The new Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, just released  in Detroit, is the first SUV to crack the eight-minute barrier at the Nürburgring. Wolfgang Hatz, head of Porsche R&D says, “Our Cayenne is always very very quick. It is doing 186 mph.”

Porsche promises the Cayenne and Macan are the only SUVs it intends to make. Nor will the Macan get a V8. While Porsche’s smaller crossover will surely continue to get faster with new versions, the Cayenne will always set the standard for full-size performance SUVs.
