I guess time will tell if people will accept the Cayenne. Porsche has wanted to kill the 911 line for YEARS.... But it's still putting around the roads, kept alive by Porsche fanatics. But if the Cayenne will outrun the ML55.... People are going to like it. Don't underestimate the X5. It's got a good feel to it. Is it worth the $62,000?? No. I'd rather buy an Escalade. -- Marc Escuro mgescuronopsam.com "...when all hope is gone, you know sad songs say so much..."
