The new 2013 Cayenne Turbo S is quite simple, really. It’s the most powerful SUV Porsche has ever produced, with 550 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque on tap. That colossal grunt can propel the Cayenne Turbo S to 60 miles per hour in a scant 4.3 seconds and onto a top speed of 175 miles per hour. Keep in mind that those numbers aren’t from a featherweight 911, but a big, all-wheel-drive SUV that can haul more than just golf bags.
There aren’t a lot of supercar manufacturers that will openly publicize how much a car costs while using an online configurator. Try and get a price on that pretty, new Ferrari FF you just built, and you’ll be disappointed. It’s worse at Lamborghini, which doesn’t even offer an online configurator. Thankfully, Audi also builds cars that the a large percentage of the 99 percent can afford, which means we can build über-equipped R8 Spyders that cost as much as your house did 10 years ago.
When you talk about accessorizing Godzilla, other people might think of a guy in a lizard suit wearing lots of jewelry and fancy shoes. You and we think of loading up the Nissan GT-R with options in an online configurator (or, for a lucky few of us, at the actual dealership).
