Amazing Vehicle

We have never driven anything like this. The handling and comfort is amazing. We bought this used after a lease, and it feels like new!


My Car of a Lifetime

Always wanted a Porsche. Excellent rear seat leg room and seat comfort. Many switches to learn. Owners manual not very explanatory. Great responsive car for driving and acceleration. Looks better than many the same or more expensive.,


Very beautiful SUC, welcome to test drive.

I bought this car this May, it was a really good experience, powerful and beautiful. I need to go back to China this coming year so I need to sell it. It is my favorite card until now.



Test drove a cayenne with great expectations and considering all the factors, believe it or not, I prefer my Ford explorer sport in every way except the cool name plate. Explorer has all the now must have comfort and convenience options while Porsche didn't have remote start but did have some silly gadgets and a higher cost of ownership across the board. If you want the cool name tag, buy Porsche. The smart money looks elsewhere.


Seems like a solid vehicle

Beautiful design - inside out. More than adequate space inside. Stable ride and it’s fast. Definitely a head turner. Surprisingly it’s not a gas guzzler.


Super sweet

This car is engineering at it's best. Bad xxx car. Super comfortable seats fit like glove.lots power and love 2 to be seats LOVE THIS CAR


Comfortable, but badly flawed electronics

Our warranty and suffering period began in September 2016. The surround cameras started to fail already in October 2016, a control unit was replaced in January 2017 and the cameras were calibrated (three or four times in all). They failed again by October 2017, January 2018 and post warranty by March 2019 more frequently. Snowflakes, especially at dusk, will set off the warning sensors, even if stopped at a traffic light. I check the sensor often — it is clean. The adaptive cruise control and related emergency stop (ACC/PAS) failed in May 2017 and later in October 2017. During a trip from NY to SC in March 2019 ACC/PCC failed (and recovered sometime later) a total of four times. The central computer (PCM) froze completely twice during the warranty period and was finally replaced in March 2018. This stopped problems for less than a year. The recurring failures have just been very annoying; thus far only when the car braked on its own while we tried to pass a truck on the thruway near Buffalo did we feel truly threatened by a failure. Apart from that we like the car. It is, in particular, very comfortable on long trips and/or with more passengers. Obviously, our expectation was that we would buy a new, functioning car, free of the kind of failures abundantly experienced during the warranty period. NY state’s expectation is that during the first two years there should only be a very small number of failures of some component before the car is rejected (lemon law). We prefer an amicable solution and stuck with the dealership throughout the many repair attempts. The Porsche Customer Commitment Center "is not technical" and assures us that the dealer's service department "has been utilizing and exhausting all of the technical resources and internal contacts when working on your vehicle." "Exhausting" seems to be the operative word here. The car complains, e.g., about the ACC faults and asks to be serviced, the service finds no faults, and that's it.


My most awesome 'xxx mover'.

This is my 4th Porsche, n the most 'lux-comfortable'. It nudged out the X5m BMW; on front grille styling, but not It's so awesome to drive, I feel like it's a secret uncovered..


Excuse not to purchase a sports car

Fantastic truck ! If you could only purchase one car ...this would be the one ! Perfect for on road and off road ....power at will.


Don?t get into a accident with a new one

My wife bought the cayenne new got into a fender bender . My wife?s in a rental it?s been thirty days and they still don?t know when the parts are going to ship when I talked to dealership and cooperate neither one is willing to help me out with a rental. I feel that if u sell a car here in the United States u should stand behind it and take care of the customer when it?s because u can?t get the parts ... I talked to both of them and they both give the run around thanks Porsche I won?t by another one
