The Cayenne was Porsche’s first VEHICLE. Back in 2002, when it came out, the SUV was the saving grace of the German brand, which at the time, was in a bit of a pickle. But just because Porsche’s first SUV has been built out of necessity more than anything else, doesn’t mean it wasn’t engineered in the typical-for-Porsche, pedantic manner.

We assume that most buyers of the VEHICLE opted with regard to the Tiptronic unit with the same number associated with gears plus this one is likely equipped with it. Still, the German born SUV is capable of reaching 60 mph (97 km/h) from a standstill in just 6. 0 seconds and on to a top speed of 156 mph (251 km/h). To put things in perspective, an early Porsche 911 (996) Carrera needs about the same to get to 60 mph (97 km/h), and unlike the Cayenne pepper, you can’t live in the particular small 911 .

Powering through obstacles is important in courses like Hell’s Gate, and the Cayenne’s 400 horsepower from its V-8, as you will see, are more than adequate. The big The german language also comes with a central locking differential, low-range gears from the factory, and six-piston Brembo brakes. The only upgrade to the car is the 32-inch, General ATX tires, wrapped around factory, 20-inch wheels. To make things more interesting, the Porsche Cayenne is being benchmarked against an Acura MDX from the same period , having a 2. 5-inch lift kit and 31. 5-inch all-terrain tires. As you can see in the video below, the Porsche Cayenne does not make it easy on the better-prepared Japanese SUV.
