BEST of the BEST 2014 | Wheels | SUVs & Wagons: Porsche Cayenne Turbo S

It may be the Porsche that purists love to hate, but the Cayenne is also the brand’s biggest seller, because it offers all the conveniences of an SUV while retaining the character of a Porsche. The Porsche Cayenne Turbo S (www.porsche.com) is the top-of-the-line Cayenne, featuring the model’s highest levels of luxury and performance. With a starting price of $146,000, it costs nearly $36,000 more than the base Turbo. Though Porsche has made the Cayenne capable of off-road travel, most will never venture from the asphalt, where the Turbo S handles like a tall sports car and can sprint from zero to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 175 mph. The vehicle’s 4.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 generates 550 hp and 553 ft lbs of stump-pulling torque.
