Porsche has made a lot of money from the Boxter and 996. They will probably make evan more from the SUV - at the price of credibility with the enthusiast market.

If it's as fast around the 'ring as hearsay says, then every 996 owner who bought it as a sportscar should sue Porsche.

Porsche's image is sportscar. Start using the name to sell an SUV and they start diluting the brand. OK it might win an event like Paris Daker, but Peugeot won the East african Safari with a 4 door saloon for years, that didn't make the Peugeot a sportscar or an enthusiast car.

On the bright side, think how much Cayenne's will depreciate and how much real 911s will appreciate!

My other car is also a Porsche.
