2017/2018 porsche cayenne turbo s - The 2017 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid Platinum Version plug-in hybrid thumped up into Car California ranges and also penalized them to the tune of 5373 extra pounds. That's 54 extra pounds less than we tape-recorded for the somewhat less lavish non-- Platinum Edition variation during screening in Michigan. Hey, California gravity is groovier than Michigan gravity. Or perhaps it was the almost $10,000 in added alternatives on the Michigan auto that added mass.

No matter, this Cayenne is among the heaviest Porsches that C/D has actually ever evaluated, amounting to 937 extra pounds greater than the combined mass of a 1963 356B 1600 and a 1965 911. At that, it is 204 extra pounds lighter compared to a 2015 Ford F-150 4x4 that put on a Platinum badge. So it has that going all out.

The Cayenne E-Hybrid's ominous mass indicates that a recognizably Porsche-like owning experience doesn't come normally. It needs to be cajoled and also (occasionally) tricked to deliver the comments, attachment, link, as well as feeling of complete satisfaction that should constantly come with Porsches. Okay, currently throw the plug-in-hybrid system into the mix.

Is That a Frog Stuck in Your Wheel?
It's the Acid Eco-friendly brake calipers that introduce to onlookers that this $86,995 Cayenne is a lot more eco exemplary than Porsche's other big, fuel-slurping SUVs. It's not a bold announcement as merit signaling goes, yet the bright-green color contrasts strongly with the remainder of the machine's even more restrained colors. There's additionally an environment-friendly shadow behind the lettering on the E-Hybrid's badges that adds another halo of great objectives to the appearance.

Past those greenie hints, the Cayenne S E-Hybrid quickly could be mistaken for other Cayenne in line at California's Calabasas Grade school waiting to pick up a next-generation Kardashian. In the appropriate prosperous group, this thing blends in.

The electric material of the E-Hybrid system is conceptually a carryover from the currently superseded Panamera E-Hybrid, including its Audi-sourced 333-hp supercharged 3.0-liter V-6. It's a transformative half-leap ahead from the initial Cayenne hybrid system also. The electrical motor/generator generates 95 horsepower as well as 229 lb-ft of torque (41 horses and also 66 lb-ft less than the electric motor in the 2018 Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid). It's fed by a 10.8-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, installed under the freight flooring, that can be replenished from an optional onboard 7.2-kW battery charger using a conventional SAE J1772 connector or from Porsche's own charging system that installs on an owner's garage wall (it's also J1772).

Integrate the internal-combustion engine's outcome with the electrical motor's and the overall readily available drive is 416 horsepower at 5500 rpm with 435 lb-ft of torque available from 1250 rpm. Everything goes into an eight-speed transmission and also out with both axles to 4 295/35R -21 Yokohama Advan Sport V105 tires. And it works.

With both the engine as well as the electrical motor contributing, this is a truly fast SUV. It whizzes, whirrs, and also wallops its way to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds, strikes 100 mph in 13 secs level, and also slaps down the quarter-mile in 13.8 secs at 103 mph. That's bullet-train acceleration for something that weighs in like a personal rail car.
