Crazy Porsche and their superSUV. Quite ugly but still very fast.

Just watch a few of the videos of the Porsche, and youll see why its the badest and fastest SUV in the world...

But why. The 0-60 tests for SUVs should be done on gravel.

The SRT-8 is undeniably faster in a straight line with some magazine tests coming up with sub 5 second runs from 0-60. It also has pretty damn good handling and stops from 60-0 in 125 feet which is damn impressive for an SUV. I would say that stock it is probably the fastest SUV right now but the Cayenne turbo is no slouch performance wise either.

Lol the porsche does 0-60 in 4.9, and the SRT-8 does it in 5.2, so on that not, the cayenne is the faster suv.

Im sorry but the Cayenne would crush the SRT-8 in stopping distance and in handling, and according to tests, the Cayenne accelerates faster aswell....

The numbers I have seen for the Cayenne puts its 0-60 at 5.4 seconds with a 13.8 second in the quarter mile. What are the statistics on the Cayenne stopping distance, skid pad, and slalom speeds if you can find them?
