Editor's Overview

The 2016 Porsche Cayenne SUV continues its genre-defying ways this year, with two new models to further make drivers believe they bought a sports car, and not a practically designed family hauler. The new Porsche Cayenne Turbo S packs even more horsepower than before, and the Porsche Cayenne GTS returns to the lineup, now with a turbocharged V6 engine.

Magnificent and beautiful. It is expensive, probably more than the value of its kinds, but it is also one of the most sturdy cars

Love the look, the drive and the features. Don't like the unpredictability of software issues
