I have owned quite a few cars over the years. I purchased a 2005 Cayenne S used, with 30,000 miles. It is a great second or third car. Drives relatively great for a SUV, and has relatively great performance. Handling and power is just enough for a great driving experience. Have driven the car for 30,000 miles, and aside from oil changes everything works great. As mentioned before, there are some ac noises, but that has been taken care of by the dealer. If you are a one-car household, go for the turbo, but if you ned an SUV and have the money for a sports car, this is the best second car choice.

I got the Cayenne S and I love it. It's a great entry to the porsche family if you've never had one. I have a 911 turbo as well so it's hard to compare the performance but it's a great car. There were several issues (trunk doesn't close properly, a/c makes noise, and car sometimes wouldn't start) but all were taken care of by dealer and it runs like a beauty now.

Cayennes are awesome.

This is my 2nd Cayenne and I love it. I have put over 74K miles in my first one and so far 73K miles in this one. The vehicle has been nothing but awesome. I have it washed every week and waxed every 4 months. Take it to the dealer for all scheduled and maintenance and it will run practically forever. Car is over 6 years old now and it drives, look and feels like new. My next vehicle will be another Cayenne!

The perfect car

This probably my favorite car I have ever owned. I have gone through multiple BMWs, a Range Rove, couple of Volvos, a Benz and a few America cars too. The all around style and performance of the Cayenne S is unmatched. You may have a slight comfort advantage in a 740il but nothing else compares. Drive one and you will agree.

The hottest crossover

My wife and love our 955 known as the Porsche Cayenne Turbo. From kids to grey hair folk, the Porsche turns heads. We owned other fast cars but the Porsche Cayenne rides so smooth with plenty of power and is equipped with AWD. You can drive this vehicle 365 days a year. Visibilty day or night is superb. Acceleration could be more impressive. It doesn't set you back in your seat until it hits 3k rpm's but revs up to 7k before shifting. The front seats are designed for small framed people, not soccer player thighs. We drove all 3 models and we wouldn't settle for anything less than the turbo. It's worth the extra $10k above the Cayenne S used price. The selectable suspension, front & rear lockers. fake suede headliner, front grille define and separate the turbo from other base models.
