2011 Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Codename: Sporty Spice

At the supermarket it's a practical crossover. At the valet stand it's a fancy badge. In the backwoods it's a surprisingly rugged off-roader. And on the racetrack it's a real Porsche. The Porsche Cayenne Turbo can transform all day long - a multi-disciplined machine willing to take on any opponent in any venue. And, like that sneaky Decepticon Soundwave jettisoning his micro-cassette minions, the Cayenne dropped around 400 pounds during its recent redesign. The result is shockingly good handling for an SUV, center of gravity be damned.

Starting price: Around $108,000
Engine: 4.8-liter, twin-turbo V8
Output: 500 horsepower, 516 pound-feet of torque
Top speed: 172 mph
0-60 mph: 4.4
Cargo capacity (behind first/second row): 60.2/23.7 cubic feet
Towing capacity: 7716 pounds
