From AE, We haven't hammered our friends at Porsche in a while, so this week presents the perfect opportunity to do so. One of our alert readers in Princeton Junction, New Jersey, did some field research of his own to confirm what our loose assemblage of dealers and wholesalers has been telling us for weeks - the standard Cayenne S is in serious trouble in the marketplace. Our reader pointed out that Don Rosen Porsche in Philadelphia has well over 30 Cayenne S models in stock and is advertising sale prices on drive time radio touting "how affordable" the Cayenne is. Our dealer network sources tell us that an $8,000 discount is common in some areas of the country, as the first-on-the-block types who got their $90,000+ Cayenne Turbos have long been sated. While the high-fiving continues over in Zuffenhausen, the long-term questions remain: When the Cayenne stops selling, then what? With their sports cars in the dumper sales-wise, what becomes of Porsche's vaunted profitability model - after they've walked away from their core-values market? We remain convinced that not only will the bloated, overpriced and not-sporty-enough SUV from Porsche fizzle out in the market (especially after more and more people get a real good look at the Infiniti FX45), but that the scope of the long-term deterioration to the Porsche brand will be incalculable. Porsche has well and truly blown it, but by the time they realize it - it will be too late.
