Just took delivery

So far this is the most beautiful, powerful and smooth driving tech marvel we have owned! The interior Bordeaux Red interior is gorgeous and the technical layout of the center panel, and dash is awesome if you like separate buttons/switches for everything. The panoramic roof is to die for! Thanks Porsche!!!


The perfect mix of sports car and suv.

Great car. Great price. Really enjoyed working with Greg Bancroft and the entire Porsche Charlotte Team. The 2017 Cayenne S e-hybrid doesn’t disappoint. I recommend the car and the dealership to everyone.


Fast, Reliable and fun to drive

Porsche has made an excellent SUV. Very comfortable and a pleasure to drive. The Electrical Hybrid Engine is very smart and within 50 miles radius, I get over 60 MPG while in the Sport mode, the car becomes a sport car.
