Ever since seeing both concepts I always wondered how Porsche fans and enthusiasts are divided among them since both serve very vital roles in the current automotive landscape. Porsche has captivated the market with sporty SUV's and a wagon, the Panamera, that people actually want. After all, a next-generation Panamera only recently came out! On the other end sedans can thrive when done right, as proven by Mercedes, BMW and Audi, Porsche now wants a piece of that action but in a new way.

Make your choice and let us know why you chose either model. Looking forward to the responses!

Not a big fan of all these lifted wagons that automakers are trying to pass off as 'off roaders'. I am glad that we are finally seeing a fully electric estate, because I know there will be demand for it in Europe.

I agree. If you are in the market with something that has better off road performance, you may as well just get a crossover/SUV. The only other electric wagon that I think we've seen is a one off Model S that was coach built.

This naturally happens with any high end brand, the product becomes something more and isn't just for its fundamental purpose. Instead its an experience or feeling that someone is after because well, you sure don't see this happening in cheaper segments that attract buyers on entry-to-mid level salaries.

Everyone knows that these can very well get you into the trails but coming out, good luck. European cars are notorious when it comes to reliability and that alone is enough for the majority of owners to not do anything outside what the other mass of owners do. The exceptions are hardcore 911 enthusiasts that want pure fun.

I think you could arguably say the same thing about the Cayenne, as most owners of that aren't going to venture off the pavement either. Aside from loose dirt/gravel paths neither of these vehicles can be considered off roaders.

What does "coach built" mean? That's a pretty awesome-looking wagon...

Actually, a lot of owners do take Cayennes and Porsches off-road.

I would be taking my Cross Turismo off pavement quite a bit, for sure, with a fair amount of off-road.
