The Porsche Cayenne...The Best SUV Ever?



Is the Porsche cayenne the best SUV ever made? It just may be! As loyal Porsche owner since the mid 199o's I never thought that I would come to the day I would move to driving a Porsche SUV (I mean who thought there would ever be such a thing)? But since 2002 when the Porsche Cayenne was introduced I have held off even test driving it at my local Porsche dealer...until last Saturday. It was a beautiful day out, and my wife was feeling under the weather, which meant that my driving companion was out of commission for the afternoon. I went out to get some cold medicine to help her allergies, and the next thing I knew I was pulling into the Porsche dealership (I couldn't resist). I had seen the latest Cayenne commercials on TV and I needed to see what all of the hype was about.

I was driving a Cayenne S model. Inside it was beautiful, a sporty feel with the classic Porsche luxury amenities. I immediately felt at home in this new Porsche SUV. As we began the test drive I noticed the unbelievable pick-up this luxury sport utility possessed. I was surprised at how well it handled compared to the other SUVs I had previously experienced (mainly various Ford Explorer and Toyota SUV models). Like the sports cars they are so famous for this SUV truly felt sporty. With 385 horsepower, a V-8 engine, and a 0-60 time in only 6.4 seconds I knew that this would be the next car I would be buying myself. The sticker price was $69,300. If you want to experience an amazing luxury SUV that drives like a Porsche sports car, then don't wait for so long like I did.
