The 2016 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S is all about power. Under the bonnet is a 4.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine producing a mammoth 419kW of power and 800Nm of torque. Those figures are, quite simply, ridiculous. Who on Earth needs that amount of grunt from a family SUV? Apparently some people do, because this updated Porsche Cayenne Turbo S has 14kW and 50Nm more than its predecessor. And it also costs a sizeable amount more, too.The engine, which is teamed to an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission, exhibits some annoying low-speed hesitation. You really need to measure the precise amount of throttle input to get a smooth take-off: too much throttle and it roars away violently; too little and it lags as the turbos spool up. If you’re not in traffic, the throttle response issue isn’t as pronounced. Indeed, this engine loves to rev, and the sweet spot is where all the torque kicks in – from 2500 to 4000rpm. Hit the Sport button – or better yet, Sport Plus – and the engine response becomes notably sharper. Plant the right foot and the Cayenne pushes you back in your seat, and there’s a great – if somewhat muted – exhaust roar that accompanies the revs. If you’re after a pop-and-rumble “listen to this/look at me” exhaust note, the GTS is a better pick.

Go beyond that peak torque range and you’re rewarded with a more visceral experience and more of a burly engine note as the V8 pelts you away from whatever was behind you. In Sport Plus mode it gathers pace with such tenacity, and pounds through the gears with such ferocity, that it’s sometimes difficult to keep up with what’s happening around you (let alone keep an eye on the speedometer).

If our test is anything to go by, you’ll need that much room for juice, too, as it churns through it. The official claimed fuel consumption is 11.5 litres per 100 kilometres on the combined cycle test, but we saw well above that – 17.5L/100km – over a mix of highway, country and city driving. Stopping all that force – this is a 2235-kilogram SUV, after all – would be a challenge, you might expect. But the Cayenne Turbo S has a pair of 10-piston monobloc aluminium calipers at the front and four-piston units at the rear, and they clamp down on vented and cross-drilled carbon/ceramic composite discs..
