The 2014 Porsche Cayenne can be used for off road driving, however it is more at home on the road and the Turbo S offers 550bhp and can go from standing still to 62mph in just 4.5 seconds, which is mind boggling.
It does have finesse though as the people behind the design of the chassis have been very clever as they have ensured that the car can handle the bulk. There is a V6 3.6 litre version that has to be ordered special and it is very brisk, there is the V8 S which offers 395bhp and then there is the V6 diesel which is a good all-rounder but which lacks power. Then there is the new V8 4.2 litre which is more efficient by 7.1mpg but which is nearly as fast as the petrol V8.
The 2014 Porsche Cayenne is also available in the GTS and this blends the V8 420bhp engine with suspension that is focused along with a bodykit that is totally outrageous. The layout is that of a saloon with high central tunnel being home to the gearshift, along with plenty of buttons to press for the infotainment system. There is plenty of space in the rear and the front and boot space is more than enough.
The 2014 Porsche Cayenne is sportier than a Range Rover Sport and you can expect the costs of running to be very high on all of the models but the diesel. You might also want to bear in mind when you pull up to fill her up that the tank will hold 100 litres.
