Editor's Overview

It may sound cliche to say Porsche’s 2015 Cayenne SUV puts the “sport” in sports-utility vehicle, but it’s an accurate statement. Powerful, capable and simply a blast to drive, the Cayenne is built for the enthusiast who needs to carry five passengers or a weekend’s worth of luggage. Think of it as a 911 station wagon.
