Re: this SUV will EAT YOUR R (myVolvoS60T5)

It may be faster in a straight line (Okay. It IS faster in a straight line <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">), but there’s more to track performance than HP.<p>I don’t know much about the S, but I’d hazard a guess road holding, handling dynamics, and low center of gravity aren’t its strong points, relative to the R (...the R’s handling flaws nonwithstanding).<p>regards,<br>MAJ

Re: this SUV will EAT YOUR R (myVolvoS60T5)

Honestly, who cares?<p>The Cayenne Turbo S is old news. Even the earlier, less powerful one was quicker than the R in a drag race, though the R actually beats it to 130 mph on up, according to C&D. The Cayenne is a mailbox on wheels, and drag takes its toll eventually.<p>And the thing has an MSRP >$110,000. It isn't even remotely in the same ballgame as the R.<p>If you want to worry about SUVs that will beat stock Rs, think about the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 or the Chevy Trailblazer SS, both of which will out-drag the R. They each cost 1/3rd the price of the Cayenne Turbo S. And the Grand Cherokee SRT8 does 0-60 in 4.5 sec, besting the $110-grand Porsche.<p>You could even embarass youself against...horrors...a Suburu Forester 2.5XT. It does 0-60 in 5.9. Sure, you can beat it. But just think of how you'll feel launching hard and then taking your car to redline in the first two gears just to nip a Forester by a couple of tenths.<p>And in the non-SUV department there are EVOs, WRX Stis, Mustang GTs, and every SRT8 from Chrylser. But I would not trade the R for any of them. And that has to do with much more than 0-60 times.

Re: (MagoonR)

One really neat thing with the Porche is that it has adjustable ride height suspension. Put that bugger in sport mode and it drops almost 2 inches. It really helps the handleing aspect. I really like reading ALL posts and it has been a bit boring in here lately. Keep them coming. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Never experienced the Turbo S, but I did go for a ride in a friend's new Cayenne Turbo last weekend. There were 4 of us in the truck, and without a doubt, it could rip my C70 to shreds. Pretty sure it will do the same with the R.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Rzindubs</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Ever seen the Titanic avoid the iceberg?<p>Ever seen the fatty Porsche SUV go around a hairpin turn?</TD></TR></TABLE><p>Yup! Heck I was in the thing going through the twisties, it held the road like glue and took the corners better than most cars.

Re: this SUV will EAT YOUR R (myVolvoS60T5)

I don't know about everyone else but i don't see much <U>U</U>tility (SUV) in that vehicle. I know it is in the same class as my 3/4 ton suburban but i doubt it could haul as much load or people. It's only utility i can see is that it is fast which for some is plenty enough. I wouldn't feel a bit bad getting dusted by any of the "SUV"s that have been mentioned above because they are meant to be fast street vehicles not a legitimate utility vehicle. When i get dusted by a suburban/tahoe/expedition/excursion or the like then i might feel a little embarassed. Just my .02 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>maybe from a standstill....TILL the 1st corner and than it's way behind <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>and btw...turbo Porsche's in the past were a cheap alternative for a Ferrari or lambo...but the SUV's wheight and hight just kills the handling. (but IT's the best suv on the market)

This is the list price of that Cayenne you posted and it's almost tripled the price of an R.<br>
