    Cayenne Turbo S - reunited with an old friend

    After scratching the Range Rover itch I have returned to the king of SUVs. This is my 5th and I was determined not to get another black one, so this is in Meteor Grey with  a distinctive two tone Espresso/ Cognac interior, plenty of carbon and a whole host of extras including Burmeister sound system . Note the colour coded painting of the lower parts which I think makes an enormous difference whilst not being an overpowering addition in the way the Sport Design package is.  The facelift lights look equally cool at the front and back. I have not driven it much as it only came today, but the additional torque, tighter suspension, and more aggressive sound despite no PSE are immediately evident. The ceramic brakes really add confidence in one's ability to stop from a high speed. Here are some quick shots:

    Nice. The painted parts do look much nicer than black

    How much weight do the running boards support?


    Re: Cayenne Turbo S - reunited with an old friend

    Very nice! kiss Love the two-tone and carbon interior.

    Congrats! wink

    Not sure of the absolute figure, but they are fine for normal sized adults - we had them on an older one and my wife wanted them again - they look way better on  this generation.

    The extra painted parts do look good . Congratulations !

    Other than the running boards (don't like them on a sporty SUV), it looks great. Classy interior and exterior. kiss

    Lovely - out of interest, why no roof rails? (I can see a pana roof, but thought you could still add them?)

    Thanks for all the kind comments everyone . Day 2 report is that the start up 1st gear has clearly been neutered for soccer moms so even from start up you need to have it in Sport setting.


    Re: Cayenne Turbo S - reunited with an old friend

    I think I have the same 2 tone interior with brown seatbelts.

    I actually forgot what options I picked alreadylaugh

    I had a V8 Supercharged Autobiography. It looks great but it was much slower and the drive was just soft and wallowy.

    I hope you did not forget yellow stitching this time? Smiley It would be a shame if you would have to reorder a new one with the yellow bits and bobs Smiley

    They won't let me have yellow seatbelts so I am doing brown stitching and seatbelts.

    Re: Cayenne Turbo S - reunited with an old friend

    The seatbelts could be ordered as seperate parts...don't see the problem other than additional cost.

    Porsche don't make yellow ones anymore for their current lineup.

    Re: Cayenne Turbo S - reunited with an old friend

    Are you sure Exclusive department can't get you yellow seatbelts for a current generation Cayenne? Not necessarily installed from the factory but as an extra (for retrofit?)?

    Re: Cayenne Turbo S - reunited with an old friend

    Yup. I went through every level of Porsche. Trust me I tried everything. One reason I changed from black on black with yellow to black on black/cohiba with cohiba seat belts and cognac stitching. (I remembered wrong earlier in this thread that I ordered espresso/cognac)

    The last body that have yellow seat belts is the 997.

    Just find a top notch auto upholsterer and get them to do it for you custom.

    Not on safety item like seatbelts. 

    Anyway, the black/brown 2 tones seems very pleasing to my eyes right now.

    Love the interior. How does that match up with the RR Autobiography interior.

    I know everything is relative but switching from a V8 Supercharged RR because it was slower than the Cayenne Turbo is puzzling. Are there roads where substantial power is needed where you live?

    BTW, I own a RRS and though I have some issues with it, overall its has been a great SUV to own. I do agree it is somewhat soft but in a SUV it is something I desire.Smiley
