Porsche Cayenne S

As Porsche enthusiasts already know, the “S” badge signifies a truly special Porsche model, not merely a trim upgrade or option package.

The Cayenne S maintains a tradition that dates to 1952 with the S version of the original Porsche, the 356. Since then, the S badge has been worn by the famed 911S that arrived in 1967 and subsequently by such outstanding vehicles as the Boxster® S and the 911® Carrera® 4S.

For the launch of the Porsche SUV, the Cayenne S earns its special designation thanks to its 340-horsepower (SAE), 4.5-liter, normally aspirated V8 engine, a powerplant designed and manufactured by Porsche that ranks the Cayenne S among the strongest of all sport utilities. It features an all-new, six-speed Tiptronic® S transmission and introduces Porsche Traction Management four-wheel-drive technology that provides outstanding performance during maneuvers on a variety of paved and unpaved terrain.

The Cayenne S carries such standard equipment as Porsche Stability Management; front, side and curtain airbags; a Bose® Cabin Surround Sound System; leather upholstery and automatic climate controls.
