Guilty pleasure part deux: Cayenne GTS

This car represents just about everything that not approved by us:

  • it’s an ESUVEE
  • it’s a fast ESUVEE (pointless)
  • it’s a Porsche whose name doesn’t include the words “Nine Eleven,” “Cayman,” or (at minimum) “Boxster”

And yet, whenever we pass one on the street, we can’t help but do a double take.

Why?

It definitely has a presence, whether it’s the hunkered-down stance (by SUV standards, anyway), six-pot calipers (in plain view behind airy 21″ wheels), gaping maw of a front air dam- or some combination thereof.

The Porsche DNA is there. Would we ever buy one? Probably not. Can we secretly admire one from afar? Yes.
