It is hard to believe that the Porsche Cayenne is celebrating 20 years of production. 20 years! Shortly after its world premiere at the Paris Motor Show in September 2002, the Cayenne took off and never looked backed. In the eight model years of the first generation, just under 35,000 vehicles per year were sold. The millionth Cayenne rolled off the production line in the summer of 2020, and last year well over 80,000 examples were sold. People love Cayennes.
Porsche started to realize that people love Cayennes, so naturally the next step was special editions. Way back in 2006, the Titanium Edition was rolled out exclusive to the United State and Canada. What was it? Just some colored accents and a two-tone interior. That’s it. No real changes otherwise, so they can be had for not too much money:

This is a nice one – don’t let it pass you by…
Marine Blue Metallic was one of four colors offered by Porsche on the Titanium Edition, and this one has the black and Sand Beige two-tone leather that was also just for the Titanium. Now over 15 years later, are these worth anything? Not really. This one has a pile of miles at nearly 136,000, so it is very much in that “just a used SUV” category.
This one is offered at $14,000, which is pretty much on par right now for the used car market. These things are still pretty maintenance heavy and have a few giant flaws that can be a pain to deal with, so I don’t know if the juice is worth the squeeze on these early Cayennes. It’s GTS or bust for me.
