5 reasons to buy the 2023 Porsche Cayenne

1. Practical sports car

If you think a sports car is out of reach when you have friends, family, and colleagues to ferry around, think again! The Porsche Cayenne is a performance car through and through. With seating for five and a standard 3.0L V6 engine with 335 hp, this is an SUV you'll love to drive. If you want more power, the 2023 Porsche Cayenne Turbo has a 551-hp 4.0L V8 engine with an impressive zero-to-60 mph time of just 3.7 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package or 3.9 seconds without—not bad for a sports car with the practicality of a family car (according to the manufacturer, when new).

2. Great engine options

The 2023 Porsche Cayenne has four powertrain options to choose from. In addition to the base V6 and the V8 found on the Cayenne Turbo, there's another V6 available on the Cayenne S, which pumps out 434 hp. If you want to take a step into the world of electric power, the Cayenne E-Hybrid is also impressive with its 335-hp 3.0L V6 hybrid powertrain. When combined with the electric motor, this engine will do an EPA-estimated 42 MPGe combined (with a fully charged battery and a full tank of gas).

3. High-end finish

You'll love the look and feel of the 2023 Porsche Cayenne. It's well designed, with modern styling and high-end materials throughout. The base model features partial leather upholstery, ambient lighting, and power-adjustable front seats. The Platinum Edition adds a panoramic glass roof, heated front sport seats, and a Bose® sound system. Full leather seats, colored seat belts, and an Alcantra® roof lining can all be found as options or part of available packages.

4. Tow your toys, carry your crew

This is a sports car, but it's also as utilitarian as any other SUV. When properly equipped, all models of the 2023 Porsche Cayenne can tow up to an estimated 7,700 lbs.

That means you can haul your camper, boat, or other toys on your next getaway. Inside, the standard Cayenne is just as practical, with 27.2 cu-ft of space behind the rear seats or 60.3 cu-ft with the rear seats folded.

5. Tailored to your lifestyle

With a wide mix of engine options, trims, and available packages, you can find the Porsche Cayenne that suits your needs. Your first choice will be the body style—the Cayenne is available as an SUV or a coupe. The coupe looks sleek but reduces seating to four (unless you choose a model with the available fifth seat) and maximum cargo capacity to 54.3 cu-ft. Next, take a look at the nine well-equipped trims, including the Platinum Edition, which includes nice extras like a power liftgate and adaptive headlights. At the top of the lineup is the 2023 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, which features high-performance brakes, anti-roll bars, four-wheel steering, a carbon fiber roof, and more.
