To anyone doubting the Cayenne S, my experience has been that it is an amazing tow rig. With a curb weight of 4914lbs (more than many F150s), 14” front and 13” rear discs grabbed by Brembo 6 piston...

That is one funky trailer. Love the colors. No idea what it is worth, but seems high to me. But then maybe this is the market in Germany.

MSRP on these was like $62k new in the US.

My boot fits over the Bimini with the surf sleeve on. One of the easiest/best upgrades to the boat for sure. If I didn’t have one, I’d be getting this one.
