Tips for buying an old Cayenne hybrid?


Recommended Posts

Car crazy friend of mine (effectively my indie) is looking at a 10 year old Cayenne, very probably a hybrid. He’s doing his own research but there aren’t many in Portugal. Any things to look out for, options to insist on or avoid, ownership tips like our 986 drain holes etc? He does all his own maintenance usually, not scared of spanners or diagnostics. 

Thanks in advance :)

yes I did !

it was definitely a 1.0 hybrid!

Supercharged 6 cylinder with light hybrid.

As hybrids go, it was pretty limp; the battery did give a nice punch, but not like later models.

Saying that, I did tow a Brian James trailer with a 997 Cup car on the back, 8 spare wheels, lots of kit, and 4 up inside, all the way to Spa!

Very well appointed too.

It also did handle well on track - surprised a fair few cars at Donny & Spa
