The petrol powered versions are MONSTERS! Tons of HP and usually more torque. I never saw the point of making or having one, but wow they're fast!

I don't get the Cayenne, or the BMW X-series for that matter. If you want a Porsche or BMW, get a real one. If you want an SUV, get a real one (CJ, XJ, YJ, etc.)

I don't get then either, but with a diesel might snag me if I were in the market for such a device, which I am not.

Yeah it's a Porsche just like those old tractors were Porsches. If Porsche made an electric toothbrush or computers I would say "Yep, it's a Porsche."

Not with a top speed of 220 km/h and a 0-60 time of 7.2 seconds, it isn't. Geez...my 210 wagon should come fairly close to that 0-60, and could top out at a higher speed. How embarassing would that be for a Porsche owner?

It's about as much a "real" Porsche as a Jaguar with a 350 c.i. Chebby motor is a "real" Jaguar, oh wait....

Is it tricky to heel-and-toe with blocks on the pedals?

Drive one. The Cayenne Turbo is a beast in the hills.
