Porsche Cayenne: Driving report

Porsche Cayenne

Nice driving report here with the new Porsche Cayenne.

As we piloted the new 2011 Porsche Cayenne S back to back with the 2010 Cayenne S, at Barber Motorsports Park near Birmingham, Alabama—a course that includes a good mix of tight hairpins, flowing sweepers, and terrain changes—it was almost instantly apparent that Porsche has done a lot more than a nip and a tuck. The new version of this utility vehicle is more nimble and sporty-feeling than before and minds its weight in a more confidence-inspiring way.

Part of the reason behind this surefootedness and poise is that there’s significantly less weight to be shifted around, and a number of performance improvements make the Cayenne more focused toward on-road dynamics without sacrificing its off-road capability.
