    I'll say the rear looks better than the front.
    But Porsche should not be in the SUV/CUV market at all.
    The should be focused on building uber sports cars, not utility vehicles!!!


    !!!
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    IMO, the Cajun may well prove to be more successful than the Cayenne. Lighter, more nimble and maneuverable in city traffic, less of a gas guzzler too.

    Looks cool! I thought that it was going to be 5-door, but it's pretty sharp as a 2-door. Guess they don't want Land Rover to own the market!

    I agree with the general sentiment that I prefer Porsche building sports cars and not SUVs, but the buying public disagrees. The Cayenne puts up big numbers for Porsche, and they'd be foolish to say no to buyers eager to toss a whole lotta cash their ay for SUVs.

    So much for VW focusing Porsche back to its roots... I say drop the pretense, get rid of the 911, move the Boxster/Cayman to the A4/A5 platform and redirect those resources to designing a Porsche pickup truck.

    Maybe in Europe. In the US, soccer moms need 4 doors (and the only maneuverability they care about is that of the baby car seats inside the vehicle).

    In current form this design does not appeal to me at all. It doesn't look "sharp" to me, it looks akward. Seems like an amorphous blob.
    Research is what I am doing when I don't know what I am doing.

    I like this much more than the Cayenne. It looks a lot better, plus the two-door option is appealing.

    but is it true that you have to put a little roux in the tank before each fill-up?

    If you knew Cajuns... you'd know that this is THE most inappropriately-named vehicle on Earth.

    There are only two classes of vehicles for Cajuns: males drive a fullsize domestic extended-cab pickup (it's a State law here)... females drive either a Toyota Camry or a Chevy Tahoe.
