It has a strong V6 engine that some believe is too weak for the Porsche Cayenne S, although the company feels that this is just an entry-level offering. The current V6 engine delivers 290 horsepower while the torque at 283 pound-feet gives 43 hp and 54 lb-ft. The Porsche Cayenne S has good acceleration and can take you from 0-60-mph in about 9.5 seconds.
There are two options where transmission is concerned. You can get the Cayenne S with a Tiptronic automatic transmission or the regular six-speed manual transmission. There are two different modes in the Tiptronic automatic transmission system. The two modes are the Normal Mode and the Sport mode.
The Porsche Cayenne S has two different engine models. You can go for the V6 or the V8. The V6 has 17-inch wheels while the V8 has 18-inch wheels. Of course you can always customize the wheels to include a 19, 20 or 21-inch wheels. The interiors and the body of the Cayenne S have no significant change from the 2006 model.
It has the same styling and same controls. One of the integrated systems in the SUV is the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), which comes with a new active stabilizer bar system. This will help the car to maneuver through any condition. The only addition includes a power-operated tailgate system and a tire-pressure monitoring system.
The 2008 Porsche Cayenne S will be launched into the market with a starting price of $44,295, which is $1,280 more than the 2006 Cayenne.
