Back in 2004 the suburban warriors and middle aged house wives (and house husbands) who jumped on the opportunity to buy the base model of Porsche’s first SUV were probably not familiar with the term VR6. But if you tell a proper car guy, he’s gonna say, Jetta or Golf? Because the VR6 is synonymous with Volkswagen and those Porsche jacket wearing folks didn’t know they’d just purchased something that shared an engine with a Golf. But the jokes on Porsche because the little VR6 is cheaper and easier to maintain over some complicated twin-turbo Porsche and I’d rather fix this thing on the side of the trail than something with a boosted V8. Find this 2004 Porsche Cayenne offered for $18000 in Colorado Springs, CO via eBay.
THIS… is a 2005 Porsche Cayenne, finished in Crystal Silver Metallic with a black leather interior.
Factory equipment includes 17-inch wheels, a sunroof, leather upholstery, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, Porsche Traction Management (PTM), and more as detailed below.
A partial list of modifications reported by the seller include powder-coated wheels, 255/70 Kenda Klever E-rated tires, a 2.5-inch suspension lift, a roof cross bar with 5 LED off-road lights, a custom external spare tire carrier, “Transsyberia” decals, with matching orange wrap on mirror caps, grille inserts, and rear spoiler, and Eurowise skid plates.
Porsche introduced the first-generation Cayenne (called “955” internally) for the 2003 model year, and though it was initially controversial, the model quickly became the firm’s best seller. This Cayenne is a tribute build to the models that competed in the Transsyberia Rally — a challenging off-road event that ran over 4,500 miles from Moscow to Ulaanbaatar.
Power comes from a 3.2-liter DOHC V6, rated at 247 horsepower and 229 lb-ft of torque. Output is sent to all four wheels through a 6-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission.
