Enthusiasts blanched when Porsche began producing the Cayenne SUV back in 2002, but positive reviews of the vehicle, particularly the Turbo, communicated that Porsche had clearly kept the "sport" in "sport utility." Today, the Cayenne is Porsche's top-selling vehicle and a common (if not pretty) sight on the road; an observation bolstered by the news that Cayenne number 200,000 rolled out of Leipzig this week. The milestone truck was one of the new Cayenne GTS models, finished in that red that looks particularly good on its jumbo bodywork. According to Porsche, thirty-percent of Cayennes are sold here in the US (insert soccer mom joke here), the vehicle's largest market. The Cayenne has been a resounding success for the automaker, and even if you're not a fan, remember that the profits attached to the pricey überwagen help Stuttgart keep raising the bar with its offerings on the sports car side of the biz as well.
