Cars & Bids Bargain of the Week: Manual 2012 Porsche Cayenne

Until a hypothetical three-row SUV arrives, the Cayenne is Porsche’s biggest vehicle. But while it’s a sporty luxury SUV, the Cayenne is more capable off-road than many realize or give it credit for. And because secondhand examples are often surprisingly affordable, a used Cayenne can kick butt on dust or pavement on a somewhat reasonable budget. However, the 2012 Porsche Cayenne currently listed on Cars & Bids has another special feature: a manual transmission.

The second-gen ‘958’ Porsche Cayenne was the last to rock the manual and a VR6

Yes, it’s true, the Porsche Cayenne was one of the few SUVs with a manual transmission. A standard manual to boot, at least with the base V6. Or rather, VR6.
