You might be swayed by the fact the entry-level version of the Porsche Cayenne Coupé has a lower list price than the cheapest Audi Q8 or Range Rover Sport, but, over three years, the Q8 is predicted to hold on to more of its value. That means the Cayenne Coupé's PCP finance rates aren't usually any more impressive than its rivals, especially when you consider that Porsche, unlike Range Rover and Audi, doesn't do discounts.
All the regular petrol models occupy the top 37% bracket for benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax, making them very expensive to run as company cars. The low CO2 emissions of the E-Hybrid variants could slash your company car tax bills. Always remember to check out the free What Car?

Equipment, options and extras
Beyond the infotainment system and visibility aids (parking sensors, LED headlights lights, etc), you don’t get a huge amount of standard equipment in the Cayenne, Cayenne S or E-Hybrid.
For example, while you get some luxuries, including cruise control, heated front seats, two-zone climate control, keyless start, power-folding door mirrors, 19in or 20in alloy wheels and a powered tailgate, that's not an overwhelming tally relative to the competition. In fact, it leaves you paying extra for many niceties, such as adaptive cruise control and keyless entry.
