When Porsche left LMP racing in 1999 to pursue development of an SUV, the racing community missed the German innovator and dominant multi-year champion. It begged the question, “What is Porsche doing building an SUV?” Well, not only has the Cayenne been a profitable venture since its release, the SUV market has never been the same. Running errands and picking the kids up at soccer in a 500 horsepower twin-turbo driven 4.8 liter makes more than a statement. The Cayenne Turbo’s top speed is above 170 mph and its 0-60 time is just over four seconds. Coupled with an all-wheel drive system that keeps all that power under control on any road condition, it is now OK to use “SUV” and “performance” in the same sentence. Compare its ability on the track with any other SUV and you will see the Cayenne is still in a class by itself.
