Porsche Cayenne Turbo
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 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.

Guilty pleasure admission time. We love the Porsche Cayenne.Yes, yes, it's an affront to the brand, a visual catastrophe and has as much to do with a sports car as does a cantaloupe. We get all that. Now, may we explain why we love the Cayenne? Because we've taken one (or three) off road. Whoa. Here's a car that can run an autocross neck-and-neck with a Subaru WRX, yet then wander off and embarrass Jeeps with the twist of a knob. It's perplexingly fantastic. How could we not love it?

TechArt knows its way around a Porsche, so we aren't the least bit surprised to learn that they've coaxed 600 horsepower out of the Cayenne Turbo.
