    Buying Cayenne?

    I want to buy the Cayenne Turbo (or Turbo S) in the next 2 months but I am not sure if it is a right move considering Cayenne II release in 2010. What you guys think ?

    Also, BMW X6 5.0 or M with cheaper price and better interior looks interesting although I have mixed feelings about the exterior. 

     

     


    Re: Buying Cayenne?

    If you can afford to wait, WAIT. If money isn't a real issue, the current Cayenne Turbo or Cayenne Turbo S are very refined and reliable products, they "aged" pretty well and you can't go wrong.

    With the BMW X5/X6M, you have a similar problem: I would expect a X5/X6 facelift around 2011. On the other hand, the X5/X6M should be faster from 0-200 kph than the Cayenne Turbo S. Not by much but anyways.

    The new Cayenne generation is rumored to be introduced early spring 2011. At some point there were rumors that the next Cayenne could come out summer/autumn or even spring 2010 but we have no confirmation for that.

    I suppose Porsche wants to see how the Panamera sells and if newly introduced technology/parts (like new interior, PDK, etc.), which will be used for the next gen Cayenne too, work well and reliable.

    From a driving fun point of view, you can't go wrong with either of the mentioned car models/brands.

    Currently, a power output of 540-550 HP is rumored for the next generation standard Cayenne Turbo, I have no rumored HP figure for a possible Turbo S. A hybrid, possibly with a supercharged V6 engine, is also very likely.

    We also heard a rumor that Porsche plans to offer two 4WD versions of the Cayenne, one with a "basic" 4WD and the other one with an optional more sophisticated 4WD. This would also involve a weight reduction of at least 50-80 kg for the basic 4WD car.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Buying Cayenne?

    My dealer had a current model turbo S on the showroom floor for a couple of months and struggled to shift it. They ended up knocking nearly 22% of it's list price to sell it I was told. Bargain hard if you are taking a current model.

    Interestingly enough they also had a few brand new left hand drive cars waiting for their European owners to collect them. With the fall in the value of the £ it makes buying a new Porsche in the UK much more costs effective for our European neighbours. Changed days as it used to be the other way around with UK buyers saving massive amounts by buying cars in Belgium, Holland or Germany.
