The Cayenne Turbo S also has ceramic brakes with 420 mm front brakes and for the first time ten-piston calipers. The rear brakes have 370 mm discs and four-piston calipers. Porsche has also equipped the vehicle with improved Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) systems.
Standard equipment includes 21-inch alloy wheels with 911 Turbo design, LED headlights, full-leather interior and new interior styling in black-crème color. Outside the SUV benefits from a high-gloss finished radiator grille, a roof spoiler and wheel arch moldings in body color and a sports exhaust system.
The Porsche Cayenne Turbo S will be launched in Germany in the second quarter of 2015 with prices starting at 166,696 EUR (196,850 USD).
