I would guess it will track pretty closely to the 3 Cayenne trim levels.

The big twin turbo diesel would make this vehicle ideal, to my way of thinking.

BMW USA, are you listening?

The other BMW models can't track closely to their Porsche equivalents... why would this one?

The Z4/Z4M base prices are close enough to the Boxster and Cayman base prices to invite comparison, and the 6er is in the same price range as a 911 (and the two are usually found in the same comparo tests). Obviously, Porsche doesn't have an analog to any of BMW's sedans.

The Boxter/Cayman vs. Z4 is a fair fight.

But I've never understood why anyone would compare a 911 to a 6er (unless maybe you're talking about the cabs). I think the M3 is the only BMW that warrants comparison to the 911.

The base C2 vs. the 645/650 is not too farfetched, I think, coupe or cab. Once you add an S to the Porsche's designation, it moves into a different market.
