So while driving along with Mrs. Ontop this weekend we heard a report on NPR about the way Porsche is trying to extend its demographic by making products that appeal to more women drivers. The car in question was the new Macan... while this was on I pointed out a Panamera and Cayenne to her (we were in La Jolla over the weekend, lot of expensive metal over there) anyway... she turns to me and then says that it's a mistake for them to do that. they are trying to appeal to soccer moms by building a daily driven, grocery getter and that simply isn't the image one should have when they think of Porsche. It isn't what a car like that is supposed to be about (I nearly cried and remembered why I married her in the first place.) Her suggestion was that they call it anything else, just not a Porsche....ARE YOU LISTENING, VW?

She gets it.
