Porsche should give the whole idea of the Cayenne a funeral.

Porsche should never have strayed from 2 doors, 2 seats, and a maximum of six  air-cooled cylinders.

So that means that they should of never made the 911 either?  you know, since it has four seats as well ;)

That's what I thought the article was about. And I was thankful they were going to stop making them.  Guess not!

Good point..the 356 and 911 have been 4 seaters, as were their front engine sports cars...they've had a few 2 seat models like the Boxster, Cayman, Speedster, 550 Spyder, Carrera GT...but the 'volume' models have been mostly been 4 seat sports cars until the Cayenne and Panamera.

They may have rear seats, but the only people that can fit are kids or little people :lol:

I'm sorry but I like a good looking Cayenne.

Come on now, a Porsche SUV..

Even a Panamera is a Great llooking 4dr Porche.

it will actually fit 4 people and do everything the 2dr Porsches would do..

I kinda like the Panamera, but the Cayenne doesn't look all that good stock, and modded usually just adds the worst modern "custom" touches too the thing.

Definitely tight...a friend had child seats in the back of his 911 when his kids were small...  I rode in the back of a '76 911 once, had to sit crossways w/ my feet on the seat and head ducked...very tight.

My opinion on this is that Porsche went out for a pack of cigarettes back in the 80s and they never came back!  LOL.

Well, if you can call those padded tray tables in front of the firewall as 'seats'. :lol: I call cars like that 'technical two-seaters'.

The Cayenne and Panamera are too big and heavy, IMO...they are nice luxury cars, but don't really fit the traditional Porsche definition...

Dont get me wrong Chuck, I think of them as two seaters as well, but they do technically have "four seats", thats all I was pointing out

I believe the correct technical term for cars like the 911 is a "2+2".  As in 2 usable human-sized seats, plus 2 seats no one over the age of 7 will ever sit in...
