The base Cayenne comes with a single-turbo 340-hp 3.0-liter V-6 (zero to 60 mph in a claimed 5.8 seconds, top speed of 152 mph), while the Cayenne S is powered by a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6 with 440 horsepower (4.9 seconds, 164 mph). Those are the only two variants Porsche is talking about right now, but well before the new Cayenne hits U.S. turf, Porsche will have unveiled the Cayenne Turbo with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 rated at 550 horsepower. Every third-gen Cayenne is fitted with an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission.
A new Lexus LS f 500 made its debut, complete with a new 415-hp twin-turbo V6. Lexus might have something a bit hotter in store for its big sedan, though. 0-60 time to be close to 3.5 seconds. This will be a sweet car.
