Spicy Porsche Stories: Cajun Believe This
Now that Volkswagen is the de facto owner of Porsche, after Porsche’s audacious bid to take over Wolfsburg ended in utter defeat, one has to ask oneself: “Is Volkswagen going to embarrass Porsche any further?” The answer appears to be “yes”. Let me explain…
I’m one of the people who believe that Porsche started to lose their way when they introduced the Cayenne. A big, bloated luxo-SUV which was as ugly as a Pontiac Aztek this lady. So you would think that Porsche would want to get back to making good sports cars and forget this sorry SUV. Not so.
In fact, they want to repeat it. Inside Line reports that Martin Winterkorn has confirmed that Porsche will offer another SUV, albeit a smaller one. “There will also be a new SUV, a little brother for the Cayenne, which might be called the ‘Cajun’.” said Herr Winterkorn, with no trace of sarcasm, apparently. Worldly as he is, Herr Winterkorn must be planning a spicy brand jambalaya.
“We’ll make the Porsche brand sparkle even more.” Yeah, because when I look at the Panamera, the first thing I think of is “Wow! What a stunner!”…
[Ed: Speaking of stunners, I assume full responsibility for the choice of the video. Although my preferences would be a bit on the smaller side. Just like Winterkorn’s.]
