    Not Perfect.....but I Still Love It! — I cannot afford a new, 650hp Range Rover.....so this is the next best thing out there, bar none. I have owned BMW X5, Lexus RX and Land Rover Discovery....and this SUV is the funnest thing that still gets my blood boiling....plus, it's a still a Porsche skin-deep!

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

    Pros: ~ Timeless Porsche styling. In 2004, everybody called this car ugly. Now, everybody has copied Porsche's trademark low hoodline, aerodynamic HID lights and front/side intake scoops.
    ~ Delicious exhaust note. Porsche are masters of auditory tuning
    ~ Still out-performs any new SUV made today
    ~ Incredible, 7700lb tow capacity. You won't find another SUV this solid
    ~ Excellent build quality, overall

    Cons: ~ This pig is very thirsty
    ~ Eats brake pads
    ~ Transfer case is heavy and cumbersome
    ~ Driveshaft bearing fails
    ~ Plastic coolant pipes

    Fast Suv For A Porsche Enthusiast Turned Family Man — This crossover is probably one of the best out there with the Audi Q5 / Q7. Comfortable, fast, but a bit on the heavy side. Due to too many electronic assistance? Enjoyed it for road trips and commutes. This car is also convenient for the urban type who need to carry things around. The V8 is smooth but thirsty. Maintenance is pricey.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: A great speedy SUV for the Porsche enthusiast who now has a family

    Cons: Quite expensive to maintain. Heavy.

    Clean Title. — I love how quick this SUV is. Leather is still in great condition and drives smooth. Has a flashy look to it that always gets the attention from others. Driven it for about a year and have had 1 problem due to recall. Cooling pipes were plastic and failed. Changed to metal piping and no problem since.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great SUV. Comfortable driving with a great look.

    Cons: Not much to say here. Gas prices are up, so it cost around $75 to fill. Some buttons are scratched up.

    Suv On Steroids — The Cayenne S is a true Porsche. Despite all the naysayers. It's just a Porsche for grown-ups who need more than 2 seats and some cargo space. I used to drive a Range Rover and Porsche succeeded in creating a more comfortable ride and one that can really hold its own vs fast luxury sedans. More torque and power would be welcome because it's a big car. I would go next with the turbo version or may be the Hybrid.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Elegant, powerful, comfortable and safe ride

    Cons: Could use more power. Would go with the GTS Turbo or Hybrid next

    Amazing Performance — Porsche has the best performance suv. the acceleration is abt 5,sec to 100km and it handles perfectly. The suspension works extremely well and it is pure adrenaline to drive it. It is also very tough off road. love it!

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

    Pros: eveything

    Cons: nothing

    6cyl Cayenne — I have the 6cyl due to the cost of gas in socal, and yet I wish I brought the GT or better yet the GTR, due to the HUGE difference in power. Handles unmistakably Porsche, although I still prefer my old boxster to the SUV. Cabin room is sufficient, but could use a little more headroom, seats are extremely comfortable (mine has the top leather pkg). My one complaint besides service and repair costs would be the navigation system is old technology for a 2005 vehicle.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: looks, handling

    Cons: navigation
