Some posters in this forum are thinking like enthusiasts and that thinking is does not always translate to the real world.

Comparing Porsche to BMW isn't a true apples/apples comparison. Porsche with their two-seaters is a niche vehicle/brand. They have only become more popular because of the Cayenne and even more so with the Macan. It was only a couple of years ago that 70% of Porsche sales worldwide was from SUVs. I'm pretty sure that stat has not deviated much today. I'm not saying that Porsche is dependent on their SUVs, but they play a significant role in Porsche's financial health and outlook.

If you think the Boxster, Cayman and 911 are the reason why Porsche is where they are at in today's automotive landscape, you are mistaken.
