The 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo is your 550-hp grocery-getter

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo is your 550-hp grocery-getter

The German automaker has now revealed the new flagship 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo with mind blowing levels that can make some sports cars sweat. Why is the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo so fast?

The new Cayenne Turbo is powered by Porsche's new twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8, which makes the same 550 hp and 567 lb-ft of torque it does in the Panamera Turbo. The engine comes mated to an eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission, which routes power to all four wheels via the Porsche Traction Management all-wheel-drive system. It also reaches a top speed of 178 miles per hour.

The Cayenne is becoming an ever-closer cousin to the 911 sports auto, and that is even more the case with the Cayenne Turbo, whose enhanced performance capabilities are based in part on a new, more-lightweight chassis as well as on innovative technologies like active aerodynamics (including, for the first time ever on an SUV, an adaptive rear spoiler), three-chamber air suspension, different-sized tires (285/40 front and 315/35 rear) and new high-performance brakes, not to mention available rear-axle steering. Want even more performance? Further helping the performance SUV along is Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus, which can be combined with an optional rear-axle steering system for the "driving dynamics of a sports vehicle", Porsche says. Depending on the position, this optimizes efficiency, increases downforce on the rear axle and, in the airbrake position, shortens the braking distance from higher speeds. Porsche says the air brake helps to slow the SUV two meters earlier from a speed of 250 km/h and compliments its new standard tungsten-carbide coated steel brakes. Here's everything you need to know about the most powerful Porsche SUV on sale.

If your current Porsche Cayenne doesn't feel fast enough, don't worry: The new one should. Other changes include the body-color door trims and rear apron. Audio is provided by a 710-watt BOSE surround sound system, comfort and exhilaration by the 18-way adaptable sport front seats with integrated headrests that call to mind the 911 as well as an exclusively designed multifunction steering wheel.

Tom Cruise feeling betrayed by Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx's romance
Back in 2013 Jamie strongly denied any romance after the pair were seen hitting the dance floor together at a Hamptons event. Jamie was nowhere in sight, but Katie did mention her other "sweetie", daughter Suri.

Inside, the new Cayenne Turbo gets a Porsche Advanced Cockpit which is a 12.3-inch instrument display console that incorporates most functions on the SUV. As a result, if you brake hard from 155mph, you'll stop anything up to two metres sooner.

The 2019 Cayenne Turbo will be available for ordering in December, but deliveries won't start until the fall of 2018.
