Under the bonnet, the new Cayenne Turbo is powered by a 4.0-litre V8 with two turbochargers nestled within the V. The twin-turbo V8 generates 404kW of power and 770Nm of torque, up 22kW and 20Nm on the previous model, which had a larger 4.8-litre twin-turbo V8.

All that fire and fury is channelled to ground via an all-wheel drive setup and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Porsche claims a 0-100km/h time of 4.1 seconds - or 3.9 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono Package. Top speed is said to be 286km/h.

The new Cayenne Turbo rides on active shock absorbers, and six-stage height-adjustable suspension. Under the Turbo's wider, body-colour wheel arches are 21-inch alloy wheels shod with 285/40 tyres up front and 315/35 rubber at the rear.

Available features include torque vectoring, a 48V electrical system with active roll stabilisation, and optional rear-wheel steering.

On the inside, the Cayenne Turbo can be had with a 710W Bose surround sound system, a large touchscreen infotainment system, and sports seats with 18-way electric adjustment, heating and 911-style integrated headrests.

The Cayenne Turbo will enter local showrooms alongside Cayenne and Cayenne S from the middle of 2018. Local pricing and specifications will be announced closer to the local launch date.
