2008 Porsche Cayenne Turbo news, pictures, and information
Initial Details of the New Porsche Cayenne ReleasedFour years after their debut in the world market, the next generation of the Porsche Cayenne and its Turbo and S variants will be seen for the first time at the 2007 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. The trio of Porsche SÚVs incorporates attractive new styling, enhanced engine performance, and innovative handling technology.
The new Cayenne models have a powerful and highly distinctive presence, and the styling changes significantly improve aerodynamic efficiency. The headlights are a new, narrowed design and now feature projector-beam units on Cayenne and Cayenne S. Revised front air intakes improve cooling and, as a result, engine performance. The wheel arches are more heavily contoured, and the rear of every Cayenne now includes a diffuser-style apron and new roof spoiler.
Already acknowledged for its class-leading handling and body control, the new Cayenne models can be further enhanced by the new Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) roll stabilizer system. An active anti-roll system that is available as an option on all models, PDCC significantly reduces body roll during cornering and counterbalances it wherever possible. From a driver's perspective, the result is improved handling and agility, greater directional stability and ride comfort. When off-road, the system increases axle articulation for improved traction.
The performance figures for the new Cayenne Turbo are impressive, wîth an engine output 50 bhp higher than that of its predecessor. The new 4.8-liter eight-cylinder engine, boosted by twin exhaust-driven turbochargers, now produces 500 bhp and 517 lb-ft. The Turbo can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 5.1 seconds and has a maximum speed of 171 mph.
Porsche Driving Experience Offered to New Cayenne OwnersEvery Cayenne owner will receive a Porsche Driving Experience, a combination of test track and off-road activities and studies in advanced road driving techniques. Únder the guidance of a Porsche Driving Consultant, owners will safely explore the potential of their car that will enable them to maximise the enjoyment of their new Porsche.
Porsche Vehicle Tracking System Standard on Cayenne Turbo
From Model Year 2007, the Porsche Vehicle Tracking System (VTS) became standard on the Cayenne Turbo and all 911 models. The new Cayenne Turbo will also be fitted wîth VTS. This is the only system tested and approved by Porsche engineers at the research and development centre in Weissach, Germany. Approved to Thatcham Category 5 standard, the highest in the ÚK, the system features a discreet pocket-sized card, which should be carried in the car when it is in motion. If the car is moved without the card on board, or should the car sense itself being lifted or towed, the tracking system is instantly alerted and, using the latest GPS technology, is able to track and locate the car. The Porsche VTS is tailored to fit every car in the range. Initial preparation is carried out at the factory wîth final fitting completed by Porsche Centres. It is available as an option on all other Porsche cars.
More information on the new Porsche Cayenne, Cayenne S, and Cayenne Turbo will be available at the NAIAS Porsche press conference on January 8. Designated as 2008 models, the trio of new Porsche SÚVs will arrive at North American Porsche dealerships in March of 2007.Source - Porsche
