- Reese Witherspoon owned this Porsche Cayenne
- Witherspoon bought the hybrid SUV new
- She put just 7,000 miles on it
This Porsche Cayenne was previously owned by Hollywood star Reese Witherspoon, who bought the 2012 Cayenne S Hybrid new. She drove it just over 7,000 miles before switching to something else. Now, it's for sale in Tarzana, Calif.
According to Dave, who owns a service that helps clients find the right vehicle, Witherspoon bought the Cayenne in late 2011. Several press photos online show her with the SUV, which is black with expensive optional 20-inch wheels.
Dave said Witherspoon had a Mercedes GL-Class before choosing the Porsche. Although he's unsure what the actress is driving now, he said she rarely uses her vehicles. That explains the low odometer reading of just 7,000 miles after nearly a year on the road. But, as Dave points out, that's a good thing for the next owner.
In addition to its like-new condition, the car itself is pretty exciting. Thanks to a supercharged V6 with 380 horsepower, the Cayenne S Hybrid scoots to 60 miles per hour in around six seconds. But with its hybrid drivetrain, it also gets up to 24 miles per gallon on the highway.
That no doubt appealed to Witherspoon, who owned the car in Los Angeles. Hybrid and electric vehicles are highly popular there--especially with movie stars. Through September, the hybrid Toyota Prius was among the top five most popular vehicles in all of California.
Known for her roles in Legally Blonde, Sweet Home Alabama, and Walk the Line, Witherspoon probably also enjoyed the SUV for its size. The 36-year-old actress has three children, including a new baby -- son Tennessee -- born earlier this year. That makes the Cayenne just large enough to fit her whole family.
Shoppers wooed by the SUV's practicality -- and its celebrity heritage -- can buy Witherspoon's Cayenne for $74,900.
