2013 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S shows up with 550 horsepower

Porsche has revealed details on the new Cayenne Turbo S, and the most powerful of the company's SUV range will bow with an extra 50 horspower at its command. That nudges power to 550 hp and 553 pound-feet of torque, clipping 0.1 seconds from the machine's 0-60 dash and upping the top speed by three miles per hour. The 2013 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S can now dart to 60 from a stand still in a ludicrous 4.3 seconds and clip off a 175 mph top end. Buyers can expect to enjoy a slathering of tech aides, including Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus and Power Steering Plus as standard equipment. The Cayenne Turbo's air suspension will also hang on for 2013.

Outside, designers saddled the Cayenne Turbo S with a few aesthetic accents to differentiate the model from its siblings. Those include gloss black air intakes up front as well as the same 21-inch 911 Turbo II wheels dipped in gloss black as well. A set of twin exhaust outlets keep the engine breathing freely as well. Step indoors and you'll see that the Cayenne Turbo S serves up a two-tone leather interior with contrast stitching as well as plenty of carbon fiber accents on the dash and door panels.
