Multi use vehicle, comfort or sport or towing.

I have the S model. In regular mode it feels like a heavy, comfortable cruiser yet handles better than most SUVs. In sport mode it feels fast, light(er) and agile. Interior is very comfortable and well appointed. I also like the low range and lockable diffs for off road use. Only downside is some what poor gas mileage due to weight and V8 engine, but that is what allows it to tow up to 7,700 lbs.

Bought this car about a month ago. Car runs and looks new. Handles like a dream, very fast. Mixed highway and city milage about 17mpg. Prices on the used market very reasonable if you shop around. Haven't had to fix anything yet, but I undestand repairs are very expensive. Oil change, 9 quarts and filter about $150.

CAYENNE TURBO IS AMAZING

by from Miami, FL on April 17, 2014

The Cayenne Turbo is an amazing vehicle. Drives like a dream, crazy fast, stable, reliable, fun and looks awesome. Have only changed oil, tires and breaks. Solid vehicle. Worth every penny.

Best value for the money

The 2008 cayenne turbo had significant exterior upgrades and came standard with direct fuel injection. This SUV develops 500hp and 520ftlbs of tq making the cayenne turbo the most powerful SUV on the planet. The off road handling of the truck is more than capable especially when equipped with Porsche dynamic chassis control. Winner of many industry awards, the 2008 has depreciated from $100k+ down to less than half making this Porsche an exceptional buy. The only drawbacks noted were the navigation system is a bit dated and there was a major model update in 2011.

This is now my third Cayenne, and actually own two right now. It's the complete balance that I love about the Cayenne. If you are searching for a sports car, but really need the practicality of an SUV it doesn't get much better than a Porsche Cayenne. From a sport perspective, the Cayenne's handle like a sports car (ever seen an SUV drift?!?!), brakes are incredible and the feel from the extra thick steering wheel is solid and predictable. The sound from the exhaust is intoxicating, and the acceleration will make you smile. From an SUV perspective the Cayenne is very capable, but you may need to change tires as the sporty Cayenne's come with very wide tires (like a performance sports car), and thus are horrible in snow/ice. However, a simple change to less wide all seasons or even snows and the Cayenne turns into a winter weather beast. Cayenne's can even come with a factory tow, so it's no stranger to pulling. The rear seats are comfortable, and it actually as more room than an ML (which we had for 1 year and traded to get back into the Cayenne). Styling is a matter of opinion, but I feel the Cayenne just looks fast. It maintains the sports car look/feel with a sleek hood, slanted rear window, and wide rear quarter panels (this SUV has "hips"). Overall, for me it's the swiss army knife of SUV's, actually having the Sport, which many Suv's overlook. One of the only vehicles that I can have spirited drive on my way to Home Depot, to then load it up and take bags of mulch, lumber, etc home.
