'Trep's Choice: The Porsche Cayenne Turbo

You're reading Entrepreneur Middle East, an international franchise of Entrepreneur Media.

The distinctive design of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo is perhaps what will first draw your attention to this sharp and sophisticated vehicle, but take its wheel and that's when you will realize that there's a lot more to this Porsche than its (stunning) looks. Fitted with a 4.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, the Cayenne Turbo has been billed as "a vehicle that handles the daily commute as supremely as it does the Corkscrew at Laguna Seca."

The Cayenne Turbo's 8-speed Tiptronic S gearbox is also made to adapt to your individual driving styles, which ensures you a comfortable experience at the wheel, while also lowering fuel consumption. Of course, these performance specs shouldn't really come as a surprise given that the Cayenne Turbo is, well, a Porsche, and this sensibility seems to have governed the design of its interiors as well, where practical ergonomics go hand-in-hand with supreme styling.
