Porsche's new Cayene, what do you guys think?



I think it looks.. "alright" But I have to say, they did a good job making a porsche look like an SUV.

Isn't Porsche supposed to be a sports CAR company? I personnal don't think much of it. And to be honest I think they are a little late to the market with the product, SUV's are already on the decline, and Sports wagons are hopefully replacing both SUV's and Minivans. I know they wanted to cash in on the high mark up typical of SUV's ( Ford Head office makes over $15,000 for each navigator sold), but I would have much rather preferred a replacement for the 914, a cheap affordable sports car, say under $30,000. My 2 cents.

well, they do have a bit of rally racing history, so off-roading isn't totally foreign to them...
