sgCarMart – Since its startup, Porsche has had only a handful of models in its stable. Even with the addition of the Cayenne SUV and the Panamera four-door GT, the Stuttgart marque boasts just five models in its lineup - a diminutive figure compared to German automotive powerhouses such as BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz, which have no less than 10 different models each.

The same amount of controversies, perhaps, was ignited when we knew it wasn't going to be a 'true blue' sports car, but rather an SUV.
