Somewhat surprisingly the Cayenne S has 434 hp and 408 lb-ft torque with a towing capacity of 7700 lbs! To mix it up a bit, I also opted for a Blk/Red Bordeaux interior and 22" wheels. All this for $103k. So on the value front, I think quite reasonable with the savings going towards a new Speedster.
Have a Cayenne GTS . bought as a quick "inbetweener". Fell in love with it as a daily .. does everything right. Another 200 hp would be fun and a Lambo is a Lambo(drop mic). But you will love the car... an btw... I too said goodbye to all the AMG's.. The new turbo cayenne just hit showrooms...rarely do I buy the same care twice.... but its that good a car . good luck

Stay in it...

I hope you have a better experience. For what's its worth I did a 1 pay lease on mine which was a screaming deal. All principal no interest. In 3 years if the car is worth more than what you owe you can buy it, if not let it go. Perfect scenario for wifey.

Yeah I can't keep a car more than 6 months. I bought for $2K under invoice and will suck up the depreciation when done with her--no biggie (have had two other RR's). But yes, for long term lease is only way on RR if you plan to keep 3 years. I'll be lucky to make it to end of summer ...and no I don't like used cars.

Urus is amazing and if I didn't need to use to go to ranch with this SUV, I would have given more attention. The RR is great for off road stuff which I need while finishing my house in country (no paved road to house yet), Raptor is better for that but not great for going out with friends for dinner.

BTW, two neighbors have 18 and one 19 RRSC with no issues. One had airbag light come on and that was it. We'll see LOL--they are British cars.

Nothing special, but picked up stable mate for 720. 19 Supercharged. I love this damn thing and for $120 it's freaking steal IMHO. Fast (not Urus fast) and great cockpit and electronics.

Garage full of depreciation and I love them both.

Interesting. I'm always in search of sports SUV nirvana. Owned too many to list. Never the Urus though. I drove it, liked it, but serviceability was my hangup. I'm on my 6th Cayenne Turbo now, just ordered the 2020 coupe. There just isnt anything better for cost/handling/reliability and serviceability IMO. Its not exclusive like the Urus, but I kinda like that.
