Best Car I Had So Far — Have this car since mid 2011 and still love to drive it (which is unusual for me as I usually trade cars every 2 years). Its'a keeper. The only downside is the tire wear as they are very expensive and mine last about 10K miles (mainly the rear ones) before I have to replace them.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Best Suv On The Road — I love everything about my Cayenne. Great gas mileage, seats, tech package, nav, cargo space, and over all look and feel. The Cayenne is the sexiest SUV on the road with not a single competitor SUV that even comes close.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Owner — Great Touring car... loved getting out on back roads and enjoy the Porsche experience. You would never believe you are driving a SUV. It's deceivingly fast and I recommend sport mode. If you love driving, this is a must have.

Cons

expensive, not great gas mileage

Simply Amazing Fun To Drive — Was looking for a car with some punch but one that also handles well in the snow and can take 3 kids to school in a pinch. Viola. Now first off, this car is not cheap, nor does it have great gas mileage (18/24), but having said all that this car is sooooo... much fun to drive. It is kind of odd, no weird that this car can handle like a much smaller sports car. In the turns, this car sticks to the road like glue. The interior is very well done - nice leather seats, great iphone integration as well as phone integration. Overall this car is a ton of fun to drive, not cheap but way fun..... After owning the car for 3 months, I have to say that I love this car more than the first day I got it.

Fast Suv For A Porsche Enthusiast Turned Family Man By Eric
