2009 Porsche Cayenne GTS 4dr SUV AWD (4.8L 8cyl 6M)

Review

Will reiterate everything the pulluru already stated. This is an amazing vehicle. Very hardcore. I'm 6'4", and have ample room in the front and rear seats. The cargo capacity in the rear is compromised, however (i.e, very small for an SUV). The ride is really good, even with 21" wheels, even in San Francisco. Sports-mode transforms the vehicle. Handling is ungodly, with cornering speeds being higher than my 2007 Cayman. PDCC is a must, though I would pass on the variable steering, as it is very artificial and "weird" in 20- 50mph city driving.

Favorite Features

Engine is fabulous. Good power above 2K RPMs, and blasts smoothly to the redline. Ride. Height and dampening control. Room in front and rear seats. Handling. Mighty brakes. Yet, a real SUV with a 2-speed transfer case. This is a fabulous, hardcore truck.

Suggested Improvements

Do not like the variable steering. Gear shift and clutch are heavy - this is a manly truck! Cargo capacity is rather poor. Cup holders only accept soft-drink size containers. Would prefer a hand brake. Geared very low (4:1), which is great for acceleration, but tiresome for a daily driver.
