I'm getting really tired of these car commercials which show the car for two seconds and then a minute full of people surfing/ rock climbing/ some metaphorical activity. I want to see the car.

I'm guessing the very base of the range will start at $37-38k and top out at around $65k.

Cayenne starts at $48k though, not many will pay $3k less to get a smaller SUV.

Nice commercial but I just don't see anyone getting that emotional about a CUV.

This is just the Cajun that's been rumored/talked about for the last 2-3 years finally getting a real name and some marketing dollars behind it. It's built on the Audi Q5 platform.

You mean the VW Tiguan platform? Hahaha. All joking aside, I do actually own a 911 so I joke with a tear in my eye. It pains me to see a purist sports car company build SUV's. After Lambo announced that they were doing one, I can only assume that Ferrari will be next.

Here is my new render - Porsche Macan with ADV.1 Wheels

Since original sketch looks very interesting, I`ve made few adjustments and fitted ADV.1 Whels on it.

Wonder if this is going to have the same engine options as say... the Caymen?

It saddens me as well, sir. The day Ferrari announces their SUV will be a tragic one.

More likely the V6 from the Panamera.

Wow that's possibly the most generic Porsche SUV concept profile they could've made. The only thing that's throwing me off is that mid-section cladding. Can't tell if it's trim or body sculpting.

All for it since I'm of the opinion that most variations of the current-gen Cayenne shit on their class competitors.

I could careless what the people who "own" it do, or what they think they do. I want to see it in action!
