Tricky one. For brand purists the Cayenne remains a controversial vehicle and embodiment of a culture of bling and excess far removed from Porsche's traditional sportscars. But its ability to underwrite the business and fund the development of the 911 GT3s and Cayman GT4s beloved of the fanboys can't be ignored. And in the performance and physics defying handling it remains as close to a sportscar in an SUV body as anyone has ever made. For that alone, and especially in this most extravagant specification, the Cayenne Turbo S is the definition of guilty pleasure. You may hate the idea. But you have to admire the execution.
