Cayenne= hot, a pepper usually ground and added to spicy dishes. Maybe reference to a hot car?

I should have explained: it's the name Porsche is giving to the new SUV. The Porsche Cayenne.

Perhaps they're going to build them in French Guiana, Cayenne is the capital; perhaps indicative of how much Porsche really wants to own an SUV indentity.

the most important thing for the long term prospects of a major company is its focus on the Mission. Companies that try to change personality, are doomed to the lake of mediocrity. "Porsche" may never mean the same thing again.

It's a shame. Porsche's 'brand identity' thusfar had been simple and strong: they made street cars that you could take on the track. Now, even if they benefit from cashing in on the novelty (see Lexus, BMW, etc.) of people thinking it's fun to have a glorified minivan made by a (formerly) one-purpose, high-end automotive company, they've forever muddied the waters of their name and identity. A Ferrari will always be a fast sports car. Nothing more. A Jaguar will always occupy that vague space between a touring car and a sports car. Saying you've bought a Porsche will now always require further description before peole know exactly what you're talking about.

And Cayenne? What the heck kind of a name is Cayenne?

I love my Porsche. I would love to buy more of them in the future. But the allure of the brand is certainly diminished by this kind of short-view, market-driven mindset.

hmmmmmm, I wonder if the PCA will have to institute a "special SUV" Green Run Group for the new Cayenne owners? Both hands on the wheel, no Starbucks nor cell phones during the run.

Didn't Lamborghini make a LM2002 4 wheel drive Hummer looking vehicle, if POrsche made the SUV exotic it would be different but with sharing the same platform as a VW it will be as exotic as a rusty F-150 with muddy fenders

Gee...Lamborghini did make a Hummer looking vehicle. I don't know about anyone else, but if I had the money and if Porsche stuffed a twin turbo in it with all wheel drive and lowered the SUV a few inches, I might consider getting it, that is when I make it in the computer industry real big and I've got kids to drive to baseball practice. I do agree that it doesn't belong on the racetrack, but then again....who knows?

Lamborghini did (still might) make a SUV. As I remember it, it wasn't geared towards people who wanted an exotic SUV. At the time it wasn't the newest friggin' fad in the world to own a SUV. Of course you also have to take into account that something like 80% of Lambo's annual sales earnings is Farm equipment!
Yes Farm Equipment.

The Lamborghini LM002 "War Wagon," was a military vehicle they manufactured for some army, like the Hummer, that -- again, like the Hummer -- became a novelty purchase for the super-rich. It was never seen as a consumer-targeted product.

It would kick the Hummer's butt, as I remember, in the quarter mile, though.
