The German SUV was modified by Porsche of Monterey and unveiled just a few months ago. Making it perfect for long journeys in the wilderness is a roof rack with a hard shell Tepui HyBox tent, a front skid plate, Hella auxiliary lighting, a trailer hitch receive, and a swing-out spare tire carrier.
This being a Turbo S, it is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.5-liter V8 that is good for 514 hp and 530 lb-ft of torque. This engine is coupled to a six-speed Triptronic automatic transmission and a two-speed transfer case with power sent to all four wheels.
