The Porsche ‘S’ has long been a mark of heightened sports performance and abundant reserves of power. On the Cayenne S, it also stands for strength, agility and efficiency.
At the heart of the car is a naturally aspirated 4.8-litre V8 engine featuring direct fuel injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus and a two-stage intake manifold. This helps to keep fuel consumption and emissions low, while ensuring maximum output. In short: 294 kW (400 hp), maximum torque of 500 Nm and a top speed of 258 km/h. The Cayenne S accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in as little as 5.9 seconds. Fuel consumption has been reduced by up to 23% and CO2 emissions by as much as 26%.* The weight of the car has also been lowered by 180 kg*.
Drive is transmitted to the road with smoothness and precision by the eight-speed Tiptronic S, which is now standard equipment and includes gearshift controls on the steering wheel. The result: optimum use of the available power reserves.
Of course, to apply exceptional power like this effectively, it needs to be harnessed and controlled. For example, by Porsche Traction Management (PTM). On the Cayenne S, this active all-wheel drive system features an electronically variable, map-controlled multi-plate clutch, an automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR). Working in conjunction with advanced Porsche Stability Management (PSM), PTM ensures the required torque split in every driving scenario. On or off road. During performance driving, as well as on leisurely journeys or when towing heavy loads.
The black slats on the air intakes make them appear larger, and the car wider. Other distinctive features include the 18-inch Cayenne S III wheels.
The Porsche ‘S’. A mark to which the Cayenne S holds true.
