I cherish a profound sentiment towards cars, bikes, speedboats, planes and almost all modes of transportation and writing about it is an avenue that helps me redeem myself.

Today I drove the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. Though it looks like an inbred child, it can move! When you get into to the Cayenne the bulkiness manages to deceive you right up-to the point when your foot hits the gas. It’s almost impossible to imagine the brutal acceleration the Cayenne puts out. Inside the car is a comfortable cabin filled with tasteless design. When you are at the wheel, it feels like you are connected to the car. In the Cayenne it’s almost like you can feel every detail on the road, the suspension is just enough to make the car feel comfortable while being stiff enough to savor the fun of maneuvering a tight corner aggressively. The automatic gearbox is useless when driving energetically, but for a cruise the gearshifts are unnoticeable and make the drive serene.2015-porsche-cayenne-turbo-car

Engine and Transmission

The Cayenne is powered by a 4.8 liter, 8 cylinder, direct fuel injection, twin turbo charged engine putting out a profuse 520 BHP. The 8 speed tiptronic gearbox puts down the mighty power to the tarmac. 0 to 100 kph is dealt with in 4.1 seconds, that is the same as a Lamborghini Gallardo LP550 Spyder. To make the car panda friendly, the Cayenne comes with an automatic start-stop function. The fuel saved by the start-stop function is thrown away by the all time 4WD.

Suspension and Breaking

The long wheel base and wide tracks provide for accurate stability at any speed. The steel springs along with the actively managed air suspension, provides luxury while being capable of commanding challenging terrain. Porsche dynamic chassis control anticipates and reduces lateral body movement when cornering aggressively. The torque vectoring in conjunction with the rear differential enhances stability while navigating through slippery terrain.  The tyre pressure monitoring system makes sure that there is no loss in performance due to faulty tyre pressures. Porsche is equipped with ceramic composite brakes to handle the immense weight of the car and provide utmost performance as you embark upon trips of your wildest fantasy.  The Cayenne with its ample ground clearance will easily lay the course through Indian roads.

The car is furnished with an array of airbags to ensure optimum safety of the driver and the passengers. The robust chassis is built to transmit forces of the accident around the passenger cabin. The rollover protection system keeps the car from tipping over. The cayenne is also rigged with an overkill of driver assistance aid like Electronic Stability Control, Auto-on headlights, night vision, traction control, adjustable pedals among a lot of other gizmos.06f1ccd8-b25e-4791-886f-3244dbe59e03

Verdict

In conclusion if you can stay oblivious to its appearance and can feed the voracious beast, the Cayenne is a refreshing experience. The car glides through Indian terrain and feels good to drive. The spacious cabin would make it an ideal choice for a family sedan as well. The Cayenne delivers most of what you would expect in a car but it doesn’t make sense to buy the Porsche Cayenne over other options like the Range Rover HSE.
