2011 Porsche Cayenne Turbo 4dr SUV 4WD (4.8L 8cyl Turbo 8A)


Was agonizing over a new RR SC, 911 or an Vantage Roadster. This car seemed to have it all and the comfort and undated interior, the lighter weight, fuel economy swayed me. We have tried to buy a Cayenne twice in the past and both time have walked away disappointed, once buying the FX and once an RR, this time, the feel was Porsche-like and I am very happy we waited. A serious Rocket propelled lounge. Watch your speed though, you can get over 100 in almost pure silence :)

Best Features

Lux feel, performance/economy, overall build quality is just fantastic, you seriously feel like this is a comprehensive vehicle, cannot be happier with it

Worst Features

why have a hitch package without the electrics ?, the key looks like a mini Porsche and serious kitsch, also not easy to hold so has been thrown on the garage floor twice already. Also would have liked floppy paddles on the multi-function wheel.

You bought/leased a $100K car and what swayed you was the fuel economy? And yet you give fuel economy only three stars? Give me a break!
