The 4.8-liter twin-turbocharged Cayenne Turbo S benefits from an additional 50
hp compared to the Cayenne Turbo. The Cayenne Turbo S accelerates zero to 60
in 4.3 seconds on its way to a top track speed of 175 mph. Equipped for
maximum dynamic performance, the car is equipped with Porsche Dynamic Chassis
Control (PDCC), Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) and the Sport Chrono
package as standard.
The exterior of the Cayenne Turbo S is distinguished by front air intakes and
rear-view mirror trim painted in high-gloss black. Standard 21-inch 911 Turbo
II wheels with colored Porsche badges and high-gloss black accents are also
exclusive to the Cayenne Turbo S, along with dual twin-tube sport tailpipes.

price of $146,000, not including a $975 destination charge.
Also making an appearance at the North American International Auto Show is
third-generation Porsche Cayman, which was unveiled at the Los Angeles
International Auto Show in November.
Re-engineered from the ground up, the new Cayman is lower, lighter, faster and
more efficient and powerful than ever before. A longer wheelbase, wider track
and larger wheels enhance the driving performance of the mid-engine sports

S produces 325 hp with a 3.4-liter engine. Both models will arrive in
dealerships in spring 2013 at a base price of $52,600 for the Cayman and
