The Porsche Cayenne is a mid-size luxury Sport Utility Vehicle manufactured by the German automaker Porsche since 2002. This is about as sharp as an SUV could ever look. Leave it to Porsche to add grace and style to a segment that normally lacks such a thing. It is the first V8 engined vehicle built by Porsche since 1995, which marks when the Porsche 928 was discontinued. Obviously, sales of the Cayenne have been very strong, with 100,000 sold as of June 2005. This makes it Porsche’s best-selling vehicle in North America. In fact, 40% of Cayenne sales are in North America, but for reasons unknown, sales have slowed. As a result, the Cayenne was skipped for the 2007 model year, but has been recreated for 2008, and will hopefully be a huge hit.
