My opinion's slowly changing on the subject of the Cayenne.

Time flows by without our permission, regardless of how we love the present or the past. The future always tends to move in on our comfortable establishment of lifestyle.

I think the Cayenne, the 996, the Boxster, and the rest of the "new" Porsche products are an indication that things change, and it's up to us whether we like their products or not. Personally, I see a lot of "playa hatas" out there slagging everything they can about the post '97 Porsches simply because they're pissed that Porsche stopped making aircooled models.

(Despite the fact that the newer models outperform older production models in every way, shape and form - except aesthetically, maybe.)

I'll pass my own judgement on the Cay when it debuts. For the time being, everything out there in the photographs is either cladded up to the point where you can't even begin to tell what it looks like, or is a complete decoy, or is a fantasy picture mocked up by a car magazine. Until then, all these unofficial shots are just plain BS. I like looking at 'em, but damn - I'm not gonna pass judgement until I see what *Porsche* has to say about it.
