If you're a fan of Overlanding, but you've always wanted to own a Porsche, this might be the opportunity staring you in the face. This Cayenne has been built up with some aftermarket modifications to be an even better off-road comfort cruiser than it was from the factory. The first generation Cayenne is possibly the best off roader of the three generations, especially when they're the more powerful V8 Turbo model like this one, which came standard with height adjustable air ride suspension. The seller notes "This was a fun project and I was shocked at how capable these vehicles really are off road. It is capable of similar terrain to a mild lifted Toyota 4 Runner or Tacoma. It's also a fantastic tow vehicle, though I only towed my boat with it a couple times." They even go so far as to mention that the truck doesn't leak any fluids and that it's in surprisingly good condition, considering it's 170,000 mile life. The listing only mentions a bit of clear coat peeling on the front bumper, a split in the passenger seat leather, and a chip of paint hidden underneath the license plate as the car's minimal faults.

The rear spare tire carrier was custom made, and the rear bumper was cut to accommodate it. This carrier could be removed if desired, and the bumper replaced and no one would ever know. As you will notice the swing out/carrier also has a receiver on it. This is not for towing, but is for having a hitch style bike rack higher off the ground for better ground clearance in the rear, and also allows you to tow at the same time with the regular hitch if desired.
