And today we have a new car from Germany, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, the second generation Cayenne. When the creators of Porsche set about creating the second generation Caen, they were faced with the task of not spoiling a good thing, not killing the goose that laid the golden eggs.
The fact is that it is the Porsche Cayenne that brings 80% of the profits of Porsche. Although the Cayenne is the most atypical Porsche. Porsche cayenne - This is an SUV with sports genes, which has got accustomed not only in Germany, but also in other countries, like many thoughtful German cars.
Therefore, in order for the second-generation Porsche Cayenne to become successful, it must be created in the same spirit, already familiar and in demand. The developers from Stuttgart say about Caen that they retained all the best qualities and even multiplied them.
The new Porsche Cayenne Turbo S looks almost the same, but has become 200 kg lighter than its predecessor, and this is a good achievement. But the previous version of Caen had great off-road qualities, and the new Caen now has no downshift in the transfer case, it is replaced by electronics, which reconfigures the operation of the unit.
Moreover, the off-road package is available only in the turbo package - the most sophisticated. By car installed pneumatic-hydraulic suspension, which is able to increase ground clearance. The maximum was 29 cm, and the new Porsche Cayenne was 27.5.
This is all marketing research, which showed that the overwhelming majority of owners of a Porsche Cayenne put comfort, dynamics, power as a priority, and one of a thousand is interested in off-road qualities. That is why the German developers made the new device more powerful, comfortable and fast, but they also did not forget about the lack of roads.Recommended article: BMW Alpina of the seventh series of 2013 pleases the eye
Porsche Cayenne Turbo S is the most charged option among the Kaenas.
Cayenne 2, despite its similarities with its predecessors, was created from scratch, but the essence is the same - a carrying body and a fully independent suspension with optional pneumatic elements instead of springs and shock absorbers. Permanent four-wheel drive works differently: in the Cayenne and Cayenne hybrid, the moment is distributed: 40% to the front axle and 60% to the rear axle.
And in the Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo the moment is constantly walking, this is called "active four-wheel drive." The redistribution of the moment depends on a lot of factors - on acceleration, wheel slip, on the angle of rotation of the steering wheel, on the intensity with which the driver works with this wheel. Electronics also dispenses the rear differential lock, as an option it can be put even on the most modest Cayenne.
Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and options are simpler
By the way, the hybrid version of the Porsche Cayenne is equipped with a motor with a mechanical supercharger, this is a 3.0 V6 engine, the total power is 380 horsepower. The most modest Porsche Cayenne is a 300-strong V6, with a volume of 3.6 liters. Such a machine costs about 3 100 000 rubles.
Cayenne S is already V8 with a volume of 4.2 liters. with a capacity of 400 horses. Good average option.
But the version of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo with the help of two superchargers and a 4.8 liter engine, the V8 has a capacity of 500 horsepower. The maximum torque of this device is 700 Nm, acceleration from 0 to 100 in 4.7 seconds. Weight Porsche Cayenne Turbo is 2 170 kg. Such a machine is worth 6,476,000 rubles. Such a device will easily make the 2013 Range Rover Sport, which accelerates to 100 km / h in about a second slower.Recommended article: New Audi S8 2013 introduced
And the most powerful version is the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, this unit has the same 4.8 liter V8 engine under the hood, but with a capacity of 550 horses and 750 Nm of torque, this Porsche accelerates to a hundred in 4.5 seconds. Excellent result, even when compared with the new Range Rover Sport.
Behind the wheel of a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S you feel a pleasant thrill of driving, visibility is good, the vibration in the cabin is not felt, even when driving along the pavement. Off-road performance does this car really have, but what kind of engine, what kind of acceleration dynamics are really impressive moments.
Consumption in the combined cycle - on pavement, highway, and city streets is 18 liters per 100 km. This is a very good result, given that under the hood we have a 550-strong V8 and 2 turbines. Although the Germans promise that in the combined cycle this engine should consume 11.2 liters. Such an expense can be obtained only in one case - go to the tow truck with the engine on :))
