Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia
From Porsche press: The Cayenne S Transsyberia is based on the Cayennes that won one of the most grueling endurance races in the world. The rally marathon, which is held every spring, is a two-week race that traverses Russia, Siberia and Mongolia and covers over 4,400 miles. It is called, simply, the Transsyberia Rally, and slightly modified Porsche Cayenne S models have won this brutally demanding event three times in a row.
Just as the Weissach-developed Cayenne S Transsyberia competition models were based on the street version of the Cayenne S, this 2010 special edition, with less than 600 units earmarked for North America, will feature the 405 horsepower, 4.8 liter naturally aspirated, direct fuel injected V8 engine lifted directly from the Cayenne GTS. The Tiptronic S six-speed automatic transmission with a 4.11:1 final drive ratio is standard.
All Cayenne S Transsyberias will be equipped with air suspension and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which electronically adjusts the shock absorbers to achieve superior ride and handling characteristics. The permanent all-wheel drive Porsche Traction Management (PTM) system divides the torque between the front and rear, with a 62% rear-bias for greater on-road driving dynamics.
The Cayenne S Transsyberia proudly shows off its winning pedigree. It will be available exclusively in four different color combinations – black with orange accents or crystal silver metallic, also with orange accents. For those desiring a more “stealthy” color combination, the Cayenne S Transsyberia will also available in either black with meteor grey metallic highlights or meteor grey metallic with crystal silver metallic highlights.
