Porsche At The 2013 North American International Auto Show

The 4.8-liter twin-turbocharged Cayenne Turbo S benefits from an additional 50 hp compared to the Cayenne Turbo. The Cayenne Turbo S accelerates zero to 60 in 4.3 seconds on its way to a top track speed of 175 mph. Equipped for maximum dynamic performance, the car is equipped with Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) and the Sport Chrono package as standard.

The exterior of the Cayenne Turbo S is distinguished by front air intakes and rear-view mirror trim painted in high-gloss black. Standard 21-inch 911 Turbo II wheels with colored Porsche badges and high-gloss black accents are also exclusive to the Cayenne Turbo S, along with dual twin-tube sport tailpipes. The model is scheduled to arrive in dealerships in spring 2013 at a starting price of $146,000, not including a $975 destination charge.

Also making an appearance at the North American International Auto Show is third-generation Porsche Cayman, which was unveiled at the Los Angeles International Auto Show in November.

Re-engineered from the ground up, the new Cayman is lower, lighter, faster and more efficient and powerful than ever before. A longer wheelbase, wider track and larger wheels enhance the driving performance of the mid-engine sports car.

The 2014 Cayman is powered by a 2.7-liter engine with 275 hp, while the Cayman S produces 325 hp with a 3.4-liter engine. Both models will arrive in dealerships in spring 2013 at a base price of $52,600 for the Cayman and $63,800 for the Cayman S.

The U.S. continues to be Porsche's largest market, with 35,043 cars sold here in 2012, representing an increase of 21 percent compared to 2011. The Cayenne and 911 models contributed to the strong sales performance, increasing by 20 percent and 42 percent, respectively.
