Ive wanted a cayenne for a long time. This is a turbo with what seems like every option. We bought online and had it delivered. From the moment we made our decision, we had the car within 24 hours. Inside and out - the car is in perfect shape. Will be giving the manual a good workout learning about all the options. It has the deluxe seats package which are incredibly comfortable. The drivers seat warmer/cooler isnt working. Taking to my local repair guy in a few days. I researched it and hopefully its just a loose sensor. So excited to have my dream car. Were taking it on a road trip next week!

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.)

Pros: Power and handling are just phenomenal

Cons: Tire wear

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.)

Pros: Its a Porsche, nuff said!

Cons: None! Its a Porsche! Once you own one you will understand!

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.

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

Pros: Fast and handles excellent

Cons: seats 5

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: amazing interior, great handling, way fun to drive

Cons: expensive, not great gas mileage
