Most Powerful: Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Models Announced

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Today, Porsche has made an exciting announcement: the introduction of the new Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe. These models take the crown as the most powerful Cayenne vehicles ever produced. With a staggering 670 horsepower and 663 lb-ft of torque, thanks to a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine combined with an electric motor, Porsche continues to leverage plug-in hybrid technology to enhance performance. Both of these new models are set to be released as part of the 2020 model year. Additionally, a third model, the 2020 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe, has also been unveiled.

Enhanced Performance and Distinctive Design

All three models are easily recognizable with their unique Acid Green coloring displayed on badges and brake calipers. Furthermore, the Sport Chrono Package, which includes a mode switch featuring a Sport Response button, is now standard on all three vehicles. In the case of the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid, it also boasts the same active roof spoiler found on the Cayenne Turbo, allowing for aerodynamic adjustments in five different positions based on speed and drive mode. The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe and Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe share the same design as other Cayenne Coupe derivative models, featuring a 0.78-inch (20 millimeter) lower roofline and an 0.70-inch (18 millimeter) wider rear track, resulting in a more muscular appearance and stance.

For all Cayenne Coupe models, Porsche has integrated a fixed spoiler above the rear window along with a new adaptive rear spoiler below it. This adaptive spoiler extends by 5.3 inches (135 mm) at speeds of 56 mph and above, contributing to enhanced aerodynamic stability.

Impressive Performance Figures

The new Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe models offer astonishing acceleration, reaching 0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds and boasting an electronically limited top track speed of 183 mph.

These vehicles are powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, generating an impressive 541 horsepower (404 kW). This engine is paired with a 134-horsepower (100 kW) electric motor, resulting in a combined total system output of 670 horsepower (550 kW) and 663 lb-ft of torque (900 Nm). The electric motor is positioned between the gasoline engine and the eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission, allowing the power sources to work together or independently, depending on the selected drive mode. All Cayenne models, including the newly announced versions, come standard with Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive. The electric motor is connected to a 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery, which offers 30% more energy capacity compared to the battery used in previous plug-in hybrid Cayenne models. This same battery is used in other current plug-in hybrid Cayenne models.

Being the top models in the Cayenne lineup, the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe are equipped with enhanced standard equipment compared to the Cayenne Turbo and Cayenne Turbo Coupe. Notably, Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB), Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV+), and the Sport Chrono Package are all included as standard. Additionally, a 7.2 kW onboard charger and 21-inch AeroDesign Wheels with wheel arch extensions in the exterior color come as standard equipment on these top two models. Sport Exhaust and Rear Axle Steering are available as options. The upgraded charger allows for a complete recharge of the 14.1 kWh battery in as little as 2.4 hours when using a 240-volt connection with a 50-amp circuit. With the exception of PTV+, all these features can be optionally added to the V6-powered Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe.

Both models feature 18-way Adaptive Sport Seats as standard. In the standard body style, the rear bench seat offers three seating positions. However, in the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe and Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe, two seating positions with individual bucket seats are provided. For customers desiring three rear seating positions, the rear bench seat design from the standard body style is available as a no-cost option. Additionally, the rear seats in the coupe models are positioned lower to offset the lower roofline, which is 0.78 inches (20 millimeters) lower than the standard model.

Lightweight Sport Package and Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe

The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe and Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe are also eligible for the same Lightweight Sport Package available to other Cayenne Coupe models. This package, available in two forms, adds numerous exterior and interior equipment. Notable additions include a carbon fiber roof, 22-inch GT Design Wheels, the Sport Design Package, the Carbon Interior Package, a Heated Multifunction Sport Steering Wheel in Alcantara, an Alcantara roof liner, black and silver Houndstooth seat centers, and various exterior body parts in carbon fiber. Depending on the version selected, the Lightweight Sport Package can save up to 48 lbs.
