    A suv would be the last thing i'd wanna be doing 125 + in. A few people I know that have them say they are unsteady after 100.

    Dude, a Porsche Cayenne Turbo is going to be rock solid at 125mph - maybe even more so than a stock WRX. They are SUVs, but they're dead serious machines.

    Suspension wise, that's not what he noted. I haven't experienced it 1st hand and hopefully never will , so there isn't much I can say...

    I'd bet it would be fine.. Everything I've read about the cayenne basically comes down to this: a jacked up 911... handles like a porsche, goes like a porsche, smells like a porsche.. yep its a porsche.. dont feel bad

    That doesn't sound right at all, about the Cayenne being unstable at speed, especially the Turbo, which is more stiffly sprung than the S. As has been said, that vehicle should be FAR more stable at 125 than a WRX could hope to be. The road tests basically comment that it drives, handles, and accelerates like a jacked up 911.

    That is one SUV that I would proud to own.

    Germany has the Autobahn. The Cayenne has to have been run at least a few times there and no doubt does really well.
