Cute, but not a 911. ;-) Porsche are reducing their brand equity by increasing their model range too far. Thus, in the US, 'Porsche' now means little more than 'SUV'.

This is the new Porsche Vision 357, a Cayman GT4 RS-based 'concept' created by Porsche as the first of many celebrations for its 75th birthday this year. Its shape is that of a pumped up, slammed original 356, an idea of the kind of car Ferry Porsche migh...

a lot of SUV’s because that’s what people want. They were early into the performance SUV market and virtually every other traditional performance car manufacturer has followed suit, including Ferrari.

It has also allowed Porsche to regain majority share back from VW.

The SUV’s enabled Porsche to become a very profitable company.
