Porsche has announced its 2024 Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid, set to be released in both SUV and Coupe body styles. The vehicle marks the automaker’s most powerful Cayenne yet, producing just over 729 horsepower via its plug-in hybrid powertrain.
The electric motor contributes 174 hp, while a revamped 4.0L V8 twin-turbo engine delivers 591 hp, enabling an impressive 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 183 mph — likely capped by an internal limiter.
Horsepower isn’t the only upgrade, the new Cayenne E-Hybrid also boasts an expanded high-voltage battery of 25.9 kWh, discreetly placed under the trunk area. This improved battery works in tandem with the new 11-kW onboard charger, which ensures a full charge in less than 2.5 hours using a wallbox or charger.
Other performance features include adaptive air suspension that minimizes both dive and squat motions as well as Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus as a standard feature. Optional upgrades include Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control and rear-axle steering.
As for design, the vehicle sports Turbo-specific front fascia that flaunts sizable air intakes and air blades painted in a glossy black finish, while the wheel arches and lower rear fascia, painted in body color, accentuate its performance-driven appearance. Other unique features include brushed aluminum dual exhaust tailpipes and bold red brake calipers.
At the interior, the vehicle expresses both luxury and sportiness, through aluminum accents on the dash and doors, as well as a Race-Tex roof liner. Porsche also offers a heated GT Sport steering wheel, 18-way adjustable leather Sport seats, and an alternative 14-way adjustable leather Comfort seat option. Porsche has also integrated the latest luxury upgrades of the 2024 Cayenne, from HD-Matrix Design LED headlights to a cutting-edge digital instrument cluster.
Dealers are expected to start receiving allocations by quarter two of 2024, with retail expected to start at $146,900 USD for the Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid and $151,400 USD for the Coupe variant.
