2008 Porsche Cayenne S AWDReview

The Best Suv On The Market By A Mile. — After a few weeks with this car I can say that this is the best SUV by far. People who always talk about BMW X5 and its road capabilities should drive one of these. It's a completely different league than any SUV. Yes I was shocked when Porsche introduced an SUV, but then I drove one, and completely changed my mind. Performance combined with handling make this car genuine Porsche. It's not the best looking car, but who cares?! If you're buying one don't get the 3.6 V6, that's just an engine from VW, which makes it only a Touareg in a nicer package, and that totally kills the "magic" of this car. If you have some extra cash to spend go for the GTS (it looks fabulous in the nordic gold) but GTS package kills the off road capabilities, which some people may wanna use. If you want something special go for the Turbo S, don't get the Turbo. The price difference isn't huge and for that little extra you get the most powerful Porsche on the market. But if you want to use it every day, the S is the best combination of fun and rationality.

Pros: Amazing naturally aspirated V8 engine, very quick, PDCC makes it handle like a sport saloon (very similar to Audi S6).

Cons: Fuel consumption (but you cannot buy a car like this and then complain that it likes to "eat" a lot.)

Insane — not for the faint hearted if u dont like speed then this is not the family 4x4 for u . its interior is well made and luxurious and there are many unique specifications that can cater to your every need. it also has plenty of room for the whole family there luggage and the dog. however the front end of the car still needs work and it lets down the overall appearence of car but this is more than made up for by that huge growl that comes from the bi-turbo 4.8lr v8 and the sports exhaust package is great

Pros: amazingly fast for a 4x4

Cons: uses alot of petrol and dont be fooled by the supposed 19mpg they tell u it does because if u touch the throttle it doesnt come anywhere close to that

Not Quite What I Expected. — The Cayenne, Porsche's cash cow, didn't really impress me. It has an amazing sound, great building quality and a good engine, but it never grabs you. The looks aren't what you'd call beautiful and the performance also wasn't what you'd expect from a Porsche. Inside, everything is very Volkswagen and not very Porsche, but that's also a good thing actually. If you're looking for a 6-cil SUV, I'd recommend the X5. Not as bling as a Cayenne, but it offers the same building quality combined with better performance. Even the diesel! The S and Turbo, that's another story of course!

Pros: Sound, Quality, Comfort

Cons: Looks, Performance, Authenticity

Great Fun But It Can't Ever Get Powerfull Enough And The Breaks Are Always Toooo Soft. — Fun car, my third Porsche, my second Cayenne Turbo, wouldn't want to miss it and would spend the money again - any time. What hurts is that the iPod can't be connected to the stunning Bose sound system yet. Just need to get a proper tuning, so far nothing good in terms of value for money is on the market.

Pros: panoramic sunroof, leather interior, new rims, ...

Cons: breaks, sound system to be updated - available options i.e. iPod

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.

Pros: Quality of fit and finish, snow, space, power to weight
It's a Porsche!

Cons: MPG, maintenance cost
