The 2004 Porsche Cayenne has the room and the luxury that a family demands for its four-wheel-drive adventures – whether they involve wilderness trails, inclement weather conditions or a quick run to the drive-thru lane. It also provides the dynamic driving experience that Porsche’s enthusiast customers expect from each of their vehicles.
Except for its engine and a few other components, the 2004 Porsche Cayenne is identical in design and construction to the Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo. The only visual clues to differentiate the new model from its siblings are its black-colored brake calipers, its standard, 10-spoke, light-alloy, 17-inch wheels, and a “Cayenne” script on its rear hatch without an “S” or “Turbo” suffix.
The 2004 Porsche Cayenne features a 3.2-liter V6 engine tuned by Porsche engineers to produce 247 horsepower (SAE) at 6,000 rpm and 228 pound-feet of torque, with that peak torque figure achieved all the way from 2,500 rpm to 5,500 rpm.
Working though the Tiptronic S transmission and Porsche’s four-wheel-drive systems, the V6 propels the 2004 Porsche Cayenne from a standing start to 62 miles per hour (100 km/h) in 9.7 seconds. The 2004 Porsche Cayenne’s top speed in track testing is 133 mph (214 km/h).
