Awesome! — Beautiful and stunning SUV. Driving this vehicle is exhilarating. It makes your drive to work something to look forward too. I get compliments on the vehicle daily, porche cayenne is an eye catcher. Treat yourself to the Porsche Cayenne experience.

Pros

The fact that it's a Porsche.
Mediocre Interior.
I like the gearbox and the two holders on it's side.
Looks good from the front
Good and smooth drive.
Agile SUV (though not for the desert)
I like the steering wheel.
It's available in many options (adaptive headlights etc...)
The front's beautiful

Cons

A little cramped for a full-size SUV
X5 takes the cake
Sometimes delicate (when u dont take it to service!).
Not reliable enough.
Ugly from the back

It's My Mom's Car... Don't Have Any Pictures Of It But I'll Find It Soon — Interior- not so impressive... not as comfy as other BMW's or Mercs. Actually it's a bit cramped from the back (for a full-size SUV) but there's lots of boot space. Exterior- It's very agressive from the front but from the back it's ugly... overall exterior I don't like. Handling- the drvie's good Performance- It's high on petrol, don't service it and it will be no more (trust me... i've gone thru it) Overall impression- Of course, it's a Porsche... and the sales are high... so who am I to say anything??

Cayenne 6 Cylinder — Second Cayenne. I had an S before . This truck still has enough power allowing for better MPG. I do miss the S power. Fabulous vehicle for long trips, plenty of room for the class and very comfortable. Wish it had better Bluetooth connection. Of course it is 6 years old.

Head Turner — Not the daily driver, but when I need to step out with the family gotta do it in style. Put 20k in upgrades. Not your typical Cayenne that's for sure. Just another testament that with hard work and dedication we all can achieve our Stuggart Dreams .

I Love My Porsche Cayenne — I love the handling of this SUV. Build solid. I love the exterior and interior look. Gas mileage isn't that great, but it an SUV. Really enjoy driving this beast. I love the sound of the engine.

Cayenne Turbo — Good motor but way too big. Perfromance is amazing for a 3 ton car 0-60 in 5 secs...but so thirsty and a pain getting in car parks etc. Very practical though as its a van with the seats down!
