Porsche Cayenne, Porsche Panamera: Killed after VW merger?

Porsche Panamera
Street word has it that VW might kill the Porsche Cayenne and the Porsche Panamera after completing the merger. Porsche purists will rejoice, but we are not so sure that will happen soon.

Take the following with a lifetime supply of salt, but according to a report in Car magazine, the Volkswagen Group is planning to force Porsche out of the SUV and sedan business once the current models are done with their run. That should take about seven years – the average lifespan of a car architecture.

The argument goes something like this: VW already builds plenty of sedans and SUVs through its VW and Audi brands, among others, and doesn’t need the duplicative efforts of Porsche impeding growth and sapping development dollars.
