The Panamera Turbo utterly destroys anything that BMW currently prooduces. The Cayenne Turbo does much the same in its own segment. Porsche also manages to build them incredibly well - they are much more reliable than any other German marque. While some may take issue with Porsche being in these specific markets, the level of performance at the higher end is unarguable. As a Porsche owner, I am more than happy for Porsche to be in these markets as it funds development of the cars I care more about - but the Panamera and the Cayenne happen to be excellent vehicles in their own right.

Production numbers rule them now, like most. They began down that road before their major Peopleswagon relationship too.
