Well on a BMW board I suspect most will like the Bimmer. Personally I like the Porsche, especially the 2011 refresh version. I just see too many X's of all types around and it is hard to tell the difference between an '01 and a '11 without looking hard. The new Porsche's have a nicer interior IMHO and the base version (compares with the 3.0) is a great bargain, but you have to watch the option list! Getting into the V8 the "S" & "GTS" have 400 hp compare with the 5.0 The Cayenne Turbo offers up 510 hp with its twin turbo V8 and runs with the X5M. The Cayenne has come a long way from those early "slug sled" days of the base V6. The new V6 is 300 hp and offers a manual six speed for those so inclined. In any case they are worth a look. Now I return you to our regular BMW commercial announcements.
