Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Just read a road test artical in a car mag about the revised Porche Cayenne Turbo, and it was shocking to say the least, I guess it'll never see any Off-Road conditions really, apart from maybe a gravel driveway, and the £74,659 price tag must mean this is something special! 0-60 takes 5.1-secs and the top speed is 171mph apparently! Following are some pics of it.

I don't see the point of an SUV that can do 170 and gets 12/20mpg...And why a soccer mom would need 500 horsepower lol.

It's an image thing I believe.....they don't want their kids to see the world when they grow up, lol. I actually don't think any manufaturer builds a vehicle for the purpose of going off road anymore....apart from maybe the likes of the Land Rover Defender and possibly the Mercedes G-wagon?......I guess that's why even we in the UK call them SUV's now....

Some Jeeps are capable too, but not many people use them for that. Nobody wants to climb a mountain with their car (anymore) lol.

Another thing that pisses me off is cross-overs. Is it a car or an SUV? lol

EDIT: Subaru also makes some pretty practical off-road vehicles.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 performs slightly better than this thing for $40k and the 2006 Hennessey SRT600 Jeep SRT8 kills every SUV for $68,700.

But the Hennessey is a modified car and well...some would say "not fair". But real life tells me "fair". The mindframe of the enthusiast-forum member...

Motor Trend got the 600hp Hennessey Grand Cherokee to 60mph in 3.4 seconds.
