Top Gear stages a three-way, quarter-mile drag race against the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR, and Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT.
Porsche Cayenne Turbo S
Porsche knows that to keep up, a model has to keep evolving. For the latest 2015 evolution of the Cayenne Turbo S on display at the Detroit Auto Show, it now packs integral turbos housed directly in the exhaust manifolds. The move allows power to grow to 562 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, while shedding a half-second off the sprint to 60. The German brand also claims that the improved version can lap the Nurburgring Nordschleife in a blink less than eight minutes.
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,
