You mean Turbo S? I think they made it because they were intimidated by the new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8... 420hp 6.1L V8 and costs just over $40k

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

It's true, I suppose, that when you're you're four wheelin' down and dirty, axle deep in soft mud, you could use all that excess torque to spin the wheels fast enough, dig yourself through the earth, and pop out the other side. And pop out ahead of the V-8 Jeep.
Sorry, having a non-SUV moment.
Think light weight. Low CG. High lateral grip. OK, better now.
And hey, if this pays the freight for development of better sports cars, I'm with it!

I was watching the most un-edited reality show on TV the other day the
one about Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown? and noticed they used the
Cayenne Turbo as their daily driver. Does that model only come in Black?
I think I've seen 20 of them in NYC and they were all black.

Limoncello...good point...instead of flying to China we could just tunnel to it. Hopefully we will have some downforce otherwise we will fall off the world.
