Moving on - Cayenne?

Post by stallturn » Fri Nov 08, 2019 8:14 am

After 4 enjoyable years with my Macan S, I am thinking on moving to something slightly bigger - a BMW X5 M40i or a Cayenne.
I read somewhere (on here?) that Porsche were finally prepared to offer discounts in today's marketplace.
Before I start contacting OPC's, does anyone have any knowledge on this - which OPC's might be doing it and what level of discount?

Thanks

I always liked the X5 but bigger than I require and obviously bigger to park.....

I bought a Cayenne in August. It was a dealer specified car, so I only had to wait a few weeks for delivery. The dealer gave me some discount purely on the basis that I registered it on a 19 plate rather than waiting two weeks for the 69 plate.
So when is this ‘old enough to know better’ supposed to kick in ?

Cayenne S - since Aug 2019
Macan Turbo - Feb 2018 to Aug 2019
Cayenne S - Apr 2015 to Feb 2018
Cayenne - Jul 2013 - Apr 2015
BMW R1200RT - since Dec 2016

If thinking of the e hybrid make sure you get an extended test drive. I got mine as a pre WTLP on 31/8 last year with no chance to test drive the hybrid as a cancelled order and needed be on road pre 1/9. Great car except for extra mass with the battery and awful regen brakes. My wife’s i3 has way better regen brakes. It really bugged me when on back roads in Sport +. Macan is awesome on same roads without need to seat 5 adults constantly now.

Having just had a Panamera E-Hybrid I concur that the brakes are crap. It was my single biggest issue with the car.

Currently own a Turbo S e-hybrid Panamera and I concur as well. I hate the brakes....
