Porsche is the only way for injured petrolheads to get to hospital
10 May 2007

Ah to be a Porsche employee. Ferrari might have been voted the best place to work in Europe, but those at Zuffenhausen are every bit as spoiled.Not only do they get to play with Porsches all day, but if they have an accident, they will now be whisked to hospital in one of these new Cayenne ambulances.Just four of Cayenne emergency cars were created, by 15 Porsche apprentices. The cars are destined for Porsche’s plants in Zuffenhausen, Weissach and Leipzig, as well as the Porsche test track in Weissach.The inside of the cars has been totally altered, with one seat front and rear, and a stretcher alongside. On board there is a host of medical kit including a defibrilator.These aren’t the first modified Cayennes in use at Porsche’s factories – it also has Cayenne-based fire trucks, among others.Presumably in the unlikely event that a Cayenne ambulance doesn’t get you to the hospital in time, there’s a Cayenne hearse somewhere out there. We hope never to find out.

Our Verdict

Porsche Cayenne

Even those who don't love the Porsche Cayenne should be impressed by its dynamic ability

    Jaguar’s second SUV faces up to the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA. Tough task, so is the E-Pace up to it?
  • Jaguar E-Pace D180
    First Drive
    19 November 2017
    Not the driver’s car many would hope from any car wearing the Jaguar badge, but the E-Pace is an attractive and interesting addition to the compact premium SUV ranks
  • Subaru Impreza
    First Drive
    17 November 2017
    The fifth-generation Subaru Impreza is much improved from top to bottom, but a poor engine and gearbox keep it trailing in this competitive class

    First Drive
    17 November 2017
    We get a first taste of Ford’s poshest Fiesta in turbocharged diesel form

    Car review

    Seat is on a roll but can the Arona, its new junior SUV, cut it in such an ultra-competitive class?
