Under the hood the Cayenne Turbo S gets the same twin-turbocharged 4.8L V8 engine as the Panamera Turbo S, which generates 50 more horsepower and 37 more lb-ft. than the engine under the hood of the Cayenne Turbo. The Cayenne Turbo S also gets Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), which reduces the roll angle in curves to practically zero, improving agility and comfort equally. Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus), which is also standard, operates with torque vectoring at the rear wheels together with an electronically controlled rear differential lock, which improves traction and therefore offers more agility in every driving situation. The new Cayenne Turbo S is also equipped with the Sport Chrono package as standard.
