Sridevi, Bollywood’s one of most beautiful and loved actresses made a fantastic comeback with English Vinglish after 15-years of gap. The English Vinglish star has affection for powerful and fast cars. She owns a fleet of luxurious and expensive cars including the Porsche Cayenne, which was gifted as birthday present by her husband Boney Kapoor. The Cayenne is one of the most popular celebrity cars in India, which is also owned by various other Bollywood actors including Hrithik Roshan, Arjun Rampal, Bipasa Basu, Priyanka Chopra, and the south Indian actor Prithviraj.

Launched in 1995, the Cayenne was the first V8 engine powered vehicle from the German automaker Porsche. The second-generation of the SUV came in 2010, while the current facelifted model was launched in 2014. Inspired from the VW Touareg and Audi Q7, the Cayenne features more sculpted creases, new curves and styling elements. It’s significantly compact and more stunning than its predecessor.

The interior ergonomics are excellent including the forward and behind of the gear shift selector, upward sloping centre console etc. The elevated driving position provides clear road view. Seats are extremely supportive, and offer ample legroom and headroom. What adds more to its comfort level are entry and drive system (keyless entry-and-go), automatically activated boot-lid, panoramic sunroof and four-zone climate control system. Optional rear seat ventilation, soft-close doors, surround camera and a performance package - Sports Chrono - are also on offer. 

Porsche cars are known for their drivability and commanding road presence, and the Cayenne isn’t an exception. The Diesel S engine, with higher torque output, is more powerful and prompt than the V8 petrol motor. The Cayenne diesel is powered with a 3.0-litre, V6 engine that churns out a maximum power of 245bhp between 3800-4400rpm and a peak torque of 550Nm  at 1750-2750rpm. It accelerates 0-100kmph in 7.6 seconds, and has an electronic speed limit of 218kmph.

The S Diesel varaint offers 385 horsepower at 375rpm and 850Nm at 2000-2750rpm. It is capable to achieve 0-100kmph in 5.4 seconds with a top speed of 252kmph. The Cayenne S and Turbo trims are powered with a 420bhp, 3.6-litre V6 bi-turbo and 520bhp, 4.8-litre bi-turbo V8 petrol engines, respectively. The former completes 0-100kmph in 5.5 seconds with a top speed of 259kmph, while the latter one takes 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 279kmph.

The entire engine range offer outstanding performance and driving dynamics that appeal enthusiasts. These powertrains are paired to a 8-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission. Despite a high and heavy body-built, the Cayenne is an absolute fun to drive. The body roll is well-controlled and the ride is composed and balanced, thanks to the air suspension and Porsche’s PASM (Porsche active suspension management) ride control. The stunning design, plush and comfortable interior and powerful range of engines are the key attributes that favor the car, and make it quite popular among celebrity cars in India. It’s also among the top-selling Porsche cars in India.
