Porsche will certify ANY old German Volkscar because they NEED to get those money pits into the dealership shop or they wil go out of business. Snob factor keeps owners wanting to say" Yes, my PORSCHE is "being worked on for BETTER Performance", at the dealership". Used at water cooler to impress the weak minded.

This video can also apply to Lincoln with the Navigator, and Cadillac with the Escalade. Those SUVs might had saved those companies. While GMC/Chevy was already selling large SUVs in bestselling terms since the, Early 20th Century. Believe it or not.

(2) race car drivers (Petty, Miles). (1) race track, the ring. (3) engines Hemi,LS,Cummins. (3) motorcycles. (2) semi trucks. 4 misc eps. Santa sleigh, quattro system,foxbodys, john deere tractors. (2) deleted eps. and a Redux episode of the RX-7.. ⚡⚡⚡ and now there out of ideas maybe?

I enjoy your videos. But, BMW pioneered all of this. The X5 beat the P Car by several years. To talk about the Explorer, and then jump to the Cayenne skips the key step.

Weeelll, my friend Nolan. I think you missed to mention a little fact there... Porsche could design the Boxster easily, but Porsche never had that much money to design a whole SUV... But VW did. Porsche didn't save Porsche. VW did... Owning Porsche, VW said to a Tuareg: "Come on buddy, stay still for this plastic surgery. You'll be more desirable by common people, who actually don't like cars, especially 911s and will never buy one." ... Voila... Here's a Cayenne. For the people , who actually don't like cars, but want to sit in one... (And I know... That's basically a Porsche commercial. Probably the newer Cayenne will come soon, so you cannot mention VW in the video... But still...)

All we need is a Panamera and or Taycan shooting brake! Shove those SUV´s up your arses. BTW: They didn´t "desing" the whole Cayenne, they just added a suit (rather awfull one) to a VW Touareg. In fact, Interior, engine and gearbox quality was way under it´s price point. Too vw´ish

Fun fact, the 1st gen Cayenne was actually based on VW Touareg - the doors are actually interchangeable. So it was not Cayenne that saved Porsche but VW AG group that bought Porsche and built the car around an existing platform.

Cayenne maybe not the first sports suv but it’s undeniable became the first game changer sports suv in the world. I noticed the cayenne is a reliable although the parts maybe expensive but can easily off road using stock tyres.

Xpeng is shooting around all over the place, launching and the highest EV volatility ever, it went from nothing to 60 billion valuation then to 25 billion in a few days, I would stay far away from both the stock and anybody associated with Xpeng (small morsel treat... rough translation, which chinese laugh at), but the actually products, well, the the products themselves are absolutely fantastic for the pricing

Hey Nolan, great video. I feel like you left out some interesting information about the nature of the cayenne though, namely that it was co-developed with the VW Tourareg and the Audi Q7 in order to save costs. They shared many of the same parts, proportions and the layout, which is glaringly obvious when comparing the 9pa cayenne with the 7l Tourareg. There's no shame in that. Just feel like it was missing in the video and perhaps the porsche partnership had something to do with that. Looking forward to the next video!
