The Porsche Cayenne Is The Best Tractor Ever

Illustration for article titled The Porsche Cayenne Is The Best Tractor Ever

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!)
