The Porsche Cayenne Is The Best Tractor EverS

Way back when, Ferdinand Porsche designed tractors. Now the Porsche Cayenne his company builds has returned to the fields, lugging a Dutch farmer's 21' sod roller, if only for a photo op and some bragging rights.

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo generates an impressive 450 HP and 450 lb-ft of torque from its twin turbo V8, more than enough to pull the roller along the ground. The nutty farmer had to modify the implement's hitch a bit to fit it to the Porsche, but it works. Of course, the Cayenne isn't fitted with an auxiliary hydraulic pump and rear-mounted quick connects to work the lift wheels (though we're sure Porsche would be happy to fit one for a tremendous price), so this has limited use other than a sight gag. Still, plugging away at fieldwork in a plush Porsche beats a dusty tractor cab any day. Sorta gives a new meaning to the term "Chelsea Tractor" doesn't it? (Hat tip to duurtlan!)
