Is the Cayenne a Turbo? Nice catches, avishar. Welcome back to Kolkata!

The purple cayenne is a Turbo. See quad exhaust. There is one more picture of this Porsche in one of my earlier posts.

Are you sure?

The quad-pipes are an optional extra even on the 'lesser' variants of the Cayenne. It could be a Cayenne S as those wheels are most common on the 'S' variant. However, they could be optional as well!

The blue Cayenne in the previous picture is the pre-facelift model and is different when compared to the black one in your most recent post. One can opt for the quad-pipes even in the face-lifted Cayenne S. They look similar to the ones on the 'GTS'

Also, you must keep in mind that there are several Porsches, including 911s, across the country, that sport badging that has been selected by the owner and this does mislead quite a few since they can paste any badge they want! It's extremely hard to distinguish Porsche variants.

EDIT: The 2nd picture of the blue Cayenne isn't clear enough. The grille is generally a giveaway. I shall take your word for it!

The lambo is HUGE news! The Cayenne in question is indeed a Turbo, suhaas. Seen it quite a few times.

Shamik, its not. Today had a chance to see it up close for nearly 20 minutes as my office cab was close to it all along the EM Bypass. The front bumper is what tells you whether its a Turbo or not.

A Turbo has much bigger grills on the front bumper, the grills go all the way upto the headlights. This one had smaller grills than the turbo. The main trouble is that it has the spare wheel mounted on an external brace which hides the Cayenne badge (generally in the centre of the tailgate) so its difficult to say whether its a base model 3.2 or the GTS or the S.

Moreover,it doesn't have the trademark twin bonnet bulges of the Turbo.I think its a S.It can't be the GTS because the car in question is a pre-facelift last generation Cayenne which didn't have a GTS variant.
