Say what you want about the Porsche Cayenne, but without its emergence in the early-2000s, there would be no special Porsche cars that we all enjoy. The easy-to-produce SUVs that platform share with the other VWAG SUVs was not only easy to scale, but saved a ton of labor costs as the majority of it was built at the Volkswagen Bratislava Plant in the Slovak Republic, rather than in Germany that is just used for final assembly. Because of this, Porsche now had the cash to dump into RS cars, Speedsters, and other fun things that Porsche really weren’t forced to build. Just to put it into perspective, Porsche sells as many Cayennes as they do 911s, 718s, Taycans, and Panameras combined. The Macan? Same numbers. So the next time you see a 2006 Cayenne Turbo chugging around with a blown out suspension and blue smoke pouring our the tailpipes, give it a little thanks for funding the 997 GT3 RS 4.0s that exist because of it.

This 2016 Cayenne Turbo S is the king of hill for the Cayenne range. Base price was $158,295 (!) and somehow Porsche found a way to sell these, despite being more expensive a moderately optioned 2016 GT3. I know you can’t haul two kids to soccer and the mall in the GT3, but still. $158,000 for a Cayenne? This example is even crazier given it was optioned out to $184,720. The party the sales staff must of thrown the day this one rolled off the lot was probably one for the ages. Now, five years later?
Today it’s $73,000. This one was first sold outside of Chicago, which meant 8.75% in sales tax. Doing the quick math, the out the door price was a little over $201,000. Now subtract the current asking price, then divide that by 60 months. Your answer to how much money this vehicle lost on average in value every month, for 60 straight months, is $2,100. Not quite Maybach territory, but impressive. I guess the question is will it keep falling in value at this rate. If it does, anyone who finances this car for longer than a few years without a hefty down payment is in trouble. However, I do think it will slow a little. It for sure has more room to run, but I don’t think it can keep falling into the category of the first generation Cayenne Turbos.
