2008 Porsche Cayenne Turbo


  • Outstanding 4.8 litre V8 turbo model
  • Rare and desirable colour scheme
  • Incredibly high factory specification

The Appeal

A car that changed the face of Porsche, on paper, the brand responsible for the 911, Boxster, 928 and a horde of other excellent sports cars decision to start producing a luxury sports SUV was bold and in the eyes of some a little bit reckless. However what spawned as a result was far from it and remains to this day one of the all time best selling Porsches. The Cayenne showed that SUV practicality needn't come at the sacrifice of sporting capability and dynamic feel and could in fact all be wrapped in one excellent package.

An incredibly high specification turbo model, this 2008 Cayenne is one of the first to be fitted with the legendary and extensively improved 4.8 litre V8 engine and comes with a reported 20 thousand pounds worth of optional extras, making it quite possibly one of the best, and most interesting Cayennes on the market today.

If you’re in the market for a well performing sports SUV, it’s hard to ignore a Cayenne like this

In a world of bland SUVs, rife with plastic trim and the dynamic capability of a bank vault, the Porsche Cayenne shows that sometimes, the veterans do it best. Lavishly appointed, effortlessly quick and surprisingly fun when the roads get twisty, the Cayenne, especially in its turbo guise is a truly excellent performance piece.

With the later 4.8 V8 and just about every optional extra box ticked this 2008 Cayenne may well be the best of the bunch and lends itself perfectly to use as an exotic, quick but entirely usable daily driver or long distance mile muncher.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
