What's wrong with a Cayenne? FWIW, it's more capable off-road than some of the other premium SUVs like the ML, GL and X5. The Cayenne GTS is an absolute hoot to drive.

Cayenne I agree is a experiment went wrong.

But the Panamera is a good attempt.Personally I like this one.

Cayenne. sucks big time.

Now only I noticed.But only for the rear passengers.
The front seat as usual is adjustable and panamera has always been a driver's car.So still on my wish list.

I really wouldn't call the Cayenne an experiment gone wrong. True it was a risk Porsche were taking because they were getting into something they never had before but it paid off for them. Very few SUVs give you the combination of a big SUV and blistering sports car performance. The only other one I can think of is the Range Rover Sport Supercharged. Drive a Cayenne Turbo or even an S for that matter and then come back to reply in this thread.

The Cayenne is a hit especially in our country . The other day I was with friends chilling on the Marine Drive promenade in Mumbai and we just noticed that we saw more Cayennes in that one hour than Innovas.

Anyways this thread is about the Panamera so lets get back to it.

Please do not make fun of a poor man

Anyways till now none of us were discussing performance wise but only the looks.You might find the word UGLY more than a dozen times in this thread.And hence the comment as far as I am concenred , we need not drive one to get hold of the looks.

Performance wise nothing beats the porsche SUV.

If its only looks wise, yes I agree with you the Cayenne is ugly and so is the Panamera . In terms of power & performance the Panamera will obviously be fast if the Cayenne is anything to go by.

And no, I was not making fun of you.
