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.
