    2003 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Review

    Outstanding Performance On And Off-road — OUTSTANDING performance. Acceleration and handling were great. I drove this vehicle AND the non-turbo version upon invitation by Porsche when the vehicles were first introduced. Porsche had it set up at Pomona Fairgrounds with a short asphalt course and an off road course to demonstrate the vehicles' off-road capabilities. These vehicles are very capable on AND off-road. But then there is the cost. The standard version was great in acceleration and the Turbo was Stunning.

    Pros: Awesome Acceleration, Handling, Braking, Off-Road Capabilities

    Cons: Cost, build quality was reported to not be very good

    Best Compromise For An Avid Driver With Kids — If you want a fast, comfortable, reliable and agile car that can carry a full family plus luggage, look no further. The Air Suspension is a must, ditch the spare wheel for the bass booster and tire repair kit (come with an electric air pump under the passenger seat). It is actually fun to drive fast despite its elephantic weight, you will tire the brakes and tires quickly though. Not great off-road capabilities but good enough for most.

    Pros: Porsche engine & driving with cargo space

    Cons: Look questionnable, definitely not green

    Chelsea Tractor On Coke — Driven it a few times, has the Czajka seal of approval because my brother owns one and everyone else in my family loves it. As you can imagine-it has a lot of space for the kiddy seats and good boot space for all their stuff and whatever you want to lug around in it. In those aspects it works well for the typical 4x4 driver. Added to that it has some meat behind it-those big gas guzzling engines don't do much for the environment but get you from A to B as quickly as you want and remarkably stable even at high speeds. My problem is the fact that its U-G-L-Y (which is suprising given that its a Porsche) both internally and externally. It looks like a cross between a boxster and 911 on stilts at the front, then the designers couldn't be arsed with the sides and the backend so they just decided to leave it to the work experience boy. Internally looks like a BMW-especially the dash on the passenger side. I don't like 4x4s as it is-the sheer size of them plainly annoys me-that high off the road and feeling as if they are the width of the road just takes away from the feeling of driving, it seems clinical-too far removed when driving should be about pleasure and being involved.

    Pros: Great family car, good speed, stable, safe

    Cons: Feels like your driving a tank

    Very Capable - On And Off-road — Very capable on AND off-road. Great performance. Acceleration and handling were great.

    Different But Not My Thing. — Very rare, probably the fastest 4x4s you can buy and the list is endless on what options Gamballa will do to it if money is no matter. Very nice inside detail and the exhaust note gives that sound of an old 60s-70s American V8 muscle car.

    Pros: The experience of insaine power in a 4x4.

    Cons: Cost to buy plus cost lost when selling it on and the cost of running it.
