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.
The Panamera Turbo (brand new model and $50K more expensive) does not "UTTERLY DESTROY" the admittedly dated BMW M5. I could say the same about the X5M but as a former Porsche owner, that their intentions have clearly changed as I originally stated is unarguable. I agree with one of your points however, that it is all about Porsche funding now.
