Which used Porsche Cayenne 4x4 should I buy?

Choosing between the various Cayennes is basically a case of picking fast, very fast or seriously fast. All are very well equipped, and even the, err, 'basic' 250bhp V6 version hits 60mph in just over nine seconds, which is mighty impressive for a car weighing over two tonnes.

However, this version arrived only in early 2004, almost a year after the S and Turbo versions, and is still comparatively rare as a used car. The easiest model to find - and the best, in our opinion - is the S. This has a 340bhp V8 petrol engine that makes the best of what the car has to offer, but without costing the earth.

The 450bhp Turbo at the top of the range has quite phenomenal performance and air suspension. However, it costs more than the others to run and the difference in price between it and even the S runs into the tens of thousands.
