselves, mean that the subsidiary companies have to share technology and platforms. There is nothing wrong with this and they aren’t going to get complaints as they do build superb engines and chassis. Recently they chose to share the electric drivetrain of the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid with the Panamera Turbo S to offer up 680 horses and it seems that the Porsche Cayenne is also going to get it.
The global head of Porsche said that Porsche is going to boost the horses hugely. At the moment the Cayenne Turbo S offers 420 horses and the E-Hybrid offers 416 horses. The Porsche is going to be able to compete with the likes of the Audi SQ8 and Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio as it is going to offer up superb fuel economy while also delivering instant electric torque.
Porsche said they wanted to make the flagship a hybrid to ease consumers into a future that is going to have electrified Porsches. The Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid offers up 680 horses along with 626 torque and it offers a range of 31 miles on electric.
What we don’t know is whether or not other models from Porsche are going to be offered the same powerful hybrid drivetrain as the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid. For the time being one can only wonder about the possibility of a 680 horse Porsche Macan or 911.
