Next week at the North American International Auto Show, Porsche is suppose to be unveiling the 2013 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S which is expected to produce 550HP from it's turbo V8. I also heard an optional "Turbo Power Kit" will be available.

Can't wait for it! Feel free to post anything 2013 Cayenne Turbo S related here :)

They added 50hp



Porsche has ramped up the performance of its second-generationCayenne with the introduction of a potent new Turbo S model that is claimed to storm from 0-62mph in just 4.5sec and hit a top speed of 176mph. It has recieved its public unveiling today at the Detroit motor show.
Set for UK sale this month priced from £107,460, the new Cayenne range topper runs lightly modified version of the standard Turbo’s blown 4.8-litre V8 engine – the same unit used by the Panamera Turbo S. Changes include a more free flowing inlet manifold for improved breathing, increased turbocharger boost pressure and remapped electronics among other detailed tweaks.
Power climbs by 42bhp over the Turbo to 542bhp, making the new Turbo S the most powerful Cayenne model yet. Torque also increases by 37lb ft to 553lb ft. The added reserves bring a 0.2sec reduction in the 0-62mph time and an added 3mph at the top end without any detriment in combined cycle fuel consumption or average CO2 emission which remain 24.6mpg and 270g/km respectively, according to Porsche’s official figures.
The four-wheel drive Cayenne Turbo S adopts the same chassis configuration as the Cayenne Turbo with an air suspension and Porsche’s active damping control along with hydraulically operated roll bars to rein in body roll and a torque vectoring system together with an electronically controlled rear differential lock.
A series of subtle exterior styling changes, including a black high gloss treatment for the headlamp housings and exterior mirror housing and uniquely styled 21-inch wheels, help signal the Cayenne Turbo S’s added performance potential. Inside, there are standard carbon trims and a new leather upholstery package.
