ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

The land of the stick shift SUV is an increasingly sparse one, with very few SUV models currently offering three pedals -- and none offering it for performance, but rather for lower advertised prices. The last high-performance SUV with three pedals was the Porsche Cayenne, but even the Cayenne didn't make it a sporty model. Most stick-shift Cayenne models, including all second-generation versions, had a V6.

Except, for a brief time in the late 2000s, Porsche offered the Cayenne GTS with a manual transmission. That meant you could get a Porsche SUV with all-wheel drive and room for the whole family, combined with sporty GTS suspension and the GTS's 405-horsepower V8, combined with a 6-speed manual transmission. Naturally, these stick-shift Cayenne GTS models are hugely rare, but here's one for sale on Autotrader.

Offered by Midwest Auto Exchange in the Chicago suburb of Burr Ridge, Illinois, this Cayenne GTS has traveled just over 100,000 miles since new. It's priced at $29,800, which may seem like a lot, but these Cayenne models seem to hold their value better than you might expect -- manual or not. This one is triple black, featuring a black interior, a black exterior and black wheels, and the Carfax report notes it's always been in the Chicago area.

It's an unusual car, to be clear, but a special one -- and if you're interested in a high-performance luxury SUV with a manual transmission, it's your only option.
