Who here is an SUV lover? The Cayenne turbo makes me think twice.

    Another quick opinion thread: I was lucky enough to be apart of the "Porsche Cayenne Experience" (even got a nifty T-shirt oooooo uhhhhh) The Cayenne Turbo is sickening! Hands down. It's heavy as hell and you feel it, but damn it is quick. I enjoyed driving it. They had tarmac and off road courses and it was very impressive on the off road. But $90k it wasn't. Now if it handled like a Infiniti FX45 (I was very impressed with the FX) maybe $90k.

    Tell me what you think. Here is a video to help you out.

    Well, I'm not a huge fan of SUV's. I think there should be a TON more to a fun car then the acceleraction IMO. I've never driven a Cayenne Turbo so... I suppose take my opinion with a grain of salt.

    I dove the turbo, I thought is was okay for what it is. I just cant not get past the loks (reminds me of a Sante Fe with a turbo nose glued on). I am the first guy getting the new X5 4.8, alittle slower, but it comes fully loaded at alittle over 70K alot less than the turbo, well equipped.

    My wife has 15K miles on her's since aug. GREAT TRUCK. Mud, snow, highway. Easily worth the $ compared to a BMW. Adjustable ride height is super. No problems.

    Agreed. With the air suspension in sport mode, it corners on rails.
