    After breaking in a brand-new Cayenne Turbo for a week, I finally see why this is Porsche's most popular model. Unlike the.

    EXECUTIVE EDITOR ROGER HART: I'm not sure it's so easy to condemn this thing anymore. Porsche has made a ton of dough selling these.

    Seems like a different world now: After breaking in a brand-new Cayenne Turbo for a week, I finally see why. Notable modifications to this car include an electric vacuum pump and hydraulic steering pump, allowing the car to function even when the engine is deactivated. Unfortunately, my nights with this hp sled were hampered with the snowstorm, which had me trudging through drifts and lots of ungroomed roadways.

    I'm not sure it's so easy to condemn this thing anymore. Porsche has made a ton of dough selling these cars, and you really shouldn't be able to go this fast in something this big. The execution here is exquisite. Yep, it is north of large, and if you are in the market for an SUV and have the wallet, why wouldn't you drive something this good?

    Looking back, it's strange to realize that Porsche launched the Cayenne almost nine years ago. My, how time flies--and how it changes things.

    Seems like a different world now: Remember the shrieks of horror and accusations of blasphemy that reverberated from every nook of Porschephile central? Funny to think now how I agreed with much of this--hell, it's almost comical to recall how so many of us agreed.

    But it seems like a tragic waste of time, thought and energy to me. You can say that the marque has priced itself into the stratosphere of only the privileged and elite, but if the company's core lineup of sports cars has suffered somehow from the unwanted influence of its blasphemous SUV sibling, I've seen little evidence to support it.

    What does this have to do with anything in ? Well, it should allow you to embrace the Cayenne on its own, without feeling like you are betraying Ferdinand Porsche's spirit.

    You'll find it a difficult task to locate someone who drove the original Cayenne Turbo and did not walk away impressed by its abilities, and the new model takes everything up a level to keep the model perched atop the performance SUV peak.

    First, this version looks worlds better than its predecessors, and the new, Panamera-like interior is excellent in design, appearance and functionality. The exterior is more aggressive, more cohesive and yes, more Porsche. The lower hood and more steeply raked rear glass are welcome changes, as are the excellent and supportive sculpted sport seats.

    The Cayenne is also a bit larger, with wheelbase increased 1. The turbocharged V8 means the Cayenne remains stomach-twisting fast, and the chassis is well up to the task, something that always impressed us about this suburbia shredder since birth. It simply does things that seem to defy all laws of physics, making 4, pounds feel lighter and nimbler than it ever should.

    Astute observers will note, however, that the new version is about pounds lighter than the first generation--another welcome improvement. With a quicker-shifting, eight-speed gearbox and shorter final drive, mileage improves while the 0-tomph time drops from 5. The air suspension controls the chassis very well, and drivers should appreciate the new all-wheel-drive setup, which sends percent of the power to the rear unless slippage causes a need to send some power to the front.
