The Porsche Cayenne is a mid-size luxury crossover sports utility vehicle produced by Porsche since 2002, with North American sales beginning in 2003. It was the first V8-engined vehicle built by Porsche since 1995 when the Porsche 928 was discontinued. It is also Porsche's first non-sports car since the Super and Junior tractors of the 1950s, and their first vehicle with four doors. 

This 2005 Cayenne is a 'Turbo S' and was considered perhaps the ultimate version of the Cayenne range at the time. As this is a very early Turbo ‘S’, the letter ‘S’ on the rear boot lid is not displayed on this car as our vendor informs us that the ‘S’ tag was added later in the production run. He has owned this car since new and has covered just over 32,000 miles since taking delivery in 2005 to join his, by all accounts, eclectic classic car collection. This car has mainly resided in the south of France, enjoying the warmer climate, and has been a faithful servant to him while spending long periods out there. The time has now come to find it a new home, so our vendor drove this car all the way back to the UK recently, to bring onto the open market for the first time, and the car ran smoothly and faultlessly during the two day trip. 

There are a few scratches and blemishes on the bodywork that could do with a bit of attention, as you might expect with a car that has spent 10 years on French roads and it's worth noting that the dashboard on the driver’s side has succumbed to the unforgiving, Cote d'Azure sun. This is a great opportunity to acquire a genuine one owner Porsche Cayenne Turbo suggested at a very competitive guide price considering the style, performance and luxury on offer in return.
