    Re: SUV test from Crazy to insane, Cayenne included...

    Holy crap that VW is sideways! Did it flip?

    Re: SUV test from Crazy to insane, Cayenne included...

    lol i would like to see that drift of the Touareg on video !!

    @TopherV: Guess will know by tomorrow

    Re: SUV test from Crazy to insane, Cayenne included...

    WOW, is the Cayenne also capable to climbing stairs, scaling up and down slopes like the H2? Would love to see some pics of the Cayenne doing stunts like that too.
    Take care though

    The Cayenne did't do the stairs due to its low profile "20 tires...

    Re: SUV test from Crazy to insane, Cayenne included...

    but did the testers say theoretically speaking, if it had higher profile tires, would it have been able to do it?

    Yes, it would have gone up the stairs if it had a lower rim size.

    The Cayenne presented some problems (cough, cough) during the test, lurching or software problems was the first, the H2 owner said: "Its like if the engine would choke". Transmission presented problems too, and this is not new to the Cayenne world. Biggest let down, transmission would not let us drift the Cayenne as we wanted but were able in the T-reg The "20 inchers gave us little traction off road and ultimetely suffered a puncture in the 4th test, we had to leave it in the middle of nowhere and continued in the H2 and T-reg, but the mood was already sadden within the Porsche camp. We decided to leave it out of the stairmaster competition due to, once again the tires. And on the road despite being the fastest by far, drifting was not possible because the damn transmission. Of course all this will not be on my report but that's how it went. The T-reg did all the test impossed without a single complaint, yes its not the ultimate off roader as the H2 but the overall performance was tremendous, no lurching, no software problems, good torque and performance, it ran well on road and we ultimately used it to drift

    Something we commented during the test was that when things are turned into real world conditions, results tend to change. We tested the Cayenne at the PDE where Porshe creates a controlled enviroment and run apples with apples, no real point of comparisson, and magazines are just full of crap when it comes to testing So well here you have it, I hope not to disturb anyone with my comments but I just write what I experienced, this being a huge Porsche enthusiast.

    Re: SUV test from Crazy to insane, Cayenne included...

    Interesting comment on the drifting, I have video of a TT drifting a lot. I will try to dig it up.

    Re: SUV test from Crazy to insane, Cayenne included...

    Hi Frissen,
    The Cayenne is unable to drift because of the variable power distribution between the front and rear axles of the tramsmission as compared to the T-reg with 50/50 power ratio??
    Does PSM have anything to do with the disability?

    Nope, I have drifted with plenty of Cayennes



    including the one in the test, but this time we had a hard "clicking" noise and it would slow down for no reason... later it would not upshift... diagnostic... tranny failure... not uncommon in the Cayenne...

    Re: SUV test from Crazy to insane, Cayenne included...

    Wow, Nice drift going sideways you've got there.
    I suppose there would be tremendous tire wear for a 2.5 ton pulling that stunt
    Who manufactures the auto tranny in the Cayenne?

    Re: SUV test from Crazy to insane, Cayenne included...

    Lol, yes i've got a few video's of TT's drifting ... awesome stuff! btw frissen, the Touareg that was tested, was it a V10 TDi model? or the V8? or what?
