The SUV with a sports car's heart is back again with a new flagship model. The new Porsche Cayenne Turbo S ($147,000) boasts an increase of 50 hp over the regular Turbo, giving it 550 hp, a 0-60 mph time of just 4.3 seconds, and a top speed of 175 mph. All that power isn't good for much if you can't control it, and so it also features advanced active chassis technologies to help with cornering, agility, and comfort, as well as an analog and digital timer in the dashboard, gloss black front air intakes and rear view mirror, and 21-inch 911 Turbo II wheels. Coming to a dealer near you next spring.
Yes, it sounds a little bit like a video game title — but trust us, the Conquest Evade ($580,000) means nothing but business. Built on a Ford F550 Super Duty chassis, this tank-like luxury vehicle offers a commercial-grade air ride suspension in the front and rear, 360-degree, roof-mounted, joystick-controlled searchlights, 2+2 limousine-style seating, laptop trays, a third sunroof, an unarmored skin made from an aluminum-mild steel blend, handles machined out of solid aluminum, and a steering wheel, hinges, running boards, and even the key machined from solid stainless steel. Coming this fall.
When you're buying the fourth-generation of something, you expect a level of refinement above and beyond its predecessors — and the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover ($TBA) doesn't disappoint. All-new from the ground up, it uses an all-aluminum unibody structure — a first for a SUV — and an all-new aluminum front and rear chassis architecture to shed around 700 pounds compared to 2012 models. It pulls this off while adding nearly 5" of rear seat legroom, the next-generation of the Terrain Response system, and a range of V8 engines mated to new eight-speed ZF automatic transmissions, and retaining its legendary off road capabilities. Arriving just in time for the holidays.
