Luxury at your disposal!
The ultra-powerful 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 in our tester, which makes 541 horsepower and 567 pound-feet of torque, fires up with a hearty bellow. And it can’t wait to tear up the road: With a 0-60 mph time of just 3.7 seconds, the Cayenne Coupe Turbo moves with the alacrity of a thoroughbred sports car. Top speed is a lofty 177 mph. The eight-speed torque-converter style automatic shifts almost as quickly as a dual-clutch box, but it is better suited for towing – and it provides the torque overload at initial takeoff that many SUV buyers love. In heavily police-patrolled areas, we advise you to watch your speed closely: You enter triple-digit territory without effort – and sometimes inadvertently.
