Around the track the weight of the Caterham favors it greatly. The Cayenne simply has to take a brute force approach with power as the center of gravity, braking, and weight are all working against it and it shows. The Cayenne posts an impressive 1:26.8 laptime. The Caterham on the other does a 1:24.8 beating the Cayenne by two seconds.
The fact the Cayenne Turbo S is within two seconds around the track of a car designed for the track which weighs almost 3700 pounds less speaks volumes as to the quality of the Cayenne as well as how far the idea of the performance SUV has come.
