If you want your Porsche to be tweaked to its maximum capacity, many would automatically check out RUF . This German tuner specializes in all things Porsche and are known to refine and enhance Porsche’s models better than most. Their most recent concoction is a tuning package for the Porsche Cayenne Diesel. This new kit is available in two upgrade versions with a max output of 310 HP (from a standard 240 HP). The package can be applied to the Cayenne version powered by direct-injected 3.0 liter V6 turbo engine mated to eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission.
In the first package called the Upgrade One, the Cayenne Diesel’s performance is increased to 288 hp with a peak torque of 580 NM. It includes the optimization of the electronic engine management system and is priced at 3,850 € plus VAT. In the second package, Upgrade 2, the power boost is taken to an awesome 310 HP and a peak torque of 630 NM. This upgrade includes a modified turbocharger and the optimization of the engine management system and is priced at 7,300 € plus VAT.
We enjoy a good power boost just as much, if not more, than anyone, but a couple of exterior modifications would have been nice to see on the Porsche . RUF has decided against those types of upgrades at this point, but we are hoping they will add a bit of style to this package at some point.
Press release after the jump.
The new Cayenne Turbo is powered by a direct-injected 3.0 liter V6 turbo engine. With its eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission and a reduced vehicle weight, this SUV feels and drives lighter than ever before.
