I know what you mean, there is something about it that just isn't right isn't there.
From what I have read on the subject they gave it an awful lot of thought and paid attention to their buyers, so I guess they know what they are doing.
On the other hand Jag were looking at doing the same time prior to Ford buying Landrover. Jag owners voted a resounding no to the idea.
I guess BMW and Merc are the leaders. They both make sports cars yet no one has said the move to SUV as hurt the brand.
Ok mybe the Merc example isn't a good one.
While perhaps these two aren't in the same class as porsche in a pure sense they are still right up ther in the sports car class, with the M3, M5 E55 CLK 55 and so on.
The GT3 has to be the best car in the world for mine. I just don't see this move as being a move that will hurt that car, and the 911 is the face people see as Porsche
