In 2002, it had been over seven years since a vehicle in the Porsche line up had featured a V-8 as the power plant. The last of which was the 1995 Porsche 928 that left the factory with a 5.4L V8. Porsche made the decision that with the creation of their new SUV platform they would reintroduce the V8 in their lineup. Porsche is a brand name that is synonymous with luxury and performance, so the new SUV platform would have to be capable, powerful, and luxurious to compete with the already crowded SUV market.
Porsche's venture into the SUV market wasn't for naught, as the Cayenne quickly received great reviews and established a following of people who swore by the Cayenne platform. This 2008 Cayenne is a supreme example as to why so many choose the Cayenne over Porsche's competitors. At only 5 years old and a recent service from Hendrick Porsche in Charlotte, NC, this Cayenne GTS shows like it is brand new, features over 400 horsepower, and displays a stunning luxurious interior.
It starts with the body that is covered in an aggressive coat of Carmon Red Metallic and features a head-turning look that is lost on most SUV's of today. At the front of the body you have a massive grille located just below the famous Porsche emblem on the center of the nose. The emblem is flanked on both sides by large headlights that seamlessly blend into the front fenders. As you make your way down the body you'll notice a large luggage rack on the roof, and black trim that accents the dark red paint. At the back of the SUV you'll notice a modest rear spoiler above the back door that opens automatically with a touch of the handle. Below the rear glass is the Cayenne GTS badging, and the quad chrome exhaust tips that finish off the look.
Lift the hood on this Porsche SUV and you'll reveal the 4.8L direct injected V8 that pumps out a potent 405 horsepower. The engine bay, like the rest of the car, is extremely clean and makes use of all the available space. The 4.8L V8 features an aluminum block, aluminum heads, and is combined with a 6-speed Porsche 'Tiptronic' automatic transmission. The combination is good for a 0-60 time in 6 seconds flat, and if you could control yourself behind the wheel the GTS you can achieve nearly 20mpg. 400 horsepower and 20mpg, it doesn't get much better than that!
Underneath the GTS is just as impressive as the rest of the vehicle. For the suspension you'll find an adjustable air ride independent front and rear suspension that offers three different suspension modes – comfort, normal, and sport. If those three aren't enough the driver can also adjust the air suspension manually from the cockpit. The all-wheel drive vehicle is slowed by 4-wheel power disc brakes with 4-wheel ABS. The entire vehicle rides on 5-spoke Cayenne Sport Alloy rims that have been wrapped in Continental CrossContact tires.
The Cayenne GTS was advertised as being a luxury SUV and when you take a seat in the driver's seat you really get a first-hand view of all the luxuries available to you. The Sand Beige leather interior is stunning and one of the most comfortable manufacturer stock seats we have ever sat in. Both of the front seats are 8-way power adjustable that includes a memory function to remember the ideal settings. In front of the driver is a leather steering wheel that has cruise and radio controls on the wheel. Beyond the wheel is a standard instrument cluster with a digital readout in the center. Between the two drivers is an upgraded and brand new Kenwood touchscreen digital interface that features a 6.95 inch monitor with navigation, bluetooth connectivity, and built-in AM/FM/SiriusXM/HD radio. Just below that is the shifter for the six-speed automatic and the controls for the air-ride independent suspension. Above the driver is a nice sun roof, while behind the two front seats is the rear bench seat capable of housing 3 more passengers. Beyond the two rear seats is a spacious cargo area that features 19 square feet of space.

If you are looking for a comfortable and luxurious way to haul the significant other, kids, and family pet, but still want plenty of power waiting under your right foot, then this is the SUV for you. Don't miss your chance to take home this 2008 Porsche Cayenne GTS.

What Customers Are Saying
I have the unique experience of buying and also selling a car from RK Motors.
It is very difficult and risky to evaluate a car on-line. I have heard many stories about people buying on-line and the cars did not turn out as advertised. This is where RK Motors works very hard to represent their cars as accurately as possible. They also do a great job of marketing their cars.
Their pictures give you the ability to look at details on any part of the cars you feel necessary. They are also willing to answer any questions you have as accurately as possible. They removed the all the doubt for me to purchase one of their cars.
I visited their showroom which is filled with high-level cars. Their sales staff were very professional and answered as many questions as they could for me.
When I decided to sell my car, I called RK and ask them how we could do this. They were very helpful and lead me step by step through this process. The thing that impressed me most was even though I purchased the car from them, they would not take my word on the quality of the car. Only after they did their evaluation were we able to finalize our deal. They took all new pictures and did a great job of marketing my car. They were able to sell my car quickly and kept me well informed through the entire process. We answered any questions the new owner had hopefully he will enjoy his car as much as I did.
I would highly recommend RK Motors to anyone buying or selling their cars.
