But, I'm reading about real life reports of 9 miles per gallon. My Cayenne's averaging 14 to 16. It isn't about the fuel cost, just inconvenience and the principle. Is that really what you guys are getting?
Thanks for the info!

go for the M, you wont regret it..

I heard the Turbo S has a lot of problems. My co-worker with one said "if you look at it long enough, you'll see something break" Still a sweet car though

Can't say I agree with your coworker. I've put 32,000 miles in my '09 sice I got it new and had a small software problem with the entry and drive and a rattle in the panoramic sunroof and that's it. Just feeling it may be time for a change.

I had a 2008 Cayenne GTS, not for very long with no problems though and this past weekend I attended the Porsche drive event where we got to track various new Porsche models at Seatttle international raceway. One of the vehicles was a 2011 Cayanne Turbo. I can say that the new Cayenne Turbo has nothing on the M. I may be biased but the car just did not seem all theat great. Suspension is soft and off the line did not seem to pull all that well. Now the 911 carerra 4S and the Boxter Speedster was a different story all together. That Boxster Speedster is one fun car.

how many miles are you getting per tank? I drive about 250 miles per week, so am I going to have to fill it up more than once a week?

I get about 260 to 280 per tank but I fill up well before E around 1/4 tank on the guage.

at 250 miles per week dring you should be able to go about every 8 days.
