The 2012 Porsche Cayenne Turbo is an SUV featured in every Porsche Expansion of the Forza series, although it was only available through the Porsche Bonus Car Pack in Forza Horizon 2. It returned in Forza Horizon 3 in Forzathon events, but appears as standard in Forza Motorsport 7.

It was available in Forza Horizon 3 as part of the Fun In The Sun Forzathon event held in June 2017, and in the Getting Spicy Forzathon event held in February 2018.

The Cayenne Turbo was introduced in 2012 for the second generation of the Porsche Cayenne full-size SUV. It is offered alongside the naturally-aspirated Cayenne S as a higher priced and faster model with twin-turbocharging that raises its power output to 500 hp (373 kW).

The Cayenne Turbo received a model refresh for the 2015 model year that introduced several technical revisions and updated styling, later followed by a successor in 2018.[1]

Description

When Porsche left LMP racing in 1999 to pursue development of an SUV, the racing community missed the German innovator and dominant multi-year champion. It begged the question, “What is Porsche doing building an SUV?” Well, not only has the Cayenne been a profitable venture since its release, the SUV market has never been the same. Running errands and picking the kids up at soccer in a 500 horsepower twin-turbo driven 4.8 liter makes more than a statement. The Cayenne Turbo’s top speed is above 170 mph and its 0-60 time is just over four seconds. Coupled with an all-wheel drive system that keeps all that power under control on any road condition, it is now OK to use “SUV” and “performance” in the same sentence. Compare its ability on the track with any other SUV and you will see the Cayenne is still in a class by itself.

Specifications

The Cayenne Turbo was redesigned with lightened platform and engine components that reduce weight to 4784 lb (2170 kg), thus making it signficantly lighter than most of its SUV rivals. It boasts high lateral acceleration values such as 0.92 g at 120 mph in Forza Horizon 3 that is enabled by a double-wisbone suspension at the front and multilink suspension at the rear.[3]

The Cayenne Turbo is powered by a 4.8 litre quad-cam V8 engine with direct fuel injection and twin-turbocharging. It produces 500 hp (373 kW) at 6000 rpm, 516 ft·lb (700 N·m) of torque at 2250 to 4500 rpm and redlines at 6700 rpm. The drivetrain consists of an eight-speed automatic torque converter transmission and a multiple-plate clutch differential.[4]

Performance

With a 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h) acceleration time in under ten seconds and a top speed of 197 mph (317 km/h), the Cayenne Turbo is one of the fastest cars of its type when it comes to acceleration and speed. Thanks to a tight steering and firm chassis, the Cayenne Turbo performs equally well in terms of handling but shows some drawbacks in acceleration when exiting mid-speed corners due to a sluggish third gear.
