On Monday, Aug. 12, Porsche revealed that the fastest Cayennes in the segment, the Turbo S and Turbo S Coupe, have been outperformed by two newly launched hybrid models, The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and the Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe.

Both are powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine capable of putting out 541 horsepowers coupled with an electric motor producing 134 horsepowers. Together, the pair generates 670 horsepowers total and produces 663 pound-feet of torque. The Cayenne Turbo and Cayenne Turbo Coupe produce just 541 horsepowers.

This new hybrid powertrain allows both models to sprint from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds and to reach a maximum speed of 183 miles per hour, their gas-powered counterparts only reach 177 miles per hour.

A third, lower-tier model was launched on the same day as well, The Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe. This coupe has a maximum power of 455 horsepowers, 0 to 60 miles per hour acceleration time of 4.7 seconds, and a top speed of 157 miles per hour.

All three hybrid models feature lime green brake calipers and have exteriors that have been slightly modified to increase model aerodynamics. Each comes standard with a Sport Chrono Package which especially tunes the vehicle for sporty performance.

The two high-performing models have been further enhanced with Porsche’s Ceramic Composite Brakes, Dynamic Chassis Control and Torque Vectoring Plus.

All models arrive with a 2020 model year denotation and are available now. The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid starts at $161,900 (about P8 million), the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe starts at $164,400 (over P8 million) and the Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe starts at $86,400 (over P4 million). HM/JB
