    2006 Cayenne Turbo - Immaculate Condition, Unique Color, Tasteful Mods, Quickest 955

    I am listing my 2006 Cayenne Turbo which I just replaced with a 958 Cayenne Turbo. I am the second owner of the car and have logged about 30,000 trouble-free miles in a little over 2 years. The car now has just under 85,000 miles. I purchased it from a local Mercedes Benz dealer and was told it was a one owner car whose female owner traded it in on a GL-series SUV. Again, as far as I know, it has been a Florida car its whole life. I fell in love with the color from the first photo I saw, and it looks even better in person. I think I have seen this color on 2 other Cayennes ever as opposed to always seeing white, silver and black. It is my wife's daily driver, and we generally take the Cayenne if we are driving together (she has never been a big fan of my Z06, old M3 or GTR). We have no kids, and I can count maybe a dozen times in over 2 years owning the car that someone has even sat in the back seat. It does have an aftermarket rear seat DVD player installed though I have never once turned it on.


    Obviously, I am no professional photographer, but I did a quick detail of the car inside and out yesterday and took a bunch of photos with a point-and-shoot. I linked a few directly to this thread, but you can follow the link and view all in an album. As you can see, the car is in exceptional condition inside and out. The paint is very shiny with almost no swirls or imperfections. Billy from Presidential Detailing takes care of my cars once a year performing light paint correction as necessary, and I maintain the car otherwise with Griot's Garage and Zaino products.


    Not only is the car beautiful cosmetically, but it has been meticulously maintained mechanically. Please contact Andrew the owner of Lutz Performance in Tampa with any questions regarding the car.


    The car is also very quick and is the fastest 955 Cayenne on Dragtimes: http://www.dragtimes.com/Porsche-Cay...lip-22193.html This time was achieved before the methanol injection kit was installed and without the primary cats deleted. I believe that with favorable DA, the car will run a 12-second pass. The car really never stops pulling on the interstate. I typically will use the Tiptronic to click down to 5th (or perhaps 4th for even greater effect), lean into the throttle, and the car promptly builds boost and smoothly begins pulling until you tell it to stop.


    Despite the car being an absolute animal when called upon, it is very tame otherwise and very daily driver friendly. My wife is not a "car person" and would not tolerate any kind of excess noise from the exhaust or any driveability compromises. This car drives very nicely, and as the weather is finally cooling down here in Florida, the car has responded even more beautifully as forced induction vehicles simply love the cooler, drier air. I have linked 3 videos below. One is a clip of everyday driving coming back from the grocery store last night. There is a very slight "growl" from the exhaust audible from inside the car, but otherwise, one would be hard pressed to know the car is modded unless told. That is, until you give it some "gas" and car simply goes. I attached a video of the car with the windows down where I turned right from a stop, rolled into the throttle and let off at the top of second around 60 mph. The car really sounds great with a nice growl and absolutely no drone. Finally, there is also a drive-away video from behind the car to hear the aggressive but reasonable exhaust note that others hear.











    The car has a Champion Motorsports lowering module installed and setup where the current "low" setting is very close to the factory "loading" level. Even at "normal" level, the car looks aggressive and the wheel gap looks very balanced. All photos were taken at either the "low" setting or the "loading" level setting since it looks very aggressive at that height.


    As you may notice in the gauge cluster photograph, the car does have a CEL simply because it has no cats. This does not affect performance in any way. Obviously, if you live in a state with emissions regulations, you would need to source factory primary cats; however, since the primary cat delete is becoming increasingly common now and affordable (the Leistung was not available when I purchased from SuperSprint), it would be simple to find a set of factory primary cats.


    The methanol injection kit was installed by Julio Don the owner of AlkyControl who has sold thousands of methanol injection kits across the country. He is a personal friend and together we took great care with the installation. The kit can be run a 100% methanol if one chooses or at 50/50 mix. I have found it performs best with 100% for maximum cooling effect. It utilizes the factory windshield washer bottle for its reservoir and the factory low level sensor works to notify when it is low (both the bottle and sensor are new). The car has not been specifically tuned for the methanol and so no harm would be done if it were to run out. I have not had time to have a custom tune created just for the methanol, but I imagine significant power (at least 40 hp) would be added if the car were custom tuned to take advantage of the increased octane and cooler intake air temperatures. There is an LED that is visible from the drivers seat that illuminates when the meth begins spraying (red) and when it reaches full flow (green) as it has a progressive controller.


    The car has a couple of scratches and chips that I have photographed. The largest one is on the passenger side rear quarter panel. It was there when I purchased the car. At first glance, it looks significant, but it is honestly hardly noticeable due to its location on the bend of the body. I work closely with body shops in my profession and never found it bothersome enough to repair. There are a few other minor scratches and chips which I photographed. There is a trim piece missing from the base of the center console in the back seat as well as the passenger side rear temperature adjustment (which is frankly unnecessary, IMO). Rear windows have factory tinting that is basically limo. Front windows have 15% tint.


    I purchased beautiful Lloyd's Mats with Red "Turbo" embroidering. I also added a cargo bin that is useful for groceries and also folds out of the way for transporting larger items.


    The car is equipped with Sport Techno 20" wheels in staggered 9"/10" widths. Each wheel was professional refinished by the best company in Tampa to repair very light curb rash, and as you can see from the photographs, they are all flawless. New center caps and valve stem covers were purchased as well. The car has newer (6 months old) Yokohama Parada Spec-X SUV tires in 265/50-20-XL and 295/45-20-XL fitment. These are taller than stock resulting in a superb ride, the best achieved from the 3 different sets of tires I have tried on the car to include Bridgestones and Nitto Invos. The speedometer now reads slightly slower than actual, but it only equates to a few mph at interstate speeds. There are absolutely no stability problems from the taller sidewalls. All positives, no negatives.


    I recently added the Vertex Auto driveshaft brace for "insurance" though I have had no problems with the drivetrain.


    Performance Modifications are as follows:
    EVOMS ECT600 tune
    EVOMS V-Flow intakes
    IPD Plenum
    APR R1 DVs referenced to manifold pressure with stiffest spring
    SuperSprint primary cat delete pipes
    Sharkwerks secondary cat delete pipes
    AlkyControl methanol injection kit
    Champion Motorsports lowering module


    I would be happy to answer any further questions or provide additional photographs if needed. Given the excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition of the vehicle inside and out coupled with the tasteful, proven modifications to further enhance performance, I have priced the car accordingly at $34,500. Of course, I am willing to entertain any and all offers. Title is in hand for a smooth sale. VIN is WP1AC29P66LA91319

    Nice looking car, GLWS!

    Those front windows don't really look like 15% though, pretty light compared to 15%. Or maybe the photos are playing with my eyes.

    I think it is just comparing them to the rears which are factory tinted to probably 5%
