7. Porsche Cayenne Turbo
Ever since the first Cayenne Turbo appeared in the early 2000s, the market for quick, luxury SUVs was born. This Porsche with four doors, a raised body, and all-wheel-drive may have offended a lot of brand purists, but it also brought much to the segment in terms of driving dynamics, performance, and prestige.
Fast forward 15 years and there is a new Cayenne Turbo with even more power, faster acceleration, and better road holding than ever before. The heart of this lightning-quick SUV is the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that pumps out 550 HP, sending it to the eight-speed automatic and intelligent all-wheel drive. The result is an impressive 3.7 second 0 to 60 mph acceleration time.
