Porsche Cayenne Turbo revealed

Now, at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the automaker gives us all we need to know about the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo, including specs that would make some sports cars sweat.

When Porsche dropped details on its third-generation Cayenne SUV a few weeks ago, it neglected to mention one model: The high-performance Turbo variant. The V8 sends its power to all four wheels via a new 8-speed Tiptronic S transmission. Of course, that 0-60 time only happens when the new Cayenne is equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package. It also reaches a top speed of 178 miles per hour.

Active chassis with three-chamber air suspension and mixed tires The new lightweight chassis of the Cayenne Turbo combines the best of three worlds: the precision of a sports auto, the comfort of a sedan and the adaptability of an off-road vehicle. The air ride system has six height levels and can be manually changed to suit the road. Want even more performance?

At night, the new Turbo sets itself apart from other Cayenne models with its double-row front light modules. Depending on the position, this optimizes efficiency, increases downforce on the rear axle and, in the airbrake position, shortens the braking distance from higher speeds. The door trims and rear apron are finished in the exterior colour on the SUV, while adding the sporty touch are the twin exhaust pipes. It sticks with steel discs, but a new tungsten carbide layer helps resist wear and reduces brake dust, keeping your Turbo-exclusive 21-inch alloys cleaner.

North Korea conducted another nuclear test over the weekend. "Hopefully, we're not going to have to use it on North Korea". North Korea says it needs to develop its weapons to defend itself against what it sees as USA aggression.

Aerodynamic bragging rights fall to the adaptive roof spoiler, though.

The new Porsche Cayenne Turbo is available to order now and will launch in Europe at the end of 2017. Audio is provided by a 710-watt BOSE surround sound system, comfort and exhilaration by the 18-way adaptable sport front seats with integrated headrests that call to mind the 911 as well as an exclusively designed multifunction steering wheel. The top system in the program remains the optional Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB).
