Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT Has Porsche’s Most Powerful V-8

The twin-turbocharged V-8–powered 2022 Cayenne Coupe will arrive in the U.S. next year starting at $182,150.

Porsche has introduced their most powerful V-8 engine, which is a 4-0-liter twin-turbo engine that produces 631 horsepower with 848Nm. It will be installed in the Porsche Cayenne Coupe, and the German manufacturer says that the pilot Lars Kern has set a new record for the lap of the SUV on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, having completed the 12.9-kilometer course for 7: 38.9. The new Cayenne will arrive in the United States, only in coupe form, next year, starting at $ 182,150(€153,323).

Total output might be less than the Turbo S e-Hybrid’s 670 horses, but that powertrain uses an electric motor and a 14.3-kWh battery pack. This is solely the work of the internal-combustion engine. Porsche upgraded the V-8’s crankshaft, connecting rods, and pistons; enlarged the turbos’ compressor wheels; and increased the fuel injection flow rate and the intake and cooling systems’ airflow to make the additional power. The eight-speed automatic transmission also shifts quicker compared to other models, and the all-wheel-drive system’s transfer case is water cooled. Porsche claims that the Turbo GT will launch to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds, hit the quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds, and reach 299km/h(186 mph).
