Porsche Cayenne Turbo S
Time is not always on your side, leaving you with a cold meal and a kiss goodnight when you walk in the door on those long days. The faster Cayenne Turbo S might not help you navigate rush-hour traffic any more quickly, but the time-space meld that accompanies every full-throttle burst in the 4,800-plus-pound rocket will surely leave you feeling as though you’re creating the type of particles physicists at CERN would go nuts over. Increasing the already potent output by 50 to 550 in the Turbo S, Porsche is once again playing the with laws that Newton and Einstein held so dear. The new muscle pushes the SUV to 60 in 4.5 seconds and works in tandem with active all-wheel drive and air suspension systems and an electronically controlled rear differential to put the power down in corners like a light-footed sports car. It can be ordered with the Sports Chrono Package, which measures and stores performance data including lap times. It’s the one verifiable way that the Cayenne plays with time.
