    Awww, what a cute SUV. Can you picture that digging through the local mudhole or climbing some rocks? I think the closest that'll get to offroading is driving across the golf course ;) As far as cute-utes go though, it does look pretty nice.

    The saddest part is that Porsche will sell EVERY SINGLE ONE they build....

    They could have saved a lot of trouble, and just started producing their "1986 Paris Dakar 959". If it was good enough to win that 8600 mile endurance race, it's probably still good enough to cruise the shopping malls....

    "Ultimate off-road abilities"...

    Yeah, right, like anyone who buys that will ever go off-road...and if they do, they'll be crying over the paint scuffs they get in the first 5 seconds.

    Indeed! [​IMG] I'm amazed at how many of the BMW, Lexus and Mercedes "SUV's" that I see around here. [​IMG]

    Interesting... I do have to say a twin Turbo V8 w/ 450 ponies sounds pretty nice though.

    I don't think this is Porche's first 4WD vehicle. I seem to recall they made an all-wheel-drive 911 for a couple of years. Does anyone else remember this?

    I was just thinking the same. Wasn't it the 959? Cost a bazillion dollars and went like a bat outta hell? Very limited edition? I seem to recall reading about it 10 or so years ago.

    Gandolf,

    The CURRENT 911 Turbo is ALL-WHEEL drive. Not really an offroad vehicle, but it sure puts the power down!!! I think it's up to about 415 Hp this year.

    You might be thinking about back in 1986 when they made an offroad version of the famous 959 supercar. They lifted it and put offroad tires on it, and it WAS 4-wheel drive!!!! It actually WON the Paris-Dakar Rally in '86, which proves that Porsche CAN make a very capable offroad vehicle!!!!

    I am equally disappointed that Porsche has gone this new direction, but unfortunately the "SUV" segment of the market is just too hot to ignore.

    This bothers me a LOT more than when they started water-cooling the 911 engines..... [​IMG]

    <hr></blockquote> Thanks, I wasn't aware they were still making them. That's a lot of horsepower for such a small &amp; light car. The last time I drove a 911, I remember it felt like I was in an enclosed go kart.

    <hr></blockquote> Let's face it, the SUV market is the cash cow for the automakers. For them to ignore this lucrative market would be dereliction of duty by the corporate officials.

    If yuo think a stock 911 is like a go-cart you sould go for a ride in my 944 ....3" lower than stock and tires are 1" lower than stock it's like riding on the ground.....but it is fun on the corners.......

    Sad. Just sad. If theres one car company that shouldn't be building an SUV it's Porsche. The next step from here is a Ferrari SUV.

    Check out the web site <a target="_blank" href=http://www.sjrixon.clara.net>www.sjrixon.clara.net</a> and watch the files for the Nurburgring run. Pretty cool stuff!

    You'll need a pretty fast connection as they're pretty big files. The videos last about 7 minutes, but the 4-wheel-drifts and smoking tires are worth it! :-)
