Porsche AG has historically been an exquisite example of what it looks like to adapt without compromising on the highlighting factors that define their vehicles.  The 911 is likely the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of how a vehicle can evolve so much, yet so little, and rationally so.  And while maybe the most evident, it is not the only vehicle made by Porsche that has changed throughout time, while having maintained the personality that consumers worldwide know and love.  

Just 2 years into the 21st century, Porsche made another adaptation to their lineup, and arguably the most extreme one yet.  Until 2002, Porsche had only ever released coupes to the market.  That was no longer the case when the manufacturer released the Cayenne, having changed the name of the game instantly.  The first Cayenne was brilliantly motivated, as the German manufacturer had come to the realization that the vast amount of 911 owners and owners of other, higher-end Porsche coupes, owned a high-end SUV additionally.  Porsche saw a demand in the market, and met the needs of tens of thousands accordingly.  And while the Porsche Cayenne is not exactly the 911, it is no less phenomenal, and like the 911, has evolved over the span of its production, without having changed beyond recognition.
