    Cayenne Turbo AT 500 hp

    Finnish importer Auto-Carrera has now the Powerkit-equipped Cayenne TT as it's own model (under model code E81) in the price lists.

    Looks like they have also negotiated the price of the Powerkit a bit down, now the price difference is "only" 21700 EUR (down about 5000 EUR from last month). That's a price drop of 100 EUR/HP

    The already have option E81 for many months in their Cayenne pricelist, nothing new. I don't understand what you mean by "their own model", E81 is the official code from Exclusive.

    I think the above information is a bit misleading. Yes, it is a drop of 100 EUR/HP BUT overall it still costs 434 Eur/HP.

    ...more power is just more wasted power.

    The whole topic of additional power is academic until Porsche proves that they can address the underlying safety and performance issue with the existing Cayenne turbos.

    Until Porsche addresses the hesitation issue (or at the least refines downshifts in 4th to 3rd, 3rd to 2nd so they occur like they do in other automatic vehicles) with the Cayenne,...more power is just more wasted power.

    Re: ...more power is just more wasted power.

    The aforementioned power kit includes adjustments to throttle responsiveness. Whether that will solve our dreaded hesitation issue, we will have to wait and see.

    So the press release says.

    If the power kit does have "changed accelerator pedal characteristics" and "further developed engine management" that "sportier engine characteristics", Porsche needs to prove this to me in my vehicle before I spend one dime on it or ever buy or recommend another Porsche product.

    It's not so much what the vehicle does or doesn't do. It's the way Porsche isn't standing behind it and addressing this issue in a timely manner.

    I simply meant that it's now listed as it's own Cayenne model, the price lists now have six Cayennes: V6, V6 Tip, V8, V8 Tip, TT and 500 hp TT.

    I guess AutoCarrera (sorry about misspelling it above, guys) wants to reserve production slots for E81 separately so they can be sure they get Powerkits when someone wants it.

    And sorry about this information tidbit RC, I'll shut up now.

    You don't have to shut up, I'm sorry if my response to your post was a little bit offensive. It wasn't meant to be that way. I have a real time job too (besides two little kids... ) and I don't have time to think too much about my English and good manners. Sorry again.

    There is no delivery shortage of powerkit cars, whoever wants one can get one, it is an official product and to my knowledge it isn't limited in production numbers.

    RC, you must have had a hard day because at least on my system, you replied to Kimi twice with the same answer. That why Kimi thought you were upset with him. If he didn't get the first post, the the second one was thrown in for good measure.

    That's what happens when you doubleclivk the SEND button

    Re: Cayenne Turbo AT 500 hp

    The post appeared as a double feature because while I was writing my reply, I was also tweaking around with some SQL database queries. This messed up the whole thing.
    Next time I'll close the forum (as we usually do when playing around with the database), I just was too busy. Sh.t happens.
