Stuttgart's highly profitable and extreme divisive SUV will not be making itself available during the 2007 model year. Porsche claims that the redesign, which debuts in Detroit and will be available in late 2007, is the major reason for the stoppage. However, the Cayenne's sales have been sliding south for close to two years and an overabundance of product may be giving the company pause.

An attempt was made earlier this year to entice would-be Cayenne owners with the so-called "Titanium Edition", which included many of the more popular options sought out by owners. This, along with the prerequisite metal trim, all came at a reduced price.

Judging by recent spy photos, don't expect a dramatic departure from the Cayenne's current slab-sided, Turbo-inspired looks when it does hit the road late next year.

      When the last of the Jaguar XKE's were new, they sat on the dealers' lots. When the Land Rover Defender was new, it too was not quick to move. Check examples of these vehicles now.

      The 2006 Cayenne is an excellent car, with the bugs worked out. It looks beautiful, and drives incredibly. Most people who hate it have never sat behind the wheel. Some people cannot swallow the concept of a Porsche SUV because they cannot think outside the box. The 911 is certainly a classic, but the Cayenne SUV represents the Porsche of the current time, because this is the decade of the SUV.

      The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition defines overabundance as "a going or being beyond what is needed, desired, or appropriate; an excess: teenagers with an overabundance of energy".

      Lamborghini better rethink building that SUV on the Audi Q7 platform. This was sales disaster,hot for about 6 months then in a free-fall. Peter Delorenzo (the Auto Extremist) has been writing months that the Cayenne had been "Piling up like cordwood" on dealers lots. Just like Chryslers one hit wonder the 300c.

      Hank, the cayenne retails for $42200 in base trim, so the prices advertised weren't necessarily discounts, they're just trying to let the public know that the price isn't as high as most would think to be able to drive one of these.

      The cayenne, is a pretty good car. It is the luck of the trade. I know people that have a Cayenne turbo with no issues and they beat the hell out of it, but there are others who have the cayenne v6 that baby it and it still has some random issues. But stopping production is a bold move on Porsches part.

      I asked my dad for a Cayman and he got me this stupid f*cking thing instead, the hard of hearing bastard. This is the stupid crap that my mom's pharma addicted trixie friend’s drive. I beat his ass for making such a big mistake, so now I have to take anger management counseling.

      Ironically one of my mom's plastic friends asked for a Cayenne and her husband accidentally got her Cayman. She got really upset because there's no room for her shopping and only one seatbelt for her purse dogs, and she has three. Now she pees on his toothbrush every night to get him back for hurting her like that, she's had to go on ten new pharmaceuticals.

      Giving a minimalist sports car and an overweight rebadged vw suv such similar names is ruining the lives of the rich, I'm glad Porsche realized that they need to take a break from production to re-name this ugly economy hedging station wagon.

      No amount of "freshening" will make this turd stink any less... the Cayenne is not only the ugliest SUV on the road, it's also the worst-looking Porsche ever designed. And, yes, it's worse-looking than the 914. Hands-down.

      The execs at Porsche should be forced to shower in cow manure every morning for greenlighting this abomination.
