We have driven both. The Porsche is definitely much more "fun" to drive. Leaning towards it. Just curious as to some others opinions.

Not even remotely close - P-car

Both are total "shop" queens after 20K miles though. Get to know the service guy at the porsche dealership and liquor him up good.

Porsche Cayenne Turbo is my vote but you will get to know the service department well

Or just save a bunch of headaches and grab an SRT-8, let me tell you, it is raw and fun. I love my friends especially with his mods and would buy it instead of the Cayenne or Range anyday, may not be as refined, but its balls out fun for truck. He had a few Cayennes and a turbo was the last one he sold, well modded I might at, and loves the SRT-8 Jeep instead.

Have you looked at what Mercedes has to offer ? The AMG s are pretty nice without the service issues .

I work at a Porsche dealer. Plan on a set of tires and brakes at 15K or less. Great vehicle but expensive to maintain. How about a BMW X-5 ?? I think they make a sport 4.8 engine or something like that. Anyways they all come with FREE maintenance for 4 yrs/50K. It even includes brake pads. All you would pay for is gas and tires. It is a hell of a deal. Do the math. And by the way did I mention I also work for a BMW dlr. I don't sell cars but if you need help, drop me a line. Good deals to be had in this market and we are one of the largest dlrs in the Midwest. We also have Mercedes Benz if that interests you. Check out our website. www.motorwerks.com
