The Porsche Cayenne is one of the 21st century’s biggest automotive trendsetters. It proved that Sports Utility Vehicles could actually live up to the first letter of their own acronym, and lent credence to the idea that sportscar firms could build high-riding cars with off-road capability, paving the way for Lamborghini, Ferrari, Lotus and many more to follow suit.
The example we offer for sale is a 2018 Porsche Cayenne 3.0 V6 Tiptronic S, one of the first third-generation examples. It has completed just 29,840 miles with one owner, and has full Porsche main dealer history. It features optional extras including a panoramic sunroof, 20-inch Cayenne Sport wheels, a heated steering wheel, front heated seats, automatically dimming interior and exterior mirrors, a reversing camera, privacy glass and side airbags in its rear compartment.
Being a large off-roader, the car is certainly a practical daily driver for those with families. It comfortably seats five in style, and has a boot big enough to swallow luggage for almost any situation.
The Cayenne S produces a rather incredible 434bhp from its twin-turbocharged V6 engine, and will accelerate from 0-60 in 4.9 seconds if you put your foot to the floor. Power comes through an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic gearbox. However, if you drive considerately you can get over 20mpg out of the car, which is good economy for a large non-hybrid SUV.
In the corners, the car is every bit a Porsche, with the firm’s sporting heritage and engineering finesse evident in the car’s sharp, precise handling.
Our example is available for £49,995. As a low-mileage, current-generation car with full service history, our Porsche Cayenne would be a wise purchase for your next family wagon. And, should you want it to, it can be just as spritely as its sportscar cousins.
