Porsche Opinion?

The Right Car for Me | TrueDelta

Hi Guys, considering leasing or getting a 2015 -2017 Porsche Cayenn S E-Hybrid CPO. Would like to get opinions on it before I take the plunge. Been on the Porsche forums and it looks like the facelifted model is the preferred choice but also lot of people also prefer the older model 2011 -2014 because of the V8 availability for the S trim. I read all the information I can find for the 958.1 /958.2 and based on the most common issue is the TC (Transfer Case) issue which is more common on the Gas models. For the Cayenne Hybrid and Diesel, they use a different TC which is same in the T3 Toaureg. Best to get CPO as it's additional 2 years and unlimited Mileage plus the extended warranty if one chooses to get.

Pretty good with DIY (tools and scanner) and also have an Indi Mechanic who can work on German cars

Would appreciate any feedback.

Regards,
Ben

Benck55: It sounds like you have used all the appropriate research tools and have pretty good handle on what you want and how to go about getting a good one! You probably know more about the Cayenne than 97% of the rest of us. Perhaps some knowledgable individual will chime in here, but I don't really have anything to add other than happy shopping.

I drove my brother in law's 2014 Cayenne GTS and I really liked it. If you don't need the space the Cayenne offers, the base model Macan I drove was more nimble and would be the one I would prefer, but make it the Macan S. It handles more like a car and is cheaper, but still very nice. If I did go with the Cayenne, I would go with the regular S non-hybrid. The Hybrid just adds some unneeded complexity to the powertrain and I don't think the gas mileage would be much improved either. More people buy the non-hybrid versions so parts would be more available for the non-hybrid and have a larger community. I don't really have much to add either, but I would go to thePorsche Reddit page.They should be able to answer your questions better than we can. I do suggest going CPO with Porsche because the maintenance costs can become ridiculous.

Thanks Lectrofuel, I did look at a Macan but it doesn't have the room especially the backseat. Will keep in mind about the Non Hybrid model (S or GTS) against the E-Hybrid. Will probably wait for the 3rd Gen Cayenne around fall of this year and see what it has to offer. Thanks ...

The Cayenne is, most likely, going to be a safe bet, since Porsches usually tend to be much more reliable than other European luxury vehicles (save for Audi). Both this site and Consumer Reports show this. I would also agree with the others that have replied, be sure to look for a CPO vehicle since maintenance costs can be HORRENDOUS. Hope this helps!

Thank you GMC- will definitely get a CPO plus extended warranty. Planning to keep this for awhile once I get one. Waiting on the 3rd gen to come out, want to see the new one up close first. Then will decide.
