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.

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 .

Pros

Extreamly solid vehicle, Porsche builds a quality product. The ride is superb and not one single rattle in 4 years! The leather interior has held up so well it almost appears that it has not been used.

Cons

Navigation system is not that great and you can not move the map around to see what lies up ahead easily. Lack of bluetooth and having to remove your sim from your phone to insert it in the dashboard, in order to make the onboard phone work is a nuisance.

Serious power, handling and looks

Epic — The exterior remodel of the cayenne with addition of direct fuel injection really made this year model stand out. Developing 500 hp and 520ftlbs of tq, this is the most powerful SUV on the planet. These trucks originally sold for over 100K but can be purchased for less than half of that if you are a patient buyer.

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!
