That certainly is lower than the expected price range on kbb.com for a turbo version of a 09 Cayenne. I think that the price range that you indicated above is in the range indicated on kbb.com for the non-turbo version of the Cayenne with roughly 50,000 miles (so maybe the one that you saw advertised is a relative bargain). For reference, the link below should take you to the kbb.com page where you are able to select between the different Cayenne models, and specify the number of miles on the car:

I agree with scott9050, slorydn1, and Apollo1 that if you can afford a GT (or better yet a GT premium) while keeping the truck, that is probably the best course of action than the V6 that I suggested.

I'm in Dominican Republic, kbb price have little to nothing to with a lot of vehicles here, you can find base, S and turbo for about the same price here.

A gt premium will cost me about $40k, and it's more that I want to pay for a vehicle right now.

For the Mustang I can spend around $23k in usa cause importing it will cost me about 10k more, that's way I can only get a v6 premium or a really good deal on base gt.

Bang for the bucks...

I personally like the looks of a Mustang. Sure other expensive sports cars may offer added benefits, for a cost. Mustangs are on par with other production vehicles, as far as maintenance and repairs go.

But I'll tell you what. I was at a light the other night and a high dollar BMW pulled along side. He looked at me, and I looked at him. And the look on his condescending face said "my car, looked better than his."
A lot of car ownership, for enthusiasts, has to do with appearance.

And ever since the Mustang was introduced, it has always turned heads, and always will.

After all, its a Mustang. The one , and only.

I like having a car and a truck (Taco) and for me one of each is great.

Also my .02 is to get a base V8 before a fancy V6

2012 V6 traded in for a 2017 VW GTI.

Gee, I wonder if the poll would have the same results on allporsche.com?

I can appreciate the situation you are in. I think Porsche makes wonderful cars, except of course, for the price of entry. Please keep in mind that the Cayenne was co-developed with the VW Touareg, which itself is associated with reliability glitches, at least early on. So I would probably avoid any early Cayenne vehicle. Assuming that the Cayenne you're looking at is several years old, definitely get a pre-purchase inspection and make sure you investigate the weak spots of this vehicle if you do decide to go through with it. These vehicles have A LOT of sensors and electronic complexity.

Personally, if I was to get a Porsche, it would be one of their sports cars. The price of early 997 carreras is starting to come down to reasonable levels. I saw a 2005 (first model year) non-S carrera with like 30k miles for just under $40k. And of course, a mid-engined Cayman S is also a legit sports car (maybe more so than a 911!) and something else to consider.

In the end, I suppose it depends on how you are using the vehicles. If you need something dependable for daily driving duties, I would be hesitant to rely on a Cayenne, unless you have reason to believe that the example you are looking at shouldn't give you much trouble. If you can keep your f150 and get something fun, personally, I'd rather have a used cayman S/997 versus a mustang, but again, that's just personal preference. If the mustang is going to be a DD, I would be hesitant to get a 997/cayman S instead, however. Though I have heard good things about the reliability of modern porsche sports cars.

is everyone forgetting the main thing here? Those 2 cars serve a completely different crowd. is space, passenger capability a big deal? do you wanna sit high off the ground, or be very connected to the road? IMO, they're both great cars, but they are VERY different vehicles. Going from a truck, do yo uthink you can handle the lack of space and practicality of driving? it all depends on what you need. Think about your needs, I would have a hard time deciding just because i have a kid coming, and the cayenne would be a smarter choice, but giving up my 5.0 would be VERY VERY hard, but i already have it.

also, measure out your enthusiast level. do you, or are you, interested in any sort of motor sports? The mustang is going to be a better choice in that segment. if you're doing mostly commuter driving, possibly the Cayenne.

I would go for a GT instead of the V6.

The Cayenne doesnŽt do it for me. If you said boxster, cayman or an older 911 instead of the Mustang IŽd say Porsche. But its your choice.
