2012 Porsche Cayenne Review

The 2012 Porsche Cayenne – an exceptional all-rounder. The new Cayenne features a 3.6 liter V6 engine delivering 300 horsepower. All while reaching a top speed of 142 mph and going from 0 to 60 in 7.1 seconds. Or for even more power there’s always the 4.8 liter V8 turbo. With a total surface area of more than 15 square feet the Cayenne’s panoramic roof system is breathtaking. Enjoy from all seat positions even when closed it provides a unique “open top” driving experience. Taking comfort and sports performance to a whole new level the Cayenne offers Adaptive Sport seats with memory and contoured side bolsters. For those long rides the Rear Seat Entertainment blends harmoniously within the passenger compartment. Safety comes first in the 2012 Cayenne with Porsche Stability Management. An electronic control system that uses a range of functions like Anti lock brakes and adaptive cruise control. Helping you out when you need it most. The 2012 Porsche Cayenne. The elite in sport utility.
