With a colossal 627lbft, the Porsche Cayenne Diesel S was the torquiest car in the marques line up until the 918 Spyder came along with 944lbft. £1m hyper cars aside though, its only recently been matched by the latest Panamera Turbo S Hybrid.
To create an S version of the diesel-fuelled Cayenne, Porsche has dropped in a 4.2-litre, twin-turbo V8 sourced from Audi, but not before reworking it considerably with internal revisions, a new intercooler and exhaust system. The result is an SUV that bludgeons straight sections of road into submission, thanks to 377bhp and that almighty torque figure. Despite now weighing a hefty 2195kg, it’ll get to 62mph in just 5.7 seconds. If you’re anywhere on the torque peak, from 2000-2750rpm, the way the V8 flings this car forward as if it weighed the same as an empty crisp packet is laugh-out-loud absurd.
Porsche has tried hard to make the V8 sound as appealing as possible; an informed ear will guess fuel type on start up, but it’s superbly refined inside the cabin, and when you’re going for it there’s a real Detroit iron quality to the rumble from behind the bulkhead. And rumble on it will, a 100-litre tank meaning a theoretical 745-mile range thanks to a combined fuel figure of 34mpg.
