It's been a while -- 2 years, apparently -- since Porsche's last television commercial, but with the arrival of this season's NFL playoffs comes a new spot from Stuttgart. The advertised vehicle is the Cayenne GTS. The GTS, in case you forgot, was revealed in Frankfurt last year, and with its 405-horsepower V8, it fills the gap between the Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo. In the commercial, the GTS driver goes to investigate some sort of Porsche urban legend. He pilots the SUV into the hills, parks overlooking the city, revs his engine, and waits to see what happens. Learn along with him after the jump.

      "The Bloodlines are Unmistakable." Funny they didn't mention any bloodlines between 1939 and 1945.

      I jest, but there are at least a couple 88mm shells floating around in Porsche's bloodline.

        Porsche as sportcar manufactor started in 1950. The Porsche AG has no blodlines in 1939 to 1945.

        The Porsche AG was founded by Ferry Porsche the son of Ferdinand Porsche. Ferry Porsche has nothing to do with Nazi Germany. So your posting is pure BS...

        My grandpa was soldier under Hitler... so am I responsible for what he did 70years ago?

      does anybody remember the boxster preview video back from 1997? its where the guy wakes up from a coma, takes out his 550 spyder, goes for a pleasure cruise, then sees a porsche boxster on the road. it then talks about how the boxster is a direct decedent of the 550, blah blah blah.

      I think they are just emphasizing the fact that their cars sounds cool

      I know it's politically incorrect to want one of these, and I have NEVER wanted an SUV of any kind, but I want one of those, same color and everything.

      I have a friend who works for Porsche. There's little Porsche technology that he does not know. There are even fewer Porsches that he has not driven. We were hanging out at a Porsche dealer's service bay last week. The stuff Porsche does is governed by their philosophy. The ad shows that. My friend, in the dealer's service bay with some cars on the lift and others with engines out showed the Porsche way of building cars. There's a connection between a Boxster, 911 and Cayenne that's more than the script on the tail.

      Porsches are cool, but not too practical. The Cayenne is both cool and practical. He's convinced me that he can help me get a good deal on one, so when my Navigator goes, I'll probably get the Cayenne. Hope he can work a deal on the Turbo...

      Best regards.

      When one dog barks...all the dogs in the neighborhood (Porsche neighborhood that is) bark right along with it.

      Nicely done.

      The cayenne rocks and its practical also. by the way its four wheel drive ability and off road ability is also pretty cool.. the only disadvantage is the lowness of it...

      Die hard Porschephile since I stopped crapping my diapers. I own a 1988 930 turbo, the scary beast! " out of control, spins if you lift off the gas, or apply gas in a corner" B.S. It's a perfect driver's car, like a Porsche should be. This Cayenne, and the Boxster too, make me giggle. I understand that to make money, a corporation needs to produce a product with mass appeal. It's a Volkswagen Taureg, with a Stuttgart badge. Just like the 924 was of the early 80's. It's a cash cow for Porsche, and it helps fund the development of the real car. I will die before the 911 does, if there is a God in Heaven!!
