What used Porsche Cayenne 4x4 will I get for my budget?
You can pick a Cayenne of this generation, say from 2010 or 2011, for around £13,000, but it may well have a huge mileage on it or some slightly dodgy past, in which case we'd recommend you give it a wide berth. Around £17,000 is probably a better starting point for entry into the Cayenne club proper. This will buy you a good condition 2011 or 2012 car with an average mileage for the year and a full service history, bought from an independent dealer. Up the dosh to around £20,000 if you require one of the faster models, or a 2013 or 2014 car, while spending circa £25,000 will net you a 2015 model, and can also put one of the desirable and quick turbo models on your drive. Look to spend between £28,000 and £34,000 on a 2016 car, and upwards of £35,000 on a good 2017 or 2018 one.
How much does it cost to run a Porsche Cayenne 4x4?
Expect large annual VED road tax bills, too, from all models. Costs for cars registered before April 2017 will depend on CO2 emissions, while models registered after that date will be subjected to the current £155 per year for petrol and diesel cars, or £145 per year for hybrids.

Insurance and servicing
On top of that, insurance groups are high, and servicing costs and parts are hugely expensive, whether you take it to a Porsche dealer or an independent specialist. It is vital to the long-term health of the car that it has been regularly serviced. Regular oil changes are a must, every year or at least every 10,000 miles.
