Looking for a vehicle that combines the performance of a Sportscar, with the comfort and drive of an SUV? Porsche Cayenne S has got your back! Porsche Cayenne S will be there for you when you will need to drive your kids to school on the weekdays, but also when in need of an adventurous ride with your family around the hills of Lebanon.
The 2012 Porsche Cayenne S is powered by a V8-Engine producing 400, sufficient, horsepower. It goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds, despite the heaviness of the 4-wheeler.
In terms of the car’s interior, Porsche never fails you. Whether it’s a 2-seater, 4-seater or even this 5-seater, a beautiful interior is always the number one rule in Cayenne cars; from its steering wheel, interesting dashboard, comfortable seats and door handles, down to it’s large trunk, this car has got it all.
The V8 engine of the Porsche Cayenne can last up to 250,000 kilometers, however, its maintenance is not cheap, and just like any sports car, the lower the odometer is, the better its performance is.
It is indeed an SUV but cannot be driven on a speed bump or a famous Lebanese pothole on the highway as a Jeep Cherokee without worrying about the flat tire you will get given that the car is fitted with a 20” wheel. Also, according to many Cayenne S owners, this car consumes more oil when you’re driving upwards and on mountain roads. Given that the original retail price (MSRP) of this SUV was around $135,000 in 2012, you can now find it somewhere between $16,000 and $22,000, depending on the condition and option-load of the car.
Despite this decline in the car’s price, Cayenne S maintains the value you are accustomed to. The SUV still runs as amazingly as it would if new! Not to mention, whatever you are willing to spend on the Cayenne, whether it’s a V6 or a V8, your money will be well invested.
