2008 Porsche Cayenne SUV S 4dr SUV AWD (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Before owning the Cayenne S, I owned a BMW 745Li. The vehicles are pretty similar. The BMW is incredible but the Cayenne is even more incredible considering`that it is an SUV and not a luxury car. The Cayenne S is well worth the money.


Best Features

Engine, the sound of the engine, rear view camera, XM radio, surround sound system

Review

Never had a Porsche until now. Owned an Acura for 8 years. Looked around for a fun SUV. Tried Highlander, Pilot, Murano, MDX, Infiniti, and then accidentally Cayenne. Wow..What a ride. Cool, full of power, firm, tight..sold on Cayenne..Excellent Sand/Havana Beige interior w/Black outside. Life is short.. Enjoy while you can. Will definitely have tons of fun with this one..

Interior layout, growling noise from engine (a real sport car), instant cooling and warming, heated seats

2008 Porsche Cayenne SUV GTS Tiptronic 4dr SUV AWD (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Ordered gts in nov 07, got it in March. Absolutely phenomenal car! Base Price $72k, beware options are numerous, expensive, and can easily add at least $15k to the Price. No bluetooth, but that’s not a problem, next week I Will have tooki bluetooth system installed (3rd party), it works seamlessly with the existing nav. Better solution that Porsche’s phone module where you would have to insert your sim card into nav to use a phone. With the ‘sport’ option enabled the car’s engine has deep, loud roar. A truly unique Porsche sound. I get 13 city, 17 highway, something I expected, especially for a 405 hp engine. Had bmw x5 4.4 for many years, this Cayenne simply blows it away in every way.


Best Features

Exterior has many more bells and whistles than the ‘S’ model, looks WAY better.Handling is perfect, car extremely responsive - the PDDC option is well worth it’s $3.5K price. Bose system sounds great! Acceleration is superb! Love the interior; everything is immaculately finished – just perfect!


Worst Features

Nothing

2008 Porsche Cayenne SUV Turbo 4dr SUV AWD (4.8L 8cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

The "Oh my god I can't believe how fast and loud that gorgeous SUV is" look I get from drivers when I roar past them, is alone worth the $130K I spent on this vehicle. It may not be as pretty as the Range Rover or as practical as the X5, but it is definitely the most fun to drive. I only wish they made a bigger gas tank because I'm constantly having to fill it up (approx. 10 mpg). I've previously owned a CLK Benz and an Audi Allroad, and they don't even compare to the '08 Cayenne Turbo in acceleration and handling. Even though the price is ridiculous, you only live once, and it would be a shame if I died and didn't get to experience the thrill of driving this once-in-a- lifetime vehicle.


Best Features

Engine sound, smell of leather interior, panoramic sunroof, obnoxious acceleration, Ferrari and 911 turbo type handling and power


Worst Features

Exterior styling is improved but still gets mixed reviews. Turbo should come with all the options. I shouldn't have to spend an extra $35K to get it fully loaded.

Review

I'm not a car enthusiast, but this vehicle is simply extraordinary. I actually look forward to getting in and driving it. I've owned Land Rovers and BMWs, and this vehicle blows them away. It's in a class unto itself.


Worst Features

Bluetooth and iPod capability should be standard in 2008.
