I saw a women driver with Posche Cayanne in downtown Tokyo with a Orange Cone under her car and she was still driving it.A lot of people saw it and pointed to her but she thought she was so damn beautiful or the car was drawing so much damn attention that she never even cared to check and just drove off dragging the cone infront of her car!

@ KumarJ.


Anyway, why the hell didn't they remove the light post when they put the car on the truck bed?

Agrees with you to a point, but...

From what I have heard, the Cayenne now accounts for well over 50% of all Porsche sales. This is good for the companies bottom line, which in turn allows Porsche to funnel more money into their sports car line, which in turn is good for enthusiasts.

Besides, there are a lot of Porsche lovers out there who may have worked for years to attain financial means to afford a Porsche, but due to the stage of life they are in, a 2 seater sports car with no trunk space isn't practical. The Cayenne allows them to have that Porsche without having to look at owning 2 or 3 cars.

I've driven both the Cayenne Turbo and the S at the Cayenne Driving Experience, they sure don't feel like an SUV, a little heavy no doubt, but the performance / handling is almost as good as my M3.

I've seen a carrera GT parked here in SF in the parking lot I use sometimes, weird to see a car like that in a city lot. Also seen a couple of Maybach's in the same lot.

I've caught 1 of those GTs up here in Boston, and am always seeing this same dude in a Maybach, cracks me up, cause his license plate is MYBACH.. also makes me laugh he has the car, but no driver, seems to me I would only want that car if I had a driver, since most the nice features on in the backseat..

I saw a Maybach a lot last summer in boston around the Ritz Towers, and there was always 2 pretty young looking kids in it.
