Mein Auto: '09 Cayenne "S"
U235, as Mike confirms above the new Porsche Cayenne and the new (MY '13) VW T-egg have the same Gen II VA(P)G diesel engine (and drive train) so you would be getting the same diesel in a similar car for a ton less coin. Now, it would not have "the badge" but if you are just interested in the car itself -- might be worth a look. The Executive series T-egg has a very handsome leather interior too. Just a thought. I suspect the revised Q7 will also get the Gen II engine too when it is redone in 'MY 14 too. The VW interiors are very close to the superb Audi interior offerings too -- and those are almost the industry standard for luxury.
