Controlled by means of an eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission, the SUV can reach 100 kph from a standstill in 3.8 seconds and achieves a top speed of 295 kph (183 mph). This Turbo is every bit as well-mannered as the Cayenne S we've touted as the equivalent of a luxury sports sedan, only packing still more power and grip when we dialed all the electronics to red-mist mode.
There will be, soon, two even more capable and even more expensive models: a very likely Turbo S variant that will squeeze an unspecified additional chunk of horsepower from the V-8 and the Turbo S E-Hybrid packing the 680-hp combined engine-plus-electric-motor output found in the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Panamera Sport Turismo but mated to a conventional eight-speed automatic and not the Panamera's eight-speed dual-clutch trans. 0-60 miles per hour comes in 4.7 seconds and top speed is 157 miles per hour, and the Sport Chrono Package comes fitted as standard. The Cayenne E-Hybrid in standard body style, meanwhile, is also back in the line-up.

The data look much better when charging: While many plug-in hybrids do not achieve more than 3.7 kW charging power, the AC onboard charger in the Cayenne delivers up to 7.2 kW. The Cayenne Coupe E-Hybrid costs from £71,424. Other performance features like the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB), Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV+) and Sport Chrono Package also come as standard, factory-fitted equipment on these.
If you can withstand the urge to flog it, Porsche says the cars offer up to 40km of electric only driving and can go up to 135km/h using only the battery.
The coupé, which is a good $4,000+ dearer than the wagon, comes with some slinky extras, including adaptive rear spoiler, panoramic glass roof (a carbon roof is optional), and "a rear seat bench with the characteristics of two individual seats". There are still options, though, like a louder sport exhaust and rear-axle steering. It includes the Sport Design Package, a carbon fiber roof, carbon fiber exterior accents and 22-inch GT Design wheels. The $86,400 model serves as a stylish alternative to the now available Cayenne E-Hybrid.
The Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe also has a few extra standard features over the standard Cayenne E-Hybrid.
