Despite assumptions to the contrary, it appears that Porsche will not be building its own version of the upcoming Audi Q5, the Q7's smaller sibling. Porsche fans and journalists alike have been predicting a comparable Porsche version of the Q5 since news of the BMW X3-fighter hit the papers, based on the success of the Cayenne, which largely comes from the same parts bin as the Q7 minus the sheet metal.
The news from Porsche came in response to an article in the Enquirer-like AutoBild, which often takes dramatic artistic license with the news it publishes. Who could blame them, though? Porsche has been rebadging Volkswagen and Audis for a while now, and to much success, particularly with the much-anticipated Panamera (Audi A8!!) coming to dealerships in the near future. A Q5-ish Porsche seems like a logical next step.
