2005 Porsche Cayenne
- Performance and that solid feeling
Test drove the base Cayenne 3.2 and followed up by test driving the X5 3.0 within the next 30 minutes. Followed the same course, pushed both of them upto 90 mph.
The base Cayenne beats X5 hands down in terms of performance. Rock-solid, road hugging feel. Base engine quite peppy (I currently drive an Acura MDX). In contrast, the X5 started swaying above 85 mph - did not inspire confidence.
This week-end I will test drive the Cayenne S - can't wait...read morehide

- Look great, Performance,
- A little more power wouild be great
I purchased the Cayenne V6 about a month ago, and I am really enjoying my drive to and from work for a change. It is does not have the same brute power like the Cayenne S, but it does move quickly and you have gottta love the sound of the Porsche engine!
The steeting and road holding is great. I have never been beenhing the wheel of and SUV that was this much fun to drive and be seen in.
The only drawbacks are the lack of sn "On Star" type system, and limited audio options.
Other than that, for $50K there is nothing better....read morehide

- Every single thing about this truck is the best.
- Anyone would be drunk or on drugs to say anything negative about this vehicle.
Just simply the best. You can't go wrong with it. Just purchased one Seal Grey/Grey V6 model this morning! Buy one as soon as possible.

- Excellent power, great space, confort
- Rough Suspension, tires and oil go fast
This is the best looking SUV in the market period. They say the base model is not that powerfull but it has all the power I need for a flat city like Miami. Be carefull with tires and oil, they go pretty quickly.
Ask for the navigation system.

- Amazing handling, soft leather interior, surrounded by high technology
- None so far
I ordered my v-6 cayenne direct from the factory through my local dealer. Three months later I was in the driver seat. There is no mistaking a Cayenne on the road and it is truly a remarkable piece of automotive engineering.
While it is to early to tell whether some problems will crop up I can honestly say that in the early going this car is everything and more than what I expected. It is a pleasure to drive and I am finding my kids even want to join my on weekend errands.
Even my frisbee catching Border Collie has given me 4 paws up on this vehicle....read morehide

- Way better than the Volkswagen version
- Can't think of any
The styling invokes the classic Porsche. The handling is simply superior, although porsches are not known for handling, this SUV handles like a charm. Despite its high center of gravity, you can take corners at high velocities and it is just rock solid. I beleive I cannot rollover this car no matter how hard I try. I take corners at full throttle. I can ride at highway speeds "in the rain" at 90mph. The superior handling is amazing and it even overcomes hydroplaning....read morehide

- sharp looking, smooth ride, best thing on wheels, comfy
This is the best luxury SUV ever made! At first I was not to sure about the way it looked on the outside, but i went to the dealership and test drove one. i could not believe how nice it was on the inside. It has great power and gets pretty good gas mileage for a SUV. When I was driving it I noticed that it had a much smoother ride than ohter SUV's I have been in. it is also a perfect car for road trips because I have my kids in the back watching a DVDand has nice cargo storage for luggage in the back. The actual reason I bought this car is becasue of the gas mileage that my Suburban use to get. This Luxury SUV gets way better gas mileage than my SUrbuban did. Also this car isn't that expensive campared to some SUV's. The ACura MDX, BMW X5, and the Porsche Cayenne are all around the same price. Those cars are the top luxury SUV's i think. I put my time to research on these cars because they all are pretty much the same. But after testdriving each vehicle i decied on getting the Porsche. it just a smoother ride and nicer interior and was perfect for my family....read morehide

- Porsche styling, fit and finish. Superb handling. Drooling gawkers...
- Best performance from the Tiptronic is in manual mode...
OK, so now that people know what this car is, does it ever get attention. If you're looking for "nice car" compliments in the parking lot, this car gets 'em.
If you're looking for a truck that performs like a sports car, this car does it. V6 provides adequate performance, another 2 cylinders for $13K? Nice, but not absolutely necessary.
2005 model has additional features included and has all the kinks worked out. Very satisfied with dealer service and new vehicle reliability.
My two cents:
Do it. You know you want to....read morehide

- Great gas mileage for an suv with this type of performance ability
- Could use more interior room in the cargo area.
After being in sporty car's all of my life,I am so happy to a Cayenne.
Combining automobile performance and comfort, with suv passenger room and elevation, the features are benefits for my lifestyle.
The Porsche Cayenne is a SPORT'S car transformed into a truck. This is my first suv after many performance automobiles such as Bmw, Corvette and Audi, but I am satisfied with my choice-The Cayenne...read morehide
