Porsche AG and other high-end auto brands performed best in the annual J.D. Power and Associates study of satisfaction after 90 days of ownership, but domestic companies showed improvement.

Porsche topped J.D. Power's 11th-annual survey that measures performance, layout appeal and customer satisfaction with cars three months after they were driven off lots.

Lincoln ranked 11th, highest among the domestic nameplates, and two Ford Motor Co. cars were the best in their classes.

The Ford Mustang topped the midsize sporty car category, while the Ford Fusion won the midsize car class.

"The Fusion I find noteworthy because the domestics for years have shown a lack of innovation in product development of cars," said Joe Ivers, J.D. Power's executive director of quality and customer satisfaction research.

Luxury automakers such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, Infiniti and Audi all finished at the top of the survey, results released Wednesday show.

The results are important to automakers because cars with better exterior, interior and driving appeal draw customers and sell faster for more money, Ivers said.

Newly launched vehicles also performed better, with consumers less satisfied with older models or those that have been freshened from previous years, J.D. Power reports.

J.D. Power, of Westlake Village, Calif., based its APEAL study on responses from more than 63,000 people who bought or leased 2006 models.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
