    2009 Porsche Cayenne - Base (M6)

    Pros: Comfort-- I'm 6'5

    Cons: Trunk a little small

    Advice: Drive it-- you'll love it.

    I have two of these-=- one V-6 and another V-8.. The v-8's performance is like having a Corvette in 4 wheel drive.. Excellent snow performance as well as spors car handling at very high speeds. My wife drives her V-6 and she loves it -- little slow for me, but pretty standard for it's size against other cars..

    2010 Porsche Panamera - 4S AWD

    Pros: The sport car performance without the limitations

    Cons: The fat key that requires fumbling at insertion

    Advice: No 'skeletons' yet!

    Only have 1900 miles on the odometer, so haven't given it everything, but I can't imagine that off the track you can use any more performance than this car provides, and I'll bet it will give more on the track than lots of lighter two-door sport cars. The transmission/suspension has three sport settings at the touch of the button that range from soft and economical to 'Holy S--t!!'. The new dual clutch transmission is very quick but has a few surprise jerks when coming to a stop at the light. When set to do so, at the long lights, the engine will shut off as long as the foot's on the brake. Overall fuel economy is just under 20mi/gal. I love it!

    2009 Porsche Boxster - S

    Pros: Great performance

    Cons: Not the most comfortable car, especially for a tall driver or passenger.

    Advice: If you want great Porsche performance, and don't mind feeling a little cramped in a roadster, buy this car.

    The 2009 Porsche Boxster is a flat-out high performance machine. The six-cylinder engine offers more power than you might imagine, and the suspension is tuned to maximize handling. As roadsters go, it would be very difficult to beat this one. The top goes down in a mere 12 seconds, and the engine hums along beautifully. For all that you get, the price is nice - around $47,000.

    2008 Porsche Cayenne - GTS (M6)

    Pros: Raw power

    Cons: Hesitant acceleration

    Advice: Look at the lexus RX

    On my short date with the Cayenne, and my beautiful wife, I realized that this is an exceptional Sport Utility vehicle. The Porsche Cayenne cannot really make a decision on whether it wants to be a sports car or a sport utility vehicle. I didn’t mind the waffling, as the engine sounds like a tyrannosaurus rex living under the car, and the tight fitted seats and steering feels, well, strong and good. With a sticker price above $90,000 you better be getting an extinct dinosaur as an option. I had high hopes for this 2009 Porsche Cayenne test-drive and was left unfull, not satisfied, and pre-occupied with the Porsche Cayenne’s less expensive and very good competitive set. Then again, if you have a lot of money, really love Porsche, and want space but power and speed – the 2009 Porsche Cayenne is for you.
