Five-Point Inspection: 2014 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S

Five-Point Inspection: 2014 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S

2. Thrust Master

The Cayenne comes equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission and Porsche’s all-wheel drive system known as PTM (Porsche Traction Management). Despite the massive amounts of torque, the Turbo S doesn’t launch off the line like a cougar on the prowl. Instead, power boils up like the thrust of a commercial jet liner and once underway feels like it’s a freight train. At any rpm, in any gear, power remains constant; simply hit the gas pedal and point the Cayenne while it devours mile after mile of blacktop.  Porsche claims the Turbo S will run reach 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds while topping out at 176 mph. Not bad for a 4,784-lb SUV.
