A Porsche Cayenne in one form or another has been my camera car for the past dozen years.

Here’s a new one for 2022 that Porsche describes as, “An SUV to the eye and a race car beneath the hood.”

It is reportedly the fastest Cayenne ever made. With over 630 horsepower (not a typo) and a twin-turbocharged V8 engine, it goes from 0 to 60 in 3.1 seconds. And it’s even a record-setter, recently laying down the fastest lap time ever for an SUV at Nürburgring Nordschleife.

Most of my subject cars don’t go that fast, so I guess I’m OK with a base model chase car for a while.
