When Porsche, introduced an SUV in 2003 the faithful were up in arms. How could the maker of iconic sports cars "sell out" and rebadge a VW as a Porsche? Fast forward and the top two best selling Porsches are both SUV's. The first generation Cayenne lived up to its name; it was indeed hotter than a chili pepper.
All you had to do was drive one to understand that so long as sports car engineers tuned the suspension and drive trains, even a 5000 pound truck could be made to drive like a sports car. Especially if it was equipped with a sophisticated 4.5 liter twin turbo V8 engine producing a class leading 450 horsepower and stump pulling 457 foot pounds of torque.
This first gen 2004 Cayenne Turbo has been enthusiast owned and is in excellent overall condition and has proven to be bullet proof reliable, get surprisingly decent fuel economy and will flat fly down the road and handle the corners like a car half its size. It doesn't look like every other boxy SUV, in fact it takes its styling cues more from a 911 Carrera than a truck or sedan. It's also equipped with every creature comfort and technological gizmo offered at the time. Surprising to some is the fact that these vehicles are highly capable off road with multiple suspension settings to optimize performance and safety in virtually any driving situation it may encounter. These trucks can easily pull boats and trailers, offer excellent outward visibility and are just easy to drive.
This Cayenne has a clear blue Texas title and a clean Carfax. No wonder as it has been well maintained with no expense spared as needed by the current owner. It looks and drives great. The interior is especially clean and everything works on the car. It has an upgraded AV/NAV system that rocks!
