I thought that the Porsche Cayenne was the last SUV I'd ever consider buying, but after a test drive, I was sold. It's sexy, stylish, turns great, and has outstanding breaks. Plus, it is safer than other SUV's. this truck is excellence at its best.

My wife says this is the only SUV I could've bought; and it's true! Good performance with great handling keeps alive fine Porsche heritage. Manual 6-speed is the only way I'd buy this vehicle, just wish it'd be the V8. Not to take anything away from the Tiptronic, but this is a drivers car, shift it yourself. Not that my wife minds being a passenger - she definitely doesn't. Firm, stable, & comfortable, not floatly; just what I expected. Good hauling capacity - not the biggest in the SUV world, but just fine for our needs. Friends & neighbors love the looks & it always gets positive comments. Installed Porsche factory bike carrier on roof - no wind noise at all. Gotta drive it to enjoy it.

Fun to Drive Could not believe Porsche forced me to pay extra for a spare wheel and inflatable tire on $55,000 car. They had given me a sales brochure showing two hunting dogs in the rear. The brochure had no date. It listed a spare as standard. They refused to supply one . they claimed spares were not standard on '04 models. The brochure was not dated.

This car fills the niche of a Porsche that has the performance and feel of a sports car that the whole family can enjoy. People give me a puzzled look at the car because they do not know what it is. It has a solid feel with an incredible Porsche handling. Just returned from a 3,000 mile trip. The car was very comfortable, quiet, even with all the horses purring. At the end of long day of driving, I was not fatiqued due to the comfortable seats with lumbar support and the excellent sound system. Heavy snow is no match for this car even without using the low range. This car is definately a winner.
The base Cayenne receives a six-speed manual transmission and Porsche's Drive-Off Assistant System, otherwise known as a "hill-holder" clutch. All Cayenne models now feature a power rear tailgate and body-colored side sills and fascias. An optional panoramic power sunroof debuts this year, along with an available rearview camera system. A comprehensive performance upgrade package is available on the Turbo model through Porsche's Tequipment program. Highlights include a horsepower increase to 500 and upgraded brakes.
