The prowess of Porsche powerplant technologies has been confirmed by countless victories at racing circuits and rallies around the globe. But that hasn't stopped our idealistic band of engineers from trying to go further. From trying to shave another hundredth of a second, or deliver even more driving pleasure.
The latest example of such thinking? The new Cayenne Turbo Powerkit, which delivers a 40 hp increase in output through modifications to the intake manifold and a remapped electronic engine management system. The result is a prodigious 540 hp underfoot at 6000 rpm. Maximum torque is increased by 37 lb.-ft to 533 lb.-ft between 2250 and 4500 rpm. On the test track, the Cayenne Turbo accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds with a top track speed of 173 mph (279 km/h). In the driver's seat, the torrent of power you feel pressing you back into your seat as the turbochargers reach their stride is relentless. And thoroughly invigorating.
Of course, Porsche performance dynamics are not achieved through power boosts alone. The Cayenne Turbo Powerkit also features modifications to the suspension, drivetrain, and braking system (on 2008 models only) to cope with the Powerkit's greater engine output.
For 2008 models, the brakes are improved with this kit. The front axle is equipped with race-proven six-piston aluminum monobloc brake calipers and internally vented, two-piece brake discs measuring 14.96 inches in diameter with a thickness of 1.5 inch. All of which allows the Cayenne Turbo to stop as quickly as it goes.
Note: 21" inch wheel and tire package is recommended for this kit, not compatible with all wheel sizes. For more details, or to verify your production date, contact us for more information.
