2009 Porsche Cayenne Review

More about the 2009 Porsche Cayenne
More About This Model

Why does Porsche build a 5,500-pound SUV that can leap to 60 mph in 5 seconds and hit a top speed of 174 mph? Well, because it can. And because it knows that there are people who will gladly pay the big bucks to own such an extraordinary vehicle. While the 2009 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S may seem somewhat over the top (not to mention rather pricey) it is also a striking example of how this legendary carmaker can bend the laws of physics almost to the breaking point.

After digesting the above numbers, try to wrap your head around the fact that the Cayenne Turbo S can also whip through the slalom quicker than a Jaguar XFR sport sedan. And that it's also very capable off-road, as we discovered in the sand dunes of Dubai. The Cayenne Turbo S may be built like a Great Dane, but it moves like a Border Collie.

When it's not putting the hurt on high-brow sport sedans or rugged terrain, the Cayenne Turbo S makes for a docile daily driver. In spite of its imposing performance, it's just as happy sauntering down to Neiman Marcus as it is showing you a good time on your favorite back road. At a starting price of $125,000, the Turbo S is the top dog in the Cayenne kennel. Its 25 percent price premium over the Cayenne Turbo gets you 50 more horsepower, larger tires and some eye candy such as carbon-fiber cabin accents and unique exhaust outlets.

All things considered, the 2009 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S is an incredible vehicle that's essentially a class of one. Which brings us to one last question: How can Porsche charge nearly $1,500 extra for satellite radio and Bluetooth on this $125,000 Cayenne when both are standard on an $18,000 Ford Focus SES? Because it can.

Should I lease or buy a 2009 Porsche Cayenne?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
