Porsche and Maserati go four door…………… will Ferrari, Aston Martin and Lamborghini follow …….. or stay true to their passionate sports heritage………

Porsche and VW brought us the “funny looking Cayenne” ……. and it’s nastier cousin….. the Toureg…….. then improved the Cayenne. They gave us cooler wheels and spoilers ………. THEN finally a boob job and a face lift to make it better than the cast of Baywatch by creating the arousing GTS. I certainly hope the Porsche Panamera goes through the same cosmetic surgeon ……. it is UGLY. To be launched early 2010.
 
 

In contrast Maserati employed the “Baywatch-cosmetic-surgeon-of-the-car-world”, Pininfarina and created something that shouldn’t be allowed out in public looking so sexy. (See my article on the Quattroporte)
