Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid debuts as most powerful Cayenne ever – Biturbo V8, 739hp, 950Nm

Porsche has just debuted the most powerful Cayenne of all time, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid Coupé. This also makes it the most powerful Porsche SUV ever, taking the crown from the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid.

On the outside, Both the Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid Coupé wear a front fascia design that has been reserved for the brand’s Turbo models. The two performance SUVs are also fitted with HD-Matrix LED headlamps, enlarged cooling air intakes accented by shiny black airblades, along with two brushed stainless steel twin tailpipes and red brake callipers.

Powering the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid is a plug-in hybrid system that consists of a 599 hp (metric) 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine, and a 176 hp (metric) electric motor. Combined system output is rated at 739 hp (metric) and 950 Nm, resulting in a century sprint time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 295 km/h. This is 59 hp (metric) and 50 Nm more than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid, and 0.1 seconds faster in terms of the 0-100 km/h sprint time.

The new performance hybrid SUV now carries a 25.9 kWh battery, which is stored beneath the load compartment floor, resulting in an electric range of 82 km (EAER city). When it runs out of juice, it can be charged to full using the 11 kW on-board charger in around 2.5 hours.

Suspension-wise, Porsche has fitted its new performance hybrid SUV with adaptive air suspension along with the marque’s new two-chamber, two-valve technology. This allows the suspension to adjust the rebound and compression stages of the suspension’s operation separately, which as a result enhances both comfort and safety.

Porsche’s Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) is also packed as standard with the new performance SUV. Customers can also opt for the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) and rear-axle steering if they choose to.

Inside, standard equipment included with the Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid consists of the heated GT sports steering wheel, a driving mode switch, and 18-way adjustable leather sports seats. The performance SUV’s dashboard and door panel trims also come with aluminium inlays, while its roof lining is covered in Race-Tex.

Also included are upgrades available in the facelifted Porsche Cayenne lineup unveiled by the brand earlier this year. Among the upgrades is the new cockpit with an all-digital instrument cluster, and a redesigned centre console.
