Porsche Cayenne Review

When enthusiasts think of Porsche, they think of the iconic 911. They might even think of the Cayman or Boxster. Very few of them will think of Porsche’s best-selling vehicle, the Cayenne. Even if these enthusiasts don’t think the Cayenne is a proper Porsche (I think it is), it’s a vehicle that has literally saved the company from bankruptcy, and is the reason why Porsche vehicles are so great today.

When the world decided that SUVs were the way to go, that left sports car companies like Porsche without an option to cash in on this new market. So, to compete, Porsche built the Porsche of SUVs; called the Cayenne. From the get-go, it has been one of the fastest, most-powerful, and best-handling SUVs on the face of the earth.

Today that tradition continues with Porsche offering a variety of engines, depending on how fast you want to go. They are available with tons of options, so you can customize your Cayenne exactly how you want it. It also has the creature comforts you’d expect from a modern luxury SUV. For many, it’s the best of all worlds.

So what else is there to say about the Porsche of SUVs? They come in either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, and you can spec them out with navigation, heated and cooled seats, rear-seat entertainment, supple leather, and more. Plus, they have a decent amount of storage space to haul you and your children or friends anywhere you need to go.

But you can also spec it with carbon ceramic brakes, the most powerful engine Porsche produces, and head to the racetrack on Sunday and wipe the grin off of Corvette owners’ faces. It’s just that awesome of a car.

Maybe there’s no room for a third car in your garage and you really want a Porsche? Maybe you can’t justify owning a 911 and its relative lack of practicality? Don’t worry, Porsche still wants your business and they make the Cayenne just for you.
