Cayenne S and Infinity FX50. Not as fast, but there is more to an SUV than what you are getting at I believe.

Ha. I actually just priced one without nav, without back up camera and without sunroof, but with the diff lock and adjustable damping system and with laminated tinted rear windows and hatch and bi-xenon headlights and auto dim mirrors, heated and ventilated front seats and heated steering wheel and tow package and bose sound and XM radio and it came to $79k. Could get a Cayenne V6 with very limited options and my dealer has one in black/black on it's way for $56k but decided I'd rather get an Overland Hemi.

Re: Alternatives to the overpriced WK2 SRT8

Out of price range too! But still interesting technology. Sure to be shared in the "other" models. (X5M)

Definetly out of price range, and I agree that we'll see a diesel X5M in the near future......

They better, I have a signed contract with the specified priced from the dealer.

Same contract that says my $1000 deposit is non-refundable if I decide to cancel after the vehicle is being built.....
