There have been some interesting changes in the automotive industry in recent years. Sure there have been changes in fuel efficiency, technology and infotainment systems, but there have also been changes in the types of vehicles consumers are choosing. It is much more likely consumers will select a truck or SUV today than the traditional sedan. In fact, many brands have stopped producing traditional sedans.
At the same time, luxury, premium brands and even super car labels have moved into the SUV market. Are you considering an SUV? It could be a Porsche.
The New Porsche SUV
It doesn’t even sound like an SUV. It is the 2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT.
To put things in perspective (for non-automotive enthusiasts) the 2021 Honda Accord has a horsepower range of about 195hp to 255hp, That’s a nice expectation for a sedan.
The twin-turbocharged V-8, 4.0 liter engine in the 2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, however, generates 631 horsepower along with 626 pound feet of torque. Porsche says it is the most powerful V8 engine the brand has ever made. This is an SUV that can rocket from zero to 60 in 3.1 seconds. It can do the quarter mile in 11.6 seconds and has a top speed of 186 mph. Oh, remember, it is an SUV.
The 631 HP Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT SUV proudly sits on 22-inch tires made specifically by Pirelli for the Cayenne. There’s a rear carbon fiber diffuser along with a rear spoiler that adapts to its speed.
Sure, this Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT has an MSRP of over $180,000, a bit more than your average SUV. But it is a Porsche that can reach 186 mph, and it is an SUV. That is amazing.
