    I blame the Cayenne - yeah, let's make an SUV even though all we make are sportcars - that won't dilute the brand or anything.

    They fucked up when they did that. Could have concentrated on on supercars such as the CGT and kept on plugging on the 911, Cayman and Boxsters throwing in a couple of special editions here and there.
