Porsche Cayenne Turbo: Does It Still Make Sense?

By  | 

With the kind of attention, SUVs models are getting right now, we do understand why automakers think there is a need to offer more SUVs but is a performance SUV really needed.

To be honest, most people would not say no to more power but what started out as a model that is all about versatility and practicality has now been turned into a plaything. Automakers are all trying to come out with some unique version of SUV that would capture the attention of the crowd and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo is one of them.

We do commend Porsche for being able to make such a large vehicle actually drive so well. Powering it is a 4.0-liter V8 engine that will be offering about 542hp. Customers can choose to add on the Sports Chrono Package to shave the 0-62mph time to 3.9 seconds.

Porsche also gave the new model new air springs and 48-volt decoupling anti-roll bars to make the ride more comfortable. What do you think of this new performance SUVs?
