Cheapest Cayenne Turbo In The U.S. Costs Just $6,100 And Is Still Going Strong

Even though YouTuber Tyler Hoover usually jokes about his compulsion to purchase old premium cars, it seems that there really are some good investments out there.

This 2004 Porsche Cayenne Turbo joined his fleet about six months ago and has been driven for 6,000 miles (9,656 km) across five states. To everyone’s surprise, not a single thing has gone wrong as the car has proven to be remarkably reliable.

Hoover thinks that the first-generation Cayenne Turbo is an inherently reliable car because Porsche actually “overbuilt” it, making sure the powertrain was very solid all round.

In a way, it makes sense, seen as how this car needs to be able to handle the 450 horses it puts down via its turbocharged V8 engine, while also staying ready for any off-road excursion. Besides, Porsche really are known for engineering their cars properly.

This Cayenne has also received some mods along the way, such as the upgraded air suspension, which helps it have a more slammed look thanks to the longer rods that connect the height sensors to the axles.

    I don’t really follow this guy but is he trying to buy every cheapest old luxury cars in U.S? If so, why?

    • dufonrafal .

      He use to be a used car dealer. Now he’s just having fun. He actually work for Doug Demuro.

      • SmartAss??‍♂️

        He’s just annoying af.

        • SteersUright

          He’s just so over the top fake and seems to think its cool, charming or entertaining when it in fact comes across as trying too hard, immature as hell, and irritating. At least Doug Demuro is simply the goofy person he is and doesn’t try to be anything else. There’s something endearing about honesty from auto journalist types. Hoovie’s show could actually be more entertaining if he was more genuine, he does have some interesting cars rotating through his fleet. However, he needs to stop drinking before every video, it sounds like he’s constantly struggling to articulate and slurring his speech.

            LOL…. I love watching youtube auto channels but I had to get rid of a bunch because they are annoying AutoVlog(abandoned reviewing cars now only makes videos about his 2018 MB C63 S AMG) Redline Reviews (sucks his teeth wayyy to much and is extremely biased in favor of Asian brands) SaabKyle is probably my favorite, that douche SubaruWRXfan if I ever see him I’m going to give him a few downers, no one is that excited.

            Interesting. I think Doug Demuro is unwatchable. He makes constant jokes every second of his videos. I couldn’t really watch any more of him after maybe the fifth video.

  • BlackPegasus

    He didn’t say how much was spent on the upgrades. Anyhoo, the new LED light cluster and new wheels and tires is a good way to spent the cash you otherwise would’ve spent on maintenance and repair costs.

    He was ‘lucky’ indeed.
