2005 Porsche Cayenne S AWD 4dr SUV (4.5L 8cyl 6A)


Apart from some minor electrical problems with the remote the car is glitch free. I am a dad with children ages 5 and 7. I also own a Porsche 996 Carrera. If it is raining or I have carpool duties this car is my absolute favorite to drive. It drives like a sports car and is plenty fast. The true beauty of this car is its cornering stability and braking . As for acceleration and speed , I have to remind myself that high speed driving is not a good idea with young kids in tow and therefore I don't regret not buying the Turbo. If you don't have young kids get the Turbo. The Porsche Carrera is the best car but for rainy days and kid towing I absolutely love my Cayenne. Get it fully loaded - don't skimp.

Best Features

Park assist , navigation, full leather interior and the moon roof are all great in this car.

Worst Features

Better remote control range and Porsche needs to make a sport exhaust for guys like me . hmmmm... I may trade mine in for the exact car in a Turbo.
